I love hearing people take time to just praise the Lord for His goodness and mercy. I love listening to people talk about where they were and where God has brought them to. I think that time of praise and worship in this fashion is very encouraging and contagious in that it will inspire others to think about all that God has blessed them with.
I KNOW that God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow and am so thankful for that.
The thing that I love the most about people giving praises to the Lord is when they keep God in the present tense! When they say God IS….
I’m not taking anything away from us when we say God has been, because I do it too, but sometimes I think in the midst of our tears, our heartache and heart break we forgot that God still IS.
Today I want to take a moment just to remind our hearts that God IS….
God IS good
God IS faithful
God IS merciful
God IS gracious
God IS just
God IS loving
God IS kind
God IS giving
God IS all knowing
God IS dependable
God IS orderly
God IS forgiving
God IS infinite
God IS Holy
God IS sovereign
God IS wise
God IS comfort
God IS our Father
Your turn. Right here, right now in your present circumstances – What IS God to you?
Will you take a moment to encourage everyone who is hurting, who is missing a prodigal, who is grieving over a loved one that has moved on, who is discouraged from being beat up by the world by telling us who God IS to you?
Are you the artsy type? Journal something and take a photo and tweet it to me and I’ll embed it here so that others can be encouraged by it.
Christian is your heart hurting? Remember GOD IS
Is the stress of a financial burden weighing you down? Remember GOD IS
Do you wonder if your prodigal will ever return? Remember GOD IS
