Psalm 126:3 The Lord has done great things for us; we are glad.
The call today is to "marvel" at ALL the great things God has done for us.
Are you alive and reading this blog? The Lord has done great things for you so be rejoice and be glad in it because you are yet alive on today.
If we ALL could be honest with ourselves, truly we can say that the Lord HAS and IS still continuing to do great things for us and this is indeed a reason to be glad and joyful.
When we think on the goodness of Jesus and all he has done for us, O how happy we should be!
Woke up this morning walking, breathing, talking, hearing, seeing, feeding your own self, putting your clothes on yourself, got a job to go to on this morning or waiting on the mail man for your retirement check, got transportation to get you to and from daily, got a right mind to serve the Lord and acknowledge Him in all your ways, children are healthy, food on the table, bread in the box, clothes on your back, shoes on your feet,? O how good the Lord is to us!
Because of who the Lord our God is and for ALL He has and continues to do on our behalf and our loved ones, we should rejoice and be glad for the Lord our God is a Good God!
The Lord God has done great things. He redeemed us from the penalty of sin and death, He has given us victory through Christ Jesus, He indwells us with His Holy Spirit to lead, guide and direct us into all truth and righteousness, He imputed His righteousness upon us and calls us "Children of God", He keeps our enemy at bay, He daily supplies all of our needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Psalm 103:2 Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things He does for me.
God has done more than we deserve and He ALWAYS gives us more than we expected.
The Lord our God is a "KEEPER" of His people, He is our very present help in trouble, our hiding place, our shelter in the time of storm, our refuge and our strength when we are weak. THE LORD IS GOOD!
Yes, we all go through hard times. We all have mountain top and valley experiences and often find ourselves wondering will this ever past but in spite of the journey in this life God has been and still is good to us and He is for us.
BE GLAD! The enemy did not have his way with you because God blocked it! Rejoice!
When pain, suffering and sorrow shows it's ugly head, there is medicine and healing in the Word of God for you. Yes, the Word of God is medicine for our souls.
Daily we are to reflect back on where God has brought us from and know without a doubt that if God was able to do this or that back then, He is the same God and He is able to do it again on our behalf.
As the Saints of old would say "when the rubber meets the road" is where our faith has to kick in regardless of what we see with our natural eyes.
God's Word is true! REJOICE! The Lord our God is faithful!
If you are going through a challenging time right now, I pray that this text will speak to your heart this morning.
Let me tell you right upfront, whatever you’re going through, it will get better. God will change your tears to joy. I know it seems hard to believe, but it was hard to believe for the Jews returning to Jerusalem, too but God did it for them. He kept His Word!
Regardless of where we are on today or what we may have arose to this morning. God is still good.
People of God take a look at the past troubles and struggles in life and see how God delivered you from them and now use that past knowledge of God as your energy in knowing that God WILL do it again!
God has a proven record of taking care of His people. Take a look at where you are now and where you have been and you will see the hands of God.
You may not know how or you man not know when but guess what? God will do it again!
REJOICE PEOPLE OF GOD AND BE GLAD!
Thank You Lord for your proven track record concerning our people.
Your Servant Debra
