I have seen wonders. We have all seen wonders.
God showed the Israelites many wonders.
God delivered them out of Egypt through his miracles and plagues. God guided them on their journey in a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. God parted the Red Sea. God delivered their enemies into their hands. And, He did so much more.
Notice that God performed all of those wonders. Would you believe me if I told you God has performed wonders just for you as he did the Israelites?
In fact, his wonders are all around us.
Wonder is defined as a feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable. By that definition we have all seen many wonders. Whether that is a stunning mountain range or admiring the moon and stars at night.
Now think of all of the wonders that you have seen in your life. Some unique to you, and some laid out for all to experience. Why? Why do we see these wonderful things?
We see because the one who has performed these miraculous wonders is wanting us to see how miraculous he is. He wants you to know that he is your God and you belong to him. That is why the sun comes up in the morning. That is why you woke up this morning. That is why coffee tastes so good. That is why going on vacation is so great. That is why there is a place to eat at like Raising Canes. That is why great movies that I love are made. That is why we feel love. That is why miracles happen. And, that is why everything wonderful in this entire world exists. Just so that you would know him as your God and love, obey, and serve him wholeheartedly.
God is full of wonder.
“You were shown these things so that you might know that the Lord is God; besides him there is no other.”
“He is the one you praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes.”
