God gave us a survival instinct which the world calls fear. But wait a minute, does this definition doesn’t line up with the Word of God?
God commanded us to fear Him and Him only. The revelation I got today was this: fear is reverence and anything or anybody you fear takes God’s place.
• You either fear God or something else.
• What you fear is what you reverence
• What you fear is what you idolize
• What you fear really becomes your god.

This is why God, repeatedly advises us not to fear.
Isa 44:8, "Do not fear, nor be afraid; Have I not told you from that time, and declared it? You are My witnesses. Is there a God besides Me? Indeed there is no other Rock; I know not one."
Deut.1:21, 20:3-4, 2Chron. 20:17, Isaiah 41:10, 13, 43:1, 5, 44:

Isaiah 11:3-4
“His delight is in the fear of the Lord, And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, Nor decide by the hearing of His ears; But with righteousness He shall judge the poor, And decide with equity for the meek of the earth”.
This type of fear gives God His place. It is waking by faith having confidence in God and His Word. Doing His will regardless of what it looks like or feels like.
Jer 2:18, 3:8

This is Jesus’ advice from Matthew 10:28, "8 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."
