I love the way these verses describe the strength of our God and the passionate words that describe the fullness of God in all entirety..
1 Chronicles 16:23-34
"Sing to the Lord, all the earth!
Tell of his salvation from day to day.
Declare his glory among the nations,
his marvelous works among all the peoples!
For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,
and he is to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,
but the Lord made the heavens.
Splendor and majesty are before him;
strength and joy are in his place.
Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength!
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
bring an offering and come before him!
Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness;
tremble before him, all the earth;
yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved.
Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice,
and let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!”
Let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
let the field exult, and everything in it!
Then shall the trees of the forest sing for joy
before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth.
Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
for his steadfast love endures forever!"
Where does our strength come from? Our strength comes from our faith in God and the unwavering hope that everything will workout in our lives because we know that God is going to be the strength that's going to get us through..Don't be afraid of anything in this life.. No one can stop you even if they were to kill you because God is going to make sure that you are taken care of on earth and in Heaven! Death couldn't hold down Jesus..so why would it hold us down? God is going to be with us in every step of our lives..through the good times and the bad times!
Can you imagine all the blessings that you've already received on earth and imagine the much bigger blessings that you'll receive in Heaven? When we get to Heaven, We will have perfect strength because God will give us perfect strength! We will have no more pain or sorrow..only joy and peace! We will have no more stress or discomfort in our lives because we will be with our Father in Heaven!
Can you imagine the beauty of God's face that will be shown to us on that glorious day? Thank God that his strength is perfect until we get to Heaven..I don't know about you but I simply couldn't make it in this world without him!..why would you even want to try to make it on your own? I need Jesus and I'm not ashamed to say that I cannot make it without him in my life everyday! Choose Jesus and choose to live your life more abundantly!
