He does all things well.


Mark 7, Jeremiah 37-39

Mark 7:37 – And they were astonished beyond measure saying, “He has done all things well. He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.”

Lord Jesus, they don’t even know. This crowd couldn’t even begin to know what they were saying. I can’t even begin to know how right this crowd really well. They were just talking about what they could see. And what they saw was amazing all on its own.  You took a man who was deaf and mute and you loosed his tongue and opened his ears.  Astounding.  Just that was enough for them to say, “He has done all things well.”  But Jesus, there is so much more truth in this statement than that you did a good job healing this man.  Everything you put your hand to is done perfectly well.  Your gifts and abilities, Lord Jesus, are limitless.  Your skill and your personality and boundless.  Jesus, if you took a strength finder’s test they wouldn’t know what to do because you are strong in every area.  You have no weak spots.  Your wisdom and your understanding overflows for every situation, for every individual in every situation, even for the eternal good of every individual in every situation.  You know what needs to be done and you get it done.  It is good.  And Jesus, my heart overflows with joy and astonishment, because you have me in your sights, to do good for me and not to harm me, to give me hope and a future.  Lord Jesus, my heart is in awe because you certainly do all things well.  Amen.
