God Words: #2 Greatness
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
The Lord is great (Psalm 96:4).
There are many ways people measure personal greatness. Awards for great achievements can be found in business, entertainment, science, and medicine, to name a few. In sports the acronym G.O.A.T. is used to identify the “greatest player of all time.” Of course, it is a title that is often debated due to the differences regarding the era, the equipment, and how the game was played.
In Scripture, God’s greatness is clearly proclaimed. God is never called “the greatest of all time” because God has no competition or competitor. There is no “god” to compare with the true and living God. God’s greatness is beyond any form of measurement. God does great things because He can do no less.
God alone is great! A small child can grow into a big adult, but God didn’t grow into His greatness.
He didn’t become great. He didn’t sharpen His skills to become great. He is eternally great. No unknown god or false god is going to appear one day and become the “great god”. No little “g” god can ever become the capital “G”. Only our great God can do great things.
God is great in character, authority, power, attributes, and worth. His greatness is notable, remarkable, exceptional, and unmatchable. God’s greatness can do the biggest things (like creating the stars, and the galaxies).
God is so great He doesn’t miss a thing. His greatness also means He can do the smallest things, down to the tiniest detail. His knowledge is so great that there’s not a detail in your life He overlooks, not a need He’s unaware of, and not a circumstance that takes Him by surprise.
God not only cares about you, but He greatly cares about you. He
not only loves you, but He greatly loves you. He not only blesses
you, but He greatly blesses you with all the spiritual blessings that are in
Christ. Let Christ be your future and your future will be great; let Him work
through you and your work will be great; let Him be your reward and your reward
will be great.
