"The Lord is exalted, for He dwells on high; He will fill Zion with justice and righteousness, and He will be the stability of your times, abundance of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is Zion's treasure."
“The fear of the Lord is Zion’s treasure.” It isn’t a treasure to the World, to the people who don’t know Him. To them, there is nothing valuable in the fear of God. Religion is useful to the World, because it can be manipulated but genuine fear of God is considered old-fashioned, useless superstition, because it gets in the way of “progress.”
But where the fear of God is found, there is stability, salvation, wisdom and knowledge. History demonstrates this, and we can see it in our own time as well.
Wherever the Lord Jesus is known, He fills His people with justice, righteousness, and stability. No man, no political party, no amount of education, and no government can bring these things about, without the fear of God.
Lord Jesus, where there is no fear of You, there is nothing but fear. We know that only You can bring peace, justice, and righteousness to our nation. Lord, be known among us, Your own people, and through our testimony and life of godly fear, make Yourself known to the people who see us. Be the stability of our time. Amen.
