WONDER

WONDER

Can you remember the first time you were in awe at God’s greatness or stopped in your tracks by His goodness? When we come in contact with the reality of God, everything else pales in comparison. It is easy to stray with all of the demands, pressures, and temptations in this life, the art of being a Christian is staying in that place of wonder at His magnificence. The Holy Spirit keeps His majesty in our view. He can do this in a multitude of ways, if we are hungry. It can come through the sudden appearance of a glorious sunset, or possibly in the silence while you are alone in your room, or in the celebration of His gathered saints, the important thing for each of us is that we stay in wonder before the Glory of our great God. Leeland has a powerful song about this wonder, check out his lyrics.

I Wonder by Leeland

At the stars in the night, I wonder
At Your lightning in the sky, I shudder
Your glory is a blanket that covers
Every living thing
I’m in awe at the majesty of who You are
Your love is a seal burnt inside my heart
All of the day I want to be where You are
Holy Father
And it feels like there’s not enough praise inside of me
With all these words, all my heart can sing is holy
You are holy
Jesus Christ
You bled Your love, laid down Yourself
And gave me life
In naked shame You hung and You were lifted high
Here I lay in awe and wonder
I am afraid
For no one’s ever sacrificed and loved me this way
So on my face I fall under Your heavy grace
Here I lay in awe and wonder
And I wonder
I’m in awe at the majesty of who You are
Your love is a seal burnt inside my heart
All of the day I want to be where You are
Holy Father
And it feels like there’s not enough praise inside of me
With all these words, all my heart can sing is holy
You are holy

Have you ever lay in stunned silence before the Lord? It’s not something that you can make happen, but when it does happen, nothing in this life can compare. How can you describe His closeness when He is not only on you but in you? How can you tell of His power, when His power created all things? What can you say about His wisdom, He knows all things? If you try to describe His kindness, you run out of words before you even start. Solomon said that the beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord. I would say it like this, life finally begins when you step into the wonder of our great God. Before that time, you are just existing. Maybe your reading this today is meant to begin an awakening in your soul. If you feel the hunger level growing inside, open your Bible, or lay on the floor, or turn up the worship music; this could be the day that your life really begins.
