Awesome Majesty

“He comes from the north as golden splendor;
With God is awesome majesty.
. . .He is excellent in power,

In judgement and abundant justice;
He does not oppress.
Therefore men fear Him . . .”   Job 37:22-24

A majestic Holy just God IS a fearsome thing!

Oh Lord, help us remember not to fear those who judge us , are unjust and oppress . .. because we have You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .


Before His splendor
we fall down
and His majesty
reflects and surrounds
as He judges us plainly
justice in His hands
the same palms that were pierced
out of His love for man.


  1. Oh WOW, Sis Deb–such an excellent poem today. The same Hands judge us justly that were pierced by love for us–wow, I’m nearly speechless (rare). God bless you to overflowing today–love, sis Caddo

  2. Love your poem. Brings to mind Chris Tomlin’s song “How Great is Our God.”

  3. Those same mighty hands were pierced for us… Wonderful reminder of our great, loving God, who in His power, does not oppress like others can. Bless you today,

  4. thank you my friend for these words. love ya.

  5. “Our God is an awesome God. He reigns from heaven above. With wisdom, power, and love. Our God is an awesome God.”

    The Rich Mullins’ song takes me back to the 1990’s, when I used to sing this chorus over and over again just because it made me feel so good.

    The only thing which is not accurate in your post today are these words: “And here’s a simple poem . . .”

    Not so, because this is a profound and deep revelation which can only come after knowing Him in an intimate way.

    This poem is a 10.

  6. Once again you have spoken so eloquently in a few words.

    Reminds me of something Mr Anon said:
    If we do not yield to the LOVE of God
    And be changed by the GRACE of God
    There will be NO WAY to ESCAPE the WRATH of God.

    The LOVE of God is something that should be shouted from the rooftops, but I’m afraid the devil uses it to lull people into a false sense of spiritual security.

    God IS love – but He is also JUST.

  7. Oh that we might catch a true glimpse of our “AWESOME GOD” !

  8. Thank you for the overflowing blessings! We are dancing in them! 🙂 God bless you as He loves you fully today! I love you too!

  9. I like that Chris Tomlin song, Bill! Most all Chris Tomlin songs, come to think of it. 🙂 God bless you as you look to Him each day!

  10. Thank you, Ali, for picking up on the oppression thing. So true! All that power but never a misuse of it. God bless you and show you His splendor today! love and prayers!

  11. Love you too, Terry , and praying for God to make a way for you to have the kind of care in place for Al that you both need! God bless you!

  12. You just make me smile, Mr. Larry. You had me thinking for a second . ..what did I goof up on? haha! Rich Mullins was the first Christian artist that my friend Andy S. ( thank you, Andy, if you’re reading!) introduced me to. So there is a special connection to his music. And this song is a classic.
    God bless you as you worship Him in all His majesty and splendor!

  13. Wow, mentor Angela . ..thank you for sharing something really important. God is love . .but He is also JUST. We can’t have one of His characteristics without the others.
    God bless you as you yield and are changed , worshiping your amazing God today!
    p.s. I always love those Mr. Anon quotes! 🙂

  14. I feel this, Pastor J . .. we just need a glimpse. May we yearn for Him each day! God bless you!

  15. God is an Awesome God! I too am thankful He forgives my sins!
    Thank you, Deb, for another wonderful post! I feel the Holy Ghost flowing from your blog today!
    God Bless You!

  16. Yay! I think you brought the Holy Spirit with you when you came, Lady Dei! 🙂 Thank you and God bless you as you worship Him!

  17. Very worshipful…

  18. Thank you for your worship of Him too, Melody! God bless you!

  19. Amen! For lost and saved alike …He truly is awesome, deserving of our reverence and fearful indeed! This post is an encouragement to me to trust HIm with all the events of my days!

  20. “He truly is awesome . ..” Yes indeed! Thank you , Pastor Rob, as you teach us His Word and to fear Him in that good way. 🙂 God bless you and encourage you today!

  21. This so reminds me of our deep love for our kids. We would give our lives for them. How many little kids ‘worship’ their parents… trusting them utterly. That is such a picture of us believing totally in this marvelous God who does not oppress us… who has good in mind for us …always. We can put our absolute trust in Him. He is Trustworthy
    Gosh I love your simple poems dear friend!

  22. You are so so kind, faith filled fisherlady . . and I can see God reflected in your love for your family. That kind of “do anything” love. That kind of love that was pierced for us. God bless you as you trust Him and His hand upon you! love you bunches!
