Crossroads: Who Is the Lord?

Psalm 93

Your Story

Talk about a time when you felt God’s majesty. Where were you? How did you feel?

My Story and the Bible Story

I tend to feel God’s majesty most when I am in the midst of His creation. I feel awestruck when I stand next to the crashing waves of the ocean. When I look out at those waters, I am amazed at the beauty that God has created. I find myself feeling the same way when I stand at the top of a mountain. As I gaze out into the distance, I feel small. I realize what a small part I play in all of creation. And I remember that God is the One who created everything we see.

Read Psalm 93.

Who is the Lord? The Lord is full of majesty and strength. He established the world to be firm and secure. God has always been and will be forevermore. The seas lift their voices to God because He is mighty. He is mightier than the thunder of the waves crashing to shore. His statutes, the rules He has given us to live by, stand firm. The Lord is holy.

When you think about God, what characteristics come to mind? I think about God’s love first, and how it is never-ending. I think about how God loves us no matter what happens. And I think about His holiness. God is perfect, and we are not. And it is only because of Jesus that we can be in God’s presence. And yet, even though God is holy, even though He is perfect and we sin, He still wants to spend time with us. I think of how mighty God is, how much bigger and better God is than anything else in this world. And I think of God as Creator. I love seeing all the wonderful things God has created. Seeing a beautiful sunset reminds me that our God is a painter. Seeing the stars in the sky reminds me that God knows each of us by name because He knows each of them by name. Hearing the laughter of a child reminds me that our God loves joy.

Who is the Lord? He is Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer, and Friend. He is holy, He is mighty and perfect. We cannot comprehend His love. God is so much bigger than anything else in this world. He has been here since the beginning and will be with us until the end. Let us praise the Lord for who He is and for what He has done for us.

Discussion and Prayer

  1. Ask your children to share who God is for them. Ask them to talk about the names of God that are most important to them, and the characteristics they think about when they think of God.
  2. As a family, discuss ways that each of you can share God with others.
  3. Explore some of God’s names in the Bible. Choose one to use when you talk to God this week.
  4. Pray, thanking God for who He is and for how much He loves us.
