The Invitational Alarm clock

I strongly suspect that fear if we look at it carefully in life is the call of God. When a human being experiences (fear) yirah, that experience directly awakens a spiritual consciousness just as an alarm clock awakens a sleeping person. Compared to moments of yirah, we may, indeed, be asleep much of our lives. Or if not asleep most of us are in the past or the future with our thinking, most of us are not present, we are on autopilot. But when overtaken by fear yirah, we experience a tremendous spiritual reality that is ordinarily hidden from us. Yirah gives us a direct experience of the call of God in that very moment, pointing our hearts directly to God being with us. Face your fear today and invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and his church
