Once upon a time, lava spewed from the crater below me. Red hot, liquid rock boiled out of the center of the earth and coursed down the south side of this cinder cone obliterating everything in it’s path. The molten ooze ruined ecosystems, changed the course of rivers and created lakes where desert once spread.
From where I stand, I can see the path the lava followed out of this cone and across the high desert, trees lining it’s path as though it were still a flowing river. Blue sky stretches out vast from horizon to horizon. It is 86 degrees at 5,200 feet, and I can see 360 degrees around me purple mountains bumpy on the skyline and snow capped peaks rising above the hazy silhouettes.
I can think of only one word as I survey from this vantage point.
The dictionary definition of majesty is a sovereign power, authority, or dignity—used in addressing or referring to reigning sovereigns and their consorts
It's more difficult once removed, or twice removed as we are surrounded by mountains of laundry and dishes, but his majesty never changes. He's the same yesterday, today and forever. Just as God's character includes majesty from Exodus to Revelation and beyond.
