Amazed

When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching (Mat 7:28).

The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!” (Mat 8:27).

And when the demon was driven out, the man who had been mute spoke. The crowed was amazed and said, “Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel” (Mat 9:33).

Coming to his hometown, he began teaching the people in their synagogue, and they were amazed. “Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers?” they asked (Mat 13:54). 

The people were amazed when they saw the mute speaking, the crippled made well, the lame walking and the blind seeing. And they praised the God of Israel (Mat 15:31).

When the disciples saw this, they were amazed. “How did the fig tree wither so quickly?” they asked (Mat 21:20).

The people were all so amazed that they asked each other, “What is this? A new teaching–and with authority! He even gives orders to impure spirits and they obey him”(Mar 1:27).

He got up, took his mat and walked out in full view of them all. This amazed everyone and they praised God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this!” (Mar 2:12).

So the man went away and began to tell in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him. And all the people were amazed (Mar 5:20).

When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed. “Where did this man get these things?” they asked. “What’s this wisdom that has been given him? What are these remarkable miracles he is performing? (Mar 6:2).

Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding and his answers (Luk 2:47).

All spoke well of him and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his lips. “Isn’t this Joseph’s son?” they asked (Luk 4:22).

Everyone was amazed and gave praise to God. They were filled with awe and said, “We have seen remarkable things today” (Luk 5:26).

And they were all amazed at the greatness of God. While everyone was marveling at all that Jesus did … (Luk 9:43).

Jesus was driving out a demon that was mute. When the demon left, the man who had been mute spoke, and the crowd was amazed (Luk 11:14).

For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, and he will show him even greater works than these, so that you will be amazed…(Jhn 5:20).

Oh Lord, continue to show us “greater things” that we might be more and more amazed by the unfathomable glory of your goodness. Ignite our hearts with fresh passion and wonder that we might stand in awe of the One who makes all things possible; the One who makes all things new. God, as we move into a new season,  unveil our hearts and eyes like ever before. We want to see your glory God; we want to see you as you really are! Jesus, you are more awesome and amazing than we can possibly comprehend, but we’re asking for a greater glimpse. Lord, let us be truly be amazed by you!

Look at the nations and watch–and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told (Hab.1:5).

Amen!
