Devotion 1-16-24, Psalm 145:5- "On the glorious splendor of Your majesty And on Your wonderful works, I will meditate." When have you meditated on God's splendor, majesty, and wonderful works, instead of thinking on your problems? When have you just sat, contemplating the unexplored galaxies, beautiful and strange. Or, when have you considered that each individual cell in your body is a tiny factory, independently functioning according to God's plan. Think about the majesty of God described in multiple places in the Bible. Exodus describes the Israelites encounter with God at Mt. Sinai- "So it came about on the third day, when it was morning, that there were thunder and lightning flashes and a thick cloud upon the mountain and a very loud trumpet sound, so that all the people who were in the camp trembled. Now Mount Sinai was all in smoke because the Lord descended upon it in fire; and its smoke ascended like the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mountain quaked violently." Exodus 19:16 , 18. In Revelation we find a description of God's throne room in heaven- "Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne was standing in heaven, and One sitting on the throne. And He who was sitting was like a jasper stone and a sardius in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, like an emerald in appearance. Out from the throne come flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder. And there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God; and before the throne there was something like a sea of glass, like crystal; and in the center and around the throne, four living creatures full of eyes in front and behind." Revelation 4:2 - 3 , 5 - 6. When problems seem to drown you and there seems no way of escape, force yourself away from those disturbances of life. Look at, meditate on, the glorious majesty of God. Think of how He loves you! Think about His sacrifice for you personally on the cross. Think about that and remember that He will rescue you in and out of every trouble. He is magnificent glory, and, He is intimately concerned for you personally. It is almost too much to fathom, but it is the truth. "Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face, and the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace."
