PSALM 117 - With Fear and Trembling 27 Feb 2020
Not just Israel. Not just Christians. All nations and everyone is invited.
Praise what I do not know
How shall I praise what I do not know? The faithful love of Yahweh.
How shall the nations know? How shall all people know?
I need to tell them. I need to give testimony. I need to share what God has entrusted to me, with those in need for love.
Fear and Trembling
It is not the fear of God in which I respond. I respond in my human fear.
Father God, please take my own fear and replace it with the fear of you, who is love. Please, replace my trembling with your fire in my heart. I desire true life.
Praise Yahweh, all nations,
extol him, all peoples,
2 for his faithful love is strong
and his constancy never-ending.
