Have you thought about God today? I mean really thought about God? Not in any reference to what He has done for us, (there is so very much that He has done!) not in a prayer offered as a bullet toward heaven for help, not asking for our "list" of prayer needs, not even in our prayers for others, but have you thought about God? We need to completely remove the "I" from our thoughts and prayers and simply gaze heavenward to consider the Almighty! Let us consider Him apart from creation and salvation. Let us consider HIM!

Our God is! He is infinite, eternal, unchangeable. Have you thought about what that means?

Our God exists in One God but three persons equal in power and glory. He is a mystery to ponder!

Our God is good, true, holy, love, just, merciful, longsuffering, powerful, wise. There is much to consider.

Take some time today to think. Stop. Slow Down. Pull your apron over your head as Susannah Wesley would and contemplate our awesome God! (Eloihim, Adonai, Yahweh, Jehovah) In Christ, we are beckoned to worship Him tomorrow. Think on Him. Let our God be exalted in our minds, hearts and lives. May we be as mirrors of His glory and bring Him praise! Let us exalt the Lord! May we be prepared to come before Him tomorrow!

Psalm 98:4-8
Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises! Sing praises to the LORD with the lyre and the sound of melody! With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the King, the LORD!
Let the sea roar, and all that fills it; and the worldand those who dwell in it! Let the rivers clap their hands; let the hills sing for joy together..."
