The Awesomeness of God

Awesome (adj.) – Inspiring awe; causing awe or terror; inspiring wonder or excitement;

I am not awesome; you are not awesome. That was not an awesome concert; that is not an awesome car!

According to Paul Washer, awesome means abject terror.

The fear of the Lord: It doesn’t mean reverence, it means trembling and fear! His name is Awesome! It strikes fear into the heart of man. Do you tremble at His word, or do you look for loopholes around it?

Here is what I recommend you look for when trying to determine a life verse: 1) Your verse should be a verse from the Bible that has meaning to you – maybe it has inspired you in the past, and the like; and 2) You should try to fit yourself to be what your life verse says, not try to fit your verse into your life.

My life verse is Romans 12:2 – actually I have expanded it to include the verse before it. I am going to use the Holman Christian Standard Version, though I am not set on just one version of the Bible, as I believe many (not all) can offer something in the way that God speaks.
