Overwhelmed by God
Have you been overwhelmed by God?
Can you imagine how the Apostle Paul felt as he wrote his letter to the Roman church and pondered the grandeur of the eternal Deity? Of course, his epistle was more than a mere letter between friends. The Apostle was given the task of transmitting God’s word. Even so, as he wrote, he experienced what other true believers also sense as we reflect on the glory of the Holy One. He was overwhelmed by God. Human pen or tongue cannot adequately describe His majesty, but as we pray and worship Him we are compelled to try.
Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!
“For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?” “Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?”
For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.
