God is awesome! He gets a bad rap from some people but I believe with all my heart that He is awesome. He is always awesome even when I don’t see it or when I don’t understand what’s happening to me. My troubles and my sorrows don’t change God. They don’t diminish Him. They don’t belittle Him. He diminishes my troubles and He removes them. When I get into His presence, my sorrows disappear and the pain dwindles. I have to stay grounded in the truth that God is always awesome. It is a powerful truth that tells the enemy to back down, so to speak. Today I want to encourage you to tell the enemy to be quiet and back down because your God is awesome all the time. He is awesome right now as you are reading this and He will be awesome later long after you are done reading this message. The message is clear; God is awesome and He can make everything awesome. He has the power to do the most incredible and the most amazing things ever. “Awesome” actually doesn’t pay Him justice but it is one of our human ways that best describe Him. Have a great day with our awesome God. Expect awesome today. Expect God all day.
When I look back and reflect on my life, I can testify and say that God is awesome. I wouldn’t be where I am now if He weren’t awesome. He is awesome because He gave His Son for us and let the perfect sacrifice take place. He redeemed our sins, by His stripes we were healed and He bought life back. Death was our destiny. Spiritual death was our final destination but thanks to Jesus, life is what we can expect. Eternal life through Christ is the most exciting thing ever. I think about it often. I should spend more time meditating on it. I do thank the Lord for it every day. I thank Him for His awesomeness. Do you ever thank the Lord for being awesome? The more you do it, the more you will see what awesome means. He will give you many reasons to thank Him for being awesome. He will give you a new slate. He will wipe away your sins. He will wipe away your tears. He will wash away fear and doubt. He will transform you and transform your world. God can do all things. God can do awesome things. Be ready to see what awesome looks like. Let your level of expectancy increase.
There is so much beauty around me all the time. I see it in nature, in the people I know, in the situations I encounter. God infuses beauty everywhere and we can perceive His beauty when we have the right mindset and when our eyes of faith are wide-open. God sees us all as beautiful people. That makes Him awesome. A person can have the ugliest heart, God will still love him or her and see beauty in that person. He knows how that person can be restored. He knows the amazing and beautiful potential in all of us. He is the best friend we can have because He loves unconditionally. When people make you feel rejected or not wanted, remember that God is so awesome that He will never, ever reject you. He will do anything to bless you and fix you when you are broken. God is also awesome because He is faithful. He keeps His promises. His faithfulness combined with our faith produces awesome miracles. Stay in faith. Thank the Lord for being awesome. God is always awesome!
