“‘Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you.”
This verse in Jeremiah is an awesome perspective. It’s a big “AHA” moment for Jeremiah. All of the sudden, and out of nowhere, he has this epiphany about who God is. He seems to begin to understand about God’s omnipotence.
I think, therein, lies a bigger question for us. Have you had an “AHA” moment about who God is and what He is capable of? For me it starts in Genesis. “In the beginning, God”. Just that statement is enough to start to ponder the Creator and to sit in awe and wonder of who God is.
Others had these moments as well: Moses, when the Red Sea parts; Noah, when the flood waters start to rise; David, when Goliath falls; Elijah, when fire falls from heaven; Daniel, when the lions mouths are shut; Job, when he receives a full lesson first-hand from God himself; Isaiah, when he encounters God; And the disciples, when they find that the tomb is empty. And many more!
Each person, in his or her own way, gets a glimpse of who God is. The very one who spoke Creation into existence and loved you and I enough to send his son to take our place on the cross and raised him from the dead so that we might also live. What did yours look like?
Lord God, Creator of heaven and earth, we stand in awe of who you are. We have heard of your mighty works and even had glimpses of them ourselves. We ask that you would reveal yourself to us even more! We pray that you will help us to lean on you and to understand that it’s through your power that we accomplish your will. In your name we pray, amen!
Stop. Put your phone away. Get away from ALL distractions for just 10 minutes. Don’t think about what you have to get done. Just sit and think about who God is. If you need help, start reading Job 38.
