MAJESTIC IS OUR GOD

Majestic Is Our God

Your peace flows through me like a river,
soothing and graceful.
Your presence embraces my soul like a hug,
comforting and restful.

I drink in the beauty of your establishment—

how wonderful is your supremacy.

The promises you gave are with me every day,
directing and truthful.
The assurance you provided is one to treasure,
enduring and fruitful.

I feed on the awesomeness of your creation—
how magnificent is your power.

You transformed me to this new way of thinking,
obeying and heedful.
You changed my soul to one of obedience,
willing and dutiful.

I taste the sweetness of your ambience—
how comforting is your presence.

I found this piece of God’s paradise,
calming and peaceful.
I have met with the Creator and Master,
redeeming and powerful.

I leave with the knowledge of His peace—
How majestic is our God!

A New Creation

2 Corinthians 5:17 ESV

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 

This is one of my favourite verses outside the Gospel books of the Bible. It’s speaks of God’s love for us, and the depth of that love. Because I’m so transfixed with His creation, I feel sometimes that my heart and soul will burst with its beauty, so when I read, “if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation” I can’t find enough words to explain how that radiates through me.

How can anyone gaze at the universe through a telescope and believe that it all just happened? How can we comprehend the incredible design of new life, whether that is a chicken, a horse, a whale or a human baby and disbelieve that it’s a miracle in the making? His creation is amazing; and it’s new every morning—just look at a sunrise.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1 NIV) Read it, and the following verses, and see that it “was good”. Take a moment to grasp the beauty and the expression of His love for you and be a new creation in Christ.
