We fear those who can take away our home, our family and our lives. But whom we should fear the most is the Lord Most High. He alone has authority to take our lives and cast us into Hell. Fear God and live long in the land.
“Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God. Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.”
No one has authority over us other than God Almighty. He raises kings to prominent positions and we are subject to our king. We are to obey our king inasmuch as we obey God. We ought not to fear, for God will protect us in our obedience.
All glory belongs to God our Father. He gave His Son Jesus so that we might live abundant lives fearing Him. However, we ought not to fear others. They may have words of reproof and correction, but without God’s Spirit, those words are like a vapor.
Give honor to God so that we might grow in the spirit and the wisdom of the Almighty. His Word is perfect; His precepts are just; there is no other God than God Himself. His mind is unchanging and His will unfailing. Have no fear.
