“Fear the LORD, you his holy people, for those who fear him lack nothing.” (Psalms 34:9)
Is God some big overbearing parent that needs to be appeased? Is He a harsh taskmaster that demands obedience and waits to punish any error? No, no and no. We serve a loving heavenly Father who sent His only son to die in our place. There is no greater love, than His for us.
Yet He remains the creator of the universe, whose footstool is the earth. He spoke all that is into being with a word. He has always been, omnipotent and omnipresent. Our small minds cannot begin to image His overwhelming size, power and strength.
So lets not let His love cloud our awe and sense of fear. That holy fear that is based in respect and acknowledgement of who He really is.
Quick Prayer. “I am in awe of you Lord.” Amen
