Catch this description of God in Psalm 104:

Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty. Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain: Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind: Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire: Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever” (Psalm 104:1-5).

Of course, when a person is trying to describe God, all the languages on the earth combined would fail to fully explain His presence; but these verses do a good job of laying out a visual picture for us of the majesty of God. Look at the verses with me today, and take a few moments to just ponder the blessing we have of knowing God as a personal Heavenly Father. He is described as great and clothed in honor. God is worthy of all the honor we can give Him. Sometimes I think we are so worried about getting honor for ourselves that we leave God totally out of the picture.

God is described as being clothed with honor and majesty, which make me think of the royal weddings everyone has been so caught up in. We try to make these events here on earth as majestic as possible. These all pale in comparison to the majesty that surrounds our God. He covers Himself with light like we cover ourselves with a coat in the winter. I can’t wait to see Him in Heaven! I think we will spend eternity being amazed with His splendor and might. I have always loved light as opposed to darkness, and it thrills me that God is covered in light!

God is then described as stretching out the heavens like a curtain. I can just imagine His awesome strength, and he peels back the heavens like I open a curtain on a window. He has created all the beauty in the depths of the oceans that human eyes have not even seen. The clouds, the wind, and even the foundations of the earth speak to how incredible He is. As I said earlier, all the words in the all the languages of the world would fail to adequately describe Who God is and what He is capable of doing. What is the purpose of this devotional today?

The psalmist said it best when he wrote, “Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great.” We ought to join the psalmist in praising God today. With the description above, I think we all ought to reflect today on how incredible our God is, and give Him praise!
