Will you Stand?
Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the people of the world revere him. Psalm 33:8
This verse calls us to pause and take a deep breath and to consider who we will fear. We can often tell who we fear by whose opinions matter most in our life. When we stand and consider the thoughts of others we may be fearing their ideas over God. This is ever so slight of influence until it grows into an overpowering control. We can become so concerned with what others are thinking that we stop considering God.
When people’s thoughts become greater, then we are left as puppets to be mastered. However, when we start with God’s opinion, we begin to understand ourselves in His sight. It becomes a welcoming place to stand because we have been accepted not by our duty, but because of Jesus. Our Savior’s hands have been stained so we can stand in God’s presence.
This calls us to be humbled in God’s sight and stand in awe of who He is. We live bowed before His majesty as people who are adored because of Jesus. We allow ourselves to stay before Him, filled with the certainty of His unfailing love. Which calls us to sing:
And I stand, I stand in awe of You
I stand, I stand in awe of You
Holy God, to whom all praise is due
I stand in awe of You
