“He Marveled”

The Bible — especially in the Psalms — overflows with great awe at the wondrous works of a marvelous God.  Israel’s King David wrote:  “I will praise You, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works” (Psalm 9:10).

Psalms 72:18; 86:10; 105:2; 119:27;  and 145:5 declare that God does wondrous things and wondrous works.  Psalms 77:14; 89:5; 107:24; and 136:4 extol God’s great wonders in creation and in human history.  David looked at the heavens and was awe-struck that a God who created the vast expanse of the heavens could care at all for man, who is but made of dust (Psalm 8:34; 103:19).  How much more should men today — with all the powerful instruments we have devised to probe ever farther into the intricate details of our universe — stand in awe of God’s wondrous and marvelous works?
