Psalm 111:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever! ESV

  Reading through Psalms 111 I see a great example of what fearing the Lord looks like. This psalmist is giving respect to the Lord giving Him praise and proclaiming how great our God is. That paints the fine line between actual fear and respectful (quote unquote) fear. James 2:19 also gives a good example of the line between fear and respect: You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe- and tremble! Which leads me to the second half of psalm 111:10  A good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.<NKJV> Fearing the Lord doesn't mean shaking in our boots. In our fear or respect of Him and the work on the cross we have no reason to be afraid like the demons do who tremble for Gods love has been poured out on us.
