Our Indescribable God
Then the channels of the sea were seen, the foundations of the world were uncovered, at the rebuke of the Lord, at the blast of the breath of His nostrils. - 2 Samuel 22:16
David expounds his in-depth knowledge of God’s power. In utter rebuke, the Lord can blast the earth with His breath through His nostrils. The force would be strong enough to remove the surface of the seas, exposing its deep channels—the hidden course for the currents of ocean waters to move over. The earth’s crust would be uncovered, beneath the thin surface; we would see the foundation of the world––incredible!
Imagine, as David tries to describe our eternal God to us, our minds cannot even grasp His infinity, majesty or glory! He is omnipotent––all powerful and often indescribable! We know God is the creator of heaven and earth (Genesis 1:1); He created the dry ground and the waters: …God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas (Genesis 1:9-10). Psalm 8:1 tells us:the fish of the sea… pass through the paths of the seas. God also set boundaries for the waters:
For I have placed the sand as a boundary for the sea, an eternal decree, so it cannot cross over it. Though the waves toss, yet they cannot prevail; though they roar, yet they cannot cross over it(Jeremiah 5:22).
God asked Job: Who has divided a channel for the overflowing water, or a path for the thunderbolt? (Job 38:25). David, Job and Jeremiah knew God intimately and through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, what they each wrote, gives to us a glimpse of God’s limitless, creative power.
Do you know the Creator of heaven and earth personally?
My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
