Today’s Scripture: The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea. Psalm 93:4

Michelle’s red hair swayed with the breeze as she stood on deck. Looking out over the railing, all she could see was the vastness of the ocean in every direction. “Well, Dad, I have officially seen the ocean.”

“You have?” he asked. “You haven’t really seen the ocean though. You have only seen a miniscule part of it. The sea is inexhaustible. But what is even more amazing is how the ocean is nothing more than a drop in God’s bucket of water.”

Sometimes we think we have seen the extent of what God can do. But really, all we have seen is a drop in the bucket. Scripture tells us the Lord is mightier than any sea. His love is deeper than the deepest depth, and His forgiveness is more endless than the waves. We will never be able to exhaust the goodness of God.

Have you forgotten what a mighty God you serve? You might be suffering from an illness or dealing with some major financial issues. Perhaps you are overwhelmed because you feel as if you will never find a mate. Friend, remember, the God you serve is mightier than the measureless waves of the sea. No problem is too great, and no request is unimportant to Him. Why not go to Him right now? The biggest problem is not even a drop in the bucket compared to His love.
