Revelation 1:17, "When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead." (NIV)
Wow, every time I read this verse it causes me to reflect on Jesus Power. Think about it. John walked with Jesus, laid back against his chest during the last supper, and stood with him at the cross...but in REVELATION...he fell as a dead man before HIM! WOW!
This passage of Scripture always makes me remember my husband's explanation of God. He say, "If you can ever completely understand or explain God...you serve too small a god."
God is so much greater than we could ever hope or imagine. He exceeds our greatest expectation. Words can't even begin to describe his holiness, power, or love!
It's easy to get wrapped up in our day to day routine and fall into the pattern of casually interacting with God...BUT...in order to PERSEVERE WITH HOPE...we need to STOP and REMEMBER WHO WE SERVE.
He is ALL POWERFUL. Mighty to save. Faithful. He ever lives to intercede for us! He is good and He loves us. He is our Father!
1 John 3:1 says, "How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God ! And that is what we are!" (NIV) How encouraging. We are HIS and He is for us!
So today, I want to encourage you..."If God is for you, who can stand against you?" Take a few moments to envision Him today...in all of His glory...in all of His honor... in all of His love!
PRAYER: Father fill us with hope. Reveal Your power. Fill us with Your Spirit. Strengthen us. Give us a clearer revelation of just HOW POWERFUL You are. And thank You God, that You love us, and have chosen to call us Your children.
