It is such a blessing to have God like our God. There are other people and things that may try to set themselves up as a god, but there is not another god like our God. The God we serve is awesome, and is doing wonderful things in our lives. The God we serve has kept us through difficult times in our lives, and has given us the sunshine after the rain. The God we serve has made ways out of no way, and has performed miracles in our lives. The God we serve no matter how dark the day may be will always let us know there is a bright side somewhere. The God we serve no matter how down we may be picks us up from where we have fallen and places our feet back on the right path. Our God deserves to be praised and exalted for all of the wonderful things He continues to do in our lives.
The Scripture reminds us that, He is my God, and I will praise Him: for He is my God, I will exalt Him. I encourage you today to lift up the name of Jesus wherever you are. Exalt Him in every aspect of your life, He has brought you from a long way and He deserves your praise. He is your God and He knew you from the foundation of the earth, and loved you before you were even born. Your God loves you despite the things you may go through, and when everyone else leaves you, your God is there for you.
God has claimed you as His child and since you are His child, He will always take care of you. I thank God He is my God and is doing wonderful things in my life, and even when the sun is not shinning in my life He is still my God. I will praise Him and exalt Him for His unconditional love He has towards me.
Since He is my God and I will praise Him and exalt Him, and I know that when the praises go up the blessings come down I can boldly proclaim, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Thank you Lord for being my God, and I will praise and exalt you forever more. In Jesus Name Amen.
