Psalm 77:14

“You are the God who works wonders; You have made known Your strength among the peoples.” (NASB)


“You are the God who works (`asah: makes, executes, performs, fashions, ordains, institutes, produces) wonders (pele': wonderful, marvelous, extraordinary, acts of judgment and redemption); You have made known (yada`: shown, told; made to see, understand and perceive; declared, revealed) Your strength (`oz or `owz: power and might) among the peoples.”


You are the God who produces and performs marvelous wonders; You have revealed your strength, power and might to all peoples.


The question is not if God is making Himself known, it is a matter of whether or not we notice it. Whenever I wonder why God doesn’t seem to perform such tangible and miraculous works today as I read that He did in the Word, I always arrive at the same conclusion. It is not He who changed, it is us. Throughout history I believe that mankind as a whole has expected less and less of God’s wonders to be seen in their lifetime. I desire to revive, if you will, this great expectation. I long for the LORD to reveal Himself to the nations and to be seen for Who He is. Will you join me today in anticipating His wondrous works to be seen by all nations and all peoples? Today, at every opportunity, be found looking for His handiwork and seeking out His marvelous acts - they are not hard to find.
