Deep Iceburg

by Caleb Hancock

I don’t know if you’re like me, but when I go to the beach, I am frequently wondering what else is swimming out there with me. It gives me two feelings. One, is that I kind of get the heebie-jeebies when I get out over my head and can’t tell what’s under me. Second, is that there is so much about the oceans that we, as humans, will never know or be able to control. Think about how much water is in the ocean! Think about how deep and vast it is. Think about all the creatures that it supports!

That should be a springboard, if we view it rightly, to think of how awesome and mighty God is.

And the best part is that he didn’t just make it and leave it, but he is sovereign over it today. He wills it to exist and sustains everything about it, from the largest of tsunami’s to the smallest ripple off of a clown fish’s dorsal fin. Our God is not impotent to create, and thankfully for those who have sinned, nor is he powerless to save.

So the next time that you are in a situation where you feel small, let that motivate you to think about how infinitely BIG God is, and yet he regards you!!!

Psalm 95:1-5

Oh come, let us sing to the Lord;
let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
2 Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;
let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
3 For the Lord is a great God,
and a great King above all gods.
4 In his hand are the depths of the earth;
the heights of the mountains are his also.
The sea is his, for he made it,
and his hands formed the dry land.
