Psalm 66:1-12, More than Movie Magic

Key Verse

Come and see what God has done:
he is awesome in his deeds among mortals.
He turned the sea into dry land;
they passed through the river on foot.
— Psalm 66:5-6

RCL Daily Devotion for Friday, October 11, 2019

RCL Daily Devotions written by R. Fergus Moir from RCL Worship Resources (see more).

I remember watching DeMille’s The Ten Commandments when I was a kid. That scene with the parting of the Red Sea was something else! A God who can do that is a mighty God indeed. But I never saw anything like that happen in real life. Where were these “awesome deeds” God is supposedly capable of?

I have come to know that God’s deeds in the world are far more awesome than anything Hollywood special effects can create. With those sorts of things we are merely observers. God, on the other hand, invites us to be full participants in God’s world, drawing us into the wonder of all creation, inspiring us to work together for justice, transforming our lives, and leading us in the way of eternal life. I’ll take that over an epic movie any day.

Where have I witnessed God’s awesome deeds recently?
