The following psalm reminds us that we worship an awe-inspiring God:


The Lord reigns, He is clothed with majesty;
The Lord is clothed,
He has girded Himself with strength.

Surely the world is established, so that it cannot be moved.

Your throne is established from of old;
You are from everlasting.

The floods have lifted up, O Lord,
The floods have lifted up their voice;
The floods lift up their waves.

The Lord on high is mightier
Than the noise of many waters,
Than the mighty waves of the sea.

Your testimonies are very sure;
Holiness adorns Your house,
O Lord, forever.

In corporate worship today, remember the awesome splendor and authority of our God. He is the eternal sovereign God of creation.  No other being matches His infinite power and authority.  Yet, He genuinely loves us and desires fellowship with each one of us. 

In another psalm, we are invited to consider—explore—investigate—analyze the reality of God’s responsiveness to our needs: “Come and see the works of God; He is awesome in His doing toward the sons of men” (Ps. 66:5).
