Animated with anticipation
It’s early, I’m here in my office (my usual early morning routine), praying over my notes for this mornings service @ Destiny Family Center… animated with anticipation! Life has never been this good for me!
Sure, there are a few situations I would fix right now if I could, but I’m POSITIVE God is working on all of those things… and my FAITH has never been SOARING THIS HIGH! My life has never been this SOLID… never been this FIRM on the foundation of God living word!
Its more than a fad
Way back in 1991, when I first dedicated my whole heart and life to Jesus… almost everyone assumed that GOD was a phase I was going through… a new fad, like bowling, or skateboarding, or skiing, etc. And here I am 19 years later… more in LOVE with God than EVER?
God has never let me down
God has been so faithful to me… even when I was not so faithful to him! He carried me on his wings during those times when I could not go on another day! He’s defended me ten thousand times! Every time the enemy came in like a flood, the spirit of the Lord has risen a standard against him, and every tongue that’s been risen against me HAS BEEN CAST DOWN!
Isaiah 54:17 But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the Lord; their vindication will come from me. I, the Lord, have spoken!
There is a fire
God has spoken to me through his written word and his indwelling Spirit, 10 times a day for 19 years: that’s 69,350 times!!
I KNOW HIM! I know how much he loves me! I know how well he can be trusted to keep EVERY COVENANT PROMISE! When I do my part, he ALWAYS does his! Even when I fail to do my part… his MERCY still gives me the things I do not deserve!
His fire is burning white hot within me this morning… this flame of love between God and me! And this fire is not a passing flash from my youthful zeal… it’s a zeal based in knowledge and experience… not an emotional sensation, but a spiritual POSITION! Get what I’m saying? I know you do! (smile)
Psalm 70:4 But may all who search for you be filled with joy and gladness in you. May those who love your salvation repeatedly shout, “God is great!”
Psalm 106:1-2 Praise the Lord! Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever. Who can list the glorious miracles of the Lord? Who can ever praise half enough?
This is the way I feel today! Like I cannot praise my heavenly Father half enough! I want to just keep shouting… all day long until I lose my voice, “God is great! God is great! God is great!”
Happy Sunday everyone… I do hope this blog will help you get your praise on! May today be a day of great celebration. For every ONE thing going wrong there are thousands of things going right for you and me! Who can ever praise him HALF ENOUGH for all he’s done and doing and going to do in our lives!
Have a most triumphant day! I love you all! Here’s a song for the moment: Hillsong, God is Great!
Dream Big, Live Bold, and Make the Difference!
