I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works. I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High. Psalm 9:1-2 NKJV
I love telling stories about my father. He was in the navy as a young man. He had a fascination with military history. My father named me after a relative who died fighting for our country. He loved watching war movies. I loved watching them with him.
I am reminded of a scene in a movie. A group of soldiers is ambushed. The troops panic. They stop fighting. A veteran sergeant remains on his feet. He encourages the troops to get up and fight. They fight back. The enemy flees. The battle was won.
When the fighting ended a soldier called the sergeant a hero. He stood up and rallied the troops to victory. The sergeant said; the only reason I didn’t get down and take cover is I have a trick knee. I knew I would never be able to get back up.
I love talking about the great and mighty things done by my Heavenly Father. God wants us to stand up and declare His glory to people who do not know Him. He wants us to take a stand of faith during the battles we face!
We were created to worship Jesus with our love. We find the greatest joy when we fulfill our true purpose in life. God is not asking us to be hero’s in the traditional sense. He is calling us to rely on Jesus to give us the strength to live for Him!
Jesus wants you to trust Him to make a way for you to stand up and be counted among His faithful disciples. Jesus wants you to trust Him to give you what you need when you need it to fulfill your calling to serve Him!
Our calling as Christians is to know Jesus Christ and to make Him known to the world!
Jesus is looking for men and women who are willing to allow Him to live His life in them and through them. Jesus wants to use us to bring transformation and healing to a world in desperate need!
Tell other people about the great and mighty works Jesus accomplishes in your life. Tell other people about the marvelous works Jesus accomplishes with your life.
Rejoice and be glad. Sing praises to the name of Jesus. Love the Lord with all your heart. You were created to give glory and honor to Jesus by honoring your Heavenly Father in all you do today and every day!
Ask Jesus to open your eyes to the marvelous work He is doing in the world today. Share those stories with everyone everywhere you go!
