I always hear preachers talking about the fear mentioned here having more to do with reverence than being scared.
I think they may be onto something, although part of me feels… I don’t know…
In that case, having reverence for God in itself will guide us. It means we’re not driven by what we want and that we esteem more highly God’s will and His “demands on us”.
I’m not there yet. I wish I was. I wish I had so much reverence for God that my fears and ego were so irrelevant that I followed God wholly in everything.
I guess, in this regard, my reverence is lacking. While I follow Jesus, I’m still learning to really follow Him. Through His grace I know it is OK to struggle with Him. With understanding and following Him.
The only thing, though, is that I struggle running in His direction and not away from Him [Click to Tweet]
