Amazing God

And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, “Great and amazing are your deeds, O Lord God the Almighty!  Just and true are your ways, O King of the nations!”  (Revelation 15:3)

At precisely 4:10 last Thursday, I was amazed by something that happened.  It’s not particularly important what exactly amazed me… just that God, in His own, unmistakable and unpredictable way, broke through my routine and interrupted my expectations with something well beyond my ability to ask or comprehend.

God is incredible.
Unconventional.  Unhurried.  God.

To the extent that He does what I expect, in the time frame that I expect it… He ceases to be God.

A burning bush.
A jabbering donkey.
An unexplainable rainstorm.
A large and hungry fish.
An infant king.  A controversial life.  A brutal death.
Tongues of fire.
Mercy for the guilty.
Our God is astounding.

And in the middle of a scripted day God did what only God could do.  He broke through.  Arresting my spirit, assaulting my assumptions.

I will never exhaust His vast resources… never explain His infinite power… never understand His perfect timing… never extinguish His powerful love.

At 4:10…

Amazing God.
