Nimrod tried to build a city without God and erected the Tower of Babel. The Hanging Gardens and the glory of Babylon were once the pride of the Chaldeans. Babylon became the object of Nebuchadnezzar’s bragging. Lucifer boasted his dominion upon tempting Jesus in the wilderness. With the rise of the computer age, humanity has achieved much in various aspects over a short period of time. These are all considered as the greatest display of humanity’s achievements as recorded in the history books, but these are all nothing to what God has done and will do for the fallen race.
“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.” Philippians 2:5-8
Our God is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent; yes, our God is all-powerful, all-knowing, and He can also be present everywhere at the same time. But this very God who hung the stars in the sky: “the Dipper, Orion, the Pleiades, and the stars of the south” (Job 9:9), is concerned about even the little sparrows that tap on the windows of your car, and the flowers that bloom in the morning in your yard and fade away in the evening. He cares, He protects, and He provides, and above all He loves us more than anything He created in the vast universe.
Moses asked God to show him his glory and He did show His glory: And the LORD passed before him and proclaimed,
“The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty…” Exodus 34:5-7
We worship a God who is so powerful yet so merciful abounding in goodness and truth!
