Awe of God Toolbox II
The second issue is that many people fear that Yira’at Hashem will limit them. Have you ever heard of those stories when a mother sees her son, God forbid, hit by a truck, and she goes and lifts the truck up off her child? So does fear limit, or does it give a person a rush of adrenaline? Real Yira’at Hashem will make life more thrilling. If you don’t feel that rush, then more work is necessary on Yira’at Hashem. It’s an unbelievable idea. You’re supposed to feel excited during davening. This is what it is all about. With real Yira’at Hashem, you feel as if you can do anything.
