The time changed here in the US – Day Light Saving Time. Honestly I wish they would just leave it the way it should be … I’m ‘thankful’ that God does not change – He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow; nor shift His priorities, but that He is the great I AM. You ever stop and think really how great that is? We humans are constantly shifting and changing but not Him.
As I set here smelling the coffee perking on the stove, listening to the steady breaths of 3 dogs lying around my feet, watching the sun rise in the East, I know that He is in control of every second, of everyday. The sun rises and sets because He ordained it. The very fact that my coffee is perking on the stove is due to His cause and effect. I’m ‘thankful’ that wherever I am, at that point in time, I have access to Him. My prayer bench a lot of the time is here at the computer. Instead of worn places from knees, it’s worn places from elbows. Gazing out at a night that is fluid black or in the morn when the sun is burning the mist away. The tears fall, my heartaches, my joy overflows, my understanding grows … the WORD is read, studied, mused over, absorbed, His praises are sung and thru it all I walk closer to my Lord and Savior.
From The Starry Firmament on High by Robert Grant:
The starry firmament on high,
And all the glories of the sky,
Yet shine not to Thy praise, O Lord,
So brightly as Thy written Word.
The hopes that holy Word supplies,
Its truths divine and precepts wise,
In each a heavenly beam I see,
And every beam conducts to Thee.
Almighty Lord, the sun shall fail,
The moon forget her nightly tale,
And deepest silence hush on high,
The radiant chorus of the sky.
But, fixed, for everlasting years,
Unmoved amid the wreck of spheres,
Thy Word shall shine in cloudless day,
When Heaven and earth have passed away.
I’m THANKFUL that:
God is “Holy Sovereign.” His Holiness expresses the sum total of all God is. His Sovereignty expresses the absolute rulership of God above everything and everyone else. He is under no external constraints!~~ Isa. 46:5,9,10; Zech. 9:14; 1 Tim. 6:16-17.
God is “Creator.” The Bible declares God is responsible for the creation of everything that exists anywhere. It also says that He keeps all things running properly, He sustains it. ~~ Ps. 136:5-9; Isa. 40:25-26, 44:24, 45:12; Jere. 5:22, 10:12, 51:15-16; Dan. 5:23; Acts 17:24-26; Heb. 1:1.
God is “Omnipotent.” He has the ability to do anything and everything He wishes that is not contrary to His nature. ~~ Gen. 18:14; Psa. 33:9-11, 93:4; Isa. 40:26, 46:10; Jere. 32:17; Matt. 19:26; Luke 1:37; Rom. 1:19-20; Rev. 19:6.
