"Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize?...Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly;" 2 Cor 9:24-26

Truly Awesome Power

A moment ago, I stepped outside and witnessed one of the most amazing lightening displays I’ve seen in a long time. The lightening was flashing all around me. It was coming from behind the trees surrounding my house, silhouetting them with every flash. Some was flashing high up, lighting up the entire sky, showing the clouds and the magnificence up there. Others were flashing lower down, between the tree trunks and branches. It was unbelievably awesome!

As I stood out there, I was just overcome with the realization that my God has the power that controls this lightening. It is incredible power. Power that can destroy, that slashes through the air. And that is just a small glimpse of the greatness of God’s power. He is a consuming fire; a God to be feared. Yet, He used His power to come to earth, die on a cross, and rise again. The power of God that shatters the sky with lightening is the power of Jesus that burst the cords of death. That was a display hundreds of times more awesome than the lightening display I just witness.

That God, who flashes his lightening on the sky and burst the cords of death as He rises from the dead, is our God! That is an awesome thought. He loves us, and that is incomprehensible. Our God is an awesome God! Our Jesus is amazing! That power is available to us! I have just begun to see that power in my life.

Standing out there, watching the lightening. I was truly in awe at my Jesus. The only thing I could do was worship. Our God is powerful! Our Jesus is awesome! Our Lord has no limits! Worship Him!
