The power of His works

He has declared to His people the power of His works,
In giving them the heritage of the nations.
The works of His hands are verity and justice;
All His precepts are sure.
They stand fast forever and ever,
And are done in truth and uprightness.
He has sent redemption to His people;
He has commanded His covenant forever:
Holy and awesome is His name.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
A good understanding have all those who do His commandments.
His praise endures forever. – Psalm 111.6-10

God has declared to the people the power of His works.

This is one of the surest indications that God is who He says He is. He doesn’t just say who He is, He shows us who He is. The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament shows His handiworks.

God’s shows His power through any number of wonderful works. He created the marvels of nature all around us. He holds it all together. He made us in His image. He made us in a ‘fearful and wonderful’ manner. He allows our lungs to pump air and our hearts to beat.

I live in a beautiful country and all around me I can see some of those marvellous works in the beauty of His creation.

God shows Himself to men by the power of His works, but as mentioned recently the most powerful of His works is what He does in the lives of those who accept Him as saviour.

Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
