Psalm 76:10 Even your wrath against Adam will praise you; you will clothe yourself with the wrath that remains.

to be feared

Our God is a God to be loved because he is loving. But he is also to be feared because he is powerful and just. He humbles leaders and they know it, so they fear him. It is possible to love God and fear him as well. Knowing what we know about him, it is our only option.

LORD, we love you, and fear you.
