FSFD010 Song Title: Our Treasure – Isaiah 33:6 (If you don’t have a Bible handy, you can read this passage at BibleGateway.com)
It is our treasure and His. It is our treasure and His. It is our treasure and His.
The reverent fear and worship of the Lord, of the Lord, of the Lord.
About Bonita B. Evans
Since I was young I have felt God's presence in my life. I have been singing Christian music since I was a small child. Reading and studying the Bible have become more and more important in my life. In 2008, songs started coming into my head when reading, driving and also sleeping, so I decided to write them down and share them. For Christmas 2008, I recorded a ten song CD for my family and friends. For Advent 2009, I shared the first version of "A Flame in My Heart" with my church, family and friends. In 2011, I created and shared in this blog "40 Songs for 40 Days" for Lent. For Advent 2011 and 2012 I posted revised versions of "A Flame in My Heart". For Lent 2013 I reposted "40 Songs for 40 Days". I am not sure why this has all happened but I consider it to be a gift from God.

Thought from Isaiah 33
This chapter celebrates a great victory, and is prophetic of the method of the final triumph. In the first thirteen verses we have the prophet’s appeal, in which there are two movements. In the first he describes the foe, lifts his cry to God, and declares his confidence in God. In the second he makes his appeal, describes the need, and announces the divine answer.
Following this is a graphic description of the effect produced by the consciousness of the presence of God as of a fire. The sinners are afraid. The righteous dwell in safety in the midst of its burning. In the rest of the chapter we have in detail the answer of Jehovah to the appeal of His servant. It is the vision of the King and of the land. The coming of the King will mean the safety of such as put their trust in Him. They will muse on the terror, but it will have departed, and the city will be quiet and full of peace.
The prophet then breaks out into an exceedingly beautiful description of the safety of the city, God-delivered and God-governed. Jehovah will be to it a river of defense. In the midst of it, He will administer its affairs in justice. With such a God, all the attempts of the enemy to overcome the city are useless. Everywhere there is healing for the people, both physically and spiritually.

Thank you, Bonnie. This one is a tiny treasure. Looking forward to the days and music ahead. Go With God.
I’m thinking about the fear of The Lord as “the key to this treasure.” Fear is not a central thing in my relationship with God, but I know that there have been times when I have experienced that fear. Maybe we do need to tremble before the awesomeness and unpredictability of God at times to find entrance into real intimacy with God. Like a child who is uncertain going into a parent’s space but is received with encircling arms when she dares to go there.
I do think all believers will tremble fearfully at God’s presence and power when judgement day comes. Sometimes I have felt it more as a fear of failing or disappointing the One who gives us everything. Then I have to remember He loves me no matter what!
