It's always around this time of the year that hear about the "war on Christmas" and while there is some truth to that, the fact is that there is a war on God. We are a rebellious people who are constantly shaking our fists at God. In many ways, we scream out, "You're not fair! You're not just! You're not doing your job! You've let us down!" Maybe that's why so many in our nation have abandoned the Living God for gods of their own making, including their own political ideology.
No matter where you stand on the political spectrum, or where you find yourself in relation to Almighty God, even if you don't believe in His existence--He is still on his throne. He is a debtor to no one. We can NEVER do enough that God would owe us anything. We cannot establish a claim on God's love, mercy, grace or forgiveness based on our birth or our beauty or our brains or behavior.
Sheldon Cooper (The Big Bang Theory) may have one of the highest IQs known to man, but that doesn't make God a debtor to Sheldon in any way whatsoever. Sheldon's wisdom and knowledge about the universe is so infinitesimally minuscule when compared with God's wisdom, power and strength.
God is always ready to surprise us with new things. He is always at work behind the scenes performing his will and good pleasure. In other words, when you don't think God is there, or don't think He's doing anything, He is still at work, and in time, you will see the evidence of what He is doing at this very moment.
He never drops the ball. He never screws up. He never says "Oops!" He is never caught off-guard or caught by surprise.
Everything you and I have comes from Him. Everything that exists--all of creation is His handiwork.
So this Christmas, take time to reflect on the wonder, majesty, strength and wisdom of Almighty God. To God Be the Glory. Great things He has done!
As Job 36:22-24 (NLT)
22 “Look, God is all-powerful. Who is a teacher like him? 23 No one can tell him what to do, or say to him, ‘You have done wrong.’24 Instead, glorify his mighty works, singing songs of praise.Romans 11:36 (NLT)
36 For everything comes from him and exists by his power and is intended for his glory. All glory to him forever! Amen.
