May 1, 2015 – Zephaniah 9:6

Zephaniah9-6You are the LORD, you alone. You have made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them; and you preserve all of them; and the host of heaven worships you. Zephaniah 9:6The Thesaurocity of God comes from recognizing Who God is.  He is the LORD, alone.  He has created and preserved all things.  The host of Heaven worships Him.  He loves steadfastly.  His wings give all those ever born refuge in the shadow of His Wings.  We feast on the food of His House.  We drink from the River of Delights.  He is the fountain of our life.  He is Light, and in His Light, we see in the darkness.Layer upon layer — the complexity of God and his love provides gifts of mystery and wonder to those who love Him and hear Him.  His love wraps us up in abundant cover of Grace in a cold world.The Lord will Provide (Genesis 22:14), The Lord Who Heals (Exodus 15:26), The Lord our Banner (Exodus 17:15), The Lord Who Makes Holy (Leviticus 20:8, Ezekiel 37:28), The Lord our Peace (Judges 6:24), The Lord God (Genesis 2:4; Psalm 59:5), The Lord our Righteousness (Jeremiah 33:16), The Lord our Shepherd (Psalm 23:1), The Lord is There (Ezekiel 48:35), The Lord of Hosts (Isaiah 1;24; Psalm 46:7), Most High (Deuteronomy 26:19), God of Seeing (Genesis 16:13), Everlasting God (Psalm 90:1-3), Mighty God (Isaiah 9:6).God has many attributes and yet his essence is the most precious of all. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.  I John 4:8. How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.  Psalm 36:7. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?  Romans 8:31. So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. I John 4:16.How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light. Psalm 36:7-9
