Behold Your God!

The more we have to do with man — the more his littleness, fickleness, and emptiness appear.

But the more we read, think, or have to do with God — the more His greatness, majesty, and infinite sufficiency is discovered!

He proclaims Himself, "the Great and Mighty God, the Lord Almighty is His name, great in counsel and mighty in work!" Infinity, omnipotence, and eternity find a home and a center only in Him.

[James Smith]


Isaiah 40:9 ...  O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God!
Jeremiah 32:17-19 ... Ah Lord God! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:  Thou shewest lovingkindness unto thousands, and recompensest the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them: the Great, the Mighty God, the Lord of hosts, is his name, Great in counsel, and mighty in work: for thine eyes are open upon all the ways of the sons of men: to give every one according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings:
1 John 2:17 ... And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
