‘Our God is an Awesome God’ (and I Need Him!)

Things are not going at all well with my family, lately. And as much as I would like to give you the details–and that’s very much indeed–I am not at liberty to do so. You’ll just have to take my word for it–and pray that the Lord helps us, and soon. I don’t know what to do, and there’s no one to go to… but God Himself and our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Meanwhile, all I can do for now is to follow the old advice: pray harder, sing louder. And hope God hears me, and comes to our aid. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Because We Need It: ‘Our God Is an Awesome God’

Like the lady on the Christian radio show said, so many years ago: “When times get tough–sing louder!”

Let’s sing this, then: Our God Is an Awesome God, performed by Michael W. Smith. At least turn up the volume!

Again!’Our God Is an Awesome God’

One of the wisest things I ever heard anybody say was by a woman on this little 15-minute panel show on our local Christian radio station. “When life gets hard and things go bad,” she said, “and when your faith feels shaky–sing louder!”

Turn up the volume on this one, Our God is an Awesome God. May the songs of God’s people cause His enemies to know they’ve picked the wrong side, and move them to repent. It really doesn’t pay to defy Almighty God who made the heavens and the earth. Let the heathen take full warning.

Amen! ‘Our God is an Awesome God’

Yeah, I’ve posted this several times before: Our God is an Awesome God, by Michael W. Smith. He’s giving the concert, but it’s the audience that’s singing. Anyway, this is what my spirit craved this morning.

All the Nooze That’s Fit to Print

(Never fails to bring tears of rejoicing to my eyes…)

Y’know what? It’s pretty easy to get demoralized by the news. I mean, it’s one damned thing after another, all of it awful, a never-ending freak show: like the report today about the 22-year-old nut in Los Angeles who wants to be “a genderless alien or extraterrestrial” and has had over 100 plastic surgery procedures toward that end ( http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-4274396/Man-spends-50-000-transform-genderless-ALIEN.html ). Look at the mess he’s made of himself!

But we ought to remember that that’s the nature of the news.

A thousand cats sitting on a thousand people’s laps, that’s not news, it would never be reported. One cat going mad and biting off Grandma’s tongue–that’s news, and it will be reported everywhere.

The news is about deviations from the norm, the more deviant, the better. Ordinary people doing ordinary things, with ordinary results, is not news. Okay, a local weekly reporting the youth league soccer scores, that’s pretty normal–and as the guy whose job once included getting that stuff into the paper, I’m here to tell you that they’d tar and feather you if you ever left it out.

It’s not that the news reports we read, and get distressed by, are fictional–although some of it is, and more than is good for us. We do have to pay heed to what’s happening. A lot of it is bad. A lot of it, we would stop if we could.

But we mustn’t let ourselves be freaked out by it. (“I plead guilty, your honor…”) Accepting that it’s bad news, resolved to do what good we can, there’s still one thing we must always remember:

Our God is an awesome God!

Yes! ‘Our God is an Awesome God’

Yeah, I know I’ve posted this several times before–but how would you like to see 50,000 people singing this at the Inauguration ceremony? Not scripted, not planned: the hymn just breaks out. Like a volcano. Like “Let there be light!”

Crank up the volume, boys and girls. Our God is an awesome God!

Oh, Yeah! ‘Our God is an Awesome God’

Among the wisest things I’ve ever heard in my life was a very crisp one-liner delivered by a woman on a Christian panel talk show, many years ago on our local Christian radio station.

Asked “What do you do?” when days are dark, your faith is tested constantly and you can just feel it being worn away, when you just don’t seem to know much anymore, what do you do–

“Sing louder,” she said. I’ve never forgotten it.

Our God is an Awesome God is one of those things you may wish to sing louder. It’s been in my head all morning, and I’m glad.

Praise! ‘Our God is an Awesome God’

This is the hymn I woke up with today, which I sang to myself this morning on my bike–a song to strengthen the soul, and give courage: Our God is an Awesome God, here performed by Michael Smith in concert with the whole audience joining in.

Youtube says “comments have been disabled” for this page. Probably it’s because this video makes atheists gnash their teeth and levitate.

But this is what it makes me think of:

God is sovereign over all of His creation, and everything in it.

The wicked are exalted in this age. They walk and talk and do whatever they please, in great pride and power.

But they are only grown as great and proud as God Himself has permitted, and they will endure not one minute longer than He has ordained.

The day and hour of their destruction is already marked on God’s calendar.

For our God is indeed an awesome God.
