He Has Done All Things Well

He Has Done All Things Well

When we look  at all  of God’s creation,  we can certainly marvel  and exclaim,  He has done all things well!      If we examine something  under a powerful microscope  and see how it works  ( and yet  without a total understanding ),  we can again exclaim,  He has done all things well!”      Looking through a powerful telescope  brings about  the same awesome wonder  about how the universe works.      But,  even there,  no one honestly understands  all the power working  to hold things together.      The words describe,  but we can’t actually see  the Power.

Although  we can’t see the Power,  the Power  is obviously there.

The same sort of awe  amazed the people  who followed Jesus.      Jesus had been  miraculously healing.      The people  in Mark 7:37  said in utter astonishment,

He has  done all things well;  He makes  even the deaf  to hear,  and the dumb  to speak.

Jesus did all that  to demonstrate  to everyone  that He had the power  of God Almighty  to do all things well.      He calmed the storm,  brought the boat to shore  in a moment,  cast out demons,  raised the dead,  and even provided  the needed tax money  in the mouth  of a fish.

All of that  proved beyond a doubt  that Jesus was Immanuel,  God with us.    ( Matthew 1:23 )      But,  those aren’t  the only details  we can look at.      We can read through  all of God’s word  in the Bible  and see  how many prophecies  were fulfilled  to the smallest detail.      Details like  Jesus was born  in Bethlehem,  but came out of Egypt,  and yet,  was called a Nazarene.      Even when Jesus  was supposedly  a tiny,  helpless baby,  things were happening  exactly as foretold.

It’s hard to imagine  all the power  that went into King Herod’s  jealous rage,  and the flight to Egypt  when Jesus was born.      Who could have guessed  all that God  put into place  to fulfill those prophecies?      The fulfillment included  having the Romans  conquer all that part  of the world  and setting up  a jealous Herod  in that region.      The fulfillment  even had to include  a fear  in the hearts  of Joseph and Mary,  so that  when they came back  from their stay  in Egypt,  they were too afraid  to stay  in the area  of Bethlehem.      They settled in Nazareth.

When we consider  all that happened  throughout Jesus’ birth,  life,  suffering,  death,  and resurrection — and how  it all was prophesied,  we exclaim,  He has done all things well!

Let us not overlook  all the miracles  that have taken place  so that we might be saved  by God’s grace  through faith  in that very Christ Jesus.      Then,  in awe,  we say,  “Hallelujah!      LORD God Almighty,  there is no doubt  that You have,  indeed,  done all things well  for our eternal salvation.”
