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!)
The Fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;
Fools despise wisdom and instruction.
… 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.”
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…
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…
