“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear– I Peter 3:15. Fear in this verse does not mean fear in the way that we normally use this word fear, to be afraid of something, rather it means to speak honorably and respectfully for God. When we acknowledge the blessings and presence of God in the depths of our hearts, where we have placed His healing Word, then we are truly ready to enjoy the honorable privilege to speak for Him with purposeful reason of the hope that is in you.” ~LMJ~
Psalms 119:11, and 50-51:
-11: Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
-49: Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope.
-50: This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.
