In a society where the government and the education system are “Hell-Bent” on eradicating God every public place, meeting or discussion; it is easy to lose our reverence for God. We can continue to love him, admire him, and need him–but, as it relates to respect and honor, we sometimes fall into the trap, the world sets for us.
The psalmist reminds us all of the amazing God we SERVE. Yes, serve. We are not little divas that ring a bell or click our fingers; only to have God meet our daily whims and whimsy. Instead, we are wretched sinners, saved by grace and given the ability to worship God and follow him. He loves us and offers us a full and meaningful life on earth and an eternal life with him in heaven.
The reality is, however, that while he loves us totally and unconditionally–he still is the master of the universe. As such, we not only get to know and love him–but, we must give him the reverence he has earned. Humble yourself before almighty God, and see if he will not do amazing things in your life,as you follow him on this amazing journey.
God Bless You
I will extol the Lord with all my heart
in the council of the upright and in the assembly.
2 Great are the works of the Lord;
they are pondered by all who delight in them.
3 Glorious and majestic are his deeds,
and his righteousness endures forever.
4 He has caused his wonders to be remembered;
the Lord is gracious and compassionate.
5 He provides food for those who fear him;
he remembers his covenant forever.
6 He has shown his people the power of his works,
giving them the lands of other nations.
7 The works of his hands are faithful and just;
all his precepts are trustworthy.
8 They are established for ever and ever,
enacted in faithfulness and uprightness.
9 He provided redemption for his people;
he ordained his covenant forever—
holy and awesome is his name.
10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
all who follow his precepts have good understanding.
To him belongs eternal praise.
