Our God

Don't you know anything? Haven't you been listening? GOD doesn't come and go. God lasts. He's Creator of all you can see or imagine. He doesn't get tired out, doesn't pause to catch his breath. And he knows everything, inside and out. 

He energizes those who get tired, gives fresh strength to dropouts. For even young people tire and drop out, young folk in their prime stumble and fall. 

But those who wait upon God get fresh strength. They spread their wings and soar like eagles, they run and don't get tired, they walk and don't lag behind. Isaiah 40:28-31 The Message

What does this scripture tell us about God? He is always there. He is stable. He is consistent. He is enough. He knows everything about you. He knows everything about me. He gives us everything we need to keep going when we think we can't. He doesn't give up on us. When we want to sink, He helps us soar. That is our God.

Through Him, therefore, let us constantly and at all times offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, which is the fruit of lips that thankfully acknowledge and confess and glorify His name. Hebrews 13:15 AMP

He is so worthy of our praise. Today. With whatever is troubling your heart, He is worthy of our praise. With whatever is giving you joy, He is worthy of our praise. With whatever happened yesterday, He is worthy of our praise. With whatever is coming in your day, He is worthy of our praise.

We are not isolated from God, our Heavenly Father. God made a way for us to reconciled to Him, to commune with Him, through Jesus. 

But now, by giving himself completely at the Cross, actually dying for you, Christ brought you over to God's side and put your lives together, whole and holy in his presence. You don't walk away from a gift like that! You stay grounded and steady in that bond of trust, constantly tuned into the Message, careful not to be distracted or diverted. There is no other Message - just this one. Every creature under heaven gets this same Message. I, Paul, am a messenger of this Message. Colossians 1:22-23 The Message

So today, let's not walk away from this gift we have been given. Let's walk towards Him. Let's be in awe of Who He is. Let's call on Him for strength when we need it. Let's dare to dream that He can and He will........

Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams] - To Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it). Ephesians 3:20-21 AMP
