Astonished at the Majesty of God.

From Luke 9:

38 And behold, a man from the crowd cried out, “Teacher, I beg you to look at my son, for he is my only child. 39 And behold, a spirit seizes him, and he suddenly cries out. It convulses him so that he foams at the mouth, and shatters him, and will hardly leave him. 40 And I begged your disciples to cast it out, but they could not.” 41 Jesus answered, “O faithless and twisted generation, how long am I to be with you and bear with you? Bring your son here.” 42 While he was coming, the demon threw him to the ground and convulsed him. But Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit and healed the boy, and gave him back to his father. 43 And all were astonished at the majesty of God.


When I am part of something exciting or significant, are people astonished by me or by the majesty of God?

Lord, increase my faith. Please help me not to steal praise or glory that belongs to you. Please let my life cause others to be astonished by your majesty.
