“Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.” Matthew 6:9, RSV
By merely reviewing the first few lines of the Lord’s Prayer, we gain a renewed respect
. . . a healthy and wholesome sense of reverence for our Almighty God and Father.
Rather than causing us to run from Him and hide in fear, I find that such an awesome respect makes me want to come close to Him, to wait quietly for Him to work.
And so I urge you to slow your pace, to approach His “hallowed name” thoughtfully.
Give Him the respect He deserves. Wait on God.
In return, He will give you a clearer vision. Furthermore, He will soften your will and make you want to know and do His will.
