Title: Our God is an Awesome God!
Text: Multi-texted

Introduction: Two outs, bottom of the ninth, bases loaded, three balls, two strikes on the hitter, losing by 3 runs. The batter approaches the plate. (What is the coach doing? Wringing his hands, pacing, sweat is coursing off his brow. CAN WE PULL THIS LAST MINUTE VICTORY OFF?

Ever feel that way about your life with God?
‒ My life is in shambles.
‒ My family has gone to the dogs.
‒ I canít see how Iím going to pass that final.
‒ I donít know about my future.
‒ We can almost visualize God in heaven in the throne room.
‒ Wringing His hands.
‒ Pacing back and forth.
‒ Sweat coursing off His brow.
‒ Asking the question: WILL THEY EVER PULL OUT A VICTORY FOR ME?

**We are going to learn together today that NOTHING could be further from the truth than the above scenario.

**Why? BECAUSE OUR GOD IS AN AWESOME GOD! SAY THAT WITH ME LIKE YOU MEAN IT!

Regardless of how one attempts to describe God, his efforts become woefully inadequate. That is because our God is an awesome God!

1. Why is God awesome?

A. He is CREATOR and SUSTAINOR.

1. (Psalms 33:6-9 NKJV) "By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth. {7} He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap; He lays up the deep in storehouses. {8} Let all the earth fear the LORD; Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him. {9} For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast."

1. Did you hear that? GOD created.
2. If there ever was a big bang, GOD caused it!
3. Life from nothing came from God
4. Letís proclaim it from every corner of the earth!

2. Not only did He create, but it works because He sustains it!

1. Talking about Jesus, the Hebrew writer proclaims in (Hebrews 1:3 NCV) "The Son reflects the glory of God and shows exactly what God is like. He holds everything together with his powerful word. When the Son made people clean from their sins, he sat down at the right side of God, the Great One in heaven."


2. Let all who say that there is no God understand that they could not have the air they breathe, or the gravity that holds themselves to this world, or even the ability to think, if it were not for the power of Godís glory!!

B. Not only is He Creator and Sustainor, but He KNOWS THE END FROM THE BEGINNING

1. God is never surprised! (Isaiah 48:12 NCV) ""People of Jacob, listen to me. People of Israel, I have called you to be my people. I am God; I am the beginning and the end."

1. God IS the beginning and the end.
2. (Isaiah 46:9-10 NCV) "Remember what happened long ago. Remember that I am God, and there is no other God. I am God, and there is no one like me. {10} From the beginning I told you what would happen in the end. A long time ago I told you things that have not yet
