The fear of the Lord - reverence that leads to obedience

"There was a man in the land of Uz whose name was Job, and that man was blameless and upright, one who feared God and turned away from evil." - Job 1:1

In learning about this verse I heard "the fear of God" defined as reverence which leads to obedience. Then I looked a little further down and saw verse 5, "And when the days of the feast had run their course, Job would send and consecrate them, and he would rise early in the morning and offer burnt offerings according to the number of them all. For Job said, “It may be that my children have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts.” Thus Job did continually."

I want a fear of the Lord that leads me to reverent obedience. I want to seek the Lord and revere Him enough to ask for forgiveness for the sins of even my children.

Do you fear the Lord? Like really fear Him? Do you rise early in the morning and pray for your family? I know many an older man that swears the only reason they made it in the long run was their willingness to rise and seek the Lord.

Just for reference here the word is, yir'ah {yir-aw'}: respect, reverence, piety, revered.
