Summary: The awesomenss of God demands our worship. God restored us to our original worship position.
Why God Is Worshiped Here.
Isa 40:21-25 Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?
22It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:
23That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity.
24Yea, they shall not be planted; yea, they shall not be sown: yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth: and he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble.
25To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.
Do you really know God? Do you have a real and working knowledge of his power? Do you think that you grasp the awesomeness of God?
I submit today that I know we don’t have a clue as to how great and powerful God is. You know what I want to do today? I want to rock your comfortable little world with a revelation of Jesus Christ!
God is Self – Existent.
Ex 3:15 15And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.
I don’t have the time, and there really isn’t a need to marshal out a page full of scriptures that validate this Truth. God is God all by himself!
Notice here what he says for Moses to tell Pharaoh. He said I want you to go and tell him that I am that I am has sent you.
He didn’t say tell him that “I was” sent you, or “I want to be” has asked you to go.
Folks let’s get this straight early today. There is nothing about God that has ceased to be or hasn’t yet been. He is the Great I Am! He is the root of all existence. All life flows from him. Is his the immutable, holy, eternal One!
He alone can say, “I am God and there is none else.” He declares, “ I lift up my hand to heaven and say, I live forever.”
He is the only self-existent, self-sustained, underived being. We need to lay hold on some truths about God today.
He exists of his own nature! He is the only light of life. Every other life is a reflection of him.
Realize with me that there was a time when there wasn’t any life on this earth. There was a time when it was void, without a creature. Then suddenly, they stated coming from him as if they were coming off a potter’s wheel!
Every creature, great and small, depends on him for sustenance. Every creature depends on him for its every day existence.
Let me show you a powerful thing. There are some things that are around us that we know are a necessity to us. They exist out of necessity.
Air. Gravity. Balance. Heat. Cool. Light. On and on.
You know what? The reason they are necessities to us is because God created the necessity. He said they will need this, here it is! It is all by his divine decree!
Your little problems don’t have an impact on God! They don’t rob him of his ability!
Is anything to hard for the lord! No!
God is independent. Name me one other being that is. You can’t! God alone is. We need food, water, and rest to replenish ourselves after the exertions of our days. Not so with God. He is self-sufficient.
He never wearies, never tires, never depletes his resources. In fact he does not have resources. He doesn’t need them!
That is why we worship him here today! This great awesome God loves us! We worship THE unmovable, forever established king of all kings.
Every knee shall bow to him!
Pharaoh said who is this God that I should consider him? Did that bother God? Did he go into a tizzy and say, Oh no Pharaoh doesn’t know me? No!
Just tell him for me Moses, Let my people go!
The devil may be telling you that he isn’t going to let you be delivered. He may be telling you that you aren’t going to make it.
But I have good news for you. The devil doesn’t count! God is not listening to him and neither should you.
Jesus said that you should know the truth and the truth shall set you free, and he went on to say if the son therefore has set you free, you shall be free indeed!
