Fearing the Relative Power of God

from Thomas Watson’s (1620-1686) THE BODY OF DIVINITY

Since God is infinite in His power, fear Him!!

We fear those who are in power over us. ‘Don’t you fear me? asks the Lord: won’t you tremble in my presence?’ Jer 5:52. He alone has power to cast our souls and bodies into hell. ‘Who has known the intense power of his wrath?’ Psa 90:01.

The same breath that made us can dissolve us. ‘His fury is poured out like fire’ Nahum 1:1. Solomon says, ‘Where the word of a king is, there is power, much more where the word of God is. Eccles 8:8. Oh let us fear this mighty God! The fear of God will drive all lesser fears right out of you. [[Let God terrify the hell out of you !]].
