Some people are claiming that they are children of God and yet they did not have the fear of God in their lives the fear of God should be the number one priority in our heart as a child of God because the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom it is very bad to live a life which is not in God direction he is our marker so therefore we have to fear God in all what ever we are doing God fear in our hearts should be the first thing to consider.

So if you call yourself a believer and the fear of God is not in your life then you are just deceiving yourself for nothing the fear for God is to run away from what God does not won't, the fear of God is to obey all what he told us to do, the fear of God is to run away from sin brother and sister let cultivate the fear of God in our life today before it's too late because God love for me and you is unconditional so let put him first in our hearts all what he say we should not do please don't do it, all what he say we should do let try and do it and if you have the fear of God in your life there are some benefits attached to it such as
It make you become closer to God
It enables you to have self control
It enable you to run away from sin
It enable you to have prosperity
It enable you to have breakthrough in life
Therefore the fear of God is very Important in our lives as children of God if you are a smoker before change for better , if you are an arm rubber before please Change for good, if you are used to drinking alcohol before the time is still on you can change for better.
Now let consider the consequences of not fearing God
You can later be wasted by the devil
Your life will be miserable
You will suffer for all your wrong did both on earth and heaven
You may later die in sin
You will be miss lead by Satan
God will get angry at you

The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. I normally vsay this I only Respect man I can never fear a man. The only being we are to fear is God. And the fear means having a deep respect, reverence and having this shock about His mighty Power. If you must have wisdom you must fear the Lord for He is the giver of the wisdom. He gave widsom to Solomon and made him the wisest man on earth in his days because he has this fear for the God of his father. When you say you fear God truly they should be this sign of total submission to God authority.

Joseph was able to fulfil his dream because he feared the lord. He knows what God can do to him if he mistakenly falls. So because of that fear, he was able to fulfil his dream.The fear of the lord brings blessings. At a point the children of Israelite were swimming in a mighty blessing when they return back to the God of their fore father's. And the land he gave to them are filled with milk and honey. The fear of the lord brings promotion. The children of isrealite did not see or did not receive any help from God not until they cried to God. After crying God heard their prayers and sent a man. He this sir/ma when ever you fear the lord and He is ready to promote you from one level you another, He sent a man. Only what you need to shift from that position that you are currently now is just a man sent from God.

@Abiodun:the fear of God is not to be frightened by God or to be threatening by God but to do as commanded even in an inconvenient moment. It is not and can't be substitute for any other thing. It is making God please always. It is make the things of God your meat. It is been satisfied pleasing God always

To fear GOD does not necessarily mean being frightened or scared of GOD, but rather it is the extreme awe or reverence of the Most High. The deep hallowing of His wonderful and great name. It means Worship, giving all to Him, self-sacrifice. A state of surrender, withholding nothing from Him. This Fear is best summarised in the below acronym as:

F - Fidelity
E - Exaltation
A - And
R - Reverence
Fear of GOD simply means love of GOD.

We describe or rather we are taught about GOD and His actions as tyrannical and autocratic. And we, in response to this assumption, we tend to exhibit the wrong kind of fear (unpleasant feeling of fright). This kind of fear is not borne out of love but of terror.
Most times, we feel threatened by the tale of hell, that we out of fear discharge our heavenly duties. Duties like going to church, evangelizing, keeping the commandments etc. This is not the kind of fear we are talking about. This fear ruled the hearts of many in the Old Testament, and that's why the Bible says in Joel 2:23
"They worship me with their lips, but their hearts were far from me".

They (the old testament folks) were so obsessed with the works of the law, that they keep the law, not because they love GOD but because they are scared of the inviting the wrath of GOD upon them.

Now, GOD is not overly concerned with the works of the law, He only wants Your heart, and that is where the true fear of GOD comes in. He wants you to love Him and magnify Him from the depths of your heart and not hypocritically.

As earlier stated, true fear of GOD is love of GOD. GOD loves and interacts intimately with those that fear Him,
"And the secret of the LORD is with them that fear Him..." - Psalms 25:14.

Let the fear of GOD dwell richly in us. Amen.

@Phaithh:fearing God is reverencing God and give him his that which belongs to him

People thinks that fearing God is shivering like a door fish when he appears but it is not so. Until we bexome cautious of his presence we can't say we fear or reference him.
I love all your points. They are astonishing

The fear of God is the beginning of Wisdom. Many believers today claimed to be a genuine child of God yet doesn't fear God in some situations. When you call yourself a believer that shows all your activities has been subjected under God and you are no longer the controller of your life but God.


There are so many things that we believers wished to have and there are also some places we wished we can get to. Though we can get to all those places and also get all the things we wished for but untill we obey the rules and regulation of the kingdom those virtues can't be delivered unto us that's why God said he doesn't use an untrained fellow for kingdom work.

We are in a kingdom governed by rules and regulations though Grace is avaliable to us all but yet this grace shouldn't be misused that's why we as a covenant child of God that want to excel in this life must diligently obey the rules and regulations of the kingdom.

Looking at the life of Joseph, he wouldn't has becomed a prime minister hadn't been he has slept with his Master wife. Even when she was showing him different signs Joseph still hold fast to his word and also to his conviction which is "I FEAR GOD". Same thing he told his Master wife that he can't do this evil thing against God.

When a believer is always conscious of God there's no height God won't take that person to. We can all see after Joseph denied himself of that pleasure he became so Wise that his Master also testified to it. Greatness in the kingdom is not hard so far you lived a life of obedience. Fear God and he will Raise you above all things.

**Always put God first **

@Abiodun:there is great blessings for those that fear God. No one fears God without been rewarded. Like we said the fear of God is obedience to God. Obeying is not hearing instructions alone but doing as commanded. So for the obedient abundance is theirs. Many have been granted because they feel obedience is late and bring delayed blessings but true blessing of God's is what maketh rich and added no sorrow. So let us stand for Godd no matter who is with us or against us. The fear of God is the beginning of creativity innovation increase and many more. Fear God and depart from evil. Dont delay it.
