Today Reminder - 31 May 2012 (Awesome)

My prayer for you for today is that you will realise that our God is greater than what our worldly imaginations can ever imagine and that you will see His hand working in your life, in Jesus name.

Hebrews 12:19-21
For they heard an awesome trumpet blast and a voice so terrible that they begged God to stop speaking. They staggered back under God's command: "If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned to death." Moses himself was so frightened at the sight that he said, "I am terrified and trembling."

Awesome - Moses himself was so frightened at the sight. This morning it is once again my privilege to remind you how great our God is. He is the maker of the universe, all creation came into being by the power of His word. How small are we compared to the creator and how small are we compared to His majesty. When God spoke to the Israelites at Mount Sinai, they begged Him to stop only at the fright of the sound of His voice. They did not even see Him yet, they only heard His voice and they were frightened and terrified. It is this amazing loving Father that seeks your time and your worship and He loves you unconditionally and believes in you with every step that you take. This awesome God who humbled Himself and became a man to rescue us from eternal death, He stands beside you waiting and listening and walking with you all the way. 

Be careful that you do not refuse to listen to the One who is speaking. For if the people of Israel did not escape when they refused to listen to Moses, the earthly messenger, we will certainly not escape if we reject the One who speaks to us from heaven! When God spoke from Mount Sinai his voice shook the earth, but now he makes another promise: "Once again I will shake not only the earth but the heavens also." This means that all of creation will be shaken and removed, so that only unshakable things will remain. Since we are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe. For our God is a devouring fire (Verse 25 – 29).

When God speaks the earth shakes, when God moves in you the world will shake. My dear friend, our God is more than we can estimate, guess, dream, think, imagine or even calculate. He is, was and will always be. 

The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display His craftsmanship.  Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make Him known.  They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard.  Yet their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world. How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart?  Cleanse me from these hidden faults. Keep your servant from deliberate sins! Don't let them control me. Then I will be free of guilt and innocent of great sin.  May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer (Psalm 119)

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
