How “awesome” is “awesome?” – God is awesome!!!


It seems every generation has its own favorite way of describing something “over-the-top,” mind-boggling good,,, Something so great it boggles your mind!  For my generation, you’d just exclaim, “awesome!”  I remember a later generation using the term, “rad!”  A few have even adopted the old “Mary Poppins” movie term, “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!.

I just wonder what term you’d use to describe the greatness and goodness of God expressed in Psalm 111?  Chime in – let me know.  (It was part of my Bible reading during “coffee with the Lord this morning.)

‘Praise the Lord! I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation!  Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who delight in them.  Full of splendor and majesty is his work, and his righteousness endures forever.  He has caused his wondrous works to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and merciful.  He provides food for those who fear him; he remembers his covenant forever.  He has shown his people the power of his works, in giving them the inheritance of the nations.  The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy; they are established forever and ever, to be performed with faithfulness and uprightness.  He sent redemption to his people; he has commanded his covenant forever. Holy and awesome is his name!”

Com’on, give me a word you’d use to describe the greatness and goodness of God…
