God gives clarity to the mind that seeks him. Confusion reigns in the world. Fools spout nonsense. The lazy rise up only to criticize the worker. The crazy person throws gasoline on fire and eggs on conflict. God shows us the end of all this. Glory to the Lord for the lucidity of truth!
Read Proverbs 26.
Jesus has prepared a place for us with him, in heaven. That means that this earth is not our home. We are travelers here, just passing through. Our aim is to live here in such a way so we can get there. Glory to God for our eternal goal!
God is eternal. His name is I-AM. So he rules past, present, and future. He can forgive our past, transform our present, and offer a future blessed beyond our best imaginations. He folds his people into his eternity. Glory to God for his eternity!
Everything starts with the Word of God. Not songs, not prayers, not offerings. All truth, all content, all faith, all response, has the Word as the starting point. That Word is Jesus. Glory to God for the loving and powerful Word!
Jesus is both God and man. He was sent by the Father and spoke exactly what the Father taught him. Only by following Jesus can we have life and avoid darkness. What a wonderful promise is this! God be praised for his eternal Son!
There is no other God besides the Lord who created heaven and earth. He is the one God, the living and true God. He does not live on the earth, nor inhabit special temples or sacred places. He lives in those who obey him. His people are his temple. Glory be to God for dwelling in us!
Many people seek God when they feel they need something: relief from problems, solutions to crises, healing for body or relationships. God wants us to seek him for himself. No need is greater than our need for him. He created us this way. Glory to God for satisfying this deepest need!
God is Father to those who receive him. We are not automatically his children. We must obey the gospel to be born again in baptism. As his children, we must be like him, children of light, children of obedience. He gives us that power. Glory to God for the privilege of being his children!
God reveals his will. He tells us what he has been doing. All his work led up to the coming of Christ. The Cross is the center of God’s work. He wants everyone to know about it. The Bible is that story. We should memorize and study it. Glory be to God for his revelation!
To praise God one must do so with the whole heart. This means not holding anything back from him. We cannot hide or desire any sin or idol. God forgives the repentant person, so that we can worship him. Glory to God for wholeness!
