A Great and Gracious God

Then Job replied to the LORD :

“I know that you can do all things; no plan of yours can be thwarted…My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you. Therefore I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes.” (Job 42:1, 5-6)

“No wonder Jonathan Edwards, the 18th-century New England theologian and preacher so mightily used by God, wrote that he found the most gracious work of God was generally performed when he was preaching on the sovereign Lord.

When God is seen and sensed as the living Lord he really is, then the groundwork is laid in our lives for true spiritual restoration.”
