Delight in the Fear of the LORD

Psalm 33:18 AMP Behold, the Lord’s eye is upon those who fear Him [who revere and worship Him with awe], who wait for Him and hope in His mercy and loving-kindness.

Beautiful in His sight
Held in His gaze
The apple of His eye
Sheltered -Ps 91:1
Covered beneath His wings -Ps 17:8; Prv 7:1-2

Treasured and greatly desired
His delight -Ps 45:11; Ps 147:11

 

Is the one who
… Bows down in delight before the King.

A sweet incense
A living sacrifice -Eph 5:1-2; Rom 12:1-2
Delight in the fear of the LORD
Delight in the Word -Ps 119:16; Mt 4:4
Savor the wonder and awe of the Kings presence
Upheld in His mighty right hand
Fullness of joy
Forevermore. -Isa 41:10; Ps 16:11

Lord Jesus prepare our hearts to bow down in delight at Your feet before Your throne. Let our worship be as incense, pleasing and acceptable in Your sight. Let Your word be the joy of our hearts, that our lips may praise You. Help us abide, sheltered beneath Your wings, kept as the apple of Your eye in the wonder and awe of Your presence, upheld by You mighty right hand in the fullness of joy.

May the God of peace … the great Shepherd of the sheep … make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. -Heb 13:20-21 (NKJV)

Isaiah 11:3 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.

Psalm 112:1 Praise the LORD! Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, Who delights greatly in His commandments.

Psalm 147:11 The LORD takes pleasure in those who fear Him, in those who hope in His mercy.

Psalm 86:11-12 Teach me Your way, O LORD; I will walk in Your truth; Unite my heart to fear Your name. I will praise You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and I will glorify Your name forevermore.

Psalm 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments; His praise endures forever.

Word Study

From: NetBible Isa 11:3
* The Hebrew text reads literally, “and his smelling is in the fear of the Lord.” In Amos 5:21 the Hiphil of רוּחַ (ruakh, “smell”) carries the nuance of “smell with delight, get pleasure from.” There the Lord declares that he does not “smell with delight” (i.e., get pleasure from) Israel’s religious assemblies, which probably stand by metonymy for the incense offered during these festivals. In Isa 11:3 there is no sacrificial context to suggest such a use, but it is possible that “the fear of the Lord” is likened to incense. This coming king will get the same kind of delight from obeying (fearing) the Lord, as a deity does in the incense offered by worshipers. Some regard such an explanation as strained in this context, and prefer to omit this line from the text as a virtual dittograph of the preceding statement.

    I love your blog and info. God is so good. I am starting a feather extension business, and I have been looking for an image. this one has caught my eye. I was wondering if I could use it.?
    I am a student at Bethel School of Supernatural ministry in Redding California, and I am selling feather extensions to pay for school and missions trips. God has given me psalm 91 he covers me in His feathers, and also Malachi 4:2 healing in His wings.
    I also am learning to paint. I would love to use this as a reference, did you take this photo? or find it? Blessings. Shalom.

    Hi Mary
    I made this image on the computer with a tool called Gimp. I love to make these as worship to the Lord. Right before Christmas this year the Lord allowed this one and another image I made to be sold as posters. This was a blessing to our family since my husband has been out of work for quite awhile. I’d ask you for a $10 donation to use this image. I can put another text on it if you’d like or you could see it in different dimensions. This one here I made to fit the dimensions of an 11×17 poster. I have another one that looks wider.

    Karen
