Our God Is Awesome!

“God’s word is alive and working and is sharper than a double-edged sword.  It cuts all the way into us, where the soul and the spirit are joined, to the center of our joints and bones.  And it judges the thoughts and feelings in our hearts.  Nothing in all the world can be hidden from God.  Everything is clear and lies open before Him, and to Him we must explain the way we have lived.”  Hebrew 4:12-12

Have You not told us, Father; and have we not heard?  Your ways of speaking are not like ours; no, not a word.  Instead, You speak to us through the wind, the weather, the conflict amongst nations; with sickness and disease, poverty, famine, and pestilence.  You tell us in thunderings and earthquakes–yet we still ignore Your voice.

You are God, for none can compare!  Your power and might rises far above any other god, and any other name!  You know everything, even the smallest fleck of dust does not go unnoticed by You.

My God!  My Savior!  And Your precious Holy Spirit You have generously given to your servant.  And there was a time when I did not take my full portion; not because I was trying to be polite, and not because I was full; but because I wasn’t sure I wanted to accept the responsibility that came along with Your gift.  I am so sorry, and I regret what I’ve done.

For my only hope lies in Your loving-kindness and in Your compassion, which I have taken for granted so often.

Oh Lord, the enemy rises against me daily to make war in my members against Your Spirit.  My flesh is corrupt and untamable, and is, by the end of the day, guilt-ridden.

I want so much to be right, Lord; to be right in Your eyes and to please You.  You are who makes me glad, Father, and I feel stained and afraid when I am full of sin.  Please continue teaching me Your ways, and help to keep my feet from stumbling.  My enemies laugh and mock me whenever I give in to temptation, when I allow them to rule me.  I am afraid of what is to come because You are so magnificent!  You do not tolerate sinfulness, and You have made your enemies fine powder in your enormous  hands.

I shall breathe, Father, and inhale Your sweet, loving scent.  Anoint me with Your oil and straighten me where I am bent.  Without You, I am nothing but a pile of old bones in the wilderness.  When I am broken and crushed,  it is only then I can by put back together–remade by You!  For You are marvelous, and everything Your hands create is awesome and magnificent!

  1. Once again, I say this is truly awesome! Today, I have done as I said to you last evening that I would post this on my site so that all my readers will have the opportunity to experience the joy and blessings that your message provides. I am also sharing it again today on my Google web page via G+1. May the God of peace rest and abide with you this day.

    • Once again Pastor, you have lifted my spirits and given me positive words and support I feel so unworthy of. Thank you doesn’t come close to how good you make me feel on the inside.

  2. Reblogged this on Vine and Branch World Ministries and commented:

    • Wow..what a treat! I said I love this song, and you posted it here for me! I used to sing this song to my ill patients in nursing homes…and when I did, they would eat there food where they wouldn’t eat before. I had a forty year old woman who lived in a caged bed because she was messed up from drugs and alcohol…her body was contorted and crippled..and she could only make noises, but not talk. They staff at the home where she lived (i worked for a hospice company) who had ‘had’ her as a pt for over 10 years said she’d never smiled. I would do silly things, like put kleenex up my nose while I bathed her and act silly, and I would also sing Christian songs to her, and she would smile and laugh. They couldn’t believe me when I told them she laughed, so I had to show them. What a blessing to make someone smile/laugh who is in that condition. She mixed cocaine with alcohol and lives her life to lie in a caged bed (so she doesn’t hurt herself with her flailings), unable to do anything but lie there and move and look around.

    • Thank you so much. It’s amazing when you have no electricity how much more time you’ll spend talking with God the way you should 🙂 No distractions; just me, my candles, the Bible, a pen and paper.

  3. Very good Lyn, thank you for sharing!

  4. This is truly awesome, you have poured your heart and soul into this and God is Blessing you right now and showering his favor over you for giving the words his powerful truth for all to experience and enjoy. Thank you for sharing. I truly do love it.

    • You’re welcome, Pastor. I hope it touches and blesses everyone who reads it, and shows everyone that our God is an Awesome God (I love that song!) We don’t serve a weak or silly God..we serve a powerful, almighty God…for against darkness, our God is a God of war! In righteousness He judges and makes war against the enemey, Satan.

"If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14 God's call to the world! Are you ready?
