“My flesh trembleth for fear of thee; and I am afraid of thy judgments.”
King James Version (KJV)

I could write a book on this verse! Most Christians today have forgot what it means to revere God. We have lost our awe of Him. Ex. 33:20 God said " there shall no man see me and live." Many times in scripture we see men falling to the ground on their faces when they are in the presence of God. In James 2:19 we see the devils believe and tremble. A verse that comes to mind is John 18:5 6 when they came to arrest Jesus in the garden, and they all fell backward when Jesus said, I am he. David had the awe of God and he knew this reverent fear of God. He feared God and he feared His testimonies. Fearing God's testimonies would come when we see how strict they are and how far we are from that righteous standard. Many have strayed from striving in holiness and have put everything in the grace basket. However we have the Holy Spirit that Peter say in 2 Peter 1:3, According as His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue.
