There was a little rock and roll band from England that I’m a fan of. You may have heard of them, I think they were called the Beatles. Love the Beatles, love their solo works after they broke up as well.
As I was reading today’s text, believe it or not, I thought of one of Paul McCartney’s songs. Maybe I’m amazed. Really? I thought of a McCartney song? Yeah, I thought of Maybe I’m Amazed.
Listen to what the Word says in Luke 8: 24-25:
They went to him and woke him up, shouting, “Master, Master, we are perishing!” And he woke up and rebuked the wind and the raging waves; they ceased, and there was a calm. He said to them, “Where is your faith?” They were afraid and amazed, and said to one another, “Who then is this, that he commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him?”
And here’s my question based off of that. How about us? When was the last time that you or I was amazed at Jesus? When was the last time we took a step back and just said, wow. He is so good.
He is so strong.
He is so mighty.
Wow, our God is good.
We aren’t often amazed at God enough. We don’t lose our breath enough. We don’t tremble enough.
When was the last time that we were truly amazed at God?
It’s not that God is not amazing. It’s that we are not paying attention. Today, look around. Pay attention. Listen. Look. Pray.
Be amazed. Because God is amazing.
Today, may we be amazed at Jesus.
