God

 

 

1 Chronicles 29:11 Yours, LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.

When I read this scripture verse a few days ago I have not been able to get it out of my head so I need to blog about it today.

This scripture explains who God is:

  1. Great
  2. Full of power
  3. Glorious
  4. Majestic
  5. Full of splendor
  6. Owner of the kingdom
  7. Head of all

This description is powerful and can’t describe anyone else but God! My mind can’t even wrap around anyone more powerful. Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. Psalms 145:3.God 2

God makes it very clear of His position in the entire universe in this verse: Exodus 3:14 God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: “I AM has sent me to you.” Who else can say that?

No one can be higher than God: Isaiah 6:1 In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted…. God is high and exalted!!! God is superior to anything or anyone that ever existed!

It’s very hard to understand the greatness of God. We’re human and it’s not in our brain to understand the unique being that God is no matter how much we study about Him and how much we pray. If we understood Him we would be scared to death of Him because of His extreme superiority and holiness.

So we worship and praise God and talk to Him as much as we can. Since it’s so much to try to grasp His greatness….I personally hang out in His love and I have set my mind to have an ongoing daily and close relationship with Him. Because of His love for me I can reach Him and be real close to Him. He has made this so easy because of the Holy Spirit living inside of me. It’s a process that has to be daily cultivated by me because in my human state there are so many distractions that pull at me constantly that try to draw me away from my relationship with God. I try all day and night to keep my mind on God.

 

I think a lot about the day when I will be one with God in the most incredible, perfect and permanent way. My granddaughter says that I’m obsessed with God and I tell you…that I AM!!!! Why…Because:

  1. I see God’s greatness.
  2. I feel His love for me.
  3. I know my futureGod 3

Because I’m assured of these 3 things I can take the stress of my human life. I don’t question this great God about why He’s allowed me to suffer so in this life. Knowing how great He is lets me know that He knows what He’s doing. He promised me an unbelievably great eternal life if I would just trust Him. And I do. I trust God, I trust God….I…trust…God!!!!!

1 Chronicles 29:11 Yours, LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.
