All the People Shall See the Works of the Lord

Exodus 34:10 “And He said: “Behold, I make a covenant. Before all your people I will do marvels such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation; and all the people among whom you are shall see the work of the Lord. For it is an awesome thing that I will do with you.

As I read this verse this morning I was struck again with how awesome the promises of God are to His covenant people!  Notice it is God who makes the covenant with us.  He is the one who does the marvels and through His people He reveals His mighty works.  We know that Exodus deals with God’s covenant with Israel but we are His New Covenant people and He promises to do mighty things through you and I as we yield to His indwelling life.

2 Corinthians 4:7 “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.”

We are never to be the center of attention or the focus.  We are simply the containers of His life.  I hope you will confess this reality, “I have the treasure of His life in me!”  But remember, He lives in you for a divine purpose.  He wants to do marvelous and mighty works in and through you.  Let’s come together as a community of grace and yield ourselves to His indwelling life and prepare to see “the excellence of the power.”  He will do mighty works, awesome things, in us and with us.  A work that will not only transform our lives but our community and our world.  Remember, we are not a kingdom of sovereign selves but a called out assembly of saints who do life together and release the mighty power of God in us.
