Words For Courageous Living


God is God. As I was leaving the office a few days ago, a man approached me on the sidewalk. It was not long before he made that statement. "God is Good". We have heard it said, God is good all the time, and all the time God is good. I like that. BUT, sometimes when we are down instead of up it is really hard to live or accept that statement as true. But, my friend, it is in times such as that that we must hang on to that statement.

God is so awesome. To think that he is conscious of me is also awesome, huh? How can we describe God?

I read once of 6 blind men in front of an elephant. They were told to touch the elephant and give a description. Each touched a different part. To one man, the elephant was like a tree; to another like a wall; to a third like a fan; a fourth, like a snake; a fifth, like a spear and to the sixth - like a rope.

Obviously, it all depended upon what part of the elephant they touched, whether the leg, side, ear, trunk or tusk or tail.

The article concluded that all were right, but each was wrong. So, in the discussion of God - and how great and how good and how majestic He is, it takes all aspects of God to get a complete picture of Him. Still, in each aspect of the total "personality" of God we can be touched at our point of need.

"For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome..." Deut. 10:17

My prayer for you

Truly, God we praise your name. How great is our God. How great is your name. I ask, in the name of Jesus, that this one shift into your greatness even amid a difficult situation. May you touch them, even as they read, at their point of need. Mercy, Lord Jesus.
