See His Greatness

‘O Lord God, You have begun to show Your servant Your greatness and Your strong hand; for what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do such works and mighty acts as Yours? — Deuteronomy 3:24

What a word of praise and awesome wonder when God reveals Himself to His surrendered servant. When we trust and rely on Jesus Christ with our fully surrendered lives, we see His greatness and strong hand in our lives. There is no doubt that God is alive and working among His people.

I believe there is no greater work or mighty act today than the reconciliation of us to God Himself. God is actively working in our lives to mold us into His perfect people. The transformation process, although tough, is a beautiful thing to behold. In ourselves it is usually seen in hindsight but watching it in others is so exhilarating and exciting. Let me share an example:

My future son-in-law and daughter found a wedding dress the other day for
their upcoming wedding on Saturday. They left the store with the security
tab still attached to the dress. My son-in-law tried to remove the tab that
has ink on the inside and of course the ink bled all over the dress. My
son-in-law is a baby christian – accepted the Lord as a child but never
experienced any walk. I have been praying for him for many years . . .
but back to the story. He returned the dress and got a new one but that
is not the best part of the story. This is the text I received from my
daughter when I asked what happened with the dress situation: “He got it.
Last large they had. . . he said he kept praying and when he found it he
was thanking Jesus over and over”.

I was rejoicing and thanking the Lord for this transformation experience. Thanking the Lord for His greatness. Who can do such works and mighty acts as these? My God and Him alone.

Thank God for His transforming work in the lives of His people. Something only He can accomplish.

Continually seeking Him,

Who Can You Trust?

For the Lord your God is the God of gods and the Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God who does not show partiality nor take a bribe. — Deuteronomy 10:17

Who can you trust? In life it is sometimes difficult to trust another person. Some people have great difficulty trusting anyone. Are there any attributes that stand out in a trustworthy person?

Well, there is One who can be trusted. He is the Creator of all from the smallest of creation to the outer limits of the universe. That is a person who knows all things — I can trust the God of gods. He is the Master, Boss, Commander, Ruler over all — the Lord of lords who rules with wisdom. That is someone I would trust to counsel me well.

Someone who shows no partiality would be honest with me and can be trusted to tell me the truth. A person who stands on good principles without wavering cannot be bribed. That is someone who can be trusted.

The Lord our God is great, mighty, and awesome. He can be trusted!

Continually seeking Him,
