In the fear of the LORD one has strong confidence, and his children will have a refuge (Proverbs 14:26, ESV). If the word “his” is understood to refer to the Lord, then those who love the Lord have a place to hide and be protected from the arrows that Satan surely casts about. Certainly, when following the Lord’s way, the obedient one has minimized, if not altogether eliminated, internal spiritual aggravations in life because the life lived is not one’s own (Galatians 2:20). This kind of response is fear and reverence toward Him who is holy and Judge of all.
