Our God is a Mountain Mover

Today Josiah rejoined his Mom, Dad and three brothers at home. It has been three weeks since a very traumatic event landed him in the ICU, apparently near death. Thousands of folks around the world have been following his story, praying for him and his family, weeping tears of heartache and joy and marvelling at God's grace and mercy.

I am struck by the power of this situation and more so, how God has used it. My little brain is not able to process some of the big questions about how and why things happen. Here's what I know for sure: God is able to "move mountains" if that is His will. And He can do it in unexpected and amazing ways. Yet, there are other times that He chooses to work in ways that make us scratch our heads and say, "I would have done it differently." Still, He is God, He is sovereign, He is amazing, He is gracious, He is merciful and He is always His plans, for His glory.

It is our task, as His creation, not to question Him, but to worship Him. To move beyond speculation toward adulation. To stop doubting and begin praising. To look past the wisdom of man to the cross of Christ. At the end of the day, He ALONE is worthy, of all glory and honor and praise.

Today, we praise Him for His gracious healing and His magnificent provision for Josiah. Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
