Magnificent God!

12 But God made the earth by his power; 
   he founded the world by his wisdom 
   and stretched out the heavens by his understanding. 

13 When he thunders, the waters in the heavens roar;
he makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth. 
He sends lightning with the rain 
   and brings out the wind from his storehouses.
(Jeremiah 10:12-14)

As the thunderstorm woke me this morning, God reminded me of His Magnificence, His Greatness, His Power.  I continue to be in awe of the daily gall I have to try to be the "queen" of my own life.  Don't I know what's best for me?  Don't I know myself better than anyone else?  Uh, NO!!  Luke 12:7 plainly lets me know that "the very hairs of your head are all numbered."

I've heard it said that there is only One King, and He's not taking applications for His position, so as the thunder rumbles outside, the lightning lights up a greenish-yellow sky (are there any warnings out?), I am appreciating the Majesty of the One King who sits high upon One Throne.

Join me in being in crazy AWE of our Creator today.

Lord Jesus,  I admit that I try to take you off your throne at times and put myself there, as if I know what's best and right for me.  help me to know my rightful place before you, kneeled at your feet in adoration and trust.  You do know best, and You know me better than I know myself.  Thank you for loving me enough to create me, and to save me.  I love you Jesus. 

"As the heavens are higher than the earth, 
so are my ways higher than your ways 
and my thought than your thoughts."  (Isaiah 55:9)
