As I approach this Thanksgiving, I find myself immersed in a whole new level of gratefulness and, with that, a whole new level of praise to God for His many blessings in my life.
I talked to someone yesterday who was telling me about how God healed her. She said there’s no way she could ever sing praise songs the same way; the lyrics have become very real to her because her experience with her Savior is so real.
I get that. When we have a genuine encounter with the living God, everything else comes alive – even our worship.
Lately, I’ve been really enjoying the song, The Lion and the Lamb.
“He’s roaring with power, and fighting my battles.”
That’s one of my favorite lines because it reminds me of the awesomeness of God and His power to save. I have this visual of Him as a mighty warrior, coming to the rescue of those who are calling for help.
No matter what we may face, let’s take heart and be encouraged to know we serve a great God.
Nothing is too big for Him! Nothing is too difficult! Nothing is impossible!
Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? Jeremiah 32:37
The Lord who rules over all has planned it. Who can stop him? He has reached out his powerful hand. Who can keep him from using it? Isaiah 14:27
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
And one of the elders said to me, “Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.” Revelation 5:5
For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of living water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Revelation 7:17
