    Reblogged this on The Vine Vigil and commented:
    God IS awesome, and gracious beyond our understanding.

    Psalm 8
    8 O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.

    2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.

    3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;

    4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

    5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

    6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:

    7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;

    8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.

    9 O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

    God can meet his own needs, but in order to meet what he wanted, it was necessary to create some rebellious people. He knew what he was in for beforehand, so why create us anyway? Let’s put that in the category of “for a very important reason beyond human understanding.” But it might have something to do with the descriptions from Isaiah and Revelation, God has people and angels surrounding him saying “Holy Holy Holy.”

    Not only that, he created a vast universe as a testament to his limitless imagination and power – but also as a work that sings his praise. Does he create something for no purpose? No. Will we always understand the purpose or reasoning for God’s plans and actions? Certainly not! So it should humble us that we are made – or needed – for a purpose even if we don’t understand what or why.

    God also builds within us different personalities – some of us with too much pride we are meant to overcome, some of us with too much meekness we are meant to overcome, most somewhere in-between. We should strive to be complete, healthy, sound, and at peace with ourselves. We should not try to one-up each other in a contest of who can be the most meek or unassuming. What Christians should look for is balance, not one extreme or the other.
