In Awe...

In Awe...
Like a child, I am in love with you, and as your mercy flows and your greatness shows, I am in awe of you... Dear God. Love Misslara...

The musician who wrote the popular Nigerian praise song, "Today o, I will lift up my voice in praise"  was in attendance at my church on Sunday. Apart from his sonorous voice and depth of person, his short sermon got to me, he showed me another level of awe that was due God. I am a God lover but then I ask myself, do I give him enough credit, I complain at times, I am sometimes ungrateful for little blessings and  I say things and think things that may not give him the respect and love due him. 

Just as I began to think on this things, he draws my attention to the book of Job, chapters 38 to 40 precisely, he read a little and then he said "find out for yourself" I got home and decided to find out, and I have been in awe ever since... I'm a still in awe and all my problems seems to have disappeared due to the greatness of God in my eyes and heart now... I have found him on another level and i am grateful for that... I just want to say... I'm in awe.. 

Below are extracts from the chapters of the scriptures... all I can say is Selah...

           “Whoisthis who darkens counsel
By words without knowledge?
 Now prepare yourself like a man;
I will question you, and you shall answer Me.
 “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?
 To what were its foundations fastened?
Or who laid its cornerstone,
 When the morning stars sang together,
“Or who shut in the sea with doors,
When it burst forth and issued from the womb ( "I imagine God call out to the angels, shut the Door")When I made the clouds its garment,
And thick darkness its swaddling band;
 When I fixed My limit for it,
In Awe...
And set bars and doorsWhen I said,
‘This far you may come, but no farther,
And here your proud waves must stop!’
 “Have you entered the springs of the sea?
Or have you walked in search of the depths?
 Have the gates of death been revealed to you?
Or have you seen the doors of the shadow of death?Have you comprehended the breadth of the earth?
Tell Me, if you know all this.
 “Have you entered the treasury of snow,( The treasury of snow... that defies words)
Or have you seen the treasury of hail,
 Which I have reserved for the time of trouble,
For the day of battle and war?
 By what way is light diffused,
Or the east wind scattered over the earth?
