The God Who Makes Things Happen

"You're the God who makes things happen; you showed everyone what you can do -- You pulled your people out of the worst kind of trouble, rescued the children of Jacob and Joseph." (Psalm 77:14,15, The Message).

The great epic event of the Old Testament was the Exodus -- the day God delivered His people out of bondage in Egypt. They were in the worst kind of trouble, and God brought them out of it.

They were up against the impassable Red Sea, and God brought them through it on dry ground. He made a way where there was no way. The armies of Pharaoh were pressing down upon them, but they escaped -- while the horse and the rider were drowned in the sea.

God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. The things that were written in ancient times are alive and relevant for us today. We are filled with hope in our times of difficulty as we gaze back upon what God has done in the past for His people.

And we know that even unto this very day, He is the God who makes things happen. He will make a way where there seems to be no way possible.

No matter how crazy things get in your world, and no matter how distant God may seem to be from you in your moment of need -- He has not forsaken you, nor will He abandon you. He is the God who makes things happen.

He can, and He will, pull you out of the worst kind of trouble. But, of course, that means you have to be IN the worst kind of trouble to begin with! So, take heart, my friend -- when the trouble comes, then know that Deliverance is also on the way.

We serve the God who makes things happen!
