Podcast #195: “How Great Thou Art” by Carrie Underwood

Play episode

I’m Michelle Nezat and I hope to inspire you to discover and meditate on God’s Word through the songs you’re listening to on the radio.

Let’s develop a sense of wonder, shall we? The famous hymn “How Great Thou Art” leads us to consider God with a sense of “awesome wonder.” I chose Carrie Underwood’s rendition to meditate on Psalm 145.

David sat in awesome wonder of God and gives us a host of truths to meditate on in just one Psalm.

In this episode I discuss:

  • Thinking about the WONDER of God speaking everything into existence
  • The WONDER of walking on a glacier
  • Slowing down to change the pace and perspective
  • No one can measure God’s greatness – Psalm 145:3
  • How amazing it is that an immeasurable, deep, unsearchable, and untraceable God has revealed Himself to us – Romans 11:33
  • God’s wonders are without number – Job 5:9
