He has done marvelous things

Isaiah-25 1

From Isaiah 25:1 in the Amplified Bible comes the Verse of the Day for March 6, 2016:

[Song of Praise for God’s Favor] O Lord, You are my God; I will exalt You, I will praise and give thanks to Your name; For You have done miraculous things, Plans formed long, long ago, [fulfilled] with perfect faithfulness.

 

Similar words of praise to God flow from the Psalms and other places throughout the Scriptures that speak of the works of God, described as “wonderful, causing wonder or astonishing, miraculous, supernatural, of the highest kind or quality, notably superior.” These “marvelous” attributes belong to God who is so described in the following verses:

Psalm 40:5:

Many, LORD my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare

Psalm 98:1:

A psalm. Sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things; his right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him.

From 1 Chronicles 16:11-12 in the Amplified Bible also come these words from a Psalm of Thanksgiving:

Seek the LORD and His strength;
Seek His face continually [longing to be in His presence].

Remember [with gratitude] His marvelous deeds which He has done,
His miracles and the judgments from His mouth,

1 Chronicles 16:24 (AMP) goes on to say:

Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous works among all peoples.

Job 5:9 and Job 9:10 express this same profound truth about the God and His power:

Who does great things, [beyond understanding,] unfathomable, yes, marvelous and wondrous things without number.

Psalm 31:21:

Blessed be the Lord, for He has shown His marvelous favor and lovingkindness to me [when I was assailed] in a besieged city.

Psalm 96:3 (AMP):

Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous works and wonderful deeds among all the peoples.

From Psalm 118:23 (AMP) come these familiar words echoed by Jesus Christ in the Gospels:

This is from the Lord and is His doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.

We close out our comments with Fred Hammond, who reminds us: “O Give Thanks unto the Lord” with the refrain “He has done marvelous things.”
