What Is Fear Of The Lord?

Have you ever pondered what "fear of the Lord" means?

Proverbs 8:13 (New King James Version)

     The fear of the LORD is to hate evil;
      Pride and arrogance and the evil way
      And the perverse mouth I hate.
Psalm 111:10 (New King James Version) 

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

Hebrews 12:28 (New King James Version)

     Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken,
     let us have grace,  by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence
     and godly fear.

Fear of the Lord is respecting Him. It is having a reverence for Him. It is knowing and trusting that He knows what is best, and obeying what He says.'s
