Believing the Promises of God - in His Word

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed… Without weakening in his faith… Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. ~ Romans 4 [selected 18-21]

Our AMAZING God


Joshua 3:5
5 Joshua told the people, "Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do amazing things among you."

I encourage you to read all of Job 38 - as the Lord speaks - and shows how amazing He is... here's just a glimpse of His Hand.

Job 38 - selected
The LORD Speaks

1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the storm. He said:
2 "Who is this that darkens My counsel
with words without knowledge?
3 Brace yourself like a man;
I will question you, and you shall answer Me.
4 "Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation? Tell me, if you understand.
5 Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it?
6 On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone-
7 while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?
12 "Have you ever given orders to the morning, or shown the dawn its place... 18 Have you comprehended the vast expanses of the earth? Tell me, if you know all this.
19 "What is the way to the abode of light? And where does darkness reside?
20 Can you take them to their places? Do you know the paths to their dwellings?
21 Surely you know, for you were already born! You have lived so many years! 33 Do you know the laws of the heavens? Can you set up God's dominion over the earth?
34 "Can you raise your voice to the clouds and cover yourself with a flood of water?
35 Do you send the lightning bolts on their way? Do they report to you, 'Here we are'?
36 Who endowed the heart with wisdom or gave understanding to the mind?
37 Who has the wisdom to count the clouds?


YOU AMAZE ME [song by Michael Neale]
The stars dance
The Moon glows
And I see You
When the winds blow
The mountains applaud You
And the oceans reflect You
The power of Heaven
Revealed in creation
And my heart shouts out
At the wonder of Your Name

You amaze
You amaze me
And my heart bows down before
The King of Glory
You amaze me
You amaze me
And I'm overwhelmed by Your
Great love and mercy
You amaze me

The sun burns
At morning
Revealing Your glory
The darkness is silenced
At the thunder of Your Presence
The power of Heaven
Revealed in redemption
And my heart shouts out at the
Wonder of Your Grace!


All we can do is thank God for His AMAZING love, power, grace and mercy!

Choosing JOY,

Stephanie
