Is Your Idea Of God Too Small?

June 16

"His lightnings light the world; the earth sees and trembles.
The mountains melt like wax at the presence of the Lord,
at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
The heavens declare his righteousness,
and all the peoples see his glory."
Psalm 97:4-6

Sometimes we have an inadequate picture of the Lord in our minds. To many he's just there. Period. No more. They know he is just there.

Oh that mankind would be given to know the majesty of God, the God before whom the mountains melt like wax. He breathes out galaxies and keeps all together in its right place. The Lord is far greater than our minds imagine.

"...what may be known of God is manifest in them,
for God has shown it to them.
For since the creation of the world
his invisible attributes are clearly seen,
being understood by the things that are made,
even his eternal power and Godhead,
so that they are without excuse..."
Romans 1:19-20

When you look at the stars at night, think of the vastness of them, for each one is a sun like our sun. God is the creator all and the creation declares his glory. From the transformation of a caterpillar into a butterfly, to the hugeness of the universe, it is all his handiwork.

You started out as a single cell too small for the human eye to see; imagine the miracle of bringing that cell to become a human being with sight and hearing and taste, and awareness, one who can speak and think and sing. Oh bring to him your praise and thanksgiving, stand in awe before him, for great is the Lord and greatly to be praised.

Here is a presentation that demonstrates God's greatness and his glory. Watch it and then watch it again, and marvel at the greatness and wonder of God.
