God is GREAT

i started a prayer journal with all my new ambitions with prayer.  it has been so amazing to see with my own blue eyes answered prayer.  today i was even able to witness a full blown miracle happen in my prayer journal.  God is good.  ALL THE TIME!  He still makes miracles happen. 

from A.W. Tozer:  Omnipotence is not a name given to the sum of all power, but an attribute of a personal God whom we Christians believe to be the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ and of all who believe on Him to life eternal.  The worshiping man finds this knowledge a source of wonderful strength for his inner life.  His faith rises to take the great leap upward into the fellowship of Him who can do whatever He wills to do, for whom nothing is hard or difficult because He possesses power absolute.  Since He has at His command all the power of the universe, the Lord God omnipotent can do anything as easily as anything elseAll His acts are done without effort.  He expends no energy that must be replenished.  His self-sufficiency makes it unnecessary for Him to look outside of Himself for a renewal of strength.  All the power required to do all that He wills to do lies in undiminished fullness in His own infinite being.  (Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy, 73)

how awesome is that?!  how awesome is MY GOD!  God IS good.  ALL THE TIME!

here's another nice one.  this time from Isaac Watts:  When we consider his nature, we stand afar off from him as creatures from a God, for he is infinitely superior to us.  When we speak of his attributes a great acquaintance seems to grow between God and us, while we tell him that we have learned something of his power, his wisdom, his justice and his mercy.  But when we proceed to mention the many works of his hands, by which he has tangibly revealed himself to our understanding, we seem to approach yet nearer to God.  (Watts, A Guide to Prayer, 13)

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
