I recently purchased a DVD set called “The Heart of Passion.” In all honesty, these are the first DVDs I’ve purchased, mostly because I don’t have space for clutter. But this purchase was a must. The messages, presented by Louie Giglio, challenge and encourage me to my core.
So far, I’ve watched two of the four programs. Both have presented mind-boggling facts and pictures about the heavens with its stars and galaxies. The messages leave me in awe at the greatness of this God who is powerful enough to speak the heavens into existence and to call the stars by name. The mere thought of what He’s done staggers my imagination. And it leaves me humbled, wondering why I worry about the little things in my life when this God promises to care for me.
In 1 Kings 8:23, Solomon began his prayer with these words: “O LORD, God of Israel, there is no God like you in all of heaven above or on the earth below. You keep your covenant and show unfailing love to all who walk before you in wholehearted devotion.” His prayer echoes my sentiments after watching these DVDs.
Truly there is no God like the Creator of heaven and earth. No one so strong, so majestic, so holy and compassionate. No one so willing to lavish His love on those who place their trust in Him. No one so worthy of our praise and obedience.
I think I’m going to memorize 1 Kings 8:23 and repeat it each morning before I roll out of bed. I can’t imagine a better focus with which to face the day’s challenges than to remember who God is and whose I am. When I’m resting in the hands of this big, big God, there’s nothing I cannot do or face.
The same is true for you, my friend. Do you want to memorize the verse with me?
Have a great weekend!
