Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of June 10, 2018

“But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings; and you will go forth and skip about like calves from the stall.” Malachi 4:2

Have you ever pondered the meaning of the fear of The Lord? Also, how does that relate to the innocent delight of calves frolicking in the fields of springtime? I propose that the fear of the Lord is in choosing to really BELIEVE that God is Who He says He is, and that He does what He says He will do as He has revealed Himself in His Word! Relinquishing our right to question and to understand everything just seems to silence a lot of the besetting “what ifs”, doubts and fears that can cause us to stumble along our walk of faith. There is a dawning revelation and a deeper rest of faith in accepting the sovereignty of God and His ways that deeply heals our souls in the peace of knowing Him and experiencing His extravagant love. So, in the appropriate fear of the Lord, let healing wings of faith rise in our hearts that sets us free to leap and skip in the joy of the Lord!
