This is Our God

This is Our God – by Phil Wickham 🎶 Remember those walls that we called sin and shame? They were like prisons that we couldn’t escape. But He came, and He died, and He rose…those walls are rubble now. Remember those giants we called death and grave? They were like mountains that stood in our way…but He came, and He died, and He rose…those giants are dead now!

This is our God, this is who He is, He loves us. this is what He does, He saves us. He bore the cross, beat the grave. Let Heaven and Earth proclaim…This is our God, King Jesus! Remember that fear that took our breath away? Faith so weak we could barely pray…but He heard every word, every whisper. Now those altars in the wilderness –Tell the story of His faithfulness. Never once did He fail, and He never will. 🎶

“You should know that you yourselves are God’s temple. God’s Spirit lives in you.” 1 Corinthians 3:16 Remember, reflect, and journal those times you felt the train of the Lord’s Holy, Holy, Holy robe fill thy temple and fill you with His glory. Isaiah 6 – Remember that you are in a relationship with the pure Holy Spirit who is everpresent. He waits to be acknowledged, to be engaged to minister to you. Even as we were still sinning, rebelling, ignoring His presence, He never departed, He remains in our midst. “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.” Matthew 5:8 When we take time to examine our hearts and confess are woeful ways, we are blessed. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23 Taking time to humble ourselves, to stop, be stilled, be in awe as we tremble and confess our lack of faith, trust and reliance on Him — we in turn are once again filled with His refreshing, we are renewed with His rest for our souls. After Jesus was buried in the tomb, in three days He walked out and told His disciples to wait for the Holy Spirit. Today we have His holy presence available to us 24/7 – and we must be still and wait for the Holy Spirit to renew us. We can pick the day, time and place to tarry with the Lord, for as long as we like. I am retired so my days of labor or work days are cancelled, but I can still worry with the best in our whacked out world. Enjoying corporate worship on Sundays, and fellowshipping with the saints over lunch is good, but it does not necessarily bring me into the soul renewing presence of the Lord for as long as I need. “Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10.
