God’s Greatness

Sometimes I just tremble at the majesty of God’s Greatness.  It grips me and holds me spellbound in reverence and awe.  I feel smaller than a grasshopper in His Presence – mostly at night when the sky is clear, filled with stars I cannot count for number; or watching the sun set over the ocean.  His handiwork is magnificent to behold.  To think that He knows my name, the number of hairs on my head – that He cares when I stumble; makes my heart pound.

When fear and stress wage war within me, I cry out to Him to settle my spirit, because He promised:

“For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.” ~Isaiah 41:13 (KJV)



Where Were You? – Part II

God’s question of “Where were you when?…” in the Book of Job, chapters 40-41, is basically pointing out that He is Almighty, All Powerful, and deserves our reverence.

Does He owe us more than he has already done?  Quite the reverse is true.  Chapter 41:11 indicates that He owns everything, and owes nothing to anyone.    He created everything.  His perfect Son, Jesus, paid our penalty on the cross (free of charge); and all He asks of us is to trust and follow Him.  He only wants a relationship with us.

How terrible is that?

“Who has a claim against me that I must pay? Everything under heaven belongs to me.” ~Job 41:11 NIV
