Romans 3:18 KJV There is no fear of God before their eyes.
Romans 3:18 NLT “They have no fear of God at all.”
Romans 3:18 MSG They never give God the time of day.
A wonderful woman of God whom my wife, Valarie and I know, said, “The fear of God isn’t being afraid of Him, it’s being afraid of being away from Him. It doesn’t keep us at a distance, it keeps us close.” – Kim Saylor, Co-Pastor of Jubilee Bible Church.
As a child of God, the God who is LOVE, we need not be afraid of Him. It is however, when I recognize just how awesome He is, that at the sound of His voice all that is was created that I realize just how fearless we should be. Especially, when I see that from the beginning all He has done has been so He could express the very nature of who He is to me.
The more I learn of His great love for me the more I want to stay in His glorious presence. It is a love that frees us from all fear. Unfortunately, too many have a wrong view of God that either keeps them running from Him or just ignoring His attempts to develop a relationship with Him. Give Him some time today. The fear of God will free you from all fear and lead you closer into a glorious relationship with Him.
