Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.

1 Chronicles 29:11 NIV

The Greatness

According to the arrive.com website, one of the reasons that Canada is great is because of quality of life. The online article says “One of the most common reasons newcomers move to Canada is to improve their overall standard of living. As per the U.S. News Best Countries rankings, Canada ranks #3 in terms of quality of life, behind Sweden and Denmark. The quality-of-life ranking is based on factors such as economic stability, income equality, the job market, safety, political stability, as well as the education and public health system.”

There are many things that are great in this world. There are great athletes, great leaders, great scenery, great food – I could go on and on. None of these compares to the greatness of the One who created everything and blesses us with every good and perfect gift. As far back as 1 Chronicles 29:11 this was written about our God: “Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.” In this proclamation about the nature of God, we catch a glimpse of His glory. The fullness of His power, glory, majesty and splendour is seen in all that He has created. Imagine how powerful He must be to speak this world into being. Imagine how glorious He must be to outshine the suns He created throughout the universe. Imagine His splendour when we consider that everything in heaven and earth is His. This is the God who loves you and whom you can trust to care for your daily needs.

These have been words from the heart.
