Fear or Faith

It’s time to pray for revival. One of God’s prerequisites for revival is a righteous fear of the Lord. In the book of Proverbs (that we are reading this month if you are reading with me) mentions fear or fear of the Lord 14 times. Note to self: we should take this serious then, if the wisest man in the world mentions it over and over to draw our attention to it, we must take it seriously. I’m afraid that we, personally and as a church have gone to sleep and we must wake up the sleeping giant and the giant of the Holy Spirit within each one of us. This can only happen when we learn to fear God. What does it mean to fear God? To fear God, you must merge two concepts: one part of fear involves being afraid and the other is being in awe! We must merge these two feelings, emotions, and realities to have a healthy, righteous fear of God. When we combine these two aspects of fear, it will take our lives and turn us into people that take God seriously, thus we will be open and moving toward revival. Unfortunately, we and the church have become casual about our fear of God. We have become casual about our approaching God. We maybe doing all the things that we see and count as being spiritual, but are we just going through the motions of spirituality without the power of God because we have no fear of Him? I know a lot of questions, but I truly believe as we pray today, we need to be asking the Holy Spirit to help us get back to the holy fear of God we’ve been called to and get ready for revival to take us into the fight with Satan and his world. Let’s pray for revival and get ourselves ready for battle.
