When the ark of the covenant fell into the hands of the Philistines some powerful things happened in their presence. The question was asked "who is able to stand before this holy Lord God?" We should have a reverence and respect for God. We shouldn't be fearful in the sense of terror of Him. God's wants a healthy relationship with us. What is it that separates man from God that generates a wrong type of fear?
