Deuteronomy 2:25 This day will I begin to put the dread of thee and the fear of thee upon the nations that are under the whole heaven, who shall hear report of thee, and shall tremble, and be in anguish because of thee.
God caused people to fear the nation of Israel. God would send a spirit of fear over them. This would protect them and give them the ability to do great things.
God does that with and through His other people, like us. He is using you. He will send His power over you. He will bless you and use you. It isn’t you but Him who does that. He will cause people to respect you. He will bless and use you even when you are not honored by others.
