Our Hallelujah’s ring out. What a resounding thunder of praise! We are because He is! It was He who created us! What is seen was made from the unseen. What is tangible and received was not there prior. With hope, hard work and faithing it, it is! GLORY to GOD, it is! We pray and we ask when trials come, but do we then believe in the possibility of God? Why? When things are ‘rosy,’ do we remember God? I will ask politely, have you thanked God today? Why? Uhh! You woke up! You can read/listen to this sharing, essentially you have received a gift today- One more day! Something to be grateful for? Give thanks, even for the adversity that faces you. Why? How will you overcome this? Trust Him with your all, your whole self. To God alone we turn to when matters seem insurmountable. So, learn to thank Him when times are good; praise Him through the awesome. You will find the Hallelujah when you are in times of need, they will flow from You! Recollect, “Give thanks in ALL things.” — 1 Thessalonians 5:18, Psalm 34:1, Psalm 86:12
The Bible is full of praise of and to God. Here are a couple of verses gathered to remind you of our great God.
We proclaim how great you are and tell of the wonderful things you have done. Psalm 75:1
Praise the Lord, all people on earth, praise His glory and might. 1 Chronicles 16:28
God is wise and powerful! Praise him forever and ever. Daniel 2:20
Sing to the LORD! Praise the LORD! He rescues the oppressed from the power of evil people. Jeremiah 20:13
Let us praise God for his glorious grace, for the free gift He gave us in His dear Son! Ephesians 1:5
One of my favorite books in The Bible is the book of Job. To have pretty much all — a wife, children, property, land… and it be taken away in rapid succession? It is not difficult to see why he was advised to ‘let go.’ But, He knew Who made him. He had, and currently it was no more. Even if the book was ‘tampered’ with, it still tells a story that is consistent with our God Who never changes or fails to be What He is- LOVE!
“God is not human, that He should lie, not a human being, that He should change His mind, Does He speak and then not act? Does Hecpromise and not fulfill?” Numbers 23:19
“Every good and perfect gift is from above,coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8
To share secrets of The Word which are widely known, frequently used but little understood, cheek these out from the book of Job:
16 reasons the book of Job is so relevant to our everyday!
The LORD gave, and the Lord has taken away, blessed be The name of the LORD. Job 1:21
As long as my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils, my lips will not speak falsehood, and my tongue will not utter deceit. Job 27:3-4
He sets on high those who are lowly, and those who mourn are lifted to safety. Job 5:11
Behold, blessed is the one whom God reproves, therefore despise not the discipline of the Almighty. For He wounds, but He binds up, He shatters, but His hands heal. Job 5:17-18
Then Job answered The LORD and said: I know that You can do all things, and that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted. Job 42:1-2
And he said to the human race, “The fear of the Lord—that is wisdom, and to shun evil is understanding.” Job 28:28
As we have shared, The Word is one. Proverbs 9:10 says: “The fear of The Lord is the beginning of wisdom and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”
What does it mean to “fear the Lord” and why is this fear the beginning of wisdom? What is “wisdom”? Who IS “the Holy One” and why is knowledge of Him “understanding”?
I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last He will stand upon the Earth. Job 19:25
Do you give the horse his might? Do you clothe his neck with a mane? Do you make him leap like the locust? His majestic snorting is terrifying. He paws in the valley and exults in his strength, Hebxgoes out to meet the weapons. He laughs at fear and is not dismayed, he does not turn back from the sword. Upon him rattle the quiver, the flashing spear, and the javelin. With fierceness and rage he swallows the ground, he cannot stand still at the sound of the trumpet. Job 39:19-24
Agree with God, and be at peace, thereby good will come to you. Receive instruction from his mouth, and lay up his words in your heart. Job 22:21-22
The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life. Job 33:4
And the Lord said to Satan, Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, who fears God and turns away from evil? Job 1:8
He who withholds kindness from a friend forsakes the fear of the Almighty. Job 6:14
Behold, you have instructed many, and you have strengthened the weak hands. Your words have upheld him who was stumbling, and you have made firm the feeble knees. Job 4:3-4
Behold, God is mighty, and does not despise any, He is mighty in strength of understanding. Job 36:5
You clothed me with skin and flesh, and knit me together with bones and sinews. You have granted me life and steadfast Love, and Your care has preserved my spirit.
As for me, I would seek God, and to God would I commit my cause, who does great things and unsearchable, marvelous things without number. Job 5:8-9
