A Rich Mullins song from 1988 says a lot. Here are the lyrics. Chorus
Our God is an awesome God He reigns from heaven above With wisdom pow'r and love
Our God is an awesome God Verse 1 When He rolls up His sleeves He ain't just puttin' on the ritz Our God is an awesome God There is thunder in His footsteps And lightning in His fists Our God is an awesome God And the Lord wasn't joking When He kicked 'em out of Eden It wasn't for no reason That He shed His blood His return is very close And so you'd better be believin' That our God is an awesome God
Verse 2 When the sky was starless In the void of the night Our God is an awesome God
He spoke into the darkness And created the light Our God is an awesome God Judgment and wrath He poured out on Sodom Mercy and grace He gave us at the cross I hope that we have not Too quickly forgotten. That our God is an awesome God
There is nothing too big for God to handle. AMEN AND AMEN. The only thing limiting God is our lack of belief,and our pride in believing we can handle all the situations of life ourselves. You are not going to be able to handle all of the things thrown at you by everyday life. You just cannot do it. So quit trying and turn to God for His help and for His Spirit to move. Jesus said in John 14 that we would do even greater things than He did when the Holy Spirit comes. Of those greater things we cannot even begin to handle any of them on our own, so give up and give in to this awesome God. Jesus himself said in Matthew 19:26 Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.” Of course, Jesus was giving the disciples a great lesson in what it takes to be saved, per the rich young ruler who came to him looking for eternal life, but looking from the wrong perspective. God can do all things and He will do all things but we need to realize that He is the only one who can. So we must turn to Him in all circumstances and ask Him to move. God loves us and wants to minister to us and give us His blessings, even though some may say He doesn't. Luke 12:32 “So don’t be afraid, little flock. For it gives your Father great happiness to give you the Kingdom.
We are the sheep of His pasture and His guidance and care are complete and real, so don't despair. God will come through. God still heals. God still supplies our needs. God still moves through the Holy Spirit. God is very involved with everything going on in our lives. We are His children and He is always watching, so turn to Him in all things and the impossible becomes very possible.
Our God is an awesome God. More than the words of a song. More than a story. Truth, real truth that meets the needs of His children.
