God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways;
He does great things beyond our understanding.
He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth,’
and to the rain shower, ‘Be a mighty downpour.’
Job 37:5-6 (NIV)
“…Are you listening?
Have you noticed all this?
Stop in your tracks!
Take in God’s miracle-wonders!
Do you have any idea how God does it all, how He makes bright lightning from dark storms, how He piles up the cumulus clouds—all these miracle-wonders of a perfect Mind?” Job 37:14-16 (MSG)
Nothing can compare to God. By spending time observing the majestic scenes and intricate details of God’s creation, we are reminded of His awesome power in every aspect of our lives. Life always creates more questions than we have answers, and we must continually turn to Our Heavenly Father for answers, guidance and fresh insights. When He speaks, we must be ready to hear His message.
Take a moment to “stop in your tracks,” find a quiet place and listen to the marvelous voice of God.
Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens,
Your faithfulness to the skies.
Your righteousness is like the highest mountains,
Your justice like the ocean depths…
Psalm 36:5-6b (NIV)
Take a moment and meditate on the glorious attributes of our Heavenly Father. Let the truth of God’s character sink into the crevasses of your mind and penetrate the depths of your heart. Press the “pause button” on the busyness of your day, and simply reflect on His divine nature.
- God’s unfailing love for you is everlasting; it is as vast as the heavens. He has loved you before the beginning of time, and will love you into eternity. He is the God of all Comfort who is kind and compassionate.
- The Lord’s perfect faithfulness is forever; He is trustworthy, and His Word is reliable and true. He always keeps His promises.
- God’s righteousness is as majestic as the highest mountain peaks. He is holy and pure.
- The expanse of the Lord’s justice and fairness is comparable to the deepest depths of the ocean.
Even though we could never come close in comparison to the divine nature of our Heavenly Father, God has bridged the gap between our imperfection and His holy perfection. Because of His grace, mercy and eternal love for us, He gave us His Son as an unblemished sacrifice for our wrongdoings, so that we may live with Him forever in Heaven. Jesus is the Righteousness of God. If we simply believe in Jesus, we are covered in His righteousness and adopted into His kingdom as children of God. The Lord longs for you to spend eternity with Him, and He offers you the free gift of everlasting life through His son Jesus Christ. That’s a promise that you can hold onto for all of eternity.
…“I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. Jeremiah 31:3a
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
“And He passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, ‘The Lord, The Lord, compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands and forgiving wickedness and rebellion and sin.'” Exodus 34: 6 – 7
