In Psalm 77:13-14 we read, "…who is as great a God as our God? Thou art the God who doest wonders …" In Psalm 86:10 we read, "For Thou art great, and doest wondrous things: Thou art God alone." When we think of the greatness of our God, we must call to mind the 139th Psalm, where the major theme is the WONDER OF GOD. David shares with us four wonders of God in these verses.

 

FIRST: in verses 1-6, we are told about the WONDER of God's KNOWLEDGE. In theological terms this is called the OMNISCIENCE of God. It simply means that God knows everything. If God is God at all, then certainly He must know everything; otherwise, He would be a "limited God," and thus not God at all.

 

SECOND: in verses 7-12, we are told about the WONDER of God's PRESENCE. The theologians call this OMNIPRESENCE: God is present everywhere at all times. An atheist wrote on the chalkboard: "GOD IS NOWHERE." To which upon seeing it a Christian using an eraser made an significant change to make it read, "GOD IS NOW HERE." NO ONE ESCAPES THE PRESENCE OF GOD.

 

THIRD: in verses 13-18, we are told about the wonder of God's POWER. Here we have OMNIPOTENCE of God: "He is all powerful." In describing OMNIPOTENCE these verses make it clear that God, THE AUTHOR OF LIFE, is personally concerned with the CONCEPTION, DEVELOPMENT, and BIRTH of each child.

 

The Hymn “How Great Thou Art” reminds us of God’s unlimited power and love in creation and redemption. The original text was written by a Swedish pastor, Carl Boberg, in 1886. While visiting a beautiful country estate, Boberg was caught in a sudden thunderstorm. The awesome and violent lightning and thunder quickly ended, leaving clear brilliant sunshine and the calm, sweet singing of the birds in the trees. Falling on his knees in awe and adoration of Almighty God, the pastor wrote nine stanzas of praise. The text was later translated into English by Pastor Stuart Kline and His wife, English missionaries to the people of the Ukraine. In 1939 the fourth stanza was added to this hymn.

 

O Lord my God! When I in awesome wonder, Consider all the works Thy hands have made,

I see the stars, I hear the mighty thunder, Thy power through out the universe displayed.

 

When thro' the woods and forest glades I wander, And Hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;

When I look from lofty mountain grandeur, And hear the brook, and feel the gentle breeze;

 

And when I think that God, His Son not sparing, Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;

That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing, He bled and died, to take away my sin;

 

When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation, And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!

Then I shall bow in humble adoration, And there proclaim, MY GOD, HOW GREAT THOU ART!

 

Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee, How Great Thou art!, how Great Thou art!

Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee, How Great Thou art!, how Great Thou art!

 

This week would you take time to think once again about the unfathomable greatness of God and His wonderful redeeming love for each of us?

 

Remember: Every life without Christ is a mission field; every life with Christ is a missionary.

In His Amazing Grace,
Pastor David Miklas
