Praise! ‘Our God is an Awesome God’

This is the hymn I woke up with today, which I sang to myself this morning on my bike–a song to strengthen the soul, and give courage: Our God is an Awesome God, here performed by Michael Smith in concert with the whole audience joining in.

Youtube says “comments have been disabled” for this page. Probably it’s because this video makes atheists gnash their teeth and levitate.

But this is what it makes me think of:

God is sovereign over all of His creation, and everything in it.

The wicked are exalted in this age. They walk and talk and do whatever they please, in great pride and power.

But they are only grown as great and proud as God Himself has permitted, and they will endure not one minute longer than He has ordained.

The day and hour of their destruction is already marked on God’s calendar.

For our God is indeed an awesome God.

  1. Yes, He is! I think of it many times a day, and as I see brainless people on TV dancing, laughing like hyenas, celebrating (what?) I can’t help thinking
    “as it was in the days of Noah…the flood came and swept them all away”
    They do not honor Him as God…so He gave them up to a reprobate mind.”

  2. This is such an awesome hymn – and watching all of those young people on their feet, hands uplifted, singing praises to Our God – well, it just doesn’t get much better than that! If you watch Michael’s face as he begins, you can see the surprise and joy on his face when all those young people began to sing praise.
