THE WORD FOR TODAY
Psalm 46-48 (Click to read Today’s Word)
Psalm 48:1 1 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised In the city of our God, In His holy mountain.
Muhammad Ali always boasted, “I am the greatest.” Hmmmmmm…Muhammad I have news for you…you are aren’t the greatest.
The Psalmist declares, “Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in His holy mountain.” Doesn’t need much explanation…’GREAT IS THE LORD”!
He is Great because He is GOOD. God is the ultimate good. Any “good” we see in life is dwarfed by the goodness of a Holy God.
He is Great because He is RIGHTEOUS. God had and will always do what is right by his people. We have heard in recent day promises by BP to do “right” by those affected by the oil spill. The only reason they are making that promise is they have not been doing “right” all along. God always does right by HIS people and doesn’t have to go on a national media campaign to prove himself.
He is Great because HE is ETERNAL. In the beginning…GOD! He is also the Alpha and the Omega…the beginning and the end.
He is Great because HE is AVAILABLE. God is never absent from HIS people. He is omnipresent…everywhere at all times.
He is Great because HE is TRUTH. Jesus said, “ I am the way…the TRUTH…and the life, no man comes to the Father but by me.” John 14:6
We serve a GREAT GOD!!! To HIM be all glory and praise.
Lord, You are great…there is no one like You…AMEN!!!
Let’s praise HIS Greatness…YouTube - Chris Tomlin - How Great Is Our God
