The Psalms are beautiful. They are songs and prayers. They are uplifting and yet very blatant in their unveiling of frailties and sin. They are poetic and the words are so expressive that as we read them we may find ourselves wiping tears from our eyes. Today is like that in its beauty. Join me as we read an amazing glimpse of the majesty of our Lord.
“Praise the Lord, my soul. Lord my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty. The Lord wraps himself in light as with a garment; he stretches out the heavens like a tent and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters. He makes the clouds his chariot and rides on the wings of the wind. He makes winds his messengers, flames of fire his servants.” Psalm 104:1-4
These words are so big, so expressive and yet hard for us to even grasp in their description.
He wraps Himself in light as with a garment.
He stretches out the heavens like a tent, but the foundation is laid on the water in the air.
His chariot of clouds transports Him on the wings of the wind.
He makes wind His messengers and flames of fire His servants.
All of this is not an exaggeration. It’s not merely painting a word picture. If anything, our limited language cannot possibly capture the splendor of our Heavenly Father. His glory is beyond our comprehension.
I want to see this and you know what? I will get to someday. The awesomeness of God will be revealed when we have the joy of being with Him in His heavenly realm.
Lord, thank You today for Your beautiful Word. It gives me a tiny glimpse of how majestic Your Kingdom is. Because I can know You as my Lord and Savior, someday I will get to see it.
