The FEAR OF GOD is a thing that is important beyond imagining.  It is a safe haven that cannot be overcome or overestimated.

The FEAR OF GOD will move you to avoid pornographic images and websites, even if no person will ever know and no one in the world is aware of what you are doing.

The FEAR OF GOD will inspire you to be honest, even when you are hidden in the darkness, and your flesh is seducing you to cheat on your test or accounting books.

The FEAR OF GOD will stir you to speak the Truth, even as all men around you mock it and spew lies and deception.

This FEAR is bright and clean and powerful — it is the one true HOLY FEAR — the one true HOPE that will consume all the shadowy, poisonous, lesser fears that seem to continuously lay siege to the human heart.

“The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, turning a man from the snares of death.” (Proverbs 14:27)

“The fear of the LORD leads to life: Then one rests content, untouched by trouble.” (Proverbs 19:23)

    What does the fear of God look like? The hebrew word used in proverbs is here:
    http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=H3374&t=NKJV

    The usual usage is “fear, terror” but I think the more appropriate definition are the last three, “awesome or terrifying thing”, “fear (of God), respect, reverence, piety”, “revered”.

    We live in a world where true reverence is few and far between. “awesome” has totally lost it’s meaning, we don’t really have any good replacements that convey the awe that God should be described with.
