#22 That fear has gripped my soul, for your reputation and glory It is a reverent fear.
This has been a growing attribute I’ve prayed for my heart for years. I have been praying that God would teach me to fear the Lord in the proverbial and Biblical sense. I’ve always read about it in Proverbs. And have answered it in Sunday School as an answer. But I wasn’t sure if I was actually experiencing it. As God has continued to reveal the more glorious patches of his divine and all powerful nature, that fear has begun to tug and hold and finally grip the motivations of my heart. I bless the Lord for his work- it humbles me to honor Him and to exalt his character over mine.
