Everything He is - He is for you!
Hey there friends!!!!!
This will be my last post before the new year - I'll start back up with posts on Jan. 7th, 2013!!! Crazy amazing that a new year is upon us isn't it?! :O)
I've been thinking lately about God's amazing names. I hear His majestic names being sung about in song, read them as they are proclaimed in Scripture and see the evidence of them all throughout creation! It gives me *chill bumps* just to think that ALL of Who He is - He is for me and He is for you! Wow. It's soooo exciting and humbling knowing His unfathomable love! For this post I wanted to share an excerpt from a book by Roy Lessin called "We Have Seen His Glory". The truth about Who God is, that he shares so vividly, just thrills me to pieces!! So -Enjoy!! :O) :O) :O)
"To think upon Jesus opens the door to a vast chamber of thoughts that are praiseworthy. There is not a single thought about Jesus that will bring you regret or embarrassment, and there is not a single remembrance that will bring you shame. There is nothing in His character that brings disappointment, and there is nothing in His nature that brings hurt. Think about His ministry and you find a servant. Think about His wonders and you see the mighty hand of God. Think about His blessings and you discover His compassion. Think about His tenderness and you see His Shepherd's heart.
Think about Jesus' names and your thoughts will lead your heart into ceaseless praise. He is called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, and The Prince of Peace. He is our Banner, Rock, Foundation, High Priest, Redeemer, Deliverer, Healer, Savior, King, Lord, and Master. He is the Bread of Life, The Way, The Truth, The Word, The Dayspring and the Bright and Morning Star. He is the Seed of David, The Lion of Judah, Messiah, The Alpha and Omega - The Lord of all."
"...If anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things!"
Blessings to you this Christmas and New Year - to know that EVERYTHING of Who God is - He is for YOU! He is crazy about you and loves you with more love that you can fathom!
Talk to you next year! ;o)
