Zach and I sat in the living room, completely blown away at what the Lord had done. We were watching “Blue Planet” on Animal Planet. The show explained how, because of new technology, we are going deeper than we ever have before in the ocean – 7 miles under earth! In fact, at these new depths, only 1% of it has been seen. In just this 1%, they have been finding ten new types of animals…per day! What type of mind blowing God is He! These creatures of existed for thousands of years, hidden beneath dark, deep waters, just waiting for us to discover them.
Job had never seen these types of things, yet he describes the incredible works of God that he could see:
“He spreads out the northern skies, over empty space; he suspends the earth over nothing. He wraps up the waters in his clouds, yet the clouds do not burst under their weight. He covers the face of the full moon, spreading his clouds over it. He marks out the horizon on the face of the waters for a boundary between light and darkness. The pillars of the heavens quake, aghast at his rebuke. By his power he churned up the sea…By his breath the skies became fair; his hand pierced the gliding serpent. And these are but the outer fringe of his works; how faint the whisper we hear of him! who then can understand the thunder of his power?” Job 26: 7 – 14
Who can understand that type of power? That is the type of power that lives in you today! As we sing in church, “The same power that conquered the grave lives in me!” May His power bring you strength and hope today for the areas in your life where you need His power!
