Whatever is biggest, most dominating, most compelling in our lives is what we fear and are in awe of. It is what is central to us. When God is central, we walk in wholistic life, real life, a life of peace. It is how the contract works in daily experience.
In a world of many fears….. “what is going to happen to my country!!!????”…… “what is going on with my daughter??!!!”, “who would ever want me??!!”…. “what will this merger mean to my job??”…… we are offered life and peace as we allow God to be BIG in our lives. Maybe this is a great time to be reintroduced to the big God of the Book of Deuteronomy or Isaiah. Meditating on such a God will enhance fear and awe, and result in life and peace.
