Consolation, Fear (Awe), and Trembling (with Joy)!

This will be perhaps my shortest post ever – there’s really not much to say about it.
(Well, that and I have only a few minutes to write it!)

Proverbs 1:7
The Fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;
Fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Psalm 65:8
… stand in awe … rejoice with trembling…

God is all-powerful. He is the One who made everything – it doesn’t matter how. In fact, science does us a favor by explaining the how. What science doesn’t change, however, is that something or, as I believe, someone still created it all.

And we benefit from keeping that power in mind, and walking – working through our lives respectfully.

MercyMe has a great song, The Hurt and The Healer, which includes the line:
But healing doesn’t come from the explained.”

Acts 9:31
So the church (I say, both individually and as a whole)… had peace and was being built up and walking in the respect and reverential fear of the Lord and in the consolation and exhortation of the Holy Spirit

Isaiah 66:2
All these things my hand has made,
and so all these things came to be, declares the Lord.
But this is the one to whom I will look:
He who is humble and contrite in spirit and trembles at my word.

He loves us, O how he loves us BUT our God is an awesome God…
