Fear of God Devotional: The Blessing of the Fear of God

How is the fear of God a blessing?

In this video, Carlton McLeod explains how the fear of the God is a blessing to believers. Once the believer begins to see who God is, how great He is, how awesome He is, how loving and how holy He is, there is a reverent trembling that results. God has saved us from the pit of hell. How can we purposefully continuously displease Him? I dare not do such a thing!

It is a part of discipleship, where the believer sees God as being supremely holy. The blessing comes when the believer says to himself, “I dare not sin against this God, I dare not hurt this God who has healed all of my hurt.” Ask yourself if there are sins or desires in your life that you’re stubbornly refusing to surrender to God and repent of them.

James 1:17 (NKJV) – “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.”
