Living It Out-Day 5-Does Your Spirit Need To Be Lifted?

"Living It Out"-Today just focus on this:  "Great is the Lord"!

Do you remember the old hymn  "How Great Thou Art"?  Proclaim with me today, "My God, how great thou art!"  Feel your spirit within you well up at the words you speak.

There is no limit to what God can or will do on your behalf if you are a child of the King and follow Him.  Is there an area today where you might be thinking I can't do that, I'm not good enough, or it will never happen?

I have many of those places and am no expert on having this conquered.  I falter and waffle faster than you can blink but when I speak His name and remember how great He is, it changes my view at that moment.

The people of Israel were doubting God.  They had moved back to their home land expecting more than what they saw. They desired more and were discouraged.

God told the Israelites He would take care of the land of Edom by destroying them, and, when He did, Israel would acknowledge Him as Lord!  A change would take place in their spirit and they would see Him as He truly is, great and mighty.

The circumstances became bigger at that moment for the Israelites than their God.  He reminds them to change their perspective.

It is a constant battle to remember that this life isn't about me or what I'm going through but how great the Lord is!  He know my concerns and will deal with them.

When our focus stays where it belongs, we will see and acknowledge how great is the Lord!
