“I would seek unto God, and unto God would I commit my cause: Which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvellous things without number:”
The works of God are not only for the past, but they are something that can be done today if this generation is willing to pay the price to see those works done. Job understood God’s ability to do great works, not because someone told him about them, but because he had experienced them in his own life. This is why he was able to say, “Which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvellous things without number:” He knew what God could do because he had experienced what God can do. It was more than just a story that Job heard from someone else, but it was a life experience that he had lived that allowed him to make this statement.
One of the reasons this generation doesn’t see God’s great works is because they are doing nothing that requires God to work. God doesn’t need to work when His children are living in fear. God only does His work when His children choose to step out by faith to see Him come through. It is when you step out into the deep and have no other alternative to make it but God, that He does His mighty works through you. The verses above reveal several things about God’s work that should motivate you to desire them in your own life.
First, God’s works are great. When God does a work, you will know it. We know God worked at the Red Sea because it was a great work that only God could do. We know that God worked at Lazarus’ tomb because only a great work could raise someone from the dead. We could tell story after story about God’s works, and the only thing you could say about them is that they are great. God never does a mediocre work, but everything He does is great.
Second, God’s works are unsearchable. In other words, you will never exhaust the ability for God to do. Jeremiah 33:3 says, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” When you think you know how powerful God is is when He shows you something greater to astound you about His great power. We know about the works of God from the Scriptures, but because His works are “unsearchable,” you will never come to the point where you will know all of God’s power.
Third, you will never learn about God’s power until you become committed to His works. Verse 8 says, “…unto God would I commit my cause:” Too many believers are not committed to what they are doing for God, and that is why they don’t see God’s power in their life. My friend, get so committed to what you are doing for God that you don’t stop at the first appearance of adversity. God’s power is not known without adversity. It is when you face the impossible and adversity when God is able to show you His power and ability to do the miraculous. It is when you get committed to doing something great for God that quitting will not be the option when adversity arises.
Fourth, God doeth great works. The word “doeth” means He never stops doing. In other words, God is continually working in your life, even if you don’t think that He is working. The only time God stops working is when you quit. My friend, it doesn’t matter what comes at you and if it comes at you in waves, God will do great works and will continue to do great works if you keep doing what requires Him to do those great works.
