Standing in Awe of God

Observations of a fellow Pilgrim on the Amazing Goodness and Faithfulness of God, 'The Great I Am' Hebrews 11:13
There is a song by Kim Walker Smith entitled "In Awe of You" it starts with these words,
    What do you do when you're lost for words?
       They all fall short, so I just stand in awe
                      Stand in awe of you
If we knew the Goodness and Faithfulness of God in the life of each person who knows Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior we would be at a complete loss for words and we would simply stand in Awe of God!
     His Goodness, Power and Mercy in our lives, is the very fabric of the Hope that is within us.
Our Story begins…. Luke 19:10 tells us that Jesus came to seek and save Sodzo to restore or mend as well as to Redeem. But is our salvation just deliverance from sin and its penalty, death? Romans 8:18-25 adds context
      What did Jesus come to Save/mend? To discover this we need to ask another question. What was Lost in the Garden?
But even more important than the beginning is what happens afterward Philippians 2:12 work out your salvation
2 peter 1:10, 2 Thessalonians 1:11 Ephesians 4:1 Make your calling and election firm.
Transformation comes as the soil of lives is prepared, purged and nurtured by the Holy Spirit and Word of God. In addition the Community of believers building up one another is a critical if we are to Run the Race that is set before us without faltering.
Running this Race in God requires that we learn and apply Spiritual Disciplines everyday. Much like the Olympic athlete or professional athlete doing the basics day in and day out develops "Muscle Memory" in our Spiritual Life as well as our mind and emotions Spiritual Disciplines make our Life in God thrive.
Life is full of twist and turns, ups and downs. One day your the hero and the next the villain. One day your basking in the joys of life the next storms are swirling all around you with no way out visible.
Take time to Review some of your own High and Low points and you will see God’s faithfulness in every valley and on every mountain top.
Our challenge is to Stand in God. To not only Stand but to please God in all we do, to Thrive and Be all that God created us to be
So as Ephesians 6:13 tells us, “Having Done All Stand”
