“Let each generation tell its children of your mighty acts; let them proclaim your power. I will meditate on your majestic, glorious splendor and your wonderful miracles. Your awe-inspiring deeds will be on every tongue; I will proclaim your greatness.” (Psalm 145:4-6 NLT)
What a beautiful day it is. Do you know why today is such a special day? It’s not because of some grand event in my life or that my child just aced a test he’s been studying for weeks in preparation for, but it is a grand, beautiful day because we are all still breathing and able to praise the Lord! He is great, my friends.
Can you not see it? If you can’t see it just yet, please let me brag about my Maker for a little bit.
He found me and saved me from a life without Him. I found His salvation in Jesus Christ when I was 4 1/2 years old. He was there when no one else could be. He has never left me nor forsaken me, even when I felt He had. His Holy Spirit is living in me, and He talks with me. He loves me and delights in me. (It took me decades to believe it but know I know it!) Nothing I ever do can separate me from His great love for me. When I ask for forgiveness, my Lord forgives my sins, as far as the east is from the west.
And what is most amazing about all of that is this: He will do the same for you! He loves you, yes you!
He will show you so much love you will not even understand or comprehend it. Open your mind and heart to hear His voice; open the Bible and read the book of John. Find Jesus there in the pages of His deep, vast, wide love for you.
It’s so hard to wrap your mind around God’s goodness and His love for us, but spread the good news! He is a God of all miracles--He raised Jesus from the dead! He created the world with the power of His words. Great are his deeds, and with great excitement I love sharing how much He loves you and cares for every detail in your life. I am thankful for the Lord and I am thankful for you.
