THEME: THINGS OF GOD
“Can you search out the deep things of God? Can you find out the limits of the Almighty? They are higher than heaven— what can you do? Deeper than Sheol— what can you know? Their measure is longer than the earth And broader than the sea.”
-The deep things of God are mighty and unsearchable. Since no one knows the path of the wind or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, we cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things (Ecc 11:5). These works demonstrate to us the greatness of God though not conclusively. Further, no one knows the Son except the Father and no one knows the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him (Mat 11:27). God is our Almighty Father and there is no other like Him. He has shared His nature of love with us and we are called to love Him and our neighbours as ourselves according to His divine purposes.
The things of God present a deep contrast from the things of men. They demonstrate the difference between godliness and godlessness. When Jesus revealed His passion, death and resurrection to His disciples, Peter took Him aside and began to rebuked Him. Jesus in-turn rebuked him saying “Get behind Me, Satan! For you are not mindful of the things of God but the things of men” (Mk 8:33). A godly person is thus deeply concerned about the things of God, but a godless person has no concern for the things of God, instead he is preoccupied with this world. Jesus reminds us to focus on things that build up His Kingdom through righteous living and doing good; demonstrating love. Jesus did not leave us orphaned but gave us the Holy Spirit to guide and help us in the things of God. Only the Holy Spirit knows the deep things of God for He searches all things and reveals them to those who are in the spirit, those who love God. Jesus said that, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.” As we begin this year and a new decade, God reminds us to keep His word and He will come to us and make His home in us. How comforting is it to know that God is in our hearts? Since nothing is impossible with God then; nothing with be impossible with us and whatever we ask in His name He will give us. God’s deep things include and are not limited to; His goodness, beauty, creation, mercy, grace, love, righteousness, blessings, joy, favor, protection, direction, peace, wisdom, salvation and future glory. As God’s children, we are called to inheritance through Christ and no eye has seen what the Lord has in store for us and our generations.
You are awesome in wonder and kindness, all generations praise You Oh Lord. With Your righteous hand and saving arm You have made us co-heirs with You Jesus, thank You for giving us and our descendants the gift of salvation. Through Your everlasting love we have realized pure and un-compromised faith in You, thank You for loving us Jesus. Grant us the fruit of love Holy Spirit so that we may love You and our neighbours as ourselves. Reveal unto us the gift of wisdom and grant unto us the right resources so that we may undertake all unique and innovative ideas that You have deposited into our hearts throughout this year and the years to come. Establish us in Your faith as we journey in Christianity and not loose sight of You Lord; even when challenges come. Help us Father to focus on the things above which yield everlasting life and not on the things below which are vanishing. Thank You Lord for the far that You brought us, thank You for where we are today and the far that You are taking us with our generations to come. You are same yesterday, today and forever, all glory, honor and praise belong to You Jesus; now and forever. Amen
