β€œGreat is our Lord, and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure." - Psalm 147:5

We use a lot of big words when we talk about God: Omnipotent. Omnipresent. Omniscient. He is all-powerful, all-present, and all-knowing.

If a word means all encompassing, it’s probably been used to talk about God.

These words express the upper limit of our ability to understand power, wisdom, and time. When Scripture tells us about the power, wisdom, and eternal nature of God, how else could we describe him?

A.W. Tozer says, "Because God knows all things perfectly, he knows no thing better than any other thing, but all things equally well. He never discovers anything, he is never surprised, never amazed.”

What does an awesome, amazing, big God look like? Kevin Hartnett gives us these words: "Indeed, through His own gracious revelation of Himself, we can understand God in part, but we can never fully comprehend Him, or even a single one of His qualities. There will always be more of His wisdom to understand, more of His power, more of His holiness, more of His love. We will never fathom Him, and we will never tire of Him. Through all eternity, we will look upon Him and marvel at the endlessly creative, wonderfully gracious, uniquely righteous, timelessly beautiful, unsearchably glorious, infinitely loving Maker and Ruler of all.” - Kevin Hartnett

The more we recognize how powerful and mighty God is, the more incredible it is that he cares for us personally

One of my favorite praise songs about God's greatness and power come from "Our God," by Chris Tomlin.

"Water you turned into wine, opened the eyes of the blind
There's no one like you, none like You!
Into the darkness you shine out of the ashes we rise
There's no one like you none like You!
Our God is greater, our God is stronger,
God you are higher than any other.
Our God is Healer, Awesome in Power,
Our God! Our God!

Into the darkness you shine out of the ashes we rise
there's no one like you, none like You!
Our God is greater, our God is stronger,
God you are higher than any other.
Our God is Healer, Awesome in Power,
Our God! Our God!

And if our God is for us,
then who could ever stop us.
And if our God is with us,
then what could stand against.
And if our God is for us,
then who could ever stop us.
And if our God is with us,
then what could stand against.
What could stand against?

Prayer: 
Awesome God of heaven and earth, not only do I bend my knee to you today, I bow my heart. I believe in you. I trust you with my life, and I give you my heart and soul. Make me new. Help me to know you as you are Almighty, Wondrous, Everlasting, Son of Man, Elegant and Excellent. Amen.
