- Have you ever heard someone pit joy and delight against reverence and awe when talking about worship; as though you emphasize one to the detriment the other? That's a false dichotomy.
Nehemiah 1:11 "O Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of your servant, and to the prayer of your servants who delight to fear your name, and give success to your servant today, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man." (emphasis added)
As Nehemiah seeks God's help in his mission he speaks of servants of God who delight to fear his name. You see it's not delight or fear; it's delighting to fear. It's both.
