“Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.”
— Psalm 96:3
In your opinion, who is the most awe-inspiring person ever to have lived? What makes that person so incredible? Now think of God. Isn’t it amazing that no matter how awe-inspiring some people are, none can compare to the majesty of our great God?
Today let’s dwell on God’s awesomeness. First of all, God is a Spirit. While He is a personal Spirit who touches each individual life, He is also an infinite Spirit, inhabiting every place, filling Heaven and earth and reaching beyond the farthest star. Psalm 139:7–8 says, “Where can I go from Your Spirit? . . . If I ascend into Heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.” His Spirit is everywhere.
God is also eternal. He has existed forever. He is the great I Am, not the great I Was. Psalm 90:2 says, “Before the mountains were brought forth…You had formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.” He was here before time began and shall remain after time ends.
As well, God never changes. Malachi 3:6 says, “For I am the Lord, I do not change.” He doesn’t continually evolve or learn; He is complete and perfect already. Nor do His counsels change. Psalm 33:11 says, “The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the plans of His heart to all generations.”
God is infinite, eternal, and unchangeable not only in His being, but also in His power. Jeremiah 32:17 says, “There is nothing too hard for You.” To grasp even the smallest inkling of God’s immenseness, think of our entire universe as a tiny grain of sugar on God’s finger. While this picture doesn’t accurately depict God because it implies that He is finite, it does give us an idea of His magnitude.
When we catch even a glimpse of God’s Majesty, we can do nothing but respond in continual praise. Today, take some time to dwell on the awesomeness of our God, and offer Him praise for His majesty.
