Psalm 65:5 NET “You answer our prayers by performing awesome acts of deliverance, O God, our savior. All the ends of the earth trust in you, as well as those living across the wide seas.”
The appellation by which someone is known speaks to the character of the person. God is known to be in Scriptures as an awesome God. The word awesome derives its meaning from inspiring awe and reverential fear in a person. This depicts God’s person in His relation to mankind. The psalmist says, “You answer our prayers by performing awesome acts of deliverance”. God’s desire is that He be priority in our lives. Like a lover would like to keep his or her partner interested always, God desires that we continually remain interested in Him.
As we grow in relationship and communion with God we will experience more of Him. As you remain in faith, trusting God, He will certainly show up with awesome manifestations in your life. People of old have experienced God in like manner, the Psalmist said “When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream” (Ps.126:1).
Don’t be discouraged with life’s circumstances, search the Scriptures for awesome acts of deliverance and build your confidence in the character of God. He is the same forever, and if He did it in times past, He will surely do it in your situation also.
