Basking in Glory
I just love the mountains. A couple of days ago, Grandpa took me through the Wolf Creek Pass in Colorado, and it was like nothing I have ever seen before. It was so stunningly beautiful I just kept saying over and over, "Wow, everything is so beautiful here." I can't help but be amazed when I see God's glorious creation. When mountains surround me on every side, I start to feel a little small in insignificant. They are so big and great. Then I consider how great God is. How mighty and powerful He is. Psalm 36:6 says, "Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep: O Lord, thou preservest man and beast" God's righteousness is like the mountains. Greater and deeper than my own righteousness could ever be. His love reaches to heights and plummets to depths that I could never face.
Not only is God's righteousness greater than even mountains, but He was there before the mountains were even formed. Psalm 90:2 says "Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God." It's hard to imagine those mountains not existing, or to picture them crumbling away. God was God before there were mountains. Why, He created the mountains! And even when the mountains crumble away, He will still be God. My mind cannot fathom how incredible and awesome God is!
This is why I love mountains; they remind me of the greatness of my God!
