My buddy Dillon sent me this song the other day and I loved it the first time I heard it but now, after I’ve experienced God a little more these words meant even more. I was walking in my house tonight and just happened to look up. I saw so many stars, yeah I’ve seen stars before but it just hit me that I have this holy connection with the One who created those stars in the sky. WOW!!! The God that created every thing literally loves us so much that He protects us, He works everything for our good, He gives us strength when we don’t have enough to stand, and once again He loves us so so much! It amazes me that God could love such a weak and lowly person like myself, with lusts and evil desires running rampant through my flesh, He still loves just as much as ever. The most beautiful picture of God’s grace, even though we mess up at times, fall into temptations and just plain out fail. Even in the lowest of valleys when we think we are too far gone and all alone, God always reveals Himself to us in the most beautiful ways reminding us of this holy and powerful connection we have with Him. No matter our sin or the failures of yesterday God still loves, and God is so faithful in His love for us, he allows us the chance to come to Him with our struggles and He hears our cries for help. He builds us up, grows us and strengthens us to move past the struggles of our lives, out of what we thought was impossible and into His possible. It amazes me, so often I feel beat down and wrapped up by my weakness, by the failure of my past but His grace brings everything to newness in Him. Despite how we failed yesterday, with God each moment is an opportunity to stand in strength through Him, overcome and be more than we could ever be on our own. His grace erases our past and brings us into His freedom, life and life so abundantly. How amazing is this relationship we have with such a loving God.
He’s so much bigger than us or anything in this world, He is the only reason for our praise. So lift up your hands today, raise your voices and say “Yes I Will.” Praise His name from the pits of your struggle or wherever you are because with God we rest in victory and His strength!!! Thank you Lord for loving us the way you do. I pray that you continue to teach us more and more of your truth, moving us forward past our yesterday’s with your awesome grace into the freedom and victory we have with you today! Grow us, mold us, teach us and strengthen us Lord, we will praise your name so the world can here just HOW GREAT YOU ARE GOD!!!!!!!
“Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.2 This I declare about the LORD : He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him.3 For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease.4 He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.5 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day.6 Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday.7 Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.8 Just open your eyes, and see how the wicked are punished.9 If you make the LORD your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter,10 no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home.11 For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go.12 They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.13 You will trample upon lions and cobras; you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!14 The LORD says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name.15 When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them.16 I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”-Psalm 91
