Father, Your majesty and glory sing forth from Your Word as the universe echoes the truth. You are the God Almighty, King of Kings! You are the Creator of all that is good and beautiful. You are love rolled out like a covering for Your people protecting, enfolding, lifting up, holding in a warm embrace. Your truth unfurls like a garment of exquisite silk revealing Who You are and who we are as Your beloved children. We are treasured by You.
Jesus, Your Word expresses the immense majesty of Who You are:
Hebrews 1:3 He is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and
He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God’s] nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power.
When He had by offering Himself accomplished our cleansing of sins and riddance of guilt, He sat down at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high,
Holy Spirit, You are the Comforter sent by Jesus to do, as He said, over and above what He could do as a single God-man, for You are spirit and can indwell each of us. Comforter~ really like what Lynne Hammond discovered about that word: Derived from the Latin word for fortress, the term comforter was chosen by the first translators because it refers to a person who is brave, strong, and courageous, like a warrior who meets challenges with a strength that defies all odds. It speaks of someone who is lionhearted or tough, or a force that dominates and subdues.
That is the strength of You Holy Spirit, and You impart it to us through Your indwelling Presence. We are the mighty warriors You call us to be, because You are working within us ~ live Your life in us, Holy Spirit! We submit to You.
Lord God, in Your great wisdom You have called each of us to live the life You created us to have, not a life of ease and lazy comfort, but a life of greatness and courage. We are Your people, called by You to work out a life of love for all Your children, called to be Jesus to each other. Jesus stood firm for truth, never backing down! He fulfilled His destiny of Savior for all mankind! We too have a great destiny requiring courage.
Do not say, ‘Jesus is God so He could do these things.” Jesus gave us the Holy Spirit, Who is God, to indwell us! God indwells us! We have no excuse!
If you do not know Jesus, do not know God, begin now to become acquainted with Him. The book Cast Up A Highway is a good beginning. Pray to God to lead You to a church, a Bible Study, a teacher, one who knows truth. This is the time! This is your time! Do not delay!
