His Majesty

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News -

Colos­sians 1:16-17 NKJV

“For by Him all things were cre­ated that are in heaven and that are on earth, vis­i­ble and in­vis­i­ble, whether thrones or do­min­ions or prin­ci­pal­i­ties or pow­ers. All things were cre­ated through Him and for Him. And He is be­fore all things, and in Him all things con­sist.”

Some­times it is very dif­fi­cult to com­pre­hend the majesty of God, to get to a point where you be­lieve He is real and He is there. We tend to be­lieve what we can see; faith is based on the ac­tions or things that come alive in our lives.

Within this jour­ney that is life, we are of­ten con­founded by all sorts of things that dis­suade us from be­liev­ing. The quick­est way to lose faith is when one is con­fronted by cir­cum­stances that they can­not quite un­der­stand.

Scenes that are un­scripted come up un­ex­pect­edly and to­tally throw us off course. In these mo­ments of doubt, ques­tions tend to rise as to whether He is re­ally there and why these things are hap­pen­ing.

Be­reave­ments, fi­nan­cial dif­fi­cul­ties, re­la­tion­ship prob­lems and just life in gen­eral are some of the dif­fi­cul­ties we go through that be­gin to cast so much doubt in our minds as to His ex­is­tence.

To­day, I would like you to re­flect on the won­der­ful hand­i­work that is this world, the things we take for granted but yet can­not ex­plain. The in­fin­ity of the skies out­side, the end­less space that is beyond what any­one has ever seen, the stars that shine, whose home and ori­gins no one can prop­erly ex­plain, the sun and its ra­di­ance, it’s never end­ing glare, from gen­er­a­tion to gen­er­a­tion.

The grass and where it orig­i­nates from, and how pic­turesque it looks amongst the veld. The con­trast of the colours, the flow­ers and the plants that make this ta­pes­try that only a very gifted artist could ever imag­ine and put to­gether. Take a look at the peo­ple in your home, the amaz­ing dif­fer­ences that make up all the char­ac­ters, the warmth, the laugh­ter and the abil­ity to cry.

The hu­man fea­tures that we take for granted; the abil­ity to smell, to see, to hear, to taste. These amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ences that make you who you are. To­day think about this and more, think about the end­less won­der that is God and His amaz­ing abil­ity to do the im­pos­si­ble.

Have you ever dwelled on the process that is child birth, from the start till the end, a jour­ney that is beyond be­lief, but this is the gift you have been given, where the im­pos­si­ble is a day to day re­al­ity,

The next time you are gripped by fear or doubt just look to the skies, look to all the won­ders that are abound, He can do this and more.

He is God, he is the author and fin­isher of ev­ery­thing. Re­mem­ber He can do more and noth­ing, ab­so­lutely noth­ing, is im­pos­si­ble with Him.

Be blessed.
