His Majesty

“Majesty, worship His majesty!” These are the opening words to a song I first sang nearly 30 years ago in the presence of 10,000 plus evangelists from around the world. I recall the palpable presence of God and the goose bumps that were present.

This week as we continue to look at Abba as King, we will glance at His Majesty. “Majesty” just the word sounds intimidating to me. There is so much to say concerning the Lord’s majesty, I truly don't know where to begin. Let's start with the definition; the word in every language simply means “greatness.” In Abba's case, greatness is an understatement. Every part of Him is immeasurable greatness.

When I think of His majesty and His greatness, I generally think of two things; His holiness and His creativeness, as this relates to both nature and to people. Today, I want to touch on His creation, this earth and all that is in it.

My son, Jeff is an engineer. He gets paid to babysit and observe multi-million dollar telescopes. He has gotten to name comets and has seen dust particles rise from the moon's surface. What a job! When we contemplate how vast our universe is, how giant our galaxy, it serves us well to also remember the tininess of earth in that galaxy and the smallness of our galaxy amongst the other galaxies. And then, recall that these are all just a drop in His bucket! Now that is greatness indeed.

Read with me from 1 Chronicles Chapter 29: verse 11, "Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all."

So then, He is King and as King He is majestic! Everything that ever was, is, or will be, flows from Him as Creator.

We will pick this up next time and look at how He is our Father in all of this, but for this week gaze into His greatness and be willing to feel our resulting smallness.


Note: “but God” is a weekly ministry of Robinson Outdoors Products written for us by pastor and spiritual counselor, Thomas Paige. “But God” is posted each week on the ScentBlocker website and can be found there along with the archives of “but God” messages of past months and years. “But God” is also posted each week on ScentBlocker Facebook page and on Twitter.

You may ask, “why would Robinson, an outdoor products company with brands ScentBlocker and Tree Spider, making  products for hunters, spend its time on something like “but God”?”

Great question, as we here at Robinson consider our work place our mission field, our products bearing the John 3:16 inscription our outreach. For 2014, there is a laminated waterproof jacket pocket insert that contains the salvation message printed in two languages. And, we ask the Lord to provide more opportunities for us to be a light unto a dark world.

What responses do we receive from our customers? Each week thousands and thousands of people read the “but God” message online. We receive dozens and dozens of appreciative emails, rejoicing that a company has the courage to stand up for what it believes despite perhaps it not being the most popular thing to do these days. God has blessed our lives and our  business!

I hope you will enjoy this weeks’ “…but God” as Thomas continues the series, unto the Lord!
