PLEASE READ THIS FIRST: Psalm 33
What do you sense the Lord saying to you in this passage?
“He gathers the waters of the sea into jars; he puts the deep into storehouses.” (Psalm 33:7)
It is too bad we’ve emptied the word ‘awesome’ of its meaning.
It was the perfect word to express how extremely impressive and daunting God is.
David attempts to express how GREAT (this word seem so feeble) God is.
Whatever is great to us (like the sea) is miniscule to God… He stores the sea in jars!
This may seem ridiculous idea, but how else do you describe the indescribable?
Unfortunately many believers have lost their sense of the true awesomeness of God.
Whatever may impress us in this world is nothing in comparison to God!!!
Expanding our thoughts about God (ie ‘magnifying God’) is helpful for the soul.
Not just as a reminder of how small we are, but of how great the God that is for us is!
“They were terrified, ‘Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!’” (Mark 4:41)
Jesus emptied Himself of His God-greatness to become like us (Philippians 2:6-8).
But God backed Him with Spirit-power, doing great and awesome things through Him.
God can also do great things through us when we humble ourselves before His greatness.
As long as we’re more impressed with our greatness, we miss out on God’s true greatness!
Lord, You have shown us the greatness of God in human flesh. This is what we were made for, but pride keeps us from enjoying it. Teach me the true meaning of AWESOME!
