Today's Verse : Luke 5:26

Everyone was amazed and gave praise to God. They were filled with awe and said, "We have seen remarkable things today." — Luke 5:26 


Jesus forgave a man who was lame, then showed he had authority to forgive by healing him. As exciting and important as this healing was, the most important thing was the reaction of those who witnessed it; they praised God out of a sense of amazed awe. They recognized that Jesus had come to minister as God's very presence. When we understand who Jesus is and what he has done for us and will continue to do for us, we do the same thing today — we offer our praises with a sense of amazement and awe.


Almighty God and Heavenly Father, I glorify your name and thank you for your grace which you so lavishly poured out on me through your Son and my Savior, Jesus, in whose name I offer this praise. Amen.

  1. It is always a relief when we hear from home. It is always refreshing when we know God is in our midst. We were created to seek and find our fulfillment ONLY in God. Hence, the excitement and embrace when we see His mighty hands at work. "Have your way, Lord Jesus. Your Kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. I bow with all of me."
