Do you ‘fear’ God?
Fear 😨 ? Fear of God refers to fear or a specific sense of respect, awe, and submission to a deity. People subscribing to popular monotheistic religions might fear divine judgment, hell or God’s omnipotence.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:6-7
In the New Testament, this fear is described using the Greek word φόβος (phobos, “fear/horror”), except in 1 Timothy 2:10, where Paul describes γυναιξὶν ἐπαγγελλομέναις θεοσέβειαν (gynaixin epangellomenais theosebeian), “women professing the fear of God”, using the word θεοσέβεια (theosebeia).
You, O Great Jehovah, are the only true God, and without fearing and knowing about You, all other knowledge is made faulty. And without knowing You personally, pursuit of knowledge is futile and unable to help us. Let us not be like those who are “ever learning but never able to come to the knowledge of the truth,” but let us delve ever deeper into your truths, Amen.
