A man is in a great place when he has no one to turn to but God.

From Hebrews 9:24:  “For Christ did not enter a sanctuary made by human hands, a mere copy of the true one, but He entered into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf.”

Trumpeting His Greatness

From Psalm 145:2-3:  “Every day I will bless you, and praise your name forever and ever.  Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; His greatness is unsearchable.”

When you are tempted to take matters into your own hands, remember the Lord’s guidance.

From Isaiah 30:15:  “For thus said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel:  In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.”

Always First

From Exodus 20:1-3:  “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery; you shall have no other gods before Me.”

Through our trials, God works powerfully within us to do more than we can perceive or imagine.

From Ephesians 3:20-21:  “Now to Him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever.  Amen.”

We have to keep letting go, and slowly and surely the great full life of God will invade us in every part, and men will take knowledge of us that we have been with Jesus.

From Romans 6:9-11:  “We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over Him.  The death He died, He died to sin, once for all; but the life He lives, He lives to God.  So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.”

Enduring Presence

From Psalm 139:1-2:  “Lord, you have searched me and known me.  You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from far away.”

Seeking blessed comfort

Father always present

Inescapable God

Filled with Holy intent

 

Praising our faithful Lord

Saving us with His love

Trusting His steady hand

Searching Heaven above

 

God knows all and sees all

Unlike Jonah, we stay

Through morning until night

Come to worship and pray

 

Seeing God’s wondrous works

Enduring presence leads

Counting endless blessings

Protecting tender reeds

 

Changing darkness to light

God saves us from our sins

His grace covers each life

Forgiveness always wins

From Psalm 139:11-12:  “If I say, ‘Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light around me become night,’ even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is as bright as the day, for darkness is as light to you.”

God is God.  He knows what He is doing.  When you can’t trace His hand, trust His heart.

From Psalm 118:8-9:  “It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to put confidence in mortals.  It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.”

God is busy making you someone no one else has ever been.

From Isaiah 119:73-74:  “Your hands have made and fashioned me; give me understanding that I may learn your commandments.  Those who fear you shall see me and rejoice, because I have hoped in your word.”
