David Witnessed God’s Majesty
Synopsis Psalms 28:5-30:12 9/16/2021
Majesty is the experience of something so awesome in stateliness that it leaves and impression. So, as King David thought about it, he observed how God is the very essence of majesty.
And everything is right to honor God’s glory. He found this in the metaphor of the voice of God. From God’s voice proceeded his powerful majesty. In other words, when God speaks, His words change everything. And every sensible person rightly proclaims God’s glory.
Likewise, David praised God for His wisdom. And he thanked God for delivering him from his enemies.
David even acknowledged that he sometimes grew complacent. And he recognized that his distress actually brought him back to his senses. Distress caused him to return to God. And whenever he returned, God healed his circumstances.
David Witnesses Majesty
King David witnessed God’s majesty. It rightly affected. And so, in words that almost literally formed western culture, he wrote about.
Witness to Majesty
Majesty is about experience. Experiencing the majesty of God means to be affected by His awesome power, and wisdom and state.
Now God is both Creator and my Savior. And, as the Scriptures point out, all of creation points to his awesome power and majesty.
So, how is it that I can see the works of God but not experience His majesty?
“We did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we had been eyewitnesses of his majesty.” 2Peter 1:16
