If there are words for Him then I don’t have them. 
You see, my brain has not yet reached the point where it could form a thought that could adequately describe the greatness of my God,
and my lungs have not yet developed the ability to release a breath with enough agility to breathe out the greatness of his love,
and my voice, you see, my voice, is so inhibited, restrained by human limits that it’s hard to even sing the praise of…  You see,
if there are words for Him then I don’t have them. 
My God, his grace is remarkable,
mercies are enumerable,
strength is impenetrable.
He is honorable, accountable, favorable.
He is unsearchable yet knowable,
indefinable yet approachable,
indescribable yet personal.
He is beyond comprehension,
further than imagination,
constant thru generations,
king of every nation.
But if there are words for Him then I don’t have them.
You see, my words are few,
and to try to capture the one true God, using my vocabulary will never do,
but I use words as an expression,
an expression of worship to a savior,
a savior who is both worthy and deserving of my praise, so I use words.
My heart extols the Lord, blesses his name forever.
He has won, my heart captured my mind and has bound them both together.
He has defeated me in my rebellion, conquered me in my sin.
He has welcomed me into his presence, completely invited me in.
He has made himself the object of my sight,
flooding me with mercies in the morning,
drowning me with grace in the night.
But if there are words for Him then I don’t have them. 
But what I do have is good news,
for my God knew that man-made words would never do.
For words are just tools that we use to point to the truth.
So he sent his son Jesus Christ as “The Word”, living proof.
He is the image of the invisible God, the first born of all creation.
For by him all things are created,
giving nothingness formation,
and by his words he sustains, in the power of his name, for He is before all things and over all things he reigns, holy is his name, so praise him for his life…
The way, he persevered in strife, the humble son of God becoming the perfect sacrifice.
Praise him for his death…
that He willingly stood in our place,
that he lovingly endured the grave,
that he battled our enemy and on the third day rose in victory.
He is everything that was promised,
praise him as your risen king,
lift your voice and sing,
for one day he will return for us and we will finally be united with our savior for eternity, eternity.
So it’s not just words that I proclaim,
for my words point to “The Word” and “The Word” has a name,
hope has a name,
joy has a name,
peace has a name,
love has a name and that name is Jesus Christ.
Praise his name forever!

“…But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”

1 John 4:10 This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.

It is overwhelming when we realize how much we are loved. In the story of Abraham and Isaac, when God commanded Abraham to sacrifice his one and only son, the son of promise, as the bible says. We are filled with compassion for Abraham over how difficult this must have been for him. Isaac carried the wood up the mountain for his sacrifice, just as Christ carried His cross up the mountain for His sacrifice. God spared Isaac, but did not spare His only son. Heaven’s best the unblemished, perfect sacrifice was given for us! So yes, we are loved greatly and the purchase of our sins was an over payment.  God is aware of all that we face and has compassion for us in all we face. He is with us always and the moment we turn to Him he is there. The key is to more and more have a revelation of His love for us and how great and indescribable it is. We receive a revelation of His love through the word. We get this when we read and hear about our Lord and Savior. This in turn increases our faith and produces greater love in us.

Then we turn to another word out of John.

John 16:33 I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”

Our perfect lamb and Bridegroom Jesus overcame the world. We have the same power to overcome that He has through the Holy Spirit. Sometimes we become tired by circumstances. In these times let us take heart and see the greatness of our God and Jesus which words could never describe. We then no longer see the difficulty but our loving savior. See that Jesus is greater, our God is greater than anything we face and know that our God hears us when we cry out to him. The bible says that the Israelite’s when they were in Egypt groaned and God heard and answered their cry and delivered them. So even a groan reached the throne of God. In the same way when we see Jesus and his greatness and call He will answer and provide the strength, peace and the means out  of our situation, the solution. It also says in the bible that Jesus has all things under His feet, including whatever we are facing right now.

So take heart and rest in the finished work of Jesus.
