“Oh that they had such a heart as this always, to fear me and to keep all my commandments, that it might go well with them and with their descendants forever!” (Deuteronomy 5:29 ESV).
God knows the open rebellion that His people (and all people) will continue to walk in and the cost to buy back this rebellious lot. The awe of the Almighty should leave an imprint on our souls that we fear and revere Him. There should be a growing awareness of the chasm between the eternally, holy, transcendent Creator and us which produces awe, admiration, reverence and obedience that flows out of a place of gratitude that He would make a way for us, not that He will “get us” if we don’t obey. Please reveal your glory so that we may fear and follow.
