Perhaps you know the scripture or have heard, and perhaps sing along with the song that declares the greatness of our God. But, have you considered or meditated on the vastness of this truth? In Psalm 77:13, the Hebrew word for "great" is gadowl (H1419)*, meaning large in magnitude and intent; great in intensity, distinguished, exceeding, mighty, great in strength and action. The greatness of God is beyond scope of human comparison or characterization; our savviest, most clever attempts to detail, define, or describe the greatness God will always fall short of coming close to the purest expression of who He is. God's word is the only source of which we can rely.
So, how great is our God?

…So great that he takes us from glory to glory, gradually transforming us into his image and likeness (2Corinthians 3:18)
