The Lord's unfailing love

Psalm 33:18-19
But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him,
on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,
to deliver them from death
and keep them alive in famine.
Though our Lord is in charge of everything, he does care for us personally.. His “eyes” are on those who “fear Him” and upon those who “hope in His unfailing love”. This is such a comforting thought. The other day, a dear friend was telling me how she delights in reading the psalms. I do too. In this psalm, the Lord promises to save us and care for us...

One question: what does 'fearing the Lord' mean? In Proverbs 7:1, we read that "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. Fearing the Lord is about respecting what He tells us. If we love the Lord, then we do what is pleasing to Him and not what we want to do. It is not always easy..however if we think that Jesus died for us and conquered death for us to be reconciled with our Father in heaven, then we must carry on and persevere. Have a blessed week-end.
