On this Good Friday, I thought it would be fitting to reflect on God’s Greatness. . .
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD.
“And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.
For just as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so my ways are higher than your ways
and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9 (NLV)
I acknowledge that You are God and I am not.
He counts the stars
and calls them all by name.
How great is our Lord! His power is absolute!
His understanding is beyond comprehension! Psalm 147:5 (NLV)
You, God know even the stars and call them each by name! How much more do you know me, your child? I am amazed at your greatness and glory. When I glimpse your holiness and see your power, I am humbled. Why do I think I know better? Why do I question your plans for me?
“My heart pounds as I think of this.
It trembles within me.
Listen carefully to the thunder of God’s voice
as it rolls from his mouth.
It rolls across the heavens,
and his lightning flashes in every direction.
Then comes the roaring of the thunder—
the tremendous voice of his majesty.
He does not restrain it when he speaks.
God’s voice is glorious in the thunder.
We can’t even imagine the greatness of his power. Job 37:1-5
My breath catches within me when I think of your greatness as the Creator of the Universe and your amazing love for me! Thank You for sending your only Son to take my place, so that I could know You and be known by You!
. . . “ There is no God like you in all of heaven and earth. You keep your covenant and show unfailing love to all who walk before you in wholehearted devotion. 2 Chronicles 6:14
Lord, I want to walk in wholehearted devotion to You! Don’t let me stray from your Presence. Don’t let me turn my heart from You. Teach me to walk in Your ways all the days of my life . . .
You thrill me, LORD, with all you have done for me!
I sing for joy because of what you have done.
O LORD, what great works you do!
And how deep are your thoughts. Psalm 92:4-5
