    One of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, testing him. 'Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?' Jesus said to him, 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. A second likewise is...

The Awesome God

  • 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 went into the promised land and 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 God and I try to reserve it just for that purpose. Can you use the same words to describe a movie actor that you would to describe the one that created the earth? If you measure everything as a ten out of ten, then you are left with a broken scale.

    Moses was right for God had proved Himself Awesome time after time in their lives. He had sent plagues on Egypt until they released His people (Ex 13:15). He went before them as a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night (Ex. 13:21). He parted the sea so that they could cross safely (Ex. 14:21). He fed them mana from heaven for forty years, and their clothing did not wear out (Neh. 9:21).

    Those are the works of an Awesome God. Remember today 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: 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. I put my trust in You, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Pauline Geraci
Pauline Geraci Today I need an awesome God to help me make the right decision about my dog Tibbs who had a cluster of seizures from a brain tumor.  He is 17 and 1/2 years old and in excellent health except for the tumors.  I know I have to make a decision soon about his quality of life because of the meds he is being put on.  Please Lord help me with my decisions.

Karen Pasquinelli
Karen Pasquinelli I am so sorry Pauline, I know how you feel.  I had a Corgi many years ago who had stomach cancer, he wasn't in pain at the time and they didn't give him meds, but the Vet told me that if he is ever in pain it is time to put him down.  I asked how I would know and the Vet said, you will know.  Many years went by and then one day I knew he was in pain and I had to put him down, we all cried.  I am a firm believer that if the animal is suffering or uncomfortable and there is nothing you can do to help, put him down.  I hope this helps.

Janet Marsh-Lord
Janet Marsh-Lord Hi Pauline. You will get to the point when you know Tibbs can't go on anymore. God will give you the strength and wisdom you need to get through. Having been through a similar situation some years back with my dog Lucy, I can tell you it is one of the hardest things to deal with. But with God by your side you will make the right decision for Tibbs.Love and prayers xx

Norman Glaze Sr My Heart goes out to you Sis. I suppose this might sound terrible of me, but I've lost several family members over the years, and no loss affected me so deeply as losing my Dogs Zeke(Ezekiel) and Zippy(Zipporah). They truly were my Best Friends. I take comfort in believing we see our pets on the other side. Maybe it is silly, but I choose to believe that. I Pray that whatever you decide, that God's Sweet Peace fills your Heart and Mind. In Jesus Name, Amen.
