“Who among the gods is like you, Lord? Who is like you – majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders?” Exodus 15.11
What is your picture of God? As a Christian, you would probably want to say that your image of God reflects the description of God in the Bible. However this needs keeping alive and fresh, as too often we find ourselves reducing the God of the Bible to a smaller picture that fits in to our own experience of him, or a God that behaves as we expect him to behave.
This verse keeps the wonder of God alive for us and the more we dwell on it, the larger our image of God becomes. Over the next few days we will be looking at the three glorious phrases expressed within it, and through them seeking to enlarge our vision of God.
However, as a starting point it might be worth taking a moment to reflect on what is your expectation of God today? This is not a trick question and there are no right or wrong answers, so give it some thought – what do you expect to experience of God today? How do you expect to interact with him? In what ways do you expect to see his hand at work? How do you expect to grow?
