This morning I looked up the old English definition of the word “Fear” and it meant “respect and reverence” when talking about God. Wouldn’t it stand to reason that all of the “Fear Not’s” would mean just that; not to respect anything ungodlike whether it is sickness, sin or disease? When we fear God and nothing else, there is perfection and harmony and there can be no imperfection in perfection.
Galatians 5:22-23 states, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” That is achieved only by “Fearing God” and none other.
