Thrilled with the Lord!

Thrilled with the Lord!



You thrill me, Lord, with all You have done for me!  I sing for joy because of what You have done. 

O Lord, what great works You do!  And how deep are Your thoughts.--------Psalm 92:4-5



Have you ever just stopped and thought about ALL that God has done for YOU, personally?  We sometimes think that He isn’t doing anything in our lives because we can’t see, feel or touch what WE think He should be doing or providing for us. 


When we become His Child, we NEED to put our FAITH and TRUST in HIM, whether we can see, feel or touch the things that He is doing in our lives.  When we think of His gift of SALVATION and the very act or means that had to be carried out in order for us to be able to be made right with Him, when we think of the LOVE that He has for us and the fact that we don’t deserve such a merciful act of grace, it should THRILL us from our head to our toes. 


Because of His UNFAILING, ABIDING LOVE, we have the opportunity to spend ALL eternity in Heaven, and that should cause us to burst forth with songs of JOY and a heart filled with gratitude to know that the Creator of this ENTIRE universe cares about YOU and ME enough to send His ONLY Son to suffer, bleed and die for mankind to purchase our SALVATION and GUARANTEE our eternal destination in Heaven.  Oh what a SAVIOR!!  Oh what redeeming LOVE!


When we take time to contemplate ALL of what it means to us to be part of God’s family and the fact that His gift of SALVATION is a FREE gift to us, we don’t have to do nor can we do anything to merit such a gift.  All that is required of us is that we ACCEPT and BELIEVE, because the price has been paid for the redemption of mankind’s soul.  And ONLY God can determine the outcome of mankind’s destiny.  We don’t set the rules, He does, He gives us a CHOICE to ACCEPT His gift or REJECT it.  Then the judgment of our choice will be made by HIM. 


If you have NEVER given your HEART and LIFE to Him, then you can’t be THRILLED about the things He has or is doing in your life, except for what He has done for ALL mankind, providing a plan of SALVATION for your soul.  However, you can experience the THRILL of God’s UNFAILING, ABIDING LOVE by:  CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and sing for JOY what the Lord has done for YOU.  Do it NOW, while you STILL can.  He’s waiting!!!
