The all-powerfulness of God is beyond the boundaries of man’s extreme imaginations. His strength and wisdom are incomparable and immeasurable. He made the heavens and the earth and all the things therein. In Psalm 86:8-10, it is written, Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord; neither are there any works like unto thy works. All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name. For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone. (KJV) How great our God is! Those who put their trust in Him are truly blessed.
The works of God are awe-inspiring. Though He is not visible to the eyes of men, His Word and works are undeniable proofs of His eternal power and existence.
Considering all the wonderful creations of the Almighty God, many people still don’t believe His existence and the impressive works of His hands because they themselves are victims of their own deceitful beliefs and reasoning. Through their viewpoint in life, they reveal before the Living God who they really are.
It is written in Psalm 14:1-5, The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD. There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous. (KJV) Through these verses, we could see two kinds of people: first, the unbelieving who say there is no God and are said to be foolish, corrupt and lovers of abominable works; and secondly, the godly people who are well-favored by the Lord.
God’s power and working are being enjoyed by those who truly trust His Word. As we ponder in our hearts how powerful our God is, we must also keep in mind that God wants to use His people in a considerable way so unbelievers may realize that God does not only make miracles, but He also displays His miraculous working through His people.
The repairing of the wall of Jerusalem during the days of Nehemiah was an undeniable working of God through His people. In Nehemiah 6:15-16, it is written, So the wall was finished in the twenty and fifth day of the month Elul, in fifty and two days. And it came to pass, that when all our enemies heard thereof, and all the heathen that were about us saw these things, they were much cast down in their own eyes: for they perceived that this work was wrought of our God. (KJV) These passages from the Bible show us that without God no great things could be accomplished by anyone; but through His mighty working in His people and through His people, even those who belittle them will surely perceive the wonderful works of God. That is exactly what happened during the repairing of the wall of Jerusalem.
As we study how God displayed His power through His people, may we also take a careful note of the “success-producing attitude” of the believers during Nehemiah’s administration.
