Great is the Lord

Recently David and I have been studying forces of the earth in Science. It has been really interesting to learn about different things such as earthquakes, volcanoes, etc... Reading about the forces of the earth has showed me more and more about how great the Lord is. A volcano erupting is really big to us but to him it is a tiny thing. Earthquakes can change things in minutes for us but that is nothing to God. Below are some verses that talk about how great God is.

1 Chronicles 16:25 ~ For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, he is to be held in awe above all gods.

Psalm 48:1 ~ Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised In the city of our God!

Psalm 96:4 ~ For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; he is to be feared above all gods.

Psalm 145:3 ~ Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable.

In the Bible it tells us over and over how great the Lord is. We should praise Him because of His greatness. While studying the forces of the earth I have seen that I need to be praising him more then I am. Have you been praising him for his greatness? If not I encourage you to. One thing I have found helpful is to go outside and praise God for what He has done in my life, thanking Him for His goodness and for all the things He has made.

God is so great. :) I was reading through Job (the last chapters, that is) and it was boggling at how wonderful God is.

I remember studying in science about the forces of the earth. It was really interesting!
Thank you for reminding me to be thankful for His protection! Especially when I live in an area where earthquakes are common! One earthquake that was pretty big here was on Easter of 2010. It was a 7.2 magnitude at the epic center! We were 200 miles away from the epic center but we felt it quite a bit. It was pretty scary!

Bethany Grace - God is so great!! We serve an awesome God.

Lois - Wow, you have felt an earthquake! I hope I don't have to be in an earthquake. It sounds, from what I've read, that it would be pretty terrifing.

Jireh-Shaddai - Yes, God is so wonderful. Thanks for the comment.

Sarah - We do have a lot to praise Him for. That is one area that I have been working in - praising the Lord in everything - not just the good but also the bad.
