Sometimes I get in the tiny little box of my world and what I see around me looks so real and so urgent. I am caught up by the struggles and desires that define my world. In this place, I am easily discouraged and overwhelmed. The storm I face seems to rage without sense or reason, a malevolent hurricane without pity or compassion, bent on sheer destruction.
But then... God. Don't you just love that? Then God. That's all. He doesn't have to do anything or send any special word or gift.
He just IS. He is I AM, and that is more than enough.
When I catch that glimpse of Him or catch the scent of His Presence, I am amazed---struck dumb by His Glory.
He is not bound by my little world and my little thoughts. He is not impressed with the storm I face. I quickly realize that the "hurricane" I saw doesn't compare with the Majesty of Him.
He is SO BIG....immense in His power, immeasurable in His love. How can I fear? He is with me.How can I stand intimidated by people or situations? He is my Helper.
Father God, amaze us again with Your Presence. Open our eyes to Your Glory. You alone are our desire. Fill us with wonder at Your Greatness again.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
