The person who fears God alone need never fear any person or group of people. The fear of God is the fear that cancels fear.
God cares for His own. It did not cost much to purchase sparrows in the market. Yet the Father knows when a sparrow falls to the ground, and the Father is there. If God cares for sparrows in such a marvelous way, will He not also care for His own who are serving Him? He certainly will! To God, we are of greater value than many sparrows.
God is concerned about all of the details of our lives. Even the hairs of our heads are numbered—not “counted” in a total, but numbered individually! God sees the sparrow fall to the ground, and God sees when a hair falls from the head of one of His children. When He protects His own, He protects them down to the individual hairs. There is no need for us to fear when God is exercising such wonderful care over us.
The Bible says; “Only fear the Lord, and serve Him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things He hath done for you” (1 Samuel 12:24).
Also read: Psalms 31:19; 34:7-11; 103:11-17.
Action assignment: Take a few moments to consider the great things the Lord has done for you. Thank Him for these evidences in your life of His worthiness to be feared.
