And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, “He has done all things well. He makes both the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.” Mark 7:37
I am often fascinated with the stories of Jesus in the Bible. The stories of His healing and compassion on people (Matthew 8:1-3, John 8:1-11), the stories of Him defying religious odds (we need some of that today). He was/is so kind and so loving, the way He talked to people, the way He healed, the way He completely restored people's lives. He showed them love like no man ever had. He completely set about a new era.
Look at this verse again closely, And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, “He has done all things well. He makes both the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.” Look at that? "He has done all things well." He made deaf to hear, mute to speak, and many other things this verse doesn't mention. He cast out devils, opened blind eyes, set captives free, and showed loved to complete outcast in society. He did all things well, really well.
And you know what? He has done all things well in our lives too. Oh He really has people. Think for a minute. Really think. Really think about all the moments our Jesus has showed up in your life. All the moments He breathed His truth. All the moments He opened prison doors. All the moments He destroyed the lies. All the moments.
Think. Really think.
He has done all things well.
If you really pause and reflex, you will see that God has come through-making you to hear and see-in so many situations. You will see He's been there for you, when you weren't there for Him. You will see that He has been Your King, He He has been Your Friend...He has been your everything.
You will see He has done all things well indeed. Just trust Him, and He'll continue to do all things well.
Completely and totally.
