There is so much to discover about God. Every revelation is like a new puzzle piece waiting for us to find where it fits, how it fits, how it builds the underlying picture. [Psalm 139:5-6] says,
“You have hedged me in behind and before, and laid Your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain it.”
In one sense, the knowledge of God is so wonderful, we cannot humanly grasp it. Yet at the same time, it is God who places His hand on us so that we might see Him wherever we look.
When I think about discovery, I think about the joy it brings and the excitement that causes me to share it. Learning how to work my camera, learning to use a new animation tool, creating some art; in all of this, I have discovered something new. It is a new skill, a new way of doing things, a new image. I’m excited to put those skills into practice, to demonstrate them, to share the beauty of a new artwork with others. The Psalms show us the wonder that comes with the revelation of God.

There is the joy of seeing God
[Psalm 9:1-2] – “I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvellous works. I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.”
The wonder of His greatness that is beyond our human understanding
[Psalm 71:15] – “My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness and Your salvation all the day, for I do not know their limits.”
The life-changing direction given by His revelation
[Psalm 119:45-47] – “And I will walk at liberty, for I seek Your precepts. I will speak of Your testimonies before kings, and will not be ashamed. And I will delight myself in Your commandments, which I love.”

When we have revelation, it gives us joy, it shows us the greatness of God, changes our lives, and inspires us to share the good news with all those around us. Lord Jesus, give me revelation of your nature every day, that I might live my life in constant awe of You.
