Last night I was reading Noah’s story, and of course, it felt much more realistic with the storms raging outside at the same time. The thunder shook the house, the lights flickered and at that moment I was awed by the awesome power and magnificence of our God. God can take many roles in our lives—friend, savior, father, but in all, He is Lord: King. Many writers in the Bible talk about fearing the Lord, and in looking at Noah’s story and countless other examples in the Bible, it is clear to see that we do need to have a healthy fear and respect our God. As the storms continue to rage on today, take five minutes to reflect on our God as leader, Lord, who is mighty and all-powerful. Do you fear and respect Him?
