An Awesome God
You shall not be terrified of them; for the LORD your God, the great and awesome God, is among you. — Deuteronomy 7:21
The LORD reigns;
Let the peoples tremble!
He dwells between the cherubim;
Let the earth be moved!
The LORD is great in Zion,
And He is high above all the peoples.
Let them praise Your great and awesome name--
He is holy. — Psalms 99:1-3
Our God is great and all-powerful. He is mighty and all-knowing. He is full of tremendous mercy and grace and incredible wrath. We can’t fully grasp His character nor His very being. He is One “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty” (Revelation 1:8). God is an awesome God.
By awesome deeds in righteousness You will answer us,
O God of our salvation,
You who are the confidence of all the ends of the earth,
And of the far-off seas; — Psalms 65:5
God is great and awesome - the “God of our salvation”. And it makes sense that an awesome God would perform awesome deeds. His actions are magnificent and righteous. He is our confidence; the only One who we can always truly rely on.
“You are worthy, O Lord,
To receive glory and honour and power;
For You created all things,
And by Your will they exist and were created.” — Revelation 4:11
Our Master is so deserving of our worship. He created us along with everything around us. He spoke and the worlds were made. His will is law. Our God is such an awesome God!
