He can move the mountains
My God is Mighty to save
He is Mighty to save
Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave!
I was going to write a post about how I've saved money today, but I just can't... I need to praise and boast in my Lord! Hillsong's "Mighty to Save" has been playing through my mind over the past two weeks while the search and rescue of the Wild Boars football team in Thailand were underway. He is mighty to save! I prayed, "God, You can move mountains. You are a mighty God. You can lead the search team to these boys. You are a mighty God." Thousands, maybe even millions, of people around the world have been praying for the safe rescue of this team, for their families and for the incredible number of professionals and volunteers involved in their rescue.
If you were anything like me, you were often checking for any update on the situation in northern Thailand. Lord, You are mighty to save! The amazing news came today that all 12 boys and their coach have been saved from the depths of a mountain. The Lord showed the whole world that He is in control. He's in control of the circumstances that led the boys to go into the cave. He's in control of that monsoon that caused the water to rise rapidly in the cave, trapping the team inside. He led the rescuers to the team. He sustained the team the whole 17 days they were trapped in the dark. He gave everyone the ability and the knowledge to guide them out and into the light. Was it easy?! Absolutely not! The cave had it's ups and downs and it's very narrow points. Yes, unfortunately, a life was lost inside that cave. The Lord has His reasons that we find difficult to understand. But tonight, the team are resting in the care of the doctors and nurses, soon to be reunited with their family and friends. What an AMAZING picture of God's salvation!
Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now am found. Was blind but now I see!
If you live in the dark, without the Light of the World, Jesus Christ, in your life, you have every opportunity to ask our Heavenly Father to come into your save you. Jesus Christ came into the world to save you and me from eternal condemnation and separation from the God.
John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, that whoever shall believe in Him, shall have everlasting life!"
Friends, if you don't know your Saviour, Jesus Christ, I want to encourage you to seek Him. Ask Him into your life. You will find rest in His care. Please feel free at any time to send me a message if you'd like some support or encouragement. He is mighty to save! Amen.
