An Awesome God!

“By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and by the breath of his mouth all their host…For he spoke, and it came to be, he commanded, and it stood firm” (Psa. 33:6, 9).  “Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it” (Psa. 139:6).  “When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?” (Psa. 8:3-4).  The creative power of God is awesome, indeed.  It is beyond the capability of man to begin to understand it.  Even more awesome is the desire of the Almighty to redeem man from sin; yet, He is “…not wishing that any should perish, but that all shall reach repentance” (2 Pet. 3:9).  It was Dwight L. Moody who observed that God first came down to create, then through His Son He came to save.  To create, God had only to speak; to redeem, His Son had to suffer on a cross.  He made man by His breath; He saved man by the blood of Jesus.  “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!  How unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!” (Rom. 11:33).
