For he divided the sea and led them through, making the water stand up like walls! In the daytime he led them by a cloud, and all night by a pillar of fire. He split open the rocks in the wilderness to give them water, as from a gushing spring. He made streams pour from the rock, making the waters flow down like a river! Psalm 78: 13-16 NLT
Here is an impossible scene: water standing up like walls. And here is another: being led by a cloud in the day and by a pillar of fire by night. Yet another is rocks being split open to produce running water in the middle of a desert.
Think about your life. What impossible or improbable things have happened to you or ones close to you? Can you attribute these to God? Why or why not?
The psalm gives us pictures of the impossible and gives God all the credit. Perhaps with our scientific world view, we don't see the impossible as much anymore. Even coincidences have become good karma or streaks of good luck.
Open yourself to the miracles that God continues to do in your life in in the lives of those around you. Try to see with the eyes of the psalmist.
God, open my eyes to your impossible activities in the world today. In Jesus' name. Amen.
