1 Chronicles 29:11,12 Yours, O LORD, are the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty; for all that is in the heavens and on the earth is yours; yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all. Riches and honour come from you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might; and it is in your hand to make great and to give strength to all. And now, our God, we give thanks to you and praise your glorious name. (NRSV)

Seeing Things as They Really Are

These days, there are so many things that can and will chip away at our faith in Jesus, until at some point, it feels as though there’s nothing of your faith left.

The world calls us to forsake those outdated morals, to let go of those old Bible fables and embrace modern life here in the 21st century. And so seductively does it package its call, that it can be difficult to resist.

A bit of corner-cutting here, a little compromise there, and pretty soon we Christians are thoroughly indistinguishable from the rest of the pack. God? Is He really still all that relevant, all that powerful, all that He’s cracked up to be? Do you see how easy it is for salt to lose its flavour?

1 Chronicles 29:11,12 Yours, O LORD, are the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty; for all that is in the heavens and on the earth is yours; yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all. Riches and honour come from you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might; and it is in your hand to make great and to give strength to all. And now, our God, we give thanks to you and praise your glorious name. (NRSV)

Wow, that puts things into perspective, doesn’t it? This is who God is – the God of power and glory and victory and majesty. The God who owns it all and who gives to all. The God who gives us strength. The God who deserves our praise.

Yep, funny how when we stop to see things how they truly are, to see God as He truly is, how it puts the lies of this world back in their place.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.

Thank you for all you do, God’s word presented by you Bernie & the wonderful team at Christianity works, is shining a bright light into what has been & continues to be a difficult time after losing our daughter. We have seen firsthand the faithfulness and mercy of Our God. He walks with us, especially close through terrible times. We share a truly great & loving God. God Bless you all.

When you are in pain [as I am] it is easy to wonder why God is not healing you!
I’ve gotta remember just WHO HE is and that he does not always heal.
Thanks for that verse.

Good morning! Thank you for blessing us with your words about His word! I really enjoyed your messages about Sweet Poison. I am a sugar-aholic so that really spoke to me. I would love to hear more about how we can treat out bodies as temples like the Lord wants us to do. I live in the US and our government has given in to greed allowed horrible chemicals into our foods. They have also indoctrinated false information (like the food pyramid) into our people. Please help spread the word about how to feel our bodies and souls to please Him! Thank you.

Why is it that we seldom hear from a pulpit, or in deed from anywhere else – the message in MAT.7:20-23. Which starts ” not everyone who says to me Lord Lord will enter the Kingdom . . . ” and ends with ” I never knew you. Away from me, you evil doers”
