Awe of the Creator

Christmas can be such a “magical” time of the year.  One that brings hope, joy and something new.

It can also be a time of sorrow in missing those we love.  Those who have passed away from this life as we know it and into an eternal one.  Maybe it’s finances, health or family issues that bring you stress.  I want to encourage you that Jesus is still Prince of Peace and Lord of Lords and He’s bigger than whatever pain you may experience.

Don’t lose your sense of wonder and awe of The Father.

Psalm 139, shows David’s wonder of the Lord.  He recognizes that God has known his heart, He’s intimately acquainted with all of his ways.  He’s everywhere, All knowing, He’s not bound by time and nothing is hidden from Him.  David recognizes the power and he’s in awe of God Almighty!

He then goes on to say he recognizes that He made him fearfully and wonderfully.  Wonderful are the works of the Father.

David is brutally honest about his hate toward his enemies in verses 19-22.  If the Lord already knows your heart, He knows this too.  If you’re struggling, tell it to God.  David says he hates them with the utmost hatred.  That’s a lot of hate.  And yet, he shared it with the creator.

But through all of this, acknowledging God’s greatness and goodness and yes, even hatred, we see David coming back to a place of asking the Lord to continue to search his heart.  Try me and know my anxious thoughts; and see if there be any hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way.

An everlasting way…  a way that lasts forever, for ever and ever.  As your family celebrates the advent of Jesus’ first coming, may we never forget He is everlasting.  And one day, He’s returning for His church. May we all be ready to reign with the Prince of Peace and Lord of Lords.  May we know Him intimately.  May we be in awe of Him. In Jesus name, amen.
