I am completely awed by the power of God. Today during my quiet time I read Jeremiah 5:22.
“I placed the sand as the boundary for the sea,
a perpetual barrier that it cannot pass;
though the waves toss, they cannot prevail;
though they roar, they cannot pass over it.”
It’s so amazing that most of the known and unknown world is covered in water, yet, the seas and oceans cannot overtake land — and that is only because God says it cannot pass over. If you’ve ever stood before the ocean, you know the overwhelming feeling of awe that I speak of. It’s amazing that with one word from God, the oceans stop in their tracks. If He wanted, we could all be consumed, but it’s only because of His great great love for the children of man [Proverbs 8:31] that we are not consumed [Lamentations 3:22]. “Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.” How great is our God.
