The Bible says that the fear of the Lord is the 'beginning of wisdom' (Psalm 11:10) and the 'beginning of knowledge' (Proverbs 1:7). Proverbs 14:27 even calls it a 'fountain of life'! But do people really understand what is meant by 'the fear of the LORD'?
Drastically different from the frightful trembling we feel in response to a threatening person or dangerous situation, the 'fear of the LORD' is a deep sense of reverence and awe of the One who created us, loves us, and saved us.
With comforting words of instruction, renowned Bible scholar Derek Prince explains how the fear of the Lord will help you gain wisdom, overcome pride, and discover peace.
