Have you ever wondered what our words would sound like and what actions we would perform if we could even scratch the surface of describing the greatness and worth of God? David exhorts us with this thought in Psalm 29,
“Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness.”
The rest of this Psalm recounts the visible expressions of the greatness and power of God in nature from the presence of thunder and lightning to the birth of animals in the woods, they all are but an expression of the greatness of God.
While we can barely comprehend a small portion of the worth of God, this should not discourage us from spending our lifetime trying to better grasp, appreciate and communicate in praise and worship the excellence of God. The writer of the Gospel Song, The Love of God, Frederick Lehman expressed that very challenge this way when attempting to adequately reflect on the love of God,
“Could we with ink the ocean fill
And were the skies of parchment made
Were every stalk on earth a quill
And every man a scribe by trade
To write the love of god above
Would drain the ocean dry
Nor could the scroll contain the whole
Though stretched from sky to sky.”
So as you move through your days, spend time attempting to capture and reflect on the majesty and wonder of God. Even though the task is impossible to adequately perform, the very attempt will bring Him more honor and will lift your soul.
