July 28 Devotion:The Unexplainable Workings of God


Isaiah 42:5-8 Thus saith God the Lord , he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:

[6] I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;

[7] To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

[8] I am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

What a passage of scripture we have for our text today. Just to know that this same God who has this kind of mighty power and no limit to HIS strength; is the same God and Lord who gave HIMSELF for me, loves me, and lives inside of me! This my friend does something in my soul and time and time again brings me to a humble place to worship and praise HIS Holy Name! When we catch even the slightest glimpse of God’s creation, we are immediately humbled when confronted with the unlimited resources of the Creator. When God sets a mountain in place HE makes it so impregnable and majestic that no man can weigh it, move it, measure it or conquer it. When HE reaches HIS hand down to carve out a hollow to pour in the waters of the ocean, HE makes it so deep that no one can plummet the depths of it. Only God could design an array of spectacular flowers and scatter them upon the fields and mountain sides that when our natural eye beholds them, we know down in our very being that it is the supernatural work of someone much bigger than man. God put an expanse so vast in the heavens that the galaxies and stars get lost in the deepness of it.  God’s ways are always a marvel because there is no limitation upon them and no one can explain them let alone contain the blessings that come forth from them.  What research or team of the most brilliant minds the world has ever known could ever give dimension to God’s makings?  There are NONE!!!

My Christian friend, it is all I can do but shout when I think of God’s endless supply of love, goodness, grace, power and beauty! Hallelujah! Even in grace and mercy, God removed all the boundaries so it will never run dry and will be eternally immeasurable. When God sets out to do a thing you can know it’s going to be grand and unexplainable.  Yet, even in the might and strength of the workings of God, HE takes the time and tenderness to lean down into the everyday moments in the life of HIS children. God’s love is the grandest of all and yet HE has declared and reserved it for us. How do you explain that?  Who could ever be able to comprehend the depths and limitless being of our God?  I believe God wanted us to wonder in all that HE is, yet have the ability of heart, soul, and mind to be intimately acquainted with HIM without having to explain HIM. This is truly one of the most glorious truths displayed for us in the realm of creation and HE did it all for you and for me!

If you tried to explain HIM…what would you say of God to your children and your children’s children? Today, if you were asked to…how would you describe God to the world around you?  What will your children, grandchildren, family, friends, co-workers etc., learn of God from your faith?  What is your faith and walk with Jesus telling the world around you?  Whether you realize it or not, your faith will speak something of our Savior and Creator. The size of your faith will dictate the size of your God to your generation and the generation to come. It’s my prayer today that your faith will be immeasurable just as HIS workings are to us. May it be your hearts’ desire to set your faith out to be boundless, unstoppable, and unfailing.
