‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’

Great is Our Lord

Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised, And His greatness is unsearchable.
Psalms 145:3 NASB

Great is our Lord and abundant in strength; His understanding is infinite.
Psalms 147:5 NASB

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth Does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable.
Isaiah 40:28 NASB

Great is our God!
– His greatness is unsearchable.
– He is abundant in strength.
– His understanding is infinite!
– He is everlasting.
– He is Creator of the ends of the earth.
– He does not become weary or tired.
– His understanding is inscrutable (incomprehensible, unfathomable).

Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!
Romans 11:33 NASB

“Can you discover the depths of God? Can you discover the limits of the Almighty?
Job 11:7 NASB

Our God is rich in wisdom and knowledge so why do we walk in our own knowledge and wisdom? Why do we struggle so when God is just a prayer away. Why do we strive for the things which are not of God?
Our God is limitless and unfathomable are His ways. Now is the time to trust Him, turn to Him, follow Him, abide in Him, seek Him.
Slow down, be still, know that great is our God.

🌹Yet those who wait for the Lord Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.
Isaiah 40:31 NASB

Gladness and Peace

“I know that You can do all things, And that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted (defeat, obstruct, prevent).
Job 42:2 NASB

So why do we worry? Why do we try to obstruct or prevent the way of the Lord, His plan? Is He not in control? Is not His plan the best way for us?

Do we not trust in Almighty God? Or is it that we want it our way instead of His way?

I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear; But now my eye sees You; Therefore I retract, And I repent in dust and ashes.”
Job 42:5‭-‬6 NASB

It’s time to repent and seek God’s will and way.

Glory in His holy name; Let the heart of those who seek the Lord be glad. Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face continually.
Psalms 105:3‭-‬4 NASB

🌹 But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
Matthew 6:33 NASB

In Whose Hand is Life

that they (all mankind) would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children.’
Acts 17:27‭-‬28 NASB

In whose hand is the life of every living thing, And the breath of all mankind?
Job 12:10 NASB

For what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as is the Lord our God whenever we call on Him?
Deuteronomy 4:7 NASB

Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent, because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead.”
Acts 17:30‭-‬31 NASB

🌹 Call upon the Lord God with a repentant heart. Seek His face. In Him is life.

Your Portrayed Image

“For the despairing man there should be kindness from his friend; So that he does not forsake the fear (reverence for) of the Almighty.            Job 6:14 NASB

How we relate to people around us should demonstrate our reverence for Almighty God. When you relate to people around you – by your words, facial expressions, body language – what are they seeing?

Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near.            Philippians 4:5 NASB

Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.          Colossians 3:17 NASB

🌹Whose image are you portraying?

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.           2 Corinthians 3:18 NASB

Feast on Jesus

“Your words were found and I ate them, And Your words became for me a joy and the delight of my heart; For I have been called by Your name, O Lord God of hosts.”
Jeremiah 15:16 NASB

Jesus is the word made flesh.

And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14 NASB

Jesus is the bread of life.

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst. John 6:35 NASB

God calls us to grace and mercy found and granted by Him alone. Called unto salvation. Called to a loving relationship with Him. Called to obedience that exudes out of our love for Him.

Are you missing the joy and delight of the Lord? If so, could it be that you are starving yourself?

He said to me, “Son of man, feed your stomach and fill your body with this scroll which I am giving you.” Then I ate it, and it was sweet as honey in my mouth. Ezekiel 3:3 NASB

The word of God is important to our spiritual health. Without the word to nourish our souls we are walking a misdirected path in weakness and Ill health. Just as our physical bodies need nourishment so does our spiritual bodies.

Let us not neglect the importance of God’s word. Feed in it daily. Chew on it throughout the day.

God’s word keeps us on the straight and narrow.

“I have not departed from the command of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.
Job 23:12 NASB

“How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” Psalms 119:103 NASB

Feast on His word everyday. Not only will they be sweet to the soul but you will get to know just how sweet our Lord is.

🌹 “O taste and see that the Lord is good;” Psalm 34:8

Promise: Ask And It Will Be Given

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, when his son asks for a loaf, will give him a stone?  Or if he asks for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he?  If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him! — Matthew 7:7-11

Well God keeps His promises. He is so amazing. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before but I have really never searched for a job in my entire life. Don’t misunderstand me, I have worked most of my life but God has been so gracious to open doors of opportunity before I even begin the search.

New testimony August 29, 2014. Since I’ve been home (the end of May), from caring for my parents, I have not gotten a job. The good Lord has supplied all our needs with half the income for over 2 years. The other issue is that we only have one car so I need employment I can walk to. I have applied at one place but nothing has come of that yet. We are beginning to feel the need for a little more income in our household. Well this particular morning I went before the Lord God and asked for Him to help bring income into our home. I asked that He would get me a job if that was His desire. I knew that I would have to leave it to Him. I didn’t see any leads or how He would manage but I trusted that He could and would.

That very afternoon after I prayed I received a call from my best friend’s son asking if I would be interested in working at the Bible bookstore he works at. Wow! God is amazing. So I immediately got online and filled out an application, told him I had done it and he said he would be getting back to me early next week.

Also need to let you know that my friend suggested me to her son 2 days prior to his call to me. If I had received that call before the prayer, I would not have thought it to be a divine intervention. God’s timing is perfect. He can be trusted.

God keeps His promises. Sometimes very quickly. You can ask and receive because He does love you, cares for you and wants His best purpose for you.

Continually seeking Him,

Sharon
