“The Lord reigns, let the nations tremble; he sits enthroned between the cherubim let the earth shake.
Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his holy mountain, for the Lord our God is holy.”
Psalm 99: 1, 9
So Nico why quote verses that speak of God’s holiness? Does God really make the earth shake?
Have you ever heard loud thunder? So yes He does! Well Nico, can’t you just write about love?
Well I do write that God loves us! I’m so glad he does and He is full of mercy.
But I once heard a preacher say, that in order to understand God’s mercy, we need to get just a glimpse of His holiness. I think that’s true.
He is perfect and the Scriptures tell He is holy. One of the reasons we are given this understanding is so that we will worship and reverance Him for who He is!
He is both holy and He is love, at the same time! Not just one or the other. Ain’t that so cool?
I think if we only focus on one aspect of God we will either have a concept that sin is ok, or that God is always judging us, hammering away at us because we are sinful!
Lord God thank you that you are holy, far above all that is in this earth!! But thank You also that You are full of mercy and love for us!
We love You Lord God, help us to follow You each day! Hallelujah and amen!
