Meditation on the greatness of God

He is God.

Do we really remember what that means?

He is great. He is awesome. He is magnificent. He is more fantastic than any human mind can ever comprehend. He is omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent. He is before creation was and now and is now and is when the world comes to an end. He made everything - the highest mountain, the lowest abyss of the sea; the greatest of galaxies and the tiniest of particles; the simplest creature, and you. He is Beginning, He is End. He is merciful and loving and kind; He is just and righteous, holy and wrathful. His favor never ceases; his grace is deeper than the sea and higher than any mountain. He meets every need, heals every wound, dries every crying eye. He reigns forever, enthroned with the world as His footstool. He is the Holy One, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords - and He is our Father.

He is Yahweh.

He is I AM.

He is Messiah.

He is All in All.

He is Father God; He is Christ Jesus the Son; He is the Holy Spirit, our Teacher and Comforter.

My God is great enough to save even those who have rejected Him; He has the strength to heal our wounded souls. My God is God Almighty, He is without comparison. No other god compares in greatness, in mercy, in splendor and majesty, in love, in holy and righteous judgment, in grace - no other god compares in every way or even in any way. There is no room for other "truths:" my God is truth. There is no other way to heaven: He is the way, the truth, and the life, and no one comes to God but by Jesus Christ. There is no other spiritual experience that is valid: the Holy Spirit alone is divine; every other spirit is a source of deception.

He is God.

Do we really remember what that means?
