December 2, 2016 – I Chronicles 16:34-35
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever. Cry out, “Save us, O God of our salvation! Gather and rescue us from among the nations, so we can thank your holy name and rejoice and praise you.” I Chronicles 16:34-35Who is He who answers when I call? Who is there in the time of need? And when I get weak who gives me His strength? Who else but God, who else but God! Tye Tribbett.Have you ever asked these questions when faced with the ‘big’ things like separation in death or debilitating disease – life threatening moments, when there seems to be no hope? This is when we need the steadfast love and forgiveness from our Lord God. He is the only one who gives Hope with a capital H.No one on the earth is worthy of the Adoration and Praise, except the One who raises us from the depths of despair to the Glorious Wonder of His Love.Jehovah Jireh, Everlasting Father, Our Provider, we are just a heart-beat away from being with our Lord! When we connect with Him – through His Word and the Gift of the Holy Spirit – we have made a connection for life. Life with God, is a relationship forever and begins today. It is up to us. Why wait to choose Him?
Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. Philippians 2:3-8.
His birth is our Celebration of Christmas. God is Good and God is Love! Praise the Lord!!! Amen and Amen!
Praise the Lord, the God of Israel, who lives from everlasting to everlasting! And all the people shouted “Amen!” and praised the Lord. I Chronicles 16:36
