Do we really think about how Sovereign and awesome God is? Do we really think about how Holy and powerful He is?
God of the whole universe who is seated on this amazing throne in heaven cares about….US!
I am guilty of not always acknowledging the majesty of God or His Lordship over all things. As a matter of fact I tend to make the problems in my life bigger than God, not only this but I also tend to think about what I am facing more than the ONE whom I must face one day.
As I have been examining myself, I have found that I have been disappointed about the trials that I have had to face in my life. They seem repetitive and constant, which can be down right discouraging. As I was praying last night, the Lord said to me… Even if you never see the manifestation of the things that you have asked of me…would you still follow me?
This question ignited a dormant feeling of love and humility from the depths of my being.
I cried out with massive tears filling my eyes…..Yes God I LOVE YOU from my heart!
I felt as though it was one of my parents essentially asking…Do you love me? Can you trust me?
You see, God…this same Majestic God that is seated on a throne where angels are constantly worshipping Him, thought enough of me, this little woman from Marietta Georgia; to send His Son as a sacrifice to loose me from my bonds and pull me out of a pit, by dying on a bloody cross.
How could I not be touched by this act of sacrifice? How could I not love this God? How could I not follow this God?
This is my public response and declaration to MY God! My loving Father and Savior! My precious Holy Spirit!
Even if I do not see the things I have asked for
Even if I lose all that I have
Even if loved ones walk away
Even if I am persecuted
Even if I walk alone….just you and me
I will follow.
But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. 8More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ,…Philippians 3:7
