Today, we went to the mountains of Kerala. They were impressive to say the least. As we looked out over these giants of granite, we couldn’t help but feel insignificant. The glory of the mountains overshadowed our presence.
When we stand in awe of things like this we need to look through the creation and onto the Creator. It is amazing to know that there is a God who created the Mountains. I can’t imagine standing in His presence, talk about insignificant.
“The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth. The heavens proclaim his righteousness, and all the peoples see his glory.” (Psalm 97:5-6)
It is good for us to have a big God. Too often we make God too small. We fashion him into a false idol and worship him as if he just a man with superpowers. This is blasphemy. God is greater that we can imagine. His power is without limits. Melting mountains doesn’t even begin to explain who He is.
Seeing the true God causes us to fear him, and fear is the beginning of knowledge (Proverbs 1:7). It is the knowledge that we are sinners and we need a Savior, and his name if Jesus Christ. Second, after accepting Christ, we are adopted into God’s family. Meaning that God is our Dad. We can honestly say my dad is bigger than your dad, and boldly stand. Recognizing the power of your Father allows you to “confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?” (Hebrews 13:6).
