Psalm 113

Praise the Lord. Praise, O servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord. Let the name of the Lord be praised, both now and forevermore. From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised. The Lord is exalted over all the nations, his glory above the heavens. Who is like the Lord our God, the One who sits enthroned on high, who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth? He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; he seats them with princes, with the princes of their people. He settles the barren woman in her home as a happy mother of children. Praise the Lord.
I think sometimes we forget just how majestic He is.  That He literally formed this entire earth in a mere six days and that this earth is His foot stool.  That He can merely “think” something and it will be.  He can bring blind men sight, raise the body that is beginning to decompose, know the thoughts of man before his lips even utter them and redeem situations that appear “hopeless” to a very distorted and often hopeless world. But then God. Let’s take a moment to attempt to wrap our finite minds around an amazing, infinite being.  And then when you can’t do it, fall to your knees and praise Him, thank Him and humble yourself before Him. Because He just flat out adores you.

  1. Thank you for this. You are reminding me that I don’t have to pretend for Him. I can just be, because He loves and accepts me for me.

  2. I love that! I am singing in my mind one of my favorite songs by Mercy Me

    “I can only imagine what it will be like, when I walk by Your side…
    I can only imagine, what my eyes will see, when Your Face is before me!
    I can only imagine. I can only imagine.
    Surrounded by Your Glory, what will my heart feel?
    Will I dance for you, Jesus? Or in awe of You, be still?
    Will I stand in Your presence, or to my knees will I fall?
    Will I sing ‘Hallelujah!’? Will I be able to speak at all?
    I can only imagine! I can only imagine!
    I can only imagine, when that day comes, when I find myself standing in the Son!
    I can only imagine, when all I will do, is forever, forever worship You!
    I can only imagine! I can only imagine!”

  3. Thank you for these words, Cindy. I think in some ways we’ve become numb to discovery. I think living in the information age is one of the most dangerous generations in our Faith’s history… We know too much. We think we know everything. Knowledge is power. And we forget that there is Something out there that is more Powerful and Knowledgeable than us…
