God Is Greater (originally posted January 12, 2011)

 

 

I recently was reading Psalm 40. I have liked that particular psalm for many years. As with anything, though, it is easy to become overly familiar. So, just to keep me on my toes, I was reading it from The Message translation, and the words struck me anew.

 

“The world’s a huge stockpile of God-wonders and God-thoughts. Nothing and no one comes close to you! I start talking about you, telling what I know, and quickly run out of words. Neither numbers nor words account for you.” (Psalm 40:5)

 

I love that. “The world’s a huge stockpile of God-wonders and God-thoughts.” It’s true!

 

“Nothing and no one comes close to you! I start talking about you, telling what I know, and quickly run out of words.” I understand exactly what the psalmist means. Combine every language on earth and there are still not enough superlatives to even come close to describing God.

 

At the risk of sounding trite: What an amazing God we serve!
