Overwhelmed By You

READ:  Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself also in the LORD, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.   


Looking at the beautiful creation - the earth, the sky, the seas - we see all that God created.   Just walking in nature, watching the ocean, smelling the mountain, and looking at flowers can overwhelm us with the Glory of the Lord and all that He is!   (Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made, John 1:3). God is all powerful! 

Have you ever held a tiny baby?  I just recently held my step-daughters newborn son.  How precious and how beautiful.   To think that God planned and saw this little child, formed him in his mother's womb, and breathed life into him is an amazing thing!    Holding him and looking at him - how tiny, how precious and how perfect!  (You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb, Psalm 139:13).  God is wondrous!   

Think of the cross - how God gave His ONE and ONLY Son to give His life for YOU.    Jesus could have called 10,000 angels to come to His rescue... but He stayed obedient to the Father and I believe He saw YOU (and me) as He indured the cross.  (Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God, Hebrews 12:2). God is all loving!   

In that day the Branch of the LORD will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth will be the pride and the adornment of the survivors of Israel. Isaiah 4:2
