Fear of God Devotional: The Fear of God in Your Life

How do you grow in the fear of God?

In this video, Jason Dohm explains that your fear of God grows the more you read Scripture. Through our reading of Scripture, we understand who God truly is. The God of the Bible is a fearful God. The Bible tells us what God is really like – His thoughts and ways are higher than ours.

God’s Word says that the wages of sin is death. We think of death as a natural occurrence, something distinct from sin, but the Bible teaches that death is a result of sin. The Bible makes it clear that though God is merciful in giving a long life, He is under no obligation to wait for a set amount of years. This should cause us to be grateful for life and fear Him for He controls the giving of life, the sustaining of it, and the taking away of it.

1 Samuel 2:6 (NKJV) – “The Lord kills and makes alive; He brings down to the grave and brings up.”
