I used to brag about a day gone well. How pridefully foolish was that? Knowing God the way I do now, I give all praise to God. Now, I want everyone around me to know that God is at the beginning and ending of each day. I pray, asking to see His glory at work in small and magnificent ways, and God never disappoints. In fact, every way that God works is pretty magnificent when you really consider all His ways. God is always at work in and around us. It is up to us, our responsibility of trust and faith, to listen more intently to hear God’s voice above all others. We need to laser focus our vision to recognize what God is doing right under our noses! Always God. That’s why we praise Him!
Our hearts, minds and souls need to be thrown open wide to receive Him so we “see” Him for who He is. The rest of our created senses must join in to feel His Presence in our created beings! Yes, He is God and we or no one else is…God. There is nothing He cannot do. There is no one He does not love. There is no one like Him. Seriously recognize God for who He is, not what we make Him to be in our small minds, but who He really is! He is Love, Mercy and Grace. God is the One and Only God who sent His Son to save us. He never changes in His love for us and He never will. What He promises, He delivers! Our changing society, who can’t decide what love is much less who to love, cannot be trusted–ever. Yes, God is the constant we can cling to in these times. Always God. Always.
Worship and Wisdom, Psalms and Proverbs
Psalm 93, The Message
1-2 God is King, robed and ruling,
God is robed and surging with strength.
And yes, the world is firm, immovable,
Your throne ever firm—you’re Eternal!
3-4 Sea storms are up, God,
Sea storms wild and roaring,
Sea storms with thunderous breakers.
Stronger than wild sea storms,
Mightier than sea-storm breakers,
Mighty God rules from High Heaven.
5 What you say goes—it always has.
“Beauty” and “Holy” mark your palace rule,
God, to the very end of time.
TRUTH: What you say, LORD God of all, happens! God from beginning to end. Always God.
Proverb 28:25, The Message
WISDOM: “A grasping person stirs up trouble, but trust in God brings a sense of well-being.” To know God as God alone who created the world, brings good from bad, protects, provides and loves beyond our wildest dreams brings a “sense of well-being” that no one else can give us. Always God.
Simple truth. Simple wisdom. I will look for you all day long and into the night. I will listen for your voice above the hard to understand voices of others. I will give thanks now for all you will do today. Help me to recognize all your works and give you glory immediately. I stand in awe of You, Lord. Always You, Lord God.
In Jesus Name, Amen
And I stand, I stand in awe of You
I stand, I stand in awe of You
Holy God, to whom all praise is due
I stand in awe of You…
