The Majesty of God

Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
    his greatness no one can fathom.
One generation will commend your works to another;
    they will tell of your mighty acts.
They will speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty,
    and I will meditate on your wonderful works

Psalm 145:3-5

The great majesty of God is all around us.  We can see it in the sky as the clouds roll over our heads, we can see it in the mountains that tower above us, or in the trees of a forest.  We can see it in the great rivers that course over entire continents, or in the raging waters of a waterfall.

We can see His awesome love in the smiling eyes of a little child as he gazes in wonder at the world around him, or in the loving kindness of a grandmother doting over her grandchildren.  We can see God’s greatness in the strong hands of a working man who is volunteering his time to help others, or in the gaze of a congregation at worship.

God’s great majesty is all around us if we will only notice, it is hard to miss even for the busy. Let us therefore proclaim God’s greatness near and far, let us proclaim His majesty from the hilltop, let us proclaim His awesomeness to our families and friends, and in the process, let’s leave a legacy for our children; a legacy of praise for the One who has made all things.
