Psalm 103:13 As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him.
What does it look like to fear the Lord?
How does one live, act, think, speak who fears the Lord?
Fear of the Lord - not afraid of you Lord, cowering around you
But holding you in the highest esteem
holding you in awe
One who fears you like this
glorifies you with how they live
lives with knowing what their purpose is - to glorify you - to make you known to others
who obeys your precepts, laws, commands
who praises you in the storm, when things don't make sense
who trusts in you explicitly, completely, always
who is grateful for what one has, not reaching for something else
who is content just in the fact that you are God, great, awesome, eternal, everlasting, and nothing more is needed
to want to know more about you
spend time with you
in your word
to thank you for everything and anything because it all came from you.
I think this is what it looks like to fear the Lord and to live my life in fear of you, Lord
Because you are mighty, glorious, powerful, righteous, everlasting, holy, radiant, awesome, fantastic
You are to be held in the highest esteem.
Help me Lord to truly fear you and to live like I do fear you!
