Purity of Mind: Day 8 - In Awe

Hebrews 12:28-29
Since we are receiving a kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe.  For our God is a devouring fire.

It turns out that somewhere along the line I missed day 8, but don't panic because it is here now!  The word Awesome and being in awe of something is a concept I struggle with, and it think its because in todays context something good and wonderful is awesome.  But back in the day when they were using it to describe God it was quite different.  It was all about holy fear, something so incredible that it scares the pants of you.  This is an image of God that I find difficult to comphrend.  I mean I know how massive and incredible God is, but I also know that he is a God of love, justice and grace, so how could he be terrifying?  Just something I am struggling to get my head around...any help would be much appreciated.
