Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee.

Worshipping God for who He is, not for what He Can Give Us

When I meditate on God’s love and His works towards men, words fail me.

God is good. God is just good.

He remains good even when the world has lost it’s whole damn mind (touch of humanity).

His patience and long-suffering towards men baffles me. I mean, if I created people and they turned out as we can see them today (constant irritants, nuisance, and trouble), I would just snap my finger and rid of them— immediatamente!

But thank God I am not God! Somebarry say Hallelujah!

And thank God that He is a Father. And therefore, looks at us —mainly— not just as His creation, but as those He loves, His very own children — created in His likeness and image —

And I believe this is the reason why He deals so patiently and lovingly with each and every one of us.

This being said, everyday —by the help of the Holy Spirit— I, now gain a deeper insight and understanding of who He is, what He has done for me, and what He intends to do for me —still—

Everyday, I develop a greater appreciation of His love, mercy, grace and unfailing kindness as I observe the evil in the world with a sense of somewhat wondering how God still allows all this mess to persist even to the present time.

But God somehow, is able to bring beauty out of the ashes we make as a world and this is —in all situations—

And as a result, my worship over time, has transitioned from a Sunday-day kind of experience and encounter to a daily walk with God. A wrestling with Him on some days, a ranting to Him on other days, and a laughing with Him on most days…

A love story between two sweethearts who enjoy being in each other’s company always. Because as I converse with my Lord on life issues, He communes with me, and He leads and directs me on every step to take.

We are like one person, only, He is beyond my finding out. There is nothing I cannot tell Him, there is no secret I keep from Him. He knows me inside-out and I wouldn’t wanna have it any other way. Because never at any one point does He guilt trip or condemn me when I fall or fail.

We even have our own inside jokes, in that, when I ponder about them, I marvel at Him —at the same time— wondering how the creator of the universe could have such a deep sense of humor.

We are friends. Truly, He is my darling Lord, and I am the apple of His eye.

Jeremiah 31:3 The Lord appeared to him from afar, saying, "I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness.

My relationship with God has transformed, changed and impacted me in a way I can never recover and would never even want to recover. He is all I think about – and I love that thoughts of Him consume my mind because I have discovered that in them, I am always at peace. He makes me smile from my heart all day, everyday, even when I have nothing to smile for or about.

Jesus Girl

Isaiah 26

3 You will keep him (her) in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You: because he (she) trusts in You.

Living in a generation where men and women are accustomed to worshipping God as a means to an end, it is refreshing to discover that God can be worshipped simply for who He is and for the beauty of His holiness. And for me, there is no other deeper communion than that.

It is true that God is rich in goods because they all belong to Him. The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts— (Haggai 2:8) The earth is the Lord’s and it’s fullness thereof and all who dwell therein —(Psalms 24:1). And He can give them to whosoever He pleases. Yet, I derive most satisfaction in worshipping Him simply for His nature; because He never changes. Silver and gold will pass away, but God’s nature and His Word will never pass away.

Psalms 96

1 O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth.
2 Sing unto the LORD, bless His name; show forth his salvation from day to day.
3 Declare His glory among the heathen, His wonders among all people.
4 For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: He is to be feared above all gods.
5 For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.
6 Honour and majesty are before Him: strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.
7 Give unto the LORD, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength.
8 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto His name: bring an offering, and come into His courts.
9 O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth.
10 Say among the heathen that the LORD reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: He shall judge the people righteously.
11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.
12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice
13 Before the LORD: for He cometh, for He cometh to judge the earth: He shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.

Give thanks / worship the Lord— all the earth for He is good: because His mercy endures for ever. — Psalms 118:1

How I would that men could truly taste and see that the Lord is good. How I would that men would stop all the sideshows and circus-antics (especially in church) and come to God just as they are — with their hearts and will—

How I would, how I would…. because only then, would they begin to experience an intimacy not known, experienced or even perceived by any man.

Matthew 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

Okay… Let’s just be honest, whenever most people hear anything about religion, their first reaction and instinct is probably to cringe or brush off the whole matter entirely.

Why? Most likely because it is a subject that is associated with extreme cases of fanaticism, it brings about a lot of conflicts and controversies, and even offends easily.

Religion is famously known for: manipulation, stagnation, repression, ignorance, bigotry and is too often a threat to liberty. And rightly so. I do agree. With that said, I recommend you to read two of my posts as well as encourage you to do a personal, extensive, and honest research on your own regarding this matter. Why?

As intellectuals (critical thinkers), I believe we owe it to ourselves to interrogate, examine, and ask hard questions regarding matters touching on faith rather than choosing to ignore them or even worse— follow blind faith. Click here for the first post.

Who speaks the truth with regards to a genuine, sincere and true relationship with God? Is it Buddha? Muhammad? Jesus? Zoroaster? Confucius? Joseph Smith? Guru Nanak? Krishna? Among others? Find out on this second post:

Why Jesus Stands Out

My heart overflows with a goodly matter; I speak the things which I have made touching the king: My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. Psalms 45:1
