In the invisible world, Satan stands to accuse us day and night. But, praise God, Jesus also stands to defend us 24 hours a day. Romans 8 assures us of this marvelous truth!
If we could see the invisible world, we'd be surprised about the amount of activity going on around us all the time. Angels are out there and though they do not participate in our redemption, believers can trust that angels are on our side.
Where we go when we are in trouble tells us a lot about who we are. When Saul was in trouble, he went to a witch. Others might turn to alcoholism, consumerism, or workaholism. When you are in a tight place, where and to whom do you turn?
Jacob met God in the wasteland. What wasteland are you experiencing today? No matter what it is, you can rest assured that God will meet you there.
Did you know that the invisible world is just as real as the visible? The apostle Paul says that our afflictions are in this world, but they are "working for us an eternal weight of glory."
We often make resolutions at the start of the new year. What if we committed to one of the easiest resolutions? To simply pray for God’s glory to be known in our lives every morning before we get out of bed.
As we conclude our study on the attributes of God, think about this: the God who created the stars and inhabits eternity is concerned with your wounds and healing. This truth should bring us to our knees in praise!
"He determines the number of the stars; he gives to all of them their names. Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure."
- Psalm 147:4–5
The best is yet to come. Do you believe that through God's unsearchable riches, you can overcome?
"To preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God, who created all things."
- Ephesians 3:8b–9
Have you ever realized that God doesn't think like you? His ways are different than our ways and His thoughts are different than our thoughts, and this truth should lead us to worship.
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts."
- Isaiah 55:8–9
In acceptance of God's will, there is peace. And if we accept the sovereign God and worship Him, He carries us along despite all of the mysteries.
"Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!"
- Romans 11:33
