God from A-Z
In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence.
For God is sheer beauty, all-generous in love, loyal always and ever.
Compassionate to all His servants. He redeemed your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion.
The Lord who delights in those who fear Him who put their hope in His unfailing love.
The Lord is from everlasting to everlasting.
A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.
Great is the Lord, and most worthy of praise,
'Be holy because I, the Lord your God, am holy.
For nothing is impossible with God."
God is fair and just; He corrects the misdirected, Sends them in the right direction.
But you, O God, are both tender and kind, not easily angered, immense in love, and you never, never quit.
How exquisite your love, O God! How eager we are to run under your wings
God is magnificent; he can never be praised enough. There are no boundaries to his greatness.
After all, he's famous for great and unexpected acts; there's no end to his surprises.
Then they'll learn your name: "God," the one and only High God on earth.
The law appoints as high priests men who are never able to get the job done right. But this intervening command of God, which came later, appoints the Son, who is absolutely, eternally perfect.
You're my place of quiet retreat; I wait for your Word to renew me.
He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just.
Yet you, God, are sovereign still, always and ever sovereign.
If you'll hold on to me for dear life," says God, "I'll get you out of any trouble. I'll give you the best of care if you'll only get to know and trust me.
His unique identity as Son of God was shown by the Spirit when Jesus was raised from the dead, setting him apart as the Messiah, our Master.
Pure gold put in the fire comes out of it proved pure; genuine faith put through this suffering comes out proved genuine. When
Jesus wraps this all up, it's your faith, not your gold that God will have on display as evidence of his victory.
God was wonderful to us; we are one happy people.
Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.
Avraham called the name of that place Yahweh-jireh. As it is said to this day, "In the LORD's mountain it will be provided.
The remnant will come from Jerusalem, the survivors from Mount Zion. The Zeal of God will make it happen.
The Master declares, "I'm A to Z. I'm The God Who Is, the God Who Was, and The God About to Arrive. I'm the Sovereign-Strong."
What a mighty God we serve. God is all, everything, full and running over. God is the whole lot, in Him you lack nothing. God is the whole shebang why continue to search for anything else. There is nothing else for you, what else could there be? It is all in God, He is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End.
Lord Thy God, what can we say to you that would be enough. Nothing! To You we cannot offer enough praise or enough worship for you O Lord are more than enough, filling our cups to overflowing. All we can say is thank You Most High God. All we can do is lay down our selfishness as You laid down Your life and offer You a living body, sacrificing all and becoming willingly to be Your eyes, ears, hands, feet, heart and soul, serving You as You direct, living in obedience to Your commands. All we can offer You Lord is our service and Lord that is not nearly enough for a God who is our everything. We love You, we adore You, we are grateful to You our God and our Lord. In Jesus Holy, Righteous and Loving Name we offer this prayer of surrender. Amen and amen!
