Psalm 25:12 What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.
The man who fears God here is one who loves, trusts and is careful not to offend. This man wants to please God and hates sin. This fear is to have an awesome respect for God. It is to have a reverent respect for God.
The person who approaches God with this attitude can expect that God will teach and guide him. Many of us want God’s direction and guidance to please us and not to please Him. We want God to direct us to our success and to fulfill our expectations and desires not His.
That is the opposite of fearing Him. When He is supreme and we want what He wants then we can look for His direction.
