The Majesty of God | How Do You See God?

The majesty of God is manifested in His royal power, sovereignty, authority, and supremacy. How do you see God? How you see Him impacts how you see yourself, others, and the world.

 

Many think of God as a distant deity or a cosmic Santa. We put Him in a box and think He isn’t involved in our daily lives, or we “put on our best behavior,” believing this will impress Him enough that we can get what we ask for the next time we come to Him in prayer. This is not the God of the Bible. God’s ways are higher than ours. And He challenges us daily to start seeing Him, ourselves, others, and the world through His eyes.

 


 

3 Bible Verses about the Majesty of God

The majesty of God is revealed in the Bible. His greatness, power, and splendor are described and celebrated in verses such as…

“Bless the Lord, O my soul! O Lord my God, You are very great: You are clothed with honor and majesty, Who cover Yourself with light as with a garment, Who stretch out the heavens like a curtain.”

“Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand, measured heaven with a span and calculated the dust of the earth in a measure? Weighed the mountains in scales and the hills in a balance?”

From these verses, do you see God’s majesty? This blog will explore more of His attributes, such as…

  • Eternality

  • Authority

  • Victory

Throughout the Bible, God invites us to see Him as He truly is, shattering any box we have put Him in due to our experiences or what we’ve been told. This can’t be said enough: We must have an accurate view of God if we want an accurate picture of ourselves, others, and the world

 

 

How You See God…

Your view of God will never be apparent until you see Him biblically. God has preserved His Word so that you can know and see Him, which is tied to our purpose in life. He is not a God of confusion but of clarity. You need a biblical vision of who God is so you can accurately see things the way they are meant to be seen.

Seeing the Majesty of God

In the book of Daniel, specifically chapter 7, you see God through the eyes of the prophet. Daniel describes God as a majestic King given dominion, glory, and an everlasting kingdom. Do you see God like Daniel?

  • Ruling on His throne
  • Being pure and righteous
  • Being worthy of all praise
  • Having the authority to release judgment
  • Being “One like the Son of Man”
  • Coming with the clouds of heaven
  • Being an everlasting King

 


 

Seeing God as Eternal

Daniel 7:9 says:

“I watched till thrones were put in place, and the Ancient of Days was seated; His garment was white as snow, and the hair of His head was like pure wool.”

“The Ancient of Days,” or Atiq Yomin in Hebrew, is a name given to God that describes His eternal character. The passage describes God as having a garment of white and hair as pure as wool. The Ancient of Days is a term used to describe God’s ageless nature and timeless existence. 

 

Colossians 1:16-17 describes Jesus:

“For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.”

 

Jesus—God—was before all things and created all things. Revelation 22:13 says He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. Can you see the majesty of God’s eternal nature?

 


 

Seeing God as the Ultimate Authority

Daniel 7:9 describes God sitting on a throne of fiery flames. This depicts His authority to judge. And God is a just judge, separating the righteous from the unrighteous (Psalm 18:20-27). Flowing from God’s throne is a fiery stream ready to judge what stands before Him.

 

“A thousand thousands” minister to Him because He is worthy of all praise. The “thousand thousands” are angelic beings and humanity, a multitude standing before Him serving and worshiping, demonstrating His majestic splendor.

 

In Matthew 28:18, Jesus said, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.” Jesus is speaking of the Great Commission. He has the authority to command us to “go and make disciples of all nations.” He also reminds us that He is with us till the end of the age. Can you see the majesty of God’s authority?

 


 

Seeing God as Victorious

Daniel 7:13 describes “One like the Son of Man”—Jesus, given all dominion, glory, and an everlasting kingdom that will not be destroyed or passed away.

 

This description follows the passage that describes how the “beast,” the anti-Christ, was slain, and his dominion was taken away. His pompous words will be cut off and destroyed so that he will no longer deceive humanity with his lies and blaspheme God. 

 

Jesus will usher in the Millennium Kingdom, but His victory and reign will go beyond the 1,000 years—it will last into eternity. We know how the story ends. Jesus is victorious! Can you see the majesty of Jesus’ victory?
