Awakened to the Fear of the Lord

Melissa — I have been hearing about awakening coming for a while now but what are we awakening to? The thing that hits me the loudest is that we are being Young man waking up in bed and stretching his arms at homeawakened to the fear of the Lord.  I’ve heard from several places that the church has to return to the fear of the Lord, and as He sheds insight on this subject it makes more and more sense why we cannot live outside of it.  Well, we have been living outside of it for the most part and that just isn’t working.  If we are awaking to the fear of the Lord, what have we been in? We’ve been operating in fear, but it’s a substandard fear. A substandard fear is fear of lack, death, pain, trauma, loss, etc.  We, however, are waking up to what we were meant to operate in, which is the premium fear of the Lord. In this premium fear we operate out of awe, reverence, trust, insight and understanding.  This is a totally different way of living! Substandard fear is unclean fear, but premium fear of the Lord is clean fear.  This obviously leads to totally different outcomes.
