“How great is our God!”
Chris Tomlin

Rae’s Thought: One of my favorite songs is Chris Tomlin’s, ‘How Great is Our God.’ The whole song – from the words to the music, beginning to end – captures how magnificent God is. He wraps himself in light, and darkness tries to hide, and trembles at his voice…Age to age he stands, and time is in his hands, beginning and the end… Every time I hear this song, I end up with tears in my eyes, worshipping and praising God.

He is awesome isn’t he? He’s created a masterpiece (this universe) with his tender hands and voice. Now, humans can create some pretty cool things, but NOTHING compares to making an entire universe. I’d like to see someone try to get even close to it (you can’t, btw). And how about the fact that His name is so powerful, just saying it makes things happen? Not even the most recognized names on the planet can have that power. I mean, demons and Satan himself trembles at the name. When Satan is bothering you, try saying your name. He’ll probably laugh all throughout hell at the thought of the human who thinks he’s (or she’s) somebody. Oh, but say the name of Jesus and Satan will run and cower in a corner like a scared puppy.

Why is God awesome to you? What has He done for you? Think of all the blessings, big and small, that God has bestowed upon you. Having a hard time? How about the fact that you’re alive? You may think that alarm clock or person woke you up, but it was God. What about the fact that the planets, stars, sun, and moons are suspended in air with nothing (visible) holding them up? That’s not magic, y’all…it’s God. The fact that you’re reading this? Yep, God. Plants, animals, trees, nature = God. Your job, clothes, car, etc…all God. And even if you’re without a job, God is still keeping you in His capable hands. Let’s not forget the fact the sacrifice on Calvary. He did not have to do it, but He loved us so much…

Don’t let this week go by without you thinking about God and His awesomeness…and when you’re done, thank and praise Him. He’s worth that and more.
