Worthy, He Alone is Worthy!

Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God, the Almighty; Righteous and true are Your ways, King of the nations! Who will not fear You, Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are holy; For all the nations will come and worship before You, For Your righteous acts have been revealed. Revelation 15:3-4

John writes Revelation from the island of Patmos after being banished from his homeland. We may not understand exactly why certain things happen in our life. However, the good news is--drum roll, please-- as a child of God we are able to declare great and marvelous are Your works, simply because we know the God we serve will not and cannot fail. EVER!

Paul tells us in Philippians 2:14 to do ALL things without complaining or arguments. WHAT? Most of us have not reached the level in our relationship with Jesus to where we fully walk out that commandment. Me included! Now is the season for us to go deeper in our relationship with the Lord.

John, in the midst of all the storms and trials of his life, had enough peace and comfort within himself to understand you can be both in the center of God’s will, and still be facing a storm. Storms of life threaten our peace, comfort, and joy, and often bring about fear, doubt, and hopelessness.

Maybe, the storms of life are part of God’s sanctification plan, revealing your heart, and growing you into His image. Do not let the difficult storms become bigger than the promises of Jesus. He promises to be with you through every storm in your life. Allow the storms of life to propel you to trust God as your Protector and Liberator. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you. Isaiah 43:2

When facing a challenging situation, your situation should fear what God is about to do in and through it. He will exalt you; God’s name will be uplifted and esteemed. Be brave, keep moving forward, continue to walk this road, offering up praises instead of complaints, and singing the storms of life are washin’ me away.

Today, when you feel like you are between a rock and a hard place examine the marvelous works of our God. When you feel like giving up or throwing in the towel, and singing the storms of life are washin' me away, turn to the workmanship that God has done and is doing in your life knowing you can draw inspiration and motivation from these things.

We serve a God that has done great things and is doing great things. Even when we feel like life isn’t fair, we can be comforted in knowing “Righteous and true are Your ways, King of the nations.” God has a plan, we may not understand it now, we may not understand it tomorrow; however, we can trust it because of the works that He has already done in our lives.

His great works are clothing us in His image; they are giving us a sound mind, preparing us for the day and even allowing us to wake up this morning. God’s great works are giving us a place to lay your head at night, a job to go to in the morning and a means to put food on the table. I don’t know about you, but I have found myself looking at situations and seeing that things didn’t add up in my mind; however, I was able and am able to come out of every situation and claim the victory. This isn’t done by my hands or my trying hard enough, but by the “Great and marvelous” works of God.

Knowing and understanding what God has done and is doing puts us in a position to cry out to Him with thanksgiving. We are able to glorify His name, we can magnify the name of the Lord no matter what comes our way, we can sing His praises no matter how much rain is in my forecast. Sure beats singing the storms of life are washin' me away.

We can exalt Him before men because we see His great works, we feel His presence and we know He has a plan. God has a plan to prosper and not harm us, a plan to give us hope and a future. God’s plan will be fulfilled and it isn’t to harm you but to mold you and prepare you for bigger and better things.

The choice is ours; sing His praises or sing the storms of life are washin’ me away.

As for me and my house – we will lift our voice and sing, worthy, You alone are worthy!

Victorious by His Grace!
