Friday - Psalm 93 - The Lord, Strong & Mighty

ACK in Psalm 24 we read these words, "Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle" (Psalm 24:8).  God is great! And, He is our God.  Our God reigns!  He is majestic.  He is strong. He is steady, solid and eternal. He is holy.  He is reliable.  He is the God... the mighty God; God Almighty.  There are not enough names or adjectives that we can compile to describe Him adequately.  In reality, we don't even know Him, at least not in His fullness, essence and infinity. We are only getting to know Him, and our capacities are far too shallow to grasp just Who we have discovered... or rather, Who has revealed Himself to us.  Our minds and our senses are quickly exhausted.  So, when we come into His presence, it is fitting that we be holy (Psalm 93:5).

Now, we're still awaiting our full sanctification.  We have not yet been fully adopted (Romans 8:23).  We want to measure up... I suppose what we want is to make Him proud, or to somehow please Him in some significant way.  The contrast is startling... which is why we are at His mercy and are subject to His grace.  He is so great and we're so small.  He is strong, but we are weak.  He is wise; we are foolish.  He is perfect; we are imperfect.  He is righteous; we are unrighteous.  He is infinite; we are finite.  He is the Creator; we are mere creations.  He is worthy; we are unworthy.  He is the Lord!  Worship Him!
