In Psalm 89:6-7 King David wrote about our view of the Lord. Our veiw of God, our understanding of God, can make our walk strong or weak. If we view the Lord being limitless in forgiveness, understanding, blessings, solace, and keeping promises then our walk, our faith, is stronger. If we view the Lord seeing us as not worthy, he’d never bother with our needs, he’s then viewed as the ultimate judge, jury, and executioner…. One of two things happen from our misconceptions.

A.) You just don’t care anymore. You see yourself as damned and ruined anyways, you might as well do what you want. Ultimately you are running from the Lord:
-you have to realize there is no running, he’s every where and he is the God of love. Not the God of punishment. He doesn’t expect you to jump. He wants to move through and with you like waves of water. If it weren’t so our two highest Commandments wouldn’t be to love your God, and love your neighbor. (Matthew 22: 36-40.) He also stated instead of revenge bless your enemies. (Matthew 5:44.) He practiced what he preached on that cross as he asked the Lord to forgive those who stabbed him, drove nails through his skin, beat him, cursed him, and spit on him (Luke23:34). That doesn’t sound like a mean God what so ever.

B.) You’ll live a life pleasing others, walking on eggshells, and trying to earn God’s love.:
-You were never meant to live an unhappy life! In all you do, or decide not to do, the Lord blesses you. The Lord loves you (Ecclesiastics 3:12-13) (1 Peter 4:12). (Psalm 139:13-16) The Lord sees you as valuable, worthy. He sees and loves your heart.

Psalm 89:6-7King James Version (KJV)

6 For who in the heaven can be compared unto the Lord? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the Lord? 7 God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him.
