On Fear of God …

Posted on December 5, 2010. Filed under: The Good Book |

Some excerpts from the Good Book …

Fear of God is the beginning of knowledge. This fear is instruction in wisdom and humility.

The reward for humility and fear of God are riches and honor for life. No one is greater than the one who fears God.

He, who fears God will accept His discipline and those who rise early to seek Him will find favor.

Do not be afraid of sudden panic or of the ruin of the wicked when it comes. God will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught.

Many are the plans in the mind of man, but it is the purpose of God that will be established.  In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make straight your path.

God is a strong tower and the righteous man runs into it and is safe. God lifts him out of his low estate and raises up his head so that many are amazed at him.

See with your eyes that I have labored little and found for myself much rest.

‘Give me neither poverty nor riches.

Feed me the food that is needful for me,

lest I be full and deny Thee and say – ‘Who is God?’

–  Or lest I be poor and steal and profane the name of my God’.
