Address God with Reverence and Awe

Having thus engaged my heart to approach God. Jeremiah 30:21(ESV)

1

I must solemnly address myself to that infinitely great and glorious Being with whom I have to do, as one who is possessed with a full belief of his presence and a holy awe and reverence of his Majesty, which may be done in such expressions as these:

Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come! Revelation 4:8(ESV)

O you whose name is the LORD, who alone are the Most High over all the earth! Psalm 83:18(ESV)

O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; Psalm 63:1(ESV) my God, and I will praise you; my father’s God, and I will exalt you. Exodus 15:2(ESV)

O you who are the true God, the living God, the one only living and true God, 1 Thessalonians 1:9(ESV) and the everlasting King! Jeremiah 10:10(ESV) With your redeemed people I confess your great name: “The LORD our God, the LORD is one.” Deuteronomy 6:4(ESV)

And may I thus distinguish myself from the worshipers of false gods.

The idols of the nations are silver and gold, they are vanity and a lie, the work of human hands; Psalm 115:4(ESV) those who make them become like them, so do all who trust in them. Psalm 115:8(ESV) But the Portion of Jacob is not like these, for he is the one who formed all things, and Israel is the tribe of his inheritance; the LORD of hosts is his name, Jeremiah 10:16(ESV) God over all, blessed forever. Romans 9:5(ESV)

Their rock is not as my Rock; my enemies are by themselves, Deuteronomy 32:31(ESV) for he is the Rock of ages; the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock: Isaiah 26:4(ESV) His name endures forever, and his renown throughout all ages, Psalm 135:13(ESV) when the gods who did not make the heavens and the earth shall perish from the earth and from under the heavens. Jeremiah 10:11(ESV)
