Fear Brings Enlightenment

 WEDNESDAY

The remainder of the week will be spent looking at some of the Benefits of Fearing the Lord. Today, we will see that the Fear of the Lord enlightens the mind:

 
NAU Psalm 25:14 The secret of the LORD is for those who fear Him, And He will make them know His covenant.

NIV Psalm 25:14 The LORD confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them.

KJV Psalm 25:14 The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant. {and…: or, and his covenant to make them know it}

 
The fear of the Lord also teaches us NOT to sin:

 
NAU Proverbs 16:6 By lovingkindness and truth iniquity is atoned for, And by the fear of the LORD one keeps away from evil.

NIV Proverbs 16:6 Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for; through the fear of the LORD a man avoids evil.

KJV Proverbs 16:6 By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.
