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!

As we cross into the new year to 2014, “…God—so rich is He in His mercy!”

Ephesians 2:4-7

Amplified Bible (AMP)

But God—so rich is He in His mercy! Because of and in order to satisfy the great and wonderful and intense love with which He loved us, Even when we were dead (slain) by [our own] shortcomings and trespasses, He made us alive together in fellowship and in union with Christ; [He gave us the very life of Christ Himself, the same new life with which He quickened Him, for] it is by grace (His favor and mercy which you did not deserve) that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation).  And He raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together [giving us joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere [by virtue of our being] in Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed One).  He did this that He might clearly demonstrate through the ages to come the immeasurable (limitless, surpassing) riches of His free grace (His unmerited favor) in [His] kindness and goodness of heart toward us in Christ Jesus.

Points:
  • God has a “great and wonderful and intense love” for us.  Let us dwell on His love for us, let’s keep His love in front of us as we continue on our walk!  This love will cast out every concern and fear (1 John 4:18)!
  • We are alive through and with Christ!  In fact it says “[He gave us the very life of Christ Himself, the same new life with which He quickened Him…”  So the same life that is in Christ, that allowed him to overcome the world is in us.  Let us focus on Christ our King!  Let us cast every care to Him, not worry or hold onto it, but simply give it to Him with trust and hope (have an anticipation of good) (1 Peter 5:7)!  Let us also know that we receive what we need each and every day (Matthew 6:25-34).
  • “…And He raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together [giving us joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere…”  It does not say we will sit with Him, it says we are sitting with Him “…in the heavenly sphere…”
    • If there is a hope we have for the new year, a trouble trouble or difficulty remember we are sitting with Him “…in the heavenly sphere…”!  Also remember “all things are under His feet!  So let us simply cast it to Jesus and trust! (Ephesians 2:19-22) “And [so that you can know and understand] what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength,Which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His [own] right hand in the heavenly [places],Far above all rule and authority and power and dominion and every name that is named [above every title that can be conferred], not only in this age and in this world, but also in the age and the world which are to come.22 And He has put all things under His feet and has appointed Him the universal and supreme Head of the church [a headship exercised throughout the church]”

May you increase a thousand times! (Deuteronomy 1:11)

11 May the Lord, the God of your ancestors, increase you a thousand times and bless you as he has promised!
