OUR THEME FOR 2018
LOOKING TO THE GREATNESS OF GOD – 2
Today’s reading: Isaiah 40:25-31
Our greatness stems from the greatness of our God.
are made in the image and likeness of God.
We are God’s children.
We are brothers and servants of Jesus our Lord and Master.
We are sent to do God’s divine work, to be His light
to the world.
We are empowered by God’s Spirit.
We are called to holiness and perfection, just like God.
We are destined for eternal life with God in heaven.
How great is our God?
There is none like Him. “To whom can you liken me
as an equal? says the Holy One.” (v.25).
He is the awesome Creator of the whole universe. “Lift
up your eyes on high and see who created these: He leads
out their army and numbers them, calling them all by name.”
He sustains the whole universe, which is mindboggling
in its immensity and complexity, but which is in perfect
harmony. There may be 10 trillion galaxies in the universe,
with each one, like our Milky Way, possibly having 100
billion stars, and even now this universe continues to
expand. “By his great might and the strength of
his power not one of them is missing!” (v.26b).
He is all-powerful and all-wise. “He does not faint
or grow weary, and his knowledge is beyond scrutiny.”
Now here is the awesome truth: God has destined us for greatness.
The Almighty God takes weak human beings and enables them
by His grace and power to become like Him and to do His divine
work. “He gives power to the faint, abundant strength
to the weak.” (v.29). We just have to put our faith
in Him, trust Him with all of our being, and allow Him to
form and mold us according to His will. “They that hope
in the Lord will renew their strength, they will soar on eagles’
must know and keep reminding ourselves of our destiny, to
be great in Christ. This will help us to endure and persevere.
“They will run and not grow weary, walk and not grow
faint.” (v.31b). Then we will be able to accomplish
God’s will for our lives, and become powerful instruments
for His work in our world.
