We use the word awesome to describe lots of things. If something good happens we might say it was awesome. If we succeed at something, we might describe the process as awesome. But in reality, do those things actually inspire awe? When we get right down to it there is only One who deserves for us to stand in awe and that is God. The term awesome truly should be used to describe our Lord and His Word. He holds our very lives in His hand. Each breath comes from Him alone. We can do nothing unless he allows it. His amazing Word leads and directs us. Our Lord and Savior really is awesome. The psalmist agreed. “Sustain me, my God, according to your promise, and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed. Uphold me, and I will be delivered; I will always have regard for your decrees. You reject all who stray from your decrees, for their delusions come to nothing. All the wicked of the earth you discard like dross; therefore I love your statutes. My flesh trembles in fear of you; I stand in awe of your laws.” Psalm 119:116-120
You are awesome Mighty God. I stand in awe of You and Your amazing Word.
