Topic: The Spirit of the Fear of the Lord
Isaiah 11:1-2; Luke 4:1-19
5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
The Spirit of “the fear of the LORD” is the reverential fear of God. This is where the influence of the anointing begins. The anointing gives reverence to the Lord and does not do its own will. It does the will of the Father. Don’t use the anointing to tell God what to do. The anointing hears and obeys God. It submits to God’s authority even if it is authority delegated to human beings.
Your anointing must not be used to undermine your spiritual leaders.Jesus Christ, the anointed One, lived on earth with the fear of the Lord. He submitted to the Father with reverential fear and did the things that pleased Him. Even when He was faced with death, He yielded to the Father’s will (Hebrews 5:5-9).
Submission makes the anointing beautiful but rebellion mars it. Sadly, many so-called anointed individuals nowadays are spiritually disobedient. They disobey God when they disobey God-instituted authority in the Church and society.
Pray that in all you do, may the fear of the Lord be strong in you that it'll be the determining factor.
