Thou shalt not be affrighted at them: for the LORD thy God is among you, a mighty God and terrible. (Deuteronomy 7:21).
Martin Luther said, “Your thoughts of God are too human” and that is exactly the problem today. God is not a feel good friend or a “wink at your badness” grandfather. He is the “God in whose hand thy breath is!”. He is not a “Mind” God; He is a Mighty God!
At the pleasure of God the Red Sea divided and its waters stood up as walls (Exo 14). On another occasion the sun stood still for Joshua (Josh 10); and went backward ten degrees on the dial for Hezekiah (Isa 38:8). To provide for his servant, God made ravens to carry food to Elijah (I Kings 17), to prove His power He made iron to swim on top of the waters (II Kings 6:5), to show His Protection the lions were tamed in Daniel’s lion’s den, and to show His Support for His people the Son of God walked in the fire with the three Hebrews children.
Never underestimate or under value God.
