Verse Of The Day : By his spirit he has garnished the heavens; his hand has formed the crooked serpent. Job 26:13
Thought of The Day : Only fools would claim ignorant of God’s greatness and goodness.
LISTEN : Are you ever aware of God’s greatness. The greatness of God is expressed in His unmatchable wisdom and power. By His wisdom and power, He created the heavens and the earth. The Bible says,
“The LORD is the one who by his power made the earth.
He is the one who by his wisdom established the world. And by his understanding he spread out the skies.“
Jeremiah 10:12 (NET).
The Almighty God is awesomely awesome! Only fools would claim ignorant of God’s greatness and goodness. Our verse of the day speaks of God’s glorious work in creation. The Bible says,
“By his spirit he has garnished the heavens; his hand has formed the crooked serpent.“
God by His breath, wisdom and power garnished the heavens. The fairness, clearness and the beauty of heavens are the hand work of God. Knowing how great God is, it’s hard to imagine the incredible experience that awaits us when we finally arrived at His home in heaven (1 Corinthians 2:9). When we look at the beautiful things of the earth, and gaze at the heavens, we can’t help but stand in awe of His greatness. The magnificent views of heaven – the night sky full of stars; the breathtaking beauty of dawn; the colourful rainbows, the moon that lightens the night; the moving planets and the whole of solar system are the expression of God’s greatness. Brethren, God is awesome, and the wise don’t raise their voices at God. The crooked serpent, the devil did, and God overturned his rebellion in heaven and threw him down. He deceived Eve and mankind, but God remedied the situation by the death of Christ on the cross. Therefore, as we acknowledge and celebrate God’s greatness, let’s also celebrate our salvation through Christ Jesus. Henceforth, stand in awe of God. Be wise!
What Should We Do With This Message?
1. Appreciate the creation of God and be grateful for everything.
2. Acknowledge the Lordship of Jesus Christ the Son of the only true and living God.
3. Anytime you gaze at the heavens, just worship God for the beauty of His name.
4. Always stand in awe of God and worship Him in truth and spirit.
Prayer : Dear Lord, it’s wonderful to imagine what it would look like when I arrived at your home in heaven. It would be glorious. Therefore, help me to continuously follow you for the rest of my life, amen!
A Word Of Blessing : Today, I speak on your life. You will not miss your purpose of living. Henceforth, receive grace to remain on track for the rest of your life, in Jesus ’ name, amen.
Reflection : God is awesomely awesome! Only fools would claim ignorant of God’s greatness and goodness.
Quote : Wise people don’t raise their voices at God. When the going gets tough, they are not mad at God; they worship, pray, trust and obey.
