Job 26:14 And all of this, all of these are the mere edges of His capabilities. We are privy to only a whisper of His power. Who then dares to claim understanding of His thunderous might? (VOICE – emphasis mine)
I love Thanksgiving. Somehow it has so far escaped the crass commercialism of Christmas.
As a Christian I have been trying to cultivate a thankful spirit all year long. Ann Voskamp, in her book One Thousand Gifts, says that thankfulness opens the door to trusting God. Of all people on earth, Christ-followers should be grateful because we are the beneficiaries of His grace.
Sometimes when struggling with the issues of a family member with a brain disorder, I have difficulty finding that peaceful place. That’s why I love this verse from Job. Even if all else appears bleak, I can remind myself of God’s greatness, His sovereignty, His love, His power.
We only get tiny glimpses of Him in this lifetime – the edges and whispers of a greatness we will one day see fully in heaven.
That is more than enough to be thankful for.
