How Great Is Our God!

Posted on October 14, 2016 at 6:35 AM

The powerful Scripture ending the last blog challenges evil. When we allow ourselves to drift away from God, satan’s demons are right there to lead us into doubt. Look at this Scripture and tell me what your reaction to it is:


Deuteronomy 13:4 AMP

You shall walk after the Lord your God and you shall fear [and worship] Him [with awe-filled reverence and profound respect], and you shall keep His commandments and you shall listen to His voice, and you shall serve Him, and cling to Him.

Does it remind you of how you should be, but perhaps you have slipped away from the “awe-filled reverence and profound respect”? Or does it make you question if it is is necessary? A little doubt can take root and grow a tree of discontent. Be aware, my friends, in these end times that the enemy is always watching for an inroad to our hearts. If you sense a doubt of any kind or size trying to inveigle its way into your thoughts, close up that channel quickly and begin praising God! For the enemy is after those who love the Lord, and the enemy deceptions are fierce and cunning.


Dear ones, many are suffering in this world from the enemy warfare~ suffering physically and mentally from cruel attacks. Please lift up our brothers and sisters who are undergoing terrible distress and pain at the hands of ISIS and other demonic groups and peoples. If you are also under this kind of attack, know many are praying for your strength and God’s enduring Presence to be with you. May Holy Spirit continue to speak His Word into your spirit, and bring comfort wherever you have need.

Isaiah 33:2 (NIV)

Lord, be gracious to us;

we long for you.

Be our strength every morning,

our salvation in time of distress.

Lord God, on this morning of great need, I lift my eyes to You alone. You know my distress, my need right now. You lift me right up into your throne room, that I may prostrate myself in Your mighty Presence. Here I humbly lie at Your feet in worship; my heart cries in joyful thanksgiving that I can be with You for these moments.


I rest in Your majesty, in a love so powerful I am lifted soaring in a current of love that cleanses me from all doubt, and fills

me with pure joy. Oh Jesus, thank You! No longer am I subject to the evil power of my enemies, for what can man do to me when Your joy fills me?

Hear Jesus talking to His Father about us:

John 17:13-16(AMP)

13 But now I am coming to You; and I say these things [while I am still] in the world so that they may experience My joy made full and complete and perfect within them [filling their hearts with My delight].

14 I have given to them Your word [the message You gave Me]; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world and do not belong to the world, just as I am not of the world and do not belong to it. 15 I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but that You keep them and protect them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

 

Lord God, You have not taken me out of the world, but You keep me close; You fill me with Your joy, so nothing the enemy can do to me matters. You protect me in Your secret power that bursts forth from Your hand.

Habakkuk 3:4 (AMPC)

And His brightness was like the sunlight; rays streamed from His hand,

and there [in the sunlike splendor] was the hiding place of His power.

Thank You for loving me so well, my God! You actually rejoice over us with joy.


Zephaniah 3:17 (NASB)

“The Lord your God is in your midst,

A victorious warrior.

He will exult over you with joy,

He will be quiet in His love,

He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.”

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
