‘O Lord GOD, You have only begun to show Your servant Your greatness and Your mighty hand. For what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do such works and mighty acts as Yours?’ Deuteronomy 3:24 ESV
It’s amazing to consider our God. From the jump in Genesis 1, He is breathtaking. Consider the Old Testament. I mean, when was the last time you spoke something into existence? Gave a woman in her nineties a baby? Spread a rainbow across the sky as a promise? When did the devil have to ask your permission for anything? Used the Nile to deliver a Hebrew baby to a princess? Told a man nations would rise from him? Orchestrate events so a boy, thrown in a pit, rises as the second most powerful man in Egypt? Shapes the heart of a king to accept his Jewish queen when she’s uninvited? Teaches men how to build a temple so you can dwell among them safely? Leads a nation around a wilderness for 40 years to teach dependence?
The New Testament packs just as much of a punch. We see Him send His son to die so humanity can be in relationship with Him. A touch of His coat results in healing a woman who believed. Models love to the Father and to the people. Continues to patiently explain to the Pharisees and Sadducees who struggle with understanding. Sends His betrayer to betray Him. Asks His Father to forgive us as we kill Him. Conquered death. Sees that the Good News spreads like wildfire through history. Pens a letter spanning time itself. Sits at the right hand of God. Reigns gloriously for eternity. The God of the Old Testament, the God of the New Testament, He is our God today. Take a moment to marvel at Him. He is ours and we are His! Praise Him, not just for His works of old, but also for the work He is doing today. He is worthy of every accolade.
Father, I mean, really? You are everything; there is none like You. Thank You for the honor of being able to know You. I love You so much! Amen.
