glory1Are you ever amazed by God? Just taken aback at what He has done? Sometimes we can lose that, can’t we? Sometimes, we can just take so much granted.

Forget how good He is.

Forget what we have to be thankful for.

Forget what He has done for us.

We don’t do it on purpose. It isn’t like we plan on forgetting. It isn’t like we think it’s a good idea. We just get busy. We lose focus. We take for granted. And we forget.

Listen to what Jesus says today in John 5:19-20:

So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise. For the Father loves the Son and shows him all that he himself is doing. And greater works than these will he show him, so that you may marvel.

He says, greater works will happen, so that we will marvel. Greater things will happen so that we will marvel. Everything great, all of this is done for God’s glory.
And so that we can marvel.

We can marvel at God’s grace in our lives. Marvel at forgiveness. And mercy. And love. And peace.

Marvel at what God is doing in us.

Marvel at what God is doing through us.

Marvel at His goodness.

Today, don’t take Him for granted. Don’t take that grace and mercy for granted.

Stop. Think. Look. Listen. Praise.

And marvel. Marvel at the goodness of God.
