The Great Counsellor


I cannot thank you any less
Oh Lord my God
For all you have shown me
For all you have taught me
I am in awe of your awesomeness.

So worried was I
So uncertain was I
I did not know what to do
I did not know where to look for the answers
But I knew who to turn to
Oh Lord my God

You are an awesome God
There is none like you
You worked it all out
You made everything okay
And I had to do nothing at all.

You are an awesome God
You deserve all the praise and glory
There is none like you
In all heaven and earth
You are a wonderful and majestic God

Nothing can defeat you
Nothing is above your great wisdom
Not one soul can match up to you
You give answers to all difficult problems
You are the alpha and omega.

Indeed
You are the great I am.

Listen to the Voice of God in the Storm

The storm makes my heart beat wildly.
Listen all of you to the voice of God,
To the thunder that comes from His mouth.
He sends the lightning accross the sky,
From one end of the earth to the other.

Then the roar of His voice is heard,
The majestic sound of thunder,
And all the while the lightning flashes.

At God's command amazing things happen,
Wonderful things that we can't understand.
He commands snow to fall on the earth,
And sends toreents of drenching rain.

He brings our work to a stop,
He shows us what He can do.
The wild animals go their dens.
The storm winds come from the south,
And the biting cold from the north.

The breadth of God freezes the waters,
And turns them to solid ice.
Lightning flashes from the clouds,
As they move at God's will.
They all do what God commands,
Everywhere throughout the world.

God sends rain to water the earth,
He may send it to punish us,
Or to show us His favour.

                                                                                                                         Job 37:1-13

A Prayer of Thanksgiving

Illustration Praying Angel Free Stock Photography
I thank you Lord with all my heart,
I sing praise to you before the gods.
I face your holy temple,
Bow down and praise your name,
Because of your constant love and faithfulness,
Because you have shown that your name and your commands are supreme.

You answered me when I called to you,
With your strength you strengthened me.
Even though you are so high above,
You care for the lowly,
And the proud cannot hide from you.

When I am sorrounded by troubles,
You keep me safe.
You oppose my angry enemies
And save me by your power.

You will do everything you have promised,
Lord, your love is eternal.
Complete the work that you have begun.

Psalms 138

God is the creator of the universe and the one who directs our lives. He knows all our desires and the things we wish to do. He knows every one of us from the inside out and we cannot hide anything from Him.

We should always include God in our plans and seek His guidance. Only He can give us the wisdom to make the right decisions. When we do this we are professing God as the majestic and all-powerful creator of the universe. It is a sign of our love and respect for Him.

God requries us to put Him first place in all our decisions. He wants us to seek Him every day and He promises to guide us in the right path. It is only in doing so that we find true happiness and joy in all that we do.

Therefore, let us learn to pray to God whenever we need to make a decision. Let us seek His approval and blessings before we put into action any plans we have made.
