Fear of the Lord – Comes from the Word
The Fear of the Lord was to be the motivation of the Law of Moses. God wanted the people’s love for and fear of Him to motivate them to obedience.
Sadly over the years as Israel was influenced by Gentile pagan nations, they lost their fear of the Lord and replaced His Word with traditions.
[Therefore] the Lord said:
Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths
And honor Me with their lips,
But have removed their hearts far from Me,
And their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men,
Therefore, behold, I will again do a marvelous work
Among this people,
A marvelous work and a wonder;
For the wisdom of their wise men shall perish,
And the understanding of their prudent men shall be hidden.
PRAY FOR GOD TO SEND THE FEAR OF THE LORD UPON ISRAEL THAT SHE WILL TURN FROM THE TRADITIONS OF MEN AND OBEY THE WORD OF THE LORD.
