O Lord, I will honor and praise your name, for you are my God. You do such wonderful things! You planned them long ago, and now you have accomplished them.
You do such wonderful things! This is why I choose to believe in trust in God and have a relationship with him through his Son, Jesus - HE’S WONDERFUL! Many people are too skeptical to enter such an endeavor because there are many unknown variables in this arrangement. But the constant is constant! God does WONDERFUL things. No speculation. No debate. Can’t be denied. God does wonderful things!
James 1:17 says that every good and perfect gift comes from God. Every single one. When people blame their finances, our government, or cancer on God they are quickly forgetting that we have an Enemy, and he’s the one who wants to steal, kill, and destroy.
Jesus defines our Enemy’s purpose in exactly that way in John 10:10, and Jesus goes on to say in the same verse that Jesus’ purpose is to give (us) a rich and satisfying life. Those are two big extremes, aren’t they? One good, one bad. One positive, one negative. And the bad and the negative is NOT associated with God at all.
You do such wonderful things!
And the wonderful things are exactly just this: When the Enemy interferes in my life via other people’s free choices that affect me, unstable economic and political situations, germs and disease, etc - God shields me, covers me, makes miracles for me out of someone else’s mistakes. That’s wonderful.
Romans 8:28 confirms: In all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For example, God provides when hard economic times hit. God protects during political panic. God sustains us during our illnesses. God changes our heart about hard to love people. These are all good things. These things cultivate a rich and satisfying life regardless of my external circumstances. He does do such wonderful things!
I do not mind being reminded every day of your true attributes. You are good and faithful and do wonderful things, and you are not the one pouring out disaster and rubbing our faces in it. The disasters need to attributed to the Enemy. And you are more powerful than he and work even the worst of his messes out for good for the ones who love and trust you. That is amazing and wonderful and I am so incredibly thankful. I love you and praise you in Jesus’ name, amen.
