God bless you the wonderful name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for if we see him, we’ve seen the Father (John 14:9).

Moses sang about the greatness of God in his song recorded in Deuteronomy 32. In it he says:

Deuteronomy 32:3-4:
Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God. He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.

In the same verse that Moses commanded the people to ascribe greatness to God, he told them why, “He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.” We ascribe greatness to God because it is His due. He expects us to; it is the reason why we exist. God said, “This people I have formed for myself; they shall show forth [declare] my praise” (Isaiah 43:21). David acknowledged how unsearchable God’s greatness was saying, “Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.” (Psalms 145:3). Although we will never know how great He really is, we still attribute greatness to Him. David extolled God’s greatness saying:

I Chronicles 29:11-13:
Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all. 12 Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all. 13 Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name.

All great men of God recognized and declared the greatness of God. Moses recognized His God was a God of truth. Isaiah called Him “God of judgment” (Isaiah 30:18). David called God both the “God of my righteousness” (Psalms 4:1) and “the God of my salvation” (Psalms 18:46).

In the New Testament, Stephen called Him “the God of glory” (Acts 7:2). Paul called Him both “the God of hope” and “the God of patience and consolation” (Romans 15:5 & 13) when he wrote to the persecuted believers in the great capital of the Roman Empire. When he wrote to the Corinthians, He was called “the God of all comfort” and “the God of love and peace” (II Corinthians 1:3 & 13:11). When he wrote to the Philippians He spoke of the “God of peace” (Philippians 4:9).

Peter called Him “the God of all grace” (I Peter 5:10), and the writer of Hebrews recognized Him as both “God the judge of all” and “the God of peace” (Hebrews 12:23 & 13:20). John writes “Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints” (Revelation 15:3).

Our God is, indeed, the God who is all in all to His people (I Corinthians 15:28). He is the God of truth and righteousness, of peace and love, of patience and comfort, of hope and grace, glory, and salvation. He is worthy of all praise. It only benefits us to recognize His greatness and speak of it without reservation.
