"O" Magnify the Lord...

The last several days, I've been reminded of some of the key characteristics of God. These reminders - these truths - have been sustaining truths that keep my hope set on something solid.

God is: Omnipotent

He is an all-powerful God...nothing is too difficult for Him.

Jeremiah 32:17 "Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You."

God is: Omnipresent

He is everywhere. Niether time nor space can contain Him.

Psalm 139:7-10 "Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me."

God is: Omniscient

He is all-knowing.

Psalm 139:1-6 "LORD, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue,behold, O LORD, you know it altogether. You hem me in, behind and before,and lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it."

And while we're looking at Psalm 139...

Psalm 139:13-16

"For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them."

Did you happen to visit K4T lately? =)
Molly was reciting this on the way to church last night:
Q. What is our great God like?
A. Our great God is all-powerful, all-wise, and all places at once.
Job 40:9 "Hast thou an arm like God? or canst thou thunder with a voice like him?"
(I was thinking of these great "O" words!)
