Today is April 1 and this starts the A-Z challenge where I share on adoration. To adore God is to give our entire devotion. It is not about making request of God, but giving Him our whole heart and all of our affection. To adore God is to exalt His loveliness, which has great power. To adore Him is to focus on Him with faith in who He is. The word I chose for today is Awesome.
While listening to Charles Swindoll one morning driving to work, he shared that the attribute Awesome belongs to God and God only. However, we use the word awesome to describe a sunrise, a sunset, an outfit, a meal, or just to say “have an awesome day.”
Daniel was a man of prayer, in the verse Daniel 9:4 he says, “I prayed to the Lord my God and confessed. Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments.”
You answer us with awesome and righteous deeds, God our Savior, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas. Psalm 65:5
For when you did awesome things that we did not expect, you came down, and the mountains trembled before you. Isaiah 64:3
Who can forget the song: Our God (our god) is an Awesome God
He Reigns (he reigns) from heaven above
With Wisdom (with wisdom) pow’r and love
Our God is an Awesome God
Lastly, Nehemiah says, “LORD, the God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments. Nehemiah 1:5
Beloved, God is the only one that deserves the attribute AWESOME.
