Greatness, His Gentleness
~Thy Gentleness hath made me great~
How can this be? In a generation which increasing sees greatness through sports figures, movie stars, military power and even force, the Lord pierces our hearts with an entirely different concept; His gentleness makes us great.
King David…penning these words knew the Lord in intimacy which most of us will never attain to in this life.
How beautiful God was to the Psalmist! How beautiful God desires to become to us.
It is a worthy pursuit, the pursuit of God and His ways with us. How our breath is almost taken away when we see Him in His condescension towards us. He stoops and bends to us from His lofty Throne to reveal to us a God that, although He is Mighty and All-powerful, yet...He is gentle towards His own.
Our Creator, our Saviour our Strength, the One who has all might, power and Who Created all, is also gentle! Who can fathom it? This One Who will someday create a new Heaven and Earth is the gentle One.
We live in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. Whenever we drive up to Tahoe I am totally amazed at the grandeur and majesty of those mountains. What power, how awesome! One cannot begin to imagine the greatness behind a God who with one wave of an outstretched arm said about those mountains…Let there be. And the mountains were brought forth at the word of His command.
And yet, the same One who created those mountains with just a breath condescends in gentleness to me... I bow, I worship….
Virginia, this is just great and so interesting and full of inspiring truths. King David wrote psalms and songs. Today God lets us write poems and songs, which are just as pleasing to God if they honor Him. I have never thought of this in this light before, but we can feel a kinship with the shepherd boy who became a mighty king, because we express our awe and love for God in our writings as he did. Thanks for sharing. Thomas
