God truly is an awesome God. When we come into His presence we are filled with great wonder and reverence, because of His beauty, sublimity (excellence, grandeur, majesty),and power. There is none like God.

And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King,
The Lord of hosts.’ ”

And establish the work of our hands for us; Yes, establish the work of our hands.”

How excellent is Your name in all the earth,
Who have set Your glory above the heavens!”
God is full of power and strength. We are to submit to His authority and come under His control, and we are to praise His power, strength and ability. As we submit to God and His authority, He will fill us with His strength. Believers are to declare the power of God.
Psalm 145:10-12 NKJV
“All Your works shall praise You, O Lord,
And Your saints shall bless You.
They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom,
And talk of Your power,
To make known to the sons of men His mighty acts,
And the glorious majesty of His kingdom.”
Even nature, speaks of God’s power. All of creation (everything that was ever created) testifies of God’s great strength, authority and control.
