The Power of God's Love on The Cross

We have been crucified with Christ, nevertheless we live,
yet it is not us who lives, but it is Christ living in us. Galatians 2:20

In my struggles, I find Your peace,

In my bondage, I find Your release.

In my burdens, I find Your care.

In my loneliness, I find You there.

In my weakness I find You strong,

In my sadness I find Your song.

In my questions I find the answers in You,

In my old ways I find In You ... all things new.

Great is the LORD, and Greatly to be Praised. Psalm 48:1

God is great. God is not only great, but He is the only one who is great. God does not tell us that He is the greatest, because that would mean someone else was great and God was just greater. God has no competition to His greatness. He alone is great and that settles the matter of greatness.

God is great and He will always be great. No one will ever beat Him, outsmart Him, or outthink Him. No one will ever take away His crown, or dethrone Him. God’s greatness will never fade, it will never be weakened, or diminish.

But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:4-7

Because God is great, it means that His love is great, and He loves us more than anyone could ever love us. He greatly loves us today, not because we are great, but because He is great. His great love, loved us when we were in sin, in darkness, and in spiritual death.

What does His great love mean to us? It means that we, who are not great, can pour out upon Him great praise, great worship, great thankfulness, great obedience, great trust, and great devotion.

Romans 1:20

Look deep, deep into nature,

and then you will understand everything better.
~Albert Einstein~

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

When joyful and happy occasions abound it is time to Praise the Lord.

When demanding and complicated issues arise it is the time to seek the Lord.

When concerns occupy your mind it is time to ask the Lord.

In the choices you are considering it is time to follow the Lord.

In the soft, gentle moments that are sweet it is time to see the Lord.

When you feel friendless, abandoned it is time to know the Lord.

When you are listening it is time to hear the Lord.

In the times you are not confident and insecure it is time to believe the Lord.

When you are full of activity it is time to serve the Lord.

When you are waiting for an answer it is time to trust the Lord.

When you have been wounded and upset it is time to touch the Lord.

When your circumstances have been delightful it is time to adore the Lord.

For in all your moments, the Lord is there in goodness, in kindness and in love.
