“How magnificent are Your works, Lord, how profound Your thoughts!” (Psalm 92:5 HCSB)
The word magnificent brings to mind many things. Beautiful art, gargantuan mountain ranges, heart-stirring music, shimmering galaxies. I know of only one Person, however, who can truly be described as magnificent: The Lord God—Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer, and soon coming King.
His ways are perfect. His works are marvelous. His knowledge is limitless. His power is unmatched. His will is supreme. His love is steadfast and loyal. He never fails. His beauty is incomparable. His promises are sure.
Make it your daily goal to praise, worship, and honor the magnificent Lord of all.
“You have multiplied, O Lord my God, your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us; none can compare with you! I will proclaim and tell of them, yet they are more than can be told.” (Psalm 40:5 ESV)
“Truly I know that it is so: But how can a man be in the right before God? If one wished to contend with him, one could not answer him once in a thousand times. He is wise in heart and mighty in strength —who has hardened himself against him, and succeeded?— he who removes mountains, and they know it not, when he overturns them in his anger, who shakes the earth out of its place, and its pillars tremble; who commands the sun, and it does not rise; who seals up the stars; who alone stretched out the heavens and trampled the waves of the sea; who made the Bear and Orion, the Pleiades and the chambers of the south; who does great things beyond searching out, and marvelous things beyond number.” (Job 9:2-10 ESV)
“You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!” (Psalm 139:13-18 NLT)
