Greatness of God

Read Psalm 86. The prayer I said before eating as a child began: “God is good. God is great.” God is great. Psalm 86:10b says, “What greatness belongs to You” (TPT). Today, we will look at the greatness of God.

God is great. He is incomprehensible. We cannot fully know Him. Psalm 139:6 says, “Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it” (ESV). In Romans 11:33, we read: “Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and of the knowledge of God! How unsearchable His judgments and untraceable His ways” (CSB).

In Ephesians 1:19, we read about the immeasurable greatness of God’s power. Paul continues the passage, and mentions how all things are under the feet of Jesus because of this power. The Bible says that Jesus is above all. He is above all authorities. He is above all powers. He is above all dominions. He is above every name named in this age and the age to come. He is above the Church. 

Ephesians 1 mentions that God raised Jesus, that death was defeated, the power of death broken (v. 20). The passage mentions that God seated Jesus at His right hand (v. 20). We read that God set Jesus over all demonic powers (v. 21). The passage continues to mention how God gave Jesus as head over all things to the Church (v. 22). 

As we review the greatness of God, we note the greatness of God the Father, the greatness of Jesus the Son, and the greatness of the Holy Spirit. Let us pray. “How great You are, O Sovereign LORD! There is no one like You. We have never even heard of another God like You” (2 Samuel 7:22 NLT). “Great is the LORD! He is most worthy of praise! No one can measure His greatness” (Psalm 145:3 NLT). Amen.
