Two Minute Drill - Week of August 1

How Does He Do That?

One of the reasons we like watching a NASCAR race, or a PGA major, or a world-class track and field event is because we enjoy wondering how people are able to perform with that kind of skill, at that kind of level. Who stands over an iron shot in the heavy rough and mashes it 200 yards, within a few feet of the pin? Who runs a marathon in a little more than two hours and survives to make it to the medal ceremony? Wow.

If you ever want to spend a few minutes in your Bible having this same kind of feeling, the book of Job, chapters 38-41, will give you that sensation. You'll experience a tour de force through some of the greatest mysteries of God's Creation, and wonder, "How does he do that?"

"Who cuts a channel for the currents of rain, and a path for the thunderstorm?" (38:25) "From whose womb comes the ice? Who gives birth to the frost from the heavens?" (38:29) Who can give "the horse his strength or clothe his neck with a flowing mane?" (39:19) Who could "make a pet" of a giant whale or "put him on a leash for your girls" if he felt like it? (41:5)

It's amazing enough to look at the world around us and marvel at what we see. It's even more amazing to know that the God who loves us is the One who thought up, designed, and made it all.

Pray this prayer: Lord, whenever I'm impressed by what another man can do, help me see that it's nothing compared to the One who makes him able to do it. I stand in total awe of you again today.
