How Artistic and Musical God Is!

…teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. —Colossians 3:16

I remember as a young Christian when I got my first awful, wonderful, entrancing vision of God. I was in West Virginia in the woods sitting on a log reading the Scriptures….

I got up and wandered away to have prayer by myself. I had been reading one of the driest passages imaginable from the Scriptures where Israel came out of Egypt and God arranged them into…a diamond-shaped moving city with a flame of fire in the middle giving light.

Suddenly it broke over me; God is a geometrician, He’s an artist! When He laid out that city He laid it out skillfully…and it suddenly swept over me like a wave of the sea: how beautiful God is and how artistic and how poetic and how musical, and I worshiped God there under that tree all by myself. You know after that I began to love the old hymns and I have been a lover of the great hymns ever since. WMJ023-024

Holy Father, Holy Son, Holy Spirit

Three we name Thee;

Though in essence only one,

Undivided God we claim Thee,

And adoring bend the knee

While we sing our praise to Thee. HCL006

Tozer on the Holy Spirit.
