Summary: Faith, Trusting God
Our God Is Awesome!
Text; Jeremiah 32; 27 “Behold I am the LORD the GOD of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for me? “
A couple of weeks ago a friend of mine posted on his Facebook wall a testimony I’m about to share with you;
There was this Christian Soldier who willingly serves the Lord alongside his military career. He was so committed to his faith in Christ and expectedly in no distant time became an Object of disdain and mockery by his fellow soldiers including his garrison Commandant who saw this believer soldier preaching against their “usual” social practices as unacceptable. One fateful morning after the parade, the garrison commandant called out the believer solder, handed over a car key to him and commanded him to drive a car hitherto parked by the parade ground to the front of the Commandant office. The believer solder pleaded with his Commandant as he does not know how to drive.
Unknown to the believer soldier that the assignment was a plot to further ridicule and proves to him that his God is worthless. As it is customary in the military not to disobey the superior instruction, the believer soldier took the key from his commandant, marched to the car, starts the engine and drove it, parked it neatly in front of the commandant office.
When the brother returned to the parade ground; apparently to return the car key to the commandant, he saw his colleagues and commandant wailings and weeping. They all begged to know his God. Why? The Car believer soldier drove minutes ago had NO engine. Our God is awesome.
One of the things that give me pleasure and confidence as a believer is that; I serve God of assurance. The God who knew ahead of you; what your needs are even before asking Him. Every of my meditation on God’s personality has always been a spiritual delight and an indescribable revelations. Today I see Him as AWESOME! I mean very awesome.
How do I know this God is awesome?
In Genesis 18; 9-14; at the age of ninety when God affirms his promised unto Abraham’s wife Sarah to bear a son through a visiting Angel. Sarah herself doubted. Why? She was in her menopausal age. To her the prophesy contradicts the natural or scientific law of pro-creation. But when God is in any matter, natural and scientific stipulations are suspended. At advanced age of womanhood, how Sarah coped with Gestation period and delivery of Isaac remains a thing only God can do.
Also in Exodus 14; 10-16, We saw the account of the Israelites crossing the Red sea after God delivered them from Egyptian captivity. However, one mystery that was not accounted for in that story is; How do they walked across the dried sea depth. I am not a geo-scientist but my layman idea tells me that the distance from the Sea brim to its depth is not a stepping or leaping distance. In that if you jumped into this overwhelming pit vacated by water, you are not likely to survive it except you are trained in diving vocation. So how the Red sea bed was raised to become a pathway for children of God is a thing only our awesome God can do.
