Are you making time to not only acquaint yourself with, but to sincerely have an intimate relationship with your Abba God?
Have you discovered the peace, sufficiency, strength, sovereignty, love, healing, and mercy...the attributes and essence of your Maker?
Do you trust in His omniscience, receiving His grace and endurance when you run to Him, your Strong Tower of Strength?
Do you grasp how He planned your existence long ago and loves you so dearly that He provided the most holy and atoning sacrifice - HIS SON - so that you may be reconciled fully unto Him, sealed in His Book of Life?
Do you know that He is The God of all comfort, who lingers over the deepest desires of your heart; that He longs to work things together for your good, according to His Will for you in Christ?
Do you understand that He is the Most High, All-knowing, All-seeing, Self-sufficient, Healer, Provider, Banner, Sanctifier, Peace, Shepherd, Protector, and Lord over all, who is ALWAYS THERE?
If you knew Him more deeply would you approach The Throne of Grace with more confidence and trust in His Will? Would your faith, therefore, be unshakeable? Would you have peace that surpasses all understanding, regardless of your circumstances, because you know your God?
Oh, friends, let us seek Him with an insatiable desire so that we may more fully understand our LORD, and praise the inexhaustible abundance and omniscience of our Holy Father! That in Him, we may thrive and glorify Him...as we are made more fully complete into His likeness. For, from Him and through Him are ALL things, and all glory is to Him, forevermore!
...for he views the ends of the earth
and sees everything under the heavens.
This is what the Lord says—your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb:
I am the Lord, the Maker of all things, who stretches out the heavens, who spreads out the earth by myself...
You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
you, Lord, know it completely.
God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways;
he does great things beyond our understanding.
Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!
“Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?”
“Who has ever given to God, that God should repay them?”
For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
