Scripture: In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, let there be light; and there was light. And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven….And God saw everything that he made, and, behold, it was very good (Genesis 1:1,3, 20,31).
My dear friends, as we journey throughout life, God’s awesomeness cannot go unnoticed. He allows us to experience his awesomeness in many ways. Yet there are times we neglect to give him honor and praise for all of the miracles we often witness day by day.
Have you heard the birds chirping in the morning? Have you seen the beautiful flowers that bud and the trees adorned with the color green? Have you witnessed the early sunrise and the evening sunset? All of the aforementioned is God’s awesomeness. Not only does he reveal His awesomeness through His creations, but also to us. Even though we may have experienced aches or pains in our bodies, we are still alive. Remarkably, God has breathed His breath of life in us and touched us with his finger of love to awaken us this morning. God is awesome!
The above noted scriptures highlight God’s awesomeness through the creation of the universe. He strategically designed the universe for you and me. He put the stars in the sky. It has been said, “The number of stars in the creation is equal to all the grains of all the sand on all the beaches of the world.” Wow! That is awesome. The essence of God’s awesomeness extends beyond what you and I can ever imagine. Our finite understanding of God would never compare to how great and enormous He is in our presence and Hearts.
My friends let us celebrate and thank God for his awesomeness. Not only for the creation of the earth, but also for the many things He has done for us. Mostly, what He has done for us through His Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. We must honor Him and give Him the highest praise for His awesomeness. Therefore, the next time you wake up and the sun is peeping through the window, and you see a bird in the sky or any other creature in the earth, thank God for His awesomeness.
