For the Lord is the Great God…
In His Hands are the Depths of the Earth,
And the Mountain Peaks Belong to Him.
The Sea is His for He made it,
and His hands formed dry land.
Psalm 95: 3-5
When I read the verses above, I had to review them over and over again to try and fully grasp the magnitude of God. Most of us have sung the song, “He’s got the whole world in His hands…,” but have we ever really stopped and thought about the real truth in those words? These verses tell us that He has the depths of the earth in His hands. In other words, the earth and EVERYTHING in the earth are in His hands. The mountains and the sea and dry land belong to Him…He formed it all with His hands. Sometimes my view of God’s greatness is limited to my human capacity to understand His attributes. Even though I may not comprehend the amazing power and wisdom of God, I do know that He also has me in the palm of His hand…He knows my name, and it is carved in the palm of His hand. He knows every intimate detail about me and has known me before I was formed in my mother’s womb. The same God who created the Earth and everything in it, knows me and loves me with his ever-lasting love….truly, “The Lord is the Great God!”
