Our Awesome God
In our culture, God’s name is oftentimes mentioned with little reverence. In fact, many people actually use it as a curse. Even among those who love Him, it is far too common to use His name casually, without taking time to ponder who He is. When you say a blessing at mealtimes, for instance, do you realize that you are talking to the almighty Creator God who rules over all things?
Our view of the Lord impacts three areas of life. First, it affects our prayers. As we come to know Him better and better, our desires will start to look like His goals for us, and our petitions will align more closely with His purposes. Furthermore, as we recognize His greatness and power, we’ll become more confident that He can accomplish mighty things—and we will venture to “pray big.”
Second, our understanding of His righteousness and goodness influences our behavior. If God has these attributes, surely it is in our best interest to obey gladly. We will desire righteousness and be quick to repent of sin.
Third, our faith is impacted. Grasping that Jesus is holy, good, and powerful grows our trust in Him. Knowing our awesome God and remembering His great works will further build our confidence in Him.
Do you personally know our loving and holy heavenly Father? He invites you into an intimate relationship with Him. But, as with any good friendship, time and intentionality are necessary to understand Him and learn His ways. The more you do that, the more your prayers, behavior, and faith will be impacted.

My Dear Friend:
How are you?
I just had to send you this letter to tell
you how much I love and care about you.
I saw you yesterday as you were walking with your friends.
I waited all day, hoping that soon you’d
want me to walk along with you, too.
As evening drew near, I painted you a sunset to close your day
and whispered a cool breeze to refresh you,
and I waited, You never came.
Oh yes, it hurt Me, but I just kept on loving you.
As I watched you fall asleep last night,
I longed to touch your brow.
I spilled moonlight upon your face,
trickling down your cheeks as so many tears have.
Again I waited, but you didn’t even think of me.
I wanted so much to rush down so we could talk.
I have so many gifts for you.
The next day I exploded a brilliant sunrise
into glorious morning for you.
But you awakened late and rushed off for the day.
You didn’t even notice Me.
My sky became cloudy and my tears were the rain.
Oh, how I LOVE YOU!
Today you looked so sad and so alone.
It makes my heart ache because I understand.
My friends let Me down and hurt Me many times too.
Oh, if you’d only listen.
I really LOVE you.
I try to say it in the quiet of the green meadow
and in the vibrant blue sky.
The wind whispers my love throughout the treetops and
spills it into the vivid colors of all the flowers.
I shout it to you in the in the thunder
of the great waterfalls, in mountain streams,
and I compose love songs for birds to sing for you.
I warm you with the clothing of my warm sunshine
and perfume the air with nature’s sweet scent.
My love for you is deeper than any ocean
and greater than the biggest want or need you may have.
If you’d only realize how much I really care.
We will spend eternity together in heaven.
I know how hard it is on earth.
I know because I was once there.
I really want to help you.
My Father cares for you and wants to help you, too.
Fathers are just that way. So please, call on me soon.
Just call Me, ask Me, talk to Me. It is your decision.
I have chosen you. No matter how long it takes,
I’ll wait forever because I LOVE YOU!
Your friend, Jesus
~Food For Thought~
It is so easy to get discouraged and frustrated
when everything seems to go wrong.
But we shouldn’t lose heart,
because God is always at work in our lives,
even in the midst of pain and suffering, Paul wrote,
“I have learned the secret of being content
in any and every situation, whether well
fed or hungry, whether living in plenty
or in want.” (Philippians 4:12).
Paul had confidence that good would come out of
everything to those who love God, (Romans 8:28),
so he learned to be thankful, not bitter,
even during the times of his suffering.
Try to remember the next time your little
hut is burning to the ground …
it may actually just be a smoke signal
that summons the Grace of God.
ay there always be work for your hands to do;
May your purse always hold a coin or two;
May the sun always shine on your windowpane;
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;
May the hand of a friend always be near you;
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you!
