Are you in awe of God?
When you think about God are you in awe of who He truly is? I do not mean do you believe in God. No, I mean are you in total amazement of who Almighty God is in all His power and glory? I am not sure in our present day and age how many people have a true understanding and respect for the Creator of the universe and Lord of all the living.
We may be captivated by different human beings who have greatly impacted our world, be it either good or bad, throughout history. Money, power, prestige, popularity, and intellect seem to be the deciding factors when we acknowledge the greatness of men/women in our world. Honors of all kinds are bestowed on people for their various accomplishments. In many of these cases, we see an outright idolization of such individuals taking place.
And yet for many people in our world and within our American society they have no reason or desire to give honor and glory to the very One who set all of life in place. The Creator alone set the universe in motion in a way that allows all things to exist and function. Evolution is the world’s greatest lie, and it is a fool’s story which man has been feasting on for decades upon decades. In fact, it is the sole theory of choice taught in our public schools here in America. This is wrong and should not be happening. This is a direct challenge against the Supreme Maker.
In the Old Testament Book of Job, we see where Job challenged God on who He was and how He operates in His relationship with this world and mankind. Listen to God’s response to Job questioning Him and His authority.
“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding. Who determined its measurements--surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? On what were its bases sunk, or who laid its cornerstone, when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy? Or who shut in the sea with doors when it burst out from the womb, when I made clouds its garment and thick darkness its swaddling band, and prescribed limits for it and set bars and doors, and said, 'Thus far shall you come, and no farther, and here shall your proud waves be stayed? Have you commanded the morning since your days began, and caused the dawn to know its place, that it might take hold of the skirts of the earth, and the wicked be shaken out of it? It is changed like clay under the seal, and its features stand out like a garment. From the wicked their light is withheld, and their uplifted arm is broken. Have you entered into the springs of the sea, or walked in the recesses of the deep? Have the gates of death been revealed to you, or have you seen the gates of deep darkness? Have you comprehended the expanse of the earth? Declare, if you know all this.”
Our God is an awesome God, who reigns from heaven above with wisdom, power, and love, so let us never forget just how amazing He truly is! Pastor McCarty
