The Healthy Fear of the Lord

Morning Thought: The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom—not the fear of man, circumstances, pain or loss. If our Lord Jesus was led by fear he would have never taken up his cross. Like Jesus, when you fear God you put him first. You ask, “Who are you Lord? What is your will? What do you want from me?” The fear of the Lord is completely diffferent from being afraid of God. Instead it means to stand in awe, wonder and reverence at his majesty, mystery and goodness. Today, let the fear of the Lord be your foundation. “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding” (‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭9:10‬, NIV‬‬).

Born and raised on Long Island, New York, I migrated to Australia in 1999. That’s when I married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted our church and Bible School. We’re now the proud parents of four children, ranging in age from nine to twenty-two. We’re still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia ( We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School ( I love to write and encourage God's people. And something that many people don't know, I'm a DJ as well (aka DJ SOL Vibes).
