How Great Is Our God

Today for our Thursday Music devotional, How Great Is Our God by Chris Tomlin.

The splendor of a King, clothed in majesty
Let all the Earth rejoice, all the Earth rejoice
He wraps himself in light
And darkness tries to hide
And trembles at His voice
Trembles at His voice
How great is our God, sing with me
How great is our God, and all will see
How great, how great is our God

The first verse and chorus here are magnifying the name of the Lord and communicating the truths of Psalm 104.2, Isaiah 66.2, and Nahum 1.5.

The chorus sings the wonderful truth that our God is great, and Chronicles 2.5 tells us that our God is greater than all gods.

Age to age He stands, and time is in His hands
Beginning and the end, beginning and the end
The Godhead Three in One, Father, Spirit, Son
The Lion and the Lamb, the Lion and the Lamb

Name above all names
You are worthy of all praise
My heart will sing how great is our God

Revelation 21.6 and 22.13 tell us that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are the alpha and the omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. There was never a time that our great God did not exist, and there will never be a time when our great God will not exist. 

What great encouragement and comfort that brings us. No matter what we are going through, no matter what we are facing, we can take it to one who has always been, will always be, someone so permanent, stable, not going anywhere, a rock that is higher and stronger than us.

The idea of the Godhead three in One, can be found as far back as Genesis 1.1 wherein we see a Hebrew plural word used in the singular to convey the fact that God is three distinct persons but One.

Enjoy this song, worshiping the name above all names (Philippians 2.9), and let our hearts sing how great is our God.
