Psalm 114 CVE The Lord Works Wonders
God brought his people
out of Egypt, that land with a strange language.
He made Judah his holy place
and ruled over Israel.
When the sea looked at God,
it ran away, and the Jordan River flowed upstream.
The mountains and the hills
skipped around like goats.
Ask the sea why it ran away
or ask the Jordan why it flowed upstream.
Ask the mountains and the hills
why they skipped like goats!
Earth, you will tremble,
when the Lord God of Jacob comes near,
because he turns solid rock
into flowing streams and pools of water.
God created all things in heaven and on earth. All of nature recognizes his power, authority, and control over the earth. Think about God’s greatness; think about God’s overwhelming glory. The only ones who really have trouble recognizing and accepting God’s sovereign control are human beings; we tend to pull back from his power because it frightens us. Fear not. Put things into perspective. If God is for you then who can be against you? Learn a lesson from nature.
Prayer: Lord, you are all powerful and I want you moving in my life and in my behalf. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
