A “one-hit wonder” is something that achieves mainstream popularity and success for a very short time. It is usually for only one piece of work, whether it be in the area of music or sports. A good example of a one-hit wonder is the song, “Who Let the Dogs Out?” by the Baha Men back in 2000. In fact, this song made it into the top ten list of one-hit wonders (making it even more wonderful?)
What a contrast with the wonders God performs! Today’s verse explains how unfathomable and numerous are God’s wonders! This verse is even repeated in the book of Job for emphasis. His wonders are awe inspiring and remind us just how big He is and just how small we are. David states that God’s wonders are too many to declare (Psalm 40:5). Everything He does is a wonder of love and grace towards us. Whether it be His incredible creation, a miraculous healing, or a changed heart, it is all “wonderful” in the true sense of the word!
I sometimes think I get used to His wonders and even take them for granted. When that happens I lose the awe and worship that is due Him. He deserves all the glory, credit and recognition for the sun coming up this morning. The Lord wants me to tell the next generation of His praiseworthy deeds, His power and the wonders He has done in my life (Psalm 78:4). But how can I proclaim aloud His praises and tell of all His wonderful deeds if I do not even recognize them?
Lord, open my eyes today to Your wonders and the wonder of who You are!
