And these are but the outer fringe of his works; how faint the whisper we hear of him! Who then can understand the thunder of his power? Job 26:14
Job describes some of God’s mighty power and the works of His hands. Telling how God suspends the earth in space, raises storms on the sea, hangs the clouds of water in the air, and other great works. These are just the edges of God’s awesome power. Job realizes that no one can fully understand His power.
The world looks at the natural things of this world as just things that happen. They try to explain how things happen by natural means, without any external controller. Science explains why there are storms on the earth, and how gravity keeps the earth in place in space. There is no room for belief in God, because all is natural, not supernatural.
Believers, however, know that it is God who has done these great things. It is by His great power that the earth and moon were created. It is by His great power that storms start and stop.
As a believer keeps in mind that God does all these things, he also remembers that this is just the beginning of His awesome power.
The part that many believers forget is that since God is so powerful, He is also in control of things when they seem to be out of control. This is those times of trouble and suffering. In reality no one can fully understand how God can be in control of everything when everything appears to be going wrong.
The question is often asked of why does God allow all the bad things to occur when He is supposed to be in control?
How can God be in control when things are going bad?
This is where you, as a believer, must trust God’s awesome power. You are not able to understand His power and abilities, other than God can do everything. God’s way of doing things is above your ways and thinking.
If God is great enough to hold all of the things on this earth and in space in place, do you not think that He is in control of the things in your life?
God’s power is awesome, so you must trust Him in every situation in your life.
I pray today that you will see the power of God; that you will know God is in control; that you will trust in God’s abilities; and that you will praise God in His power.
