“Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea – the Lord on high is mighty.” – Psalm 93:4
More powerful than the roaring waters, with greater strength than the crashing waves; God alone, from upon His throne – the majestic power, indeed.
Mighty is defined as having superior power of strength; great in importance; exceptional.
Each of these merely scratch the surface as to who God is, and of what He is able to accomplish in His awesome power.
Our mighty God, Creator of all things, despite His infinite power and strength, longs to hold us close – as our Father and friend. He who can build up or destroy with but a word, wants to be in relationship with us!
He is a loving Father who is fiercely protective of His children, yet is tender and kind – ready to touch and heal our places of pain. He longs to lavish us with His love, and He delights in us, His children.
Regardless of our wreckage of the past, He welcomes us in the present, and provides us with a hope and a future as we choose to follow Him. As we abide in Him, the hope of heaven holds our hearts, and grants us peace in the presence of storms.
Our mighty God is worthy of our hearts, our hands, our hope, our worship and our prayers. He makes a way, when there seems to be no way. He is, where we are not.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that though You are mighty and majestic, You are also loving and kind. Teach us to understand both Your power and Your passion for people. Lead us to love like You, so that all may come to know You as our mighty Maker and faithful Father. Hold us close and keep us in the shadow of Your wings, we pray. Amen.
