OUR WONDERFUL GOD
God almighty! Creator of heaven and earth. The Alpha and the Omega. The everlasting one. Jehovah Jirah. Our provider. The names of God are many and he is indeed king of kings and Lord of Lords. He is greater than any human leader and controls the universe. Nothing is too difficult for him. He allows things sometimes for a reason, even bad stuff. He loves us with an everlasting love.
Get alone sometime and turn off the noise boxes in your life such as your radio, phones, televisions and just spend time alone with God. Go to a park free of chattering voices. Just spend time meditating on the goodness of God and what he has done for you. Sometimes the commotion that seems nonstop in our busy lives tends to drown out God. You can be in church singing praise songs like you are just going through the motions. No impact, no change, no excitement about Jesus. It is time to love the Lord your God with all your heart and soul and strength.
Do you realize just how wonderful God is? Take a look at the stars at night. Watch the thunderstorms roll in. Marvel at the flowers and the birds. He has made it all. He made us for His purposes.
Psalm 100:5 says "For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations."
1 Chronicles 16:34 says "Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever." Psalm 108:4 says "For great is your love, higher than the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies."
PRAYER: Thank you Lord for your goodness and mercy and your wonderful creation. At times I do not take enough time to just sit and reflect on how great and awesome you are. Thank you for creating me and placing me just where you have me. Help me shine for you. In Jesus Name. Amen.
