I fear God because He loves me… I fear that if I don’t obey the steps He has ordered for me (out of His love) there is no other way. That I’ll be lost without Him or screw things up.
You fear (and respect God) by obedience.
And every decision (small or big) I have to make I ask Him what is the best possible way according to Him, otherwise I will fail. It is not that I succeed always but I discover everyday I need Him more. As I grow in my relationship with God my fear and love for Him grows and it is a way He reveals Himself to me. It is not fear of getting punished it is fear that I won’t get to discover more of Him and His blessings.
And I am glad I am in fear of Him!
