One of the great motivators to worship and to rejoice in the Lord is a sense of wonder in the presence of God. Deep down in our souls there is a hunger and a thirst for the awe, marvel and wonderment of something and someone far bigger than who we are.
There is an indelible and intricate connection between the belief that God is all-powerful, ever-present, always approachable and loving and one who can completely and utterly be trusted to act on your best behalf. This conviction casts out fear and anxiety and anchors our daily lives in a very secure place.
If there is one thing we should never do, it is to shrink God to the size of our world and our own rationales. Rather we need to let our spirit soar into the size of His world, His majesty and greatness. Go deep into the Bible and find out how worthy of worship your God is. “One’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.” (Oliver W. Holmes Sr.)
If perhaps today you are praying with lack lustre faith; if you find your days emptied of joy; if hope seems hopeless and vision sightless, make it your mission to stretch your mind by resizing your God. It may very well be that at the heart of our problem is a misunderstanding of who God is and what He can do.
O LORD, our Lord, How excellent [majestic, awesome] is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens. When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him? O LORD, our Lord, How excellent [or great or majestic or awesome] is Your name in all the earth! Ps. 8: 3, 4
