God is God

It appears the fire in my life, the lives of friends and family, and in the large scope of the world have been turned up.  I am not much of a prophet. I am an encourager and I pray God brings must needed encouragement to you today.

The one truth that brings me back to reality when things are spinning out of control around me is who I am-"A sinner saved by grace".  To remember I was out of control in rebellion against a holy God, when He spoke my name.  At His word He made me alive and the grave clothes were removed.  The grave clothes were not only removed but replaced with His clothes of righteousness.  All this for His pleasure and glory. 

Friend it is time to removed our eyes from our circumstances and remember His character.  God is so much more than His promises.  He is more than a ladder to remove us from the burning building. Yes, He will removed us from the fire after the flames do its work of burning away our
self centeredness
and such.  But our focus should be on God and His character.

He is the Creator.  He spoke the universe into existence.  He made the heaven and the earth.  He created you in your mother's womb.  He holds the world in His hands.  The earth is His footstool.  He measures the sand on the beaches.  He knows the number of stars in the sky and calls them by name  He has the hairs upon your head numbered.  He tells the oceans waves how far they can extend. He places the sun and moon in the sky and hides them when not in use.  He stores up the hail and snow to used in the day of battle.  He tells the lightening bolt when to strike.  He is God we are not.  He adorns Himself with majesty and splendor.  He humbles the proud and exaltes the humble.  All his work is done in justice and truth.  He mades the dead alive with purpose and truth.  He holds our very breathe in His hands. Wisdom and might are His.  He changes the times and seasons.  He removed kings and raises us kings.  He give wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.  He reveals deep and secret things.  He knows what is in the darkness and light dwells with Him.  His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom.  His dominion is from generation to generation. He is a God of mercy and truth. He does as He pleases and no plan of His can be stopped. 

Don't let the circumstances in your life paralize you in fear.  Bow before this great God in awe and surrender.  He is not our servant to meet our needs.  He is the God and we shall bow in humble adoration
