This Is Our God

He takes a whole mass of nothing, a void of empty, and fills it with light—and life! This is our God. When His heart breaks over evil and sin consuming His precious creation, He seeks out the faithful and delivers them. After the waters roar and the mountain peaks are covered, He covers us with the promise of His unending love—a rainbow. This is our God. Despite the continuing cycle of disregard, disobedience, and idol worship, His compassion is moved at the cries of His children. He splits the seas in two, He guides by fire and cloud. He provides manna from heaven even amidst the whining and the wandering. This is our God. In hard places where there is no water, He makes streams come forth. The jugs of oil that have run dry, He fills to overflowing. When all hope seems lost and God seems silent, He is working on our behalf. When bones are dry and scattered, He breathes life and puts the pieces back together. This is our God. When the whole world cried out for saving, for a way back to God, He sent us Himself. Opening the womb of a virgin, making room where the animals were kept when there was no room elsewhere, opening our hearts to His Son. This is our God. The very heart of the Father among us: He turned the water into wine, touched the unclean, healed the sick and the broken, healed us by His death on the cross for our sins. This is our God. “Father, forgive them,” This is our God. The Way, the Truth, and the Life This is our God. The tomb is empty! This is our God. “I am with you always,” This is our God. • Savannah Coleman The time came for the baby to be born. Luke 2:6b (NIV)
