How do you Measure Greatness?


“Great is the LORD! He is most worthy of praise! No one can measure his greatness.” (‭Psalms‬ ‭145‬:‭3‬ NLT)

When we mention to one another that so and so is great, we typically follow that statement with one specific reason for their greatness. It’s quantifiable greatness. There’s a limit to their greatness. It’s measurable.

Not so with God.

How exactly does one reduce God’s greatness to the point where it can be measured? We can’t. There’s no way for us to create an exhaustive list of the ways in which our God is great.

From the grand miracles to the unexplained surprises; from the depth of his love to the attention to the tiniest detail, God’s greatness is on display. Even since the creation of the world, all of God’s creation has proclaimed his greatness. No matter what’s been going on, there have always been those who continue to give voice to how great and wonderful our God really is.

Even when it seemed as though the entire world was against God, Noah and his family were found to be righteous and proclaim the greatness of God.

Despite being captured by the Babylonians Daniel and s few of his friends remained faithful to God and made sure that they continued to proclaim the greatness of God.

I would even venture to say that during the four hundred years prior to Jesus’ birth, when God was silent, there were those who couldn’t help but proclaim the greatness of God.

So, how will you join with the host of others in proclaiming the greatness of God? Perhaps you and your family could share stories around the dinner table tonight. Maybe you’ll respond to this post or simply update your FB status. No matter how your day unfolds, look for an opportunity to share with someone else about the greatness of God.
