We are continuing our BaseCamp series this Sunday called O.M.G., a study on learning to call on the powerful Name of our Creator, Savior, and Sustainer in worship and prayer.
Last week we talked about using the phrase “OH MY GOD!” when praying in times of desperation and need. This week we get to see it used in worship of that great Name! See what I mean in Psalm 71:22-23.
I will also praise you with the harp
for your faithfulness, O my God;
I will sing praises to you with the lyre,
O Holy One of Israel.
My lips will shout for joy,
when I sing praises to you;
my soul also, which you have redeemed.
While God does long for us to call out to him in times of need, how beautiful it is to also worship him with awe and wonder over who God is and His work in our lives. In times of worship we get to cry out, “Oh My God, YOU ARE AWESOME!”
When have you found yourself in awe and wonder of God? Perhaps it was in nature when you saw the greatness of a mighty mountain or in the delicate nature of a baby bird. Maybe it was a powerful healing in the life of someone you loved, or maybe, like the song writer, you’ve found yourself amazed by the great love of God that is steadfast and sure:
“Waves of mercy, waves of grace
Everywhere I look, I see your face.
Your love has captured me,
Oh My God, this love, how can it be?!?”
As you go through this coming week, take time to stop and let God amaze you. I’m sure you won’t be sorry you did!
OH MY GOD, YOU ARE AMAZING!!!
