I can truly say there is no greater joy than knowing my Lord. When I was 17 and prayed Philippians 3:7-8, that I KNOW Christ and the POWER of HIS Resurrection, I had no idea God was setting me on a life long journey. However, that's why today, 39 years later, my spirit still soars as if it were Christ's and my first date.
As I read saiah 33 today, I circled in purple (which I always do) each of the ways in which the Lord reveals Himself. Celebrate with me!
2 Gracious, Salvation
5 eXalted, Dwells on High, Justice, Righteousness
6 Stability of Your Times, Wealth of Salvation, Wisdom, and Knowledge
16 Impregnable Rock
17 King in Beauty
21 Majestic One
22 Judge, Lawgiver, King
24 Forgiver of My Iniquity
Go back and meditate on each of God's depictions of Himself. Let me know which one most blesses or encourages you today. My favorite for today? Stability of Your Times. Is that not cool? As I read that depiction of God in Isaiah 33:6, my mind immediately raced to yesterday's paper. "Lifeless Dow slides below 7000 points." "Stock prices in the U.S. are at their lowest in 12 years as worldwide conditions worsen."
Yes, friends, our economy may not be stable, BUT OUR GOD IS. All praise to Him! Can I hear a shout of "Amens" on that?
