Daily devotional: Proper fear of the Lord

Scripture
To the Israelites the glory of the LORD looked like a consuming fire on top of the mountain.
Exodus 24:17 NIV

Observation
I think sometimes we can take God lightly, not giving Him the respect that is rightfully due Him. Yes, when we come to God through Jesus Christ, He becomes our Daddy, which is an awesome thing. But He still deserves our fear and respect. And those who haven't given their lives over to Him had better seriously consider their decision while there is yet time for them to do so, for it is a terrible thing to fall at the hand of the Holy God.

Application
Give God the fear and respect He is due. Don't take Him or His commands lightly.

Prayer
Holy God, Creator of everything and Lord over all, I praise You and give You respect. I worship You with all that I am and give myself fully to You, holding nothing back. I trust in You. Thank you for Your amazing grace, this huge undeserved favor You have shown me in Your perfect love by adopting me as Your child. I cannot believe this privilege and position You have given me. Help me to always give You the respect and honor You are due. Help me to never take You for granted. I love you!
