What Does This Song Say?

Oh God, You have done great things!

Are you facing something today has caused you to forget God’s faithfulness? Are you in a seemingly endless cycle of suffering and pain? Do you need to remind yourself of the character of the God we serve?

Remember who our God is. We just celebrated Easter, the day we remember the resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ. We remember this moment that changed all of history, the moment that changed the course of our future. We celebrate this moment every year because it is so easy for our lives to become consumed by the mundane moments and frustration of life. We celebrate this moment every week because we need to be constantly reminded of the great things that God has done. There is no greater love than this. There’s nothing greater to celebrate. There’s no person more worthy of being praised than the one who has done all of these great things!

Christ is the “Hero of heaven” who has “conquered the grave.” He is the One who all of the angels and elders are singing endless praise to. He is the One who has been faithful throughout all of history and will be faithful for all of eternity.

God is above all of the pain and suffering and brokenness of this world. God is unshakable and will never change because of our circumstance. God has done great things! God will do great things! The freedom that we have in Christ is enough to make us jump for joy. And we must remember that nothing we face will ever separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus because we are, ourselves, in Christ.

Scripure

Luke 4:18-19

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
    because he has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives
    and recovering of sight to the blind,
    to set at liberty those who are oppressed,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

John 15:13

“Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.”

1 Corinthians 15:55-57

“”O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Romans 8:38-39

“For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
