    When I kept silence, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy on me. My strength was sapped in the heat of summer. Selah. I acknowledged my sin to you. I didn't hide my iniquity. I said, I will confess my transgressions to Yahweh, and you forgave t...

    Sons and Daughters from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. I had a great Dad who always managed to have hope even in the darkest times. I remember once when I was little, the engine in his car began knocking, and he had no money for parts. So he jacked it up in the yard and pulled the oil pan o...

    Seek Yahweh while he may be found. Call on him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts.

Awesome

  • You shall not be scared of them; for Yahweh your God is in the midst of you, a great and awesome God. Deuteronomy 7:21 WEB

    Moses called the Israelites together right before they entered the promised land, and he told them to not be afraid, for the Lord who is in the midst of you, is a great and 'Awesome' God.

    The definition of Awesome: adjective - breathtaking, awe-inspiring, magnificent, wonderful, amazing, stunning, staggering, imposing, stirring, impressive; formidable, fearsome, dreaded; mind-boggling, mind-blowing, jaw-dropping, excellent, marvelous; wondrous. Awesome is the opposite of unimpressive.

    I love the word Awesome; it seems to be one of the few words that I know that can even come close to describing our Heavenly Father, and I try to reserve it just for that purpose. Can you use the same words to describe a movie actor, or a car, that you would to describe the One who created heaven and Earth? If you measure everything as a ten out of ten, then you are left with a broken, meaningless scale.

    Moses was right, for God had proven Himself Awesome time after time in their lives. He had sent miraculous plagues on Egypt until they decided that it would be better for everyone if they released His people from slavery (Exodus 13:15). In the desert, He went before them as a cloud by day to give them shade, and a pillar of fire at night to give them warmth (Exodus 13:21). He parted the sea so that they could cross safely (Exodus 14:21). He fed them mana from heaven for forty years, and their clothing did not wear out (Nehemiah 9:21).

    God is Awesome, so do not fear what may come. Instead remember that our Father is the breathtaking, mind-boggling, mind-blowing, jaw-dropping, Awesome God that created the universe, and He is well able to take care of you.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, Awesome God of heaven and earth, I thank You for being there for me. Please walk with me this day, help me make the right decisions, guide me into all that You have for me here. I put my trust in You today, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen!

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.' (Philippians 4:6-7) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

Pastor, during 1 of the first few Sunday services I attended yrs ago,, you said, "I reserve the word "awesome" for the Lord & try to only use it in reference to Him" & I've never forgotten that & since then, have started doing the same thing  (L)

Praise the Lord for this encouragement today, Pastor Dion! Our God is AWESOME! I loved your point that measuring everything by the same scale produces a broken scale.  My prayer this morning: Lord, walk with me this day, help me make the right decisions, guide me in Your will. Amen

Beautiful word even that God impress us in a way that there are not enough words to describe Him and His greatness, but make us stay with big open eyes as it can be when He does His wonders or when He allows us matchless and beyond comparison experiences with Him.
