“The highest study of man is God.”-{Biblical Illustrator}

The Scriptures declare God is “Awesome!” The Hebrew word, “yare” are your deeds!’” (v. 3a). The verb “yare” (awesome) means fear, awe, or reverence. It is sometimes used for one person fearing another (Genesis 32:7; Daniel 1:10) or being afraid in the face of battle (Deuteronomy 20:3, 8; Judges 7:3). But a person who fears God (in the sense of wanting to avoid God’s wrath) often finds that fear morphing into respect and reverence. The difference between fear and reverence is found in the relationship that the person has with God. The person who loves God and believes that God loves him/her will find that fear has been superceded by respect and reverence. In this verse, the psalmist thinks of God’s deeds as “yare” (fearsome, awesome), because they exhibit the power to create and to destroy––to reshape the world in which we live, and to reshape our lives.

While we know powerful people, they come and go. They hit and miss. We can see their clay feet. Not so with God. He was before the beginning, and will be after the end. Every discovery of science lays bare a small piece of God’s intricate creation, and inspires us to explore that creation in even greater detail. But however far we explore, we always find the potential for exploration expanding. Yes, God’s deeds are awe-inspiring. “-{Sermon writer.}
