In a recent prophetic encounter I was before the Lord in an attitude of gratitude for all that HE has done. I was thanking Him for the many uncountable examples and displays of His mighty power we have been privileged to behold. When He totally stunned me with this statement: “YOU AIN’T SEEN NOTHING YET!” Then He directed me to look into this passage in the book of Job.
Yet these are but [a small part of His doings] the outskirts of His ways or the mere fringes of His force, the faintest whisper of His voice! Who dares contemplate or who can understand the thunders of His full, magnificent power?
Job 26:14 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
It is awe inspiring and breathtaking to understand that we have only seen the mere fringes of His force. We have only heard the faintest whisper of His voice. Even in the endless eternities of heaven we will never come to the end of the fullness and of understanding of all God is.
Wow! All that has been revealed all that mankind has seen of God is only the mere fringes of His force! All that we have heard is but the faintest whisper of His voice! These are parts of his ways — But very small parcels even of those of His works which are visible to us. No matter how elegant one’s speech nor profound their words it would be a vain and fruitless attempt to undertake, to speak of all the wonders of Almighty God! We stand only at the outskirts the mere fringes of His power and deeds.
God’s wonderful works are so countless, so great, and so far surpassing our narrow conceptions, that we can’t arrive at a perfect knowledge of them. But as Paul declared “I push and press forward that I might know HIM” (see Phil. 3:13).
This passage revealing the mere fringes of God’s mighty force has stirred within me a fresh new fire to get to know HIM more (see Job22:21). We must never be content to stand, as it were, at a distance with profound reverence, take a short, imperfect view of a few mere sketches of the effects of His wonder-working power.
Deep within our soul a greater hunger is rising to know HIM more! This powerful transformation from sideline to frontline is fast coming upon us. Just as Ruth was brought from the corner of the field to the center of the field to a place of fruitfulness so will the Church be brought to the forefront during these days (see Ruth 2:16).
But how little a portion is heard of Him? — Of his wisdom, power and providence. If these His external and visible works be so stupendous, how glorious then must be His invisible, and more internal perfections and operations!
Remember eye has not seen nor ear heard it is only by revelatory reception we receive more understanding of God’s mighty works. Pray the plea of
Psalms 90:16-17 “Oh Lord let YOUR works be seen!”
For what we see or know of Him is nothing in comparison of what we do not know, and of what is in Him, or is done by Him. But the thunder of His power who can understand? Of His mighty and terrible thunder, which is often mentioned as an eminent work of God. Prepare your heart to hear the roar of God’s thunders across the entire earth.
