GOD OF WONDERS ... a reflection on God's perfection.
I thank God that He is perfect. Perfectly good. Perfectly just. If He wasn't can you imagine how scary our lives would be knowing that He was "lurking" around every corner of the universe with His jealousy intact because His people constantly put other "gods" before Him? God is truly a God of Wonders.
Lord of all creation, of water, earth and sky
The heavens are Your tabernacle
Glory to the Lord on high
Usually when I sing this song I'm not thinking about God's sovereignty. I'm not thinking about Him being good in that way. So good that He isn't carrying around all that power on a trip! Since we need to worship God in spirit and in truth (John 4:23-24) let's focus on the truth.
- God is jealous (Nahum 1:2)
- God is just and slow to anger (Nahum 1:3)
- God is powerful (Nahum 1:4)
God is so awesome that the heavens have to be His tabernacle! Glory to our Lord on high. He is Lord over the heaven and the earth, not to mention the rest of the galaxy. I don't even think I'm "lord" to my dogs! :) How is that for perspective?
God of wonders beyond our galaxy,
You are holy, holy.
The universe declares Your majesty
You are holy, holy.
Lord of heaven and earth, Lord of heaven and earth.
Psalm 19 talks about the heavens declaring the glory of God. It also mentions his perfect judgment in verse 9: "...the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. As I mentioned before, I am so thankful that He is so perfect and longsuffering to us. Thankfully, His ways are higher than my ways and His thoughts higher than my thoughts. God's power is safe with God.
Finally, our God is so mindful of what I am doing in spite of all of His other "Lordly" duties, that when I'm down and in the darkness, I know that I can still call on Him for help. Wonderful love.
Early in the morning, I will celebrate the light
When I stumble in the darkness, I will call your name by night.
Do you call His name by "night"? Do you celebrate His name by "day"? I try.
