KNOWING WHO OUR GOD IS...LETS ME PRESS ON
Today, when I ask myself; soul, why are you weary, why are you downhearted?
It's another day, the Lord has made, aren't we to be as the scripture says, " I will be glad and rejoice in it "?. Psalms 118:24.
Yes, I know that and yes, I need to stop and think, who is this GOD?. When I think about our mighty Lord, the creator of the universe, the one that holds the whole world in His hand I am actually ashamed to feel anything but contentment and praise to this great I AM!.
So... I start reading in Bible scriptures of all the ways that He is SO GREAT!
I see that before the world was formed, it was void and without form. Genesis 1:1 So what happened?
Psalms 104:1 tells me You are great! You are clothed with splendor and majesty. Let all the earth rejoice. 1 Chronicles 16:31 tells me; let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice, let them say among the nations, " The Lord reigns". The King, clothed in majesty, let all the earth rejoice. He wraps Himself in light, and darkness tries to hide. and trembles at His voice. How great is Our God !.
Psalms 147:8-9 He provides rain for the earth, makes grass grow, Gives food for the animals
Psalms 90: 2 tells me; Before the mountains were born or You gave birth to the earth and the world even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.
Psalms 30:15 lets me know; My times are in Your hand. You knew when I was born..and You know when my last breath will be taken. You are the beginning and the end. You are the Godhead Three in one: Father, Spirit, Son.
Titus 3: 4-6 lets me know that because of Your kindness You as our Savior appeared to give us Jesus to forgive us of all our sins. Ephesians 2:18-22 gave us access in the Spirit to You the Father.
You're the Lion and the lamb. Revelations 5:4-8 describes how because of You as the Lion on Judah, You are worthy to open the book and its seven seals. And as the Lamb, You were slain for our redemption. Philippians 2: 9-11 continues, that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is LORD, to the glory of God the Father.
So..... HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD? Knowing WHO HE is, lets me press on to what He has in store for us His born again children. I have nothing to fear. My God is an Awesome God.!!
Please sing with me: How Great is our God, How, Great, how Great is our God! And all will see: How GREAT, HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD!
For the King and His Kingdom. sarahtylerauthor.com
