My cousin and I spent two days at the coast this week. We watched the waves, we listened to the ocean while we slept, and we contemplated the majesty of our Creator.
The ocean always reminds me there’s a greater reason why I exist, why I can trust, and why the impossible is not so impossible.
Because the God of all the earth created that.
“In six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them” (Exod. 20:11).“He made the earth by his power” (Jer. 10:12).“With God all things are possible” (Matt. 19:26).
How many of us have requests we bring to God daily—impossible requests we keep bringing to Him?
We bring our requests to Him because He’s the God of power.
He’s the LORD of hosts. The LORD of ALL the powerful, heavenly hosts.
We hope, we pray, we trust in a God of power.
And as the hymn writer reminds us:
“God’s great power guards every hour.” – Johann Franck
The world and all things in it.
Our hopes and cares and days and years.
The LORD of hosts guards it all.
The one important reason we can hope for the impossible.
"Earth and all its depths adore him,
Silent bow before Him."
-- Johann Franck
