SCRIPTURE: PSALMS 8:9 O LORD our Lord, how EXCELLENT (MAJESTIC) is thy name in all the earth! 1 CHRONICLES 29:11 Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and THE MAJESTY: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.
THOUGHT: There are several Hebrew words translated as MAJESTY or MAJESTIC in the Bible and sometimes these words are also translated as EXCELLENT, LOFTY, MIGHTY or GREAT, etc., depending on the context. MAJESTY points out the royalty of rulers, or the strength, value, and beauty of people and/or objects. When you consider the heavens, the landscape of a plain, or mountain range, or the breadth and depth of the sea you are contemplating the MAJESTY of God’s creation, including its extensiveness, greatness, beauty, value, etc. MAJESTY includes all of this and THE LORD GOD IS THE MAJESTIC ONE who placed MAJESTY in the earth. When you use MAJESTY in referring to God you are considering His power, wisdom, presence, creative ability, how much He means to you and much, much more. THE LORD GOD, YOUR GOD, IS THE MAJESTIC ONE.
PRAYER: Dear Heavenly Father and LORD GOD OF MAJESTY: Words do not adequately describe the greatness or the beauty of Your MAJESTY. Thinking of the heavens, the earth and the sea and all their functions gives me only a clue to the magnificence of Your MAJESTY, since You created all these things. You alone are worthy of all my praise and honor. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!
