How do I wrap up a series on the fear of the Lord?
I’ve wondered that, but have struggled to come to any clear conclusion.
“For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end–it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.”
“Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the LORD; I will take joy in the God of my salvation. God, the Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet like the deer’s; he makes me tread on my high places.” Habakkuk 2:3 and 3:17-19
Recently, I’ve been reminded over and over that He is working, that He is coming, and that those who persevere through these days and cling to Him will be received into the Kingdom. Perhaps one of the most powerful blessings that comes from fearing the Lord is the close fellowship it brings and the assurance that no matter what things look like today, He will fulfill all that He has promised and that for those who love God all things work together for good (Romans 8:28).
Oh, for grace to love Him more!
