theWord

Psalm 34: 8,9: “Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him! Oh, fear the LORD, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him.” The task of Israel was to attract the nations to their God. For their faithfulness to Him, God had promised to bless them abundantly, and when the nations saw this blessing they would see that the living God was with them. Fear is a call to awe, wonder, worship, and reverence. To fear God is to respond to Him in piety and obedience.
