Incomprehensible Awe

When I look at the works of men, I am overwhelmed with awe.




Beautiful artwork. Soul-stirring music. A well written book

It is too much for my mind to conceive.

Yet somehow, all these things were conceived of by the minds of men.

If I cannot comprehend the immensity of these works of the mind of men, how can I begin to comprehend, to conceive the mind of God?

For He not only comprehends the minds that conceived these works which I find so awe-inspiring and incomprehensible–He conceived the very minds that were then capable of conceiving such incomprehensible (to me) works.

Thus does my awe at man’s creations put me even more in awe of man’s Creator.

“When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit him?
For You have made him a little lower than the angels,
And You have crowned him with glory and honor.”
~Psalm 8:3-5

  1. Great post! We enjoy watching the Bethlehem Star each year at Christmas time. It really points to what an awesome creater He is! If you haven’t seen it I encourage you to check it out sometime.

  2. I agree. As great as the works on man are, they are only conceived because of the God who gave them the brains and ideas and abilities they have. “All things come of thee — of thine own have we given thee.”
