The Lord is king! Let the nations tremble! (Psalm 99:1, NLT)
In all the reading, I am most focused on God’s power, sovereignty and wisdom.
The Lord is king. Let the nations tremble.
When tragedy and horror strike, may I remember his word, what has passed and what will come.
Let them praise your great and awesome name. Your name is holy! (Psalm 99:3, NLT)
Going from the very lows of Job’s story to the enormity of terrors in Revelation, reverence humbles me.
Exalt the Lord our God! Bow low before his feet, for he is holy! (Psalm 99:5, NLT)
I went to get the mail last night. Our driveway is long. The moon was up and bright, lighting my way, and I noticed it so acutely. I looked to the sky and saw a few bright stars. One of my bucket list items for the next year is to get so far away that I can really see the night sky and stars, just like in pictures I’ve seen.
I think on my limited view of stars, and my limited experience in history, and my limited knowledge of all the riches of the Bible. There is so much more–a universe, all of humanity, and a God with a plan who spoke and it existed. When today seems so big before me, when questions don’t have answers yet, I want to live in reverence for God.
Lord, there is so much to see and so much to learn, and you are at the center of it all.
