Scripture Reading: Job 37
“God thundereth marvelously with his voice; great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend,” Job 37:5.
Tamuno Ibakam means “God is too much” in Kalabari dialect. Beloved, we have a God who is just too much. There is nothing He cannot do, has not done, and will not do. No power can compare with His power. He is the great God.
Heaven is His throne and the earth is His footstool, Isaiah 66:1. Our Father is so big that His legs span the space between earth and heaven. He is indeed too much and Job describes His greatness.
“At this also my heart trembleth, and is moved out of his place. Hear attentively the noise of his voice, and the sound that goeth out of his mouth. He directeth it under the whole heaven, and his lightning unto the ends of the earth. After it a voice roareth: he thundereth with the voice of his excellency; and he will not stay them when his voice is heard. God thundereth marvelously with his voice; great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend. For he saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength. He sealeth up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work. Then the beasts go into dens, and remain in their places. Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north. By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened. Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he scattereth his bright cloud: And it is turned round about his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth. He causeth it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy. Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God. Dost thou know when God disposed them, and caused the light of his cloud to shine? Dost thou know the balancing of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge? How thy garments are warm, when he quieteth the earth by the south wind? Hast thou with him spread out the sky, which is strong, and as a molten looking glass? Teach us what we shall say unto him; for we cannot order our speech by reason of darkness. Shall it be told him that I speak? If a man speak, surely he shall be swallowed up. And now men see not the bright light which is in the clouds: but the wind passeth, and cleanseth them. Fair weather cometh out of the north: with God is terrible majesty. Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict. Men do therefore fear him: he respecteth not any that are wise of heart,” Job 37.
We can go on and on about the greatness of our God. Because of the irreverent attitude in our generation, God seems like just one familiar subject that we talk about, but God is greater than your greatest imagination. God can do much more than you can ever ask or think. God can bless much more than He has blessed you ever before. God is able to do a new thing in your life, but you need to acknowledge that He is a great God. You need to acknowledge that there is nothing He cannot do. You need to acknowledge that He is able to bless and heal you, able to restore to you the years the locust has eaten, able to heal your backsliding, and able to meet that unspeakable need in your life. He is able to heal that emotional sickness and to cover your vulnerable areas. God is able to feed you, to direct you, to give you wisdom. Indeed, He is the great God and He is too much.
Today, will you connect your little strength to His great strength? Will you connect your weakness to His power? Your lack to His plenty? Your need to His provision? Your sorrow to His joy? O Father God, connect us to your greatness. We are too small in our might because our minds are small. But today Lord, I pray for those who are sick in body, soul, or spirit, that each be connected to your healthy spirit in the name of Jesus. You are a great God and there is nothing you cannot do. Let us be changed by your power and ready to do your will, O Lord. I pray for that one who is in need today; who does not even have food to eat; I connect them to your store of blessing, your store of provision and food. I connect that one who is tired to your hand that strengthens and refreshes. Father, touch your children today and let your healing hand be upon us. Heal every area of our lives in the powerful name of Jesus we pray, because you are our God and you are too much!
