Psalm 133:5 5 For I know that the LORD is great, And our Lord is above all gods.
I love the prayer we teach our children, “God is great…God is good…let us thank Him for our food.” I especially like the first six words, “God is great, God is good.”
The Psalmist said, “For I know that LORD is great, and our Lord is above all gods.”
I believe there are FIVE great reasons God is great…
GOD IS GREAT BECAUSE OF HIS GOODNESS.
Every breathe I take I realize just how GOOD is our God. He is so good that He gives us breathe and life. He is so good that He grants us His blessing day by day. He is so good that the He provides for us through every good time and bad time.
GOD IS GREAT BECAUSE HE IS REDEMPTIVE.
This old world is so fallen that God could speak a word and start over. He could wipe away the old right now with a brush of His mighty hand. But He doesn’t yet because He sent His one and only Son, Jesus Our Lord to buy redemption for any who would repent of their sins and believe in HIM. Thank God for His redemption.
GOD IS GREAT BECAUSE HE IS ETERNAL.
Before anything there was GOD. He has always been and forever will be. He is our unending hope because of HIS eternity.
GOD IS GREAT BECAUSE HE IS AWARE.
I was walking the other day and totally missed a church member drive by me. I apologized to him. You can’t walk by God have Him ignore you…HE is aware of every step we take. WOW!!!
GOD IS GREAT BECAUSE HE IS TIMELY.
Galatians 4:4, “In the fullness of time God sent forth His Son…” God knew just the right time for Jesus incarnation, (God in flesh). God knew when to show a fallen world just how much HE loves them. His timing is always perfect.
Will you praise the LORD with me because we know, “That the LORD is great!!!”
Father, I praise You for You are God and worthy of all of my praise…may my life show forth my praise as I live this day for You…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
