Our God Is An Awesome God… Even When Our World Is Stupid

The news is depressing me today. It’s just the same stupid stuff done over and over again by the same stupid people who want nothing to do with truth or dignity or true beauty.

So I’m protesting by not writing about any of it this morning. Instead, I’m just going to post the lyrics to Rich Mullin’s “Awesome God” and leave it at that:

When He rolls up His sleeves, He ain't just putting on the ritz
(Our God is an awesome God)
There's thunder in His footsteps and lightning in His fists
(Our God is an awesome God)
And the Lord wasn't joking when He kicked 'em out of Eden
It wasn't for no reason that He shed His blood
His return is very close and so you better be believing that Our God is an awesome God

Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from heaven above
With wisdom, power, and love
Our God is an awesome God
Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from heaven above
With wisdom, power, and love
Our God is an awesome God

And when the sky was starless in the void of the night
(Our God is an awesome God)
He spoke into the darkness and created the light
(Our God is an awesome God)
The judgment and wrath He poured out on Sodom
The mercy and grace He gave us at the cross
I hope that we have not too quickly forgotten that
Our God is an awesome God

Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from heaven above
With wisdom, power, and love
Our God is an awesome God
(x5)

That’s the message I want to post today, and that’s the message I want to remember.

I’m just going to leave it at that.
