“If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ.”
How many times do we ask for our own selfish desires from God? Make deals with God? Ask why bad things happen to good people? But how many times do we praise Him for being God?
God, Jesus my Lord and Savior, is the Almighty and He can do all things for all people. He does have a plan for my life. I can remember when I was hopelessly wandering in the desert for that drink of water, which in fact was always there. I was too caught up in the ways of the world to see – praying for things that were important to me until something that I had no control over caught my attention. Then I realized I wasn’t praising God first. Once I went back to thanking God every morning for my life and the wonderful things He has done in my life, I became a new creation in God; and I look forward to the challenges each day brings.
DEAR GOD, YOU ARE AN AWESOME GOD WHO REIGNS FROM HEAVEN ABOVE. LORD, WE GIVE YOU GLORY AND MAJESTY AND PRAISE FOREVER. YOU KNOW ALL MYNEEDS AND WANTS AND YOU HAVE HEARD YOUR PEOPLE’S PRAYERS. MAY WE NEVER FORGET THE ETERNAL LOVE YOU OFFER TO ALL PEOPLE. AMEN.
