I STAND IN AWE OF YOU

Who is like you, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like you, majestic in holiness, awesome in glorious deeds, doing wonders? - Exodus 15:11

Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him! - Psalm 33:8

God

Colossians 3:22-25 – Bondservants, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not by way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord. 23 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. 25 For the wrongdoer will be paid back for the wrong he has done, and there is no partiality.

This morning as I am reading and studying the end of Colossians 3, a few things going on this morning. As I read I read I hear at the end of the house my wife also listening to a sermon about speaking on that as Christians, we are not to be focusing on the things here on earth, but on the things above.

Today, many still want to break free of many things, currently in this world it has to do with color and race. A very heated topic and debate indeed! But this cane be overcome in Christ when we all focus on Him above. For we are all made in the image of God, we are all fearfully and wonderfully made, yet many do not see this, and that is either because they do not know Christ, or they may know of Him, but not intimately! You can how a basic knowledge of something or someone, but if it is not intimately and with great purpose, we greatly miss out on the purpose of relationship.

So this is what I was reading in Matthew Henry’s commentary this morning.

Servants must do the duty of the relation in which they stand, and obey their master’s commands in all things which are consistent with their duty to God their heavenly Master. Not with eye-service,
as men-pleasers—not only when their master’s eye is upon them, but when they are from under their master’s eye. They must be both just and diligent. In singleness of heart, fearing God—without
selfish designs, or hypocrisy and disguise, as those who fear God and stand in awe of him.

There are too many who have stirred up the past of man, the abuses of man, those who think the the word of God is archaic and needs to be “modernized”. God’s Word is God’s Word, it is HIS authority and headship we are commanded to come under. It does not matter what descriptive word you want to use, but God is master, King, Lord, etc. and we are to be obedient subjects to Him.

Anyway, as I was finishing up this was in the end of the paragraph that caught my eye and heart, and immediately drew to memory the song “I STAND IN AWE OF YOU”. So I wanted to share with you this intimate moment and encourage you, that if you are going through a trial today, look to Him in awe and worship! If you are having a bad day at work or school, look to Him in awe and worship! If you are having a problem with your children, parent, or spouse, look to him in awe and worship! If there is anything else that you are going through, causing you to focus or feel on anything in this world, STOP! and look to him in awe and worship!

I am including a link to the music on youtube as well as the lyrics below, so that you too can stand in awe in Worship!

I Stand In Awe of You – Sovereign Grace Music

You are beautiful
You are beautiful beyond description
Too marvelous for words
Too wonderful for comprehension
Like nothing ever seen or heard
Who can grasp Your infinite wisdom?
Who can fathom the depth of Your love?
You are beautiful beyond description
Majesty, enthroned above
And I stand, I stand in awe of You
I stand, I stand in awe of You
Holy God, to whom all praise is due
I stand in awe of You
You are beautiful beyond description
Yet God crushed You for my sin
In agony and deep affliction
Cut off that I might enter in
Who can grasp such tender compassion?
Who can fathom this mercy so free?
You are beautiful beyond description
Lamb of God who died for me
And I stand, and I stand in awe of You
I stand, I stand in awe of You
Holy God, to whom all praise…
