Look to God

Have you ever experienced, truly experienced the joy of the Lord? I’m not taking about when things are going well in your life and you rejoice and are thankful to God; but when you are in the midst of turmoil and nothing is going right and you have a joy beyond explanation. Your heart is overflowing with love for the Lord. When you can’t contain it and your face shows it. Your mouth is opened with praise and song to THE  awesome God of all. When your eyes see only Jesus and His abundant love for you.

David wrote in time of fear as He fled from King Saul. He looked to his God.

My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises! Awake, my glory! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn. I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the nations. For Your lovingkindness is great to the heavens And Your truth to the clouds. Be exalted above the heavens, O God; Let Your glory be above all the earth.
Psalms 57:7‭-‬11 NASB

🌹Hoping you experience the joy of the Lord today.

Salvation to Conversion

But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their strength in time of trouble. The Lord helps them and delivers them; He delivers them from the wicked and saves them, Because they take refuge in Him.
Psalms 37:39‭-‬40 NASB

🌹 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation And sustain me with a willing spirit. Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, And sinners will be converted to You.
Psalms 51:12‭-‬13 NASB

Meditate

On the glorious splendor of Your majesty
And on Your wonderful works, I will meditate.
Psalms 145:5‭
All Your works shall give thanks to You, O Lord, And Your godly ones shall bless You.
They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom And talk of Your power;
To make known to the sons of men Your mighty acts
And the glory of the majesty of Your kingdom.
Psalms 145:10-‬12 NASB

Do you know the glorious splendor of the majesty of God and His wonderful works? Look around you

The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.
Psalms 19:1 NASB
Look at your family. Look in the mirror.

Bless the Lord, all you works of His, In all places of His dominion; Bless the Lord, O my soul!
Psalms 103:22 NASB

I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.
Psalms 139:14 NASB

O Lord, You are my God; I will exalt You, I will give thanks to Your name; For You have worked wonders, Plans formed long ago, with perfect faithfulness.
Isaiah 25:1 NASB

When you meditate (to engage in thought or contemplation; reflect) on God through His word, prayer, personal intimate relationship with Him you can see His glory in His creation: from the landscape to the heavens; the work He is doing in you and others.

🌹Choose today to slow down, meditate on God’s glorious splendor and begin to notice His glorious works. You will be thanking God, be a blessing to Him as you can’t help but speak of His glorious kingdom and power.  You’ll want to tell the world God’s mighty acts and the glory of the majesty of His kingdom.

Proclaim

One generation shall praise Your works to another, And shall declare Your mighty acts.
Psalms 145:4 NASB

That the generation to come might know, even the children yet to be born, That they may arise and tell them to their children, That they should put their confidence in God And not forget the works of God, But keep His commandments,
Psalms 78:6‭-‬7 NASB

It is the living who give thanks to You, as I do today; A father tells his sons about Your faithfulness.
Isaiah 38:19 NASB

And even when I am old and gray, O God, do not forsake me, Until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to all who are to come.
Psalms 71:18 NASB

Praising and proclaiming Jesus Christ is a life long endeavor that passes from generation to generation. Could the condition of our world be as it is because we have failed to proclaim the wonderful works of God, His strength, His power? Have we failed because we have not put our own confidence in God, following His commandments in obedience?

A daily, continual (minute by minute) walk with God naturally causes a desire to praise God and declare His mighty works. It starts with you and your relationship with Jesus Christ. To know Him is to love Him. To love Him is to proclaim Him.

🌹Don’t know Jesus? Seek someone who is a Christian, a church, God Himself to know. God said if you seek you will find.

🌹Professing Christian with nothing to proclaim? Repent before the Lord today. Turn and walk with God and He will give you opportunities to proclaim His name!

Shine Your Light

But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, That shines brighter and brighter until the full day.

🌹Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
Matthew 5:16 NASB

I’m Calling, God

The Lord sustains all who fall And raises up all who are bowed down.
The eyes of all look to You, And You give them their food in due time.
You open Your hand And satisfy the desire of every living thing.
The Lord is righteous in all His ways And kind in all His deeds.
The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth.
Psalms 145:14‭-‬18 NASB

🌹Lord, my Sustainer. Humbly I bow before You. In Your time raise me up. I look to You and You provide. You are my Provider.
You, God, are the satisfaction of my heart. Make my only desire be to abide in You.
You, Lord, are righteous in all Your ways and kind to me, Your child.
My heart seeks Your truth, Lord. Draw near to me, O God. I am in great need of You. Amen.

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

Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the adversary
Psalms 107:2 NASB

You have been redeemed. Paid for. Ransomed. Saved from the adversary. Free to walk with Almighty God. Abiding in your Creator and He in you. How can we keep silent when we have received such a gift?

🌹”Let the redeemed of the Lord say so!” Walk continuously, with a “sober spirit” so you are able to “extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
