Psalm 90:2 – Think Forever Today

Before the mountains were born,

before you gave birth to the earth and the world,

from eternity to eternity, you are God.



Over the past 50 years or so, the word “awesome” has become somewhat diluted. The designation formerly reserved for breathtaking beauty and bewildering power has become more associated with extra delicious pizza. This is not to say your favorite restaurant is lackluster, but that the liberal repetition of such a ferocious word has coincided with our diminishing view of what is truly awesome – including our Lord.   

 

If you’ve ever gazed onto a mountain range, you have probably experienced the phenomenon of feeling infinitesimal in the presence of something so grandiose. Even the silence of such a moment can be thunderous as you contemplate your place in the world among such magnificence.


That is awe. The mountains, in their majesty, are awesome. And our LORD made them all.

 

God does not change. He was holy and loving and just and powerful before time began and will continue to be after all these temporary things have ended. He shaped the mountains, conceived of the entire world, and endowed people with the very ingenuity to create extra delicious pizza. And that truly is awesome.

I am guilty of overusing - or misusing - that wonderful descriptive word: awesome. Thank you for this musing that reminds me of that.....I know for myself I need to find other words to use as AWESOME really should be reserved for reflecting on the most High always and only. 💟

That was an extra delicious 60-second thought! Someday I’ll tell you the story of an 80-something woman who scolded me for misusing the word awesome…

BTW, your 1-minute devotionals are not true to time, in my experience. Your simple point generally explodes into a thousand more…which is also extra delicious 🙌🏻☝🏻👏🏻
