Awesome: extremely impressive or daunting; inspiring great admiration, apprehension, or fear.
Our God is awesome!
When I hear this phrase, I also hear the song by Rich Mullins. And when I see the definition of awesome, I can’t help but think of how right he was.
God is extremely impressive. He does inspire great admiration, and we are told to fear the Lord. That is, not to be afraid of Him, but to be so awed and taken away with His grandeur and splendor.
So yes, our God is an awesome God, and He should be praised as so. But are we actually doing this?
If we are eating a meal and we’re told that the steak is awesome, we wouldn’t fill up on everything else. We’d make sure to have the steak first so we can enjoy how awesome it is. We wouldn’t let the side dishes fill us up.
It should be the same way with God. When it comes to our faith, we let so many other little things fill us up, and we miss out on His awesomeness.
What are you letting fill you? The things of this world, or the awesomeness of God? I encourage you to bask in His presence and His awesomeness today. Don’t wait!
