11 Make vows to the LORD your God, and keep them.
Let everyone bring tribute to the Awesome One.
12 For he breaks the pride of princes,
and the kings of the earth fear him. – NLT
A prayer from my Journal, many years ago:
“Lord, I never want to forget that You are powerful and dreadful and greatly to be feared.
I don’t want to forget Who it is with whom I am dealing.
I don’t want to take Your purposes and will flippantly or lightly – personally, or with how You choose to build Your church.
I ask for wisdom, skill and confidence in You.
May I always and only fear
If you do not understand how holy fear can exist alongside love and devotion to the Living God, it is very likely that you do not know Him at all.
Do not be afraid to fear Him.
Be afraid if you do not.
