Serving our Father God and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit filled ministry since 1997!
We often sing the song,“Awesome.” We chant, “Our God is awesome, He can move mountains, keep me in the valley, hide me from the rain…,” but do we fully comprehend just how awesome our God truly is? One of the definitions for awesome is, “to inspire an overwhelming feeling of reverence, admiration, or fear.” We have reasons to be in awe of God, and according to Proverbs 9:10, the fear of the Lord (reverence) is the beginning of wisdom.
Let's look at a few examples of the awesomeness and greatness of our God:
I. Exodus 14: God protected the Israelites from their Egyptian enemies while cornered at the Red Sea. He parted the sea to allow them to pass through on dry land. Once they were safe, He caused the waters to return. The Egyptians who pursued them were drowned in the Red Sea. Sisters and brothers, He is the same God today. He can bring you out on the other side and drown that which was pursuing you. There is nothing too hard for our God.
He is AWESOME, He is MIGHTY and He is MAGNIFICENT!
II. John 6:16-22 and 11: Jesus defies nature by walking on water and resurrects Lazarus who has been dead for four days.
III. In Matthew 8: 23-27 Jesus Calms a Storm: While Jesus was asleep in a boat with His disciples, a fierce storm arose. Strong winds and waves began to strike against the boat. The Disciples, terrified, cried out to Jesus. He said, "Peace, be still," and both the wind and the waves obeyed Him. The question was asked, "What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the waves obey Him?” He is an Omnipotent God (all powerful) who is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all we can ever ask or think.
God is greater than any need any of us may ever have. He promised to supply all our needs in proportion to His riches in glory. (Philippians 4:19)
God is greater than any sickness that tries to invade our bodies. The Bible tells us that Jesus came doing good (Acts 10:38). He healed the sick, gave sight to the blind and made the lame to walk. He is Jehovah Raphe, the God who heals. Remember, the doctors treat, but only God can heal.
He is greater than any sin in our lives. The Word of God tells us that Jesus came to seek and to save that which was lost (Luke 19:10). If you trust in Him, He will wash ALL of your sins away, past, present and future.
His name is greater than any other name. Philippians 2:9-11 tells us that God the Father has exalted Jesus to the highest place and gave Him a name that is above every name and that at the name of Jesus EVERY knee shall bow and EVERY tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is LORD.
Sisters and brothers, there is No One Greater!
