Are Grace And Judgement Antithetical?

“You, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God,
Slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth. (Psalm 86:15)

My flesh trembles for fear of You;
I stand in awe of Your judgments. (Psalm 119:120)”

For the sake of time I won’t be sharing a long stream of consciousness today.  Instead, a simple open-ended question.

The above list of scriptures is a prayer guide that helps me pray through the biblical texts. These two scriptures were grouped together into one prayer of adoration to God, but they say two seemingly different things about God…two things that many of us struggle to hold in the balance. So I’ll ask you: how do we reconcile these two scriptures?
