Praise to God For His Awesome Works! (Psalm 66)

Posted on

Make a joyful shout to God, all the earth!

Sing out the honor of His name

Make His praise glorious.

Say to God, “How awesome are Your works!

Through the greatness of Your power

Your enemies shall submit themselves to You.

All the earth shall worship You

And sing praises to You;

They shall sing praises to Your name.”

Oh, bless our God you Peoples!

And make the voice of His praise to be heard,

Who keeps our soul among the living,

And does not allow our feet to be moved.

For You O God have tested us;

You have refined us as silver is refined

You brought us into the net;

You laid affliction on our backs.

You have caused men to ride over our heads;

We went through fire and through water;



Verses 1-4,8-12 NKJV


Dead or Stronger

Posted on

It is often said, “that whatever doesn’t kill me makes me stronger”.
Yeah, but I still don’t like to deal with or entertain things that seem like they could kill me. I like to play it safe and simple with a touch of drama every now and then of course.  But somehow the killer hurricane finds me.  And every time I think, this has got to be it; I am dead now. As the boisterous wind blows and my boat threatens to capsize.  As I am tossed about like a rag doll,  I can only cry God help me!

There are a lot of possibilities of what might happen, but let us look at these three; The wind does blow the boat over and I end up in the sea or I am tossed so high in the air that I dangle of a tree branch, with the potential of … ending up in the sea. Or the third option, the wind stops and my boat stills while I am in the sea. Either way, if I emerge alive (which I already did), then I am the stronger for it.

Sometimes the storm that so easily threatens us, was sent by God himself. It may have come to purge.purify or perfect His will in our lives.  He is the God that sits on the flood and controls it, according to scripture (God’s holy word). Example Psalm 107:29 (NIV) says “He stilled the storm to a whisper; the wave of the sea was hushed.”  That means this God I serve said to all your issues at the appointed time to “Shut up”!  And when He deems it time, all he has to do is say the word and the once towering and hovering monster wave cowers.  Now I don’t know about you but that sure sounds like power to me.  Why should I waste my time on a god that expects me to do everything for him and then worship him too. Please…

No I can only worship an Entity that wields this kind of power (“You rule over the surging sea; when its waves mount up, you still them” Psalm 89:9 (NIV)).  And not only is He powerful, He says He loves me.  That is sweet and super!

Do not fear the threatening storm that encompasses your weak vessel for He has said;

“Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10)

Seriously; He is God indeed!
