The Greatness of Our God

David Wilkerson (1931-2011)

The Psalmist David reminds us of God's greatness even in the midst of overwhelming floods. Our current floods may have raised their voices loudly, but God rules over all of nature. He alone is in control.

David voices the pleas of those being overwhelmed by floods in their soul: "Save me, O God! For the waters have come up to my neck. I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing; I have come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me. I am weary with my crying: my throat is dry: my eyes fail while I wait for my God" (Psalm 69:1–3).

Yet David has also given us our answer in the midst of every great flood: "The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, than the mighty waves of the sea" (93:4).

Right now, floodwaters are rising for many believers — afflictions, trials, severe troubles, concern about world events. But God has declared this promise: "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned. Nor shall the flame scorch you" (Isaiah 43:2).

"The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in mercy. . . . For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him. . . . But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, and His righteousness to children's children" (Psalm 103:8, 11, 17).

"For Your mercy is great above the heavens . . . and Your glory above all the earth" (108:4–5).

"I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the mercy of God forever and ever" (52:8).
