Great And Marvelous

From Revelation chapter 15:

3: And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.

4: Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.

Ron Hamilton wrote a song based on these verses. It is quickly becoming one of my favorites. For the last few weeks our church has been practicing for the Christmas program, and this song is a part of it. The more I hear the song, it gives me more of an understanding of how great God truly is.

His ways are so much higher than ours. His thoughts are incomprehensible to us.

When we’re overwhelmed by all that’s going on around us, or when the task God has given us seems unachievable, God knows. Not only does He know, but He understands. The great thing is, it doesn’t stop there. He provides strength, mercy and grace for us to keep going.

Another thing that’s great about how God works is that when things seem to be just falling apart for us, He’s still in control of it all, and is working it for our good.

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. -Romans 8:28

Just remember, God’s ways are just and true. His works are great and marvelous. When He has His way, He will shine. It’s up to us whether or not we’ll allow Him to shine through us. His ways are so much higher than ours. Will we let Him work through us? Will we let Him work in us?
