Oh God, You are my God
Oh God, You are my God
And I will ever praise You

Oh God, You are my God
Oh God, You are my God
And I will ever praise You

I will seek You in the morning
And I will learn to walk in Your ways
And Step by step You’ll lead me
And I will follow You all of my days…

We are at our best when we stop all our thinking and over thinking, stop all we are doing and plan to do and just praise God.  We were created to praise our God.  Pure praise to God is a process of emptying our hearts and minds of self while God fills us with Hope.  Our Hope is Jesus.

Yes, Lord God, like Isaiah, I will celebrate you right now in this place.  I will praise you with all that is in me!  Step by step you lead me and I will follow you all of my days!

Isaiah 25, The Message

God’s Hand Rests on This Mountain

1-5 God, you are my God.
    I celebrate you. I praise you.
You’ve done your share of miracle-wonders,
    well-thought-out plans, solid and sure.
Here you’ve reduced the city to rubble,
    the strong city to a pile of stones.
The enemy Big City is a non-city,
    never to be a city again.
Superpowers will see it and honor you,
    brutal oppressors bow in worshipful reverence.
They’ll see that you take care of the poor,
    that you take care of poor people in trouble,
Provide a warm, dry place in bad weather,
    provide a cool place when it’s hot.
Brutal oppressors are like a winter blizzard
    and vicious foreigners like high noon in the desert.
But you, shelter from the storm and shade from the sun,
    shut the mouths of the big-mouthed bullies.

6-8 But here on this mountain, God-of-the-Angel-Armies
    will throw a feast for all the people of the world,
A feast of the finest foods, a feast with vintage wines,
    a feast of seven courses, a feast lavish with gourmet desserts.
And here on this mountain, God will banish
    the pall of doom hanging over all peoples,
The shadow of doom darkening all nations.
    Yes, he’ll banish death forever.
And God will wipe the tears from every face.
    He’ll remove every sign of disgrace
From his people, wherever they are.
    Yes! God says so!

9-10 Also at that time, people will say,
    “Look at what’s happened! This is our God!
We waited for him and he showed up and saved us!
    This God, the one we waited for!
Let’s celebrate, sing the joys of his salvation.
    God’s hand rests on this mountain!”

10-12 As for the Moabites, they’ll be treated like trash,
    waste shoveled into a cesspool.
Thrash away as they will,
    like swimmers trying to stay afloat,
They’ll sink in the sewage.
    Their pride will pull them under.
Their famous fortifications will crumble to nothing,
    those mighty walls reduced to dust.


This chapter is a song of praise to the Lord from the believing remnant that he preserved during the day of the Lord. Prophetic songs of hindsight are useful to us in reminding us what we will eventually see when we look back on all that God has done in our lives that we are unable to see clearly moment by moment. 

We look back with gratitude for all God has done in our lives.  We look up with praise to God for all He is doing right now.  We look forward with Hope.  And in all things, we sing and celebrate God who was, is and always will be our God.

“I made you, and I will care for you.”  Isaiah 46:4


I praise you for all you have done through out my life to teach me, bring me out of trouble, set feet on solid ground, love me unconditionally so much that you died and rose again so my sins could be paid for in full.  Who is like you, Lord?  No one.  No one is like you!  To you be all glory for all that is good, right and pleasing to you.

I praise you for how you are working in my life right now in a new season of my life.  I praise you for providing for our needs and protecting us from all that evil would like to do to us. 

I praise you for the Hope in Jesus, now and forever.  I praise you for the room you are preparing not only for me but all who believe in you and live life in your ways.

I believe.  I always have and always will.  You are God.  I am yours.

In Jesus Name, Amen
