Psalm 25:12 New International Version (NIV)
12 Who, then, are those who fear the Lord?
He will instruct them in the ways they should choose.
To fear the Lord is to recognize God’s attributes. He is holy, almighty, righteous, pure, all-knowing, all-powerful, and all-wise. When you regard God correctly, you gain a clearer picture of yourself. People are sinful, weak, frail, and needy. When you recognize who God is and who you are, you will fall at his feet in humble respect. Then God will show you how to choose your way in this life.
