Yeah, I know I’ve posted this several times before–but how would you like to see 50,000 people singing this at the Inauguration ceremony? Not scripted, not planned: the hymn just breaks out. Like a volcano. Like “Let there be light!”
Crank up the volume, boys and girls. Our God is an awesome God!
Among the wisest things I’ve ever heard in my life was a very crisp one-liner delivered by a woman on a Christian panel talk show, many years ago on our local Christian radio station.
Asked “What do you do?” when days are dark, your faith is tested constantly and you can just feel it being worn away, when you just don’t seem to know much anymore, what do you do–
“Sing louder,” she said. I’ve never forgotten it.
Our God is an Awesome God is one of those things you may wish to sing louder. It’s been in my head all morning, and I’m glad.
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.
