Scriptural Truth – God’s Works Are Amazing

Do you remember the last time something completely amazed you? Maybe it was a movie or a book about an amazing person or event. Maybe it was simply a love and an interest in a hobby. I would say that most of us have experienced this feeling of excitement. In Psalms 111, David is amazed at the “great works of the LORD”. God’s works aren’t just good, they’re great! Just like some things in life open up a sense of awe and wonder, so should God’s works. In fact, God’s great works are all around us in nature and are seen in the Bible. It is so sad that sometimes we lose our feelings of wonder in our walk with God. The glory of His works and His power lose their awesomeness and become normal to us and feel stagnate. This might mean that much of our delight in the Lord is fading out. Don’t let the works of God become like this in your life. As we read and study the Bible, let us never lose our sense of amazement. Every day as we drive by the same mountains and forests, instead of not noticing their beauty, we need to stop and look at them with a new wonder and amassment because God has created them so big and beautiful. Not only are we supposed to delight in the awesomeness of God’s works, but they really help us in our faith in God and our willingness and desire to be closer to Him. Take a look at Psalms 111:3-7. Notice what is said about the character of God. v 3. The Lord’s work is honorable and glorious and His righteousness endures forever, v 4. The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, v 5. The Lord is mindful of His covenant, v 7. The Lord is faithful, just, and trustworthy. These are all the things we learn about God and we learn by studying His word. This knowledge increases our faith and gives us a greater and deeper appreciation for what God has done in us, for us and around us. Rejoice and be glad that we serve such a loving and powerful God! What an amazing feeling, knowing God is all around us! This article is some thoughts of Cliff Fisher. Until next week this is the Scriptural Truth Tommy O’Kelley Minister Subligna Rd.
