SONG OF THE WEEK:  How Wonderful – Leeland

“How wonderful, how lovely is Your name
You captivate our hearts, You save us by Your grace
.”

Screen Shot 2018-11-29 at 9.30.19 AMSometimes, we just need to come to grips with the fact that words can never encapsulate the majesty and splendor of our amazing God. That truth is where songs like this take on a truly glorious and beautiful meaning.

Our God is beautiful, He’s amazing, glorious, and a great host of other grandiose descriptions. At the end of the day, there’s little more that we can say. He’s wonderful, kind, and gracious to us.

Ephesians 1:7-8 “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace, that He lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.”

God has lavished His rich grace upon us. Grace undeserved and freely given. When Paul states that God has LAVISHED us, it means that God has given in “extreme and outrageous fashion”. He has given us far more than we could ever seek or ask!

Praise be to His beautiful name for His wonderful salvation!

Exodus 15:11
“Who is like You among the gods, O LORD? Who is like You, majestic in holiness, Awesome in praises, working wonders?”

Psalm 104:1 “Bless the LORD, O my soul! O LORD my God, You are very great; You are clothed with splendor and majesty!”

Psalm 145:5 “On the glorious splendor of Your majesty And on Your wonderful works, I will meditate.”

Psalm 8:9 “O LORD, our Lord, How majestic is Your name in all the earth!”

Sometimes all we can say is “How great is the name of our Lord!”
