As I was speaking with and listening for God today, I kept coming back to the same word again and again and again.
I took the liberty and pleasure of looking up all of the words we use in our language to describe this wonderful trait.
Magnificent means – Glorious, Wonderful. Characterized or attended with brilliance or grandeur
HE is magnificent. Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Arresting, brilliant, chivalric, commanding, elegant, elevated, exalted, excellent, fine, glittering, gorgeous, grand, high-minded, imperial, imposing, impressive, lavish, luxurious, magnanimous, magnific, majestic, noble, opulent, outstanding, palatial, plush, radiant, regal, resplendent, rich, royal, splendid, stately, striking, sublime, sumptuous, superb, superior, towering, transcendent
Of course, this is only ONE word that we use to describe our Lord and Savior.
He is without bounds. He is not able to be summed up in a neat box.
He is magnificent….
And He is MORE.
He is ALL.
God is magnificent; he can never be praised enough. There are no boundaries to his greatness. Generation after generation stands in awe of your work; each one tells stories of your mighty acts. Your beauty and splendor have everyone talking; I compose songs on your wonders. Your marvelous doings are headline news; I could write a book full of the details of your greatness. The fame of your goodness spreads across the country; your righteousness is on everyone’s lips. God is all mercy and grace – not quick to anger, is rich in love. God is good to one and all; everything he does is suffused with grace. Creation and creatures applaud you, God; your holy people bless you. They talk about the glories of your rule, they exclaim over your splendor, Letting the world know of your power for good, the lavish splendor of your kingdom. Your kingdom is a kingdom eternal; you never get voted out of office. God always does what he says, and is gracious in everything he does. Psalm 145: 3-13 The Message
