How easy it is to overlook the awesomeness of God.
We become accustomed to what He does and forget to give Him the praise and honor He so richly deserves. Whenever this happens, we need to turn to His Word and be reminded of who He is and what He does.
The Bible tells us that God never grows tired or weary (Isaiah 40:28b). In other words, we will never find Him sleeping or resting, and He is always attentive to our every need.
In fact, in Isaiah 43:19, God tells Israel that in the future He will do something new for them. And in Habakkuk 1:5b, He tells the people that He is doing something in their own day, something so amazing they wouldn’t believe even if He told them.
God is always awake.
We learn from passages like these, and others, that God is always awake and constantly doing things for His people. Verse five of the fifth chapter of Ezra opens our eyes to the truth that God is continually watching over us.
This thought is reiterated in II Chronicles 16:9a, which says, “For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him.” How comforting it is to know that God is watching over our every circumstance and is always there to help us through whatever situation we encounter.
Even more comfort…
Another comforting truth is found in (Exodus 15:11 NLT). “Who is like you among the gods, O Lord—glorious in holiness, awesome in splendor, performing great wonders?” God is constantly performing great wonders that we sometimes fail to see.
The miracle of salvation, for example, making us a completely new creation in Christ; the instantaneous healings, our protection from the enemy, the provision for our needs—these are just a few of the many wonders He performs every second of every day.
One Final Thought
God promises never to leave or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5) and reassures us in Romans 8:35 that nothing can separate us from His love in Christ Jesus our Lord. God is good, and He is always with us and looking out for our good. When we draw near to Him, He draws near to us.
