Too Wonderful for Words

Psalm 145:5– “They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty— and I will meditate on your wonderful works.”

 

One of my favorite songs, growing up, was from an old movie I saw on a Saturday afternoon as I babysat for the neighbors.

Once I got the kiddos down for their naps, I turned on the television. I’ve long since forgotten who sang the song, but this young teenage girl swooned at the words, “You’re just too wonderful. Too wonderful for words.”

These words apply to human (and perhaps idealistic) love, but let’s see how they apply to our Lord and Savior.

Besides today’s verse in Psalms, other verses use synonyms for wonderful: marvelous, glorious, awesome—to describe Him:

Job 37:5– “God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding.”

Psalm 111:3– “Glorious and majestic are his deeds, and his righteousness endures forever.”

Psalm 47:2– “For the Lord Most High is awesome, the great King over all the earth.”

The Bible tells us that God is our “first love” worthy of our love and praise. So, as you worship Him today, let’s tell Him that He is marvelous, glorious, awesome, and “too wonderful for words.”
