Psalm 65:4-8 is about awe and wonder and God’s power.
Have a read: We shall be satisfied with the good things of your house… You answer us by giving us victory, and you do wonderful things to save us. You set the mountains in place by your strength, showing your mighty power. You calm the roar of the seas and the noise of the waves; you calm the uproar of the peoples. The whole world stands in awe of the great things that you have done.
Have you done any marvelling lately? The dictionary defines the word ‘marvel’ as
to be filled with wonder or astonishment
to become filled with surprise, wonder, or amazed curiosity
Have you been outside on a winter day and paid attention to the details around you? What an amazing world God made for us to explore: icicles, animal tracks, snow of various textures from powder to packing, trees with a variety of branching patterns and colours, migrating birds, and so much more. When we take the time to ‘marvel’, we are appreciating the beauty and detail in creation, developing our sense of wonder, which translates into thankfulness to God for his creative goodness. Take some time to marvel this week.
