God is oh so… amazing awesome creative majestic artistic awesome (did I say that already?) Awe-inspiring And a host of other adjectives.
To look at this scene; this artwork, and say this is just a random event is to live a life with blinders on. A sad life, really; going through life in black and white without the wonder and majesty of our Creator God. This is not random but purposefully crafted for our enjoyment but more importantly to the glory of God. People have complimented me on this photo, but really, how I can (or anyone for that matter) take credit for a beautiful photo like this. I mean, this scene was and is there. I just happened to be there to capture it on some digital media. This is God’s masterpiece, painted on His canvas and with His mighty hand.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg. God’s masterpieces are all around you. Stop and smell the roses (or look at the mountains) and give God the glory.
Holy and awesome God, Your mighty hand is powerful and gentle. It can shake and rend the heavens and the earth and it can cradle a new-born life. Your hand can also craft a scene that can take our breath away; drawing our attention to You. Oh God, what can be known about You is indeed evident in creation. May we never be so busy as to miss Your majesty all around. Thank you for taking my breath away with such beauty. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
Oh Lord my God, I called You and You heard me. I pleaded to You and You receive me. I inquired of You and You answered me. For You are my God and I will follow You. You are my King and I will serve You. You are my Father and I will obey You. Send now, oh God, Your Holy Spirit. Guide me Lead me Speak to me May I not turn from Your ways to chase after worthless desires. May I not run after vain pursuits. Show me how I am to serve You that others may see Your glory. For You are an awesome god who is above all other gods, For from You and in You is Life. And so, as I travel this path You laid out for me, May I keep my eyes on You. May I not turn back. May I not second guess you. Oh Lord my God, I am Yours. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
It is indeed right and salutary that we should at all times and in all places give thanks and praise to You, oh God, our Creator and Redeemer. Through Jesus Christ You showed us Your amazing grace and mercy. Through Jesus Christ You revealed Your abundant love. Through Jesus Christ You defeated sin, Satan and the power of death. Through Jesus Christ You revealed Your glory and showed us THE path to You and thus eternal life. May we listen to Jesus and thus proclaim this glory. And so, with the Church on earth and the hosts of heaven, we join in proclaiming this glory and singing Your unending praise…
Holy God, mighty and awesome, You are worthy of all our worship. You are worthy of all our praise. You are worthy of all honor. You are worthy of all glory.
Your voice is powerful; for with Your voice You created. Your voice is mighty; for with Your voice You sustain creation. Your voice is victorious; for with Your voice You subdue Your enemies. You voice is love, for with Your voice You give peace.
May all Your children worship You, in gladness, and joy, and cry with one voice, “GLORY!” You are King. You are Lord. You are sovereign. You reign forever and ever. In Jesus most awesome name I pray, Amen.
Your mercy is great,
Your grace is abundant,
Your might is awesome,
Your love is precious,
I begin this day waking in Your arms,
and basking in Your glory.
I want to leave this house clinging to You
and embracing Your commandments.
Grant me, I pray,
Your Spirit that I may shine.
As the face of Moses shined; reflecting Your glory,
may my life shine bright.
But may I not veil Your glory but boldly live for You.
Oh God, I want to shine for You.
In Jesus name I pray.
