Why We Need To Focus On God’s Majesty


Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O Lord, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things. 1 Chronicles 29:11 

What do you think of when you hear the word, majesty?  Do you imagine a queen wearing a jewel encrusted crown?  Maybe you think of the darkest night sky, sprinkled with trillions of sparkly stars.  Majesty implies impressive beauty, dignity and power.

In our technologically advanced world, we often relegate God to an accessory Who makes our lives better.  We’ve we lost sight of God’s majesty.  More than 50 years ago A.W. Tozer wrote, “With our loss of the sense of majesty has come the further loss of religious awe and consciousness of the divine Presence.  We have lost our spirit of worship and our ability to withdraw inwardly to meet God in adoring silence.”[1] Focusing on God’s majesty reminds us that He is God and we are not!

Descriptions of God’s majesty can be found throughout Scripture.  “Around God is awesome majesty.” (Job 37:22) He is “clothed with splendor and majesty.” (Psalm 104:1) His right hand is “majestic in power.” (Exodus 15:6) “How majestic is [His] name in all the earth.” (Psalm 8:9) “The voice of the Lord is majestic.” (Psalm 29:4)

Psalm 8 leads us to declare: “Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!”  When we pair a high view of God, with His sacrificial, unending love for us, we’ll find ourselves incapable of anything but responding in worship.
