How GREAT thou art. In size, in magnificence, in power. But how GREAT thou art in gentleness, in tender care of men, in rescue. How GREAT in wonder, in miracles, in works, but also how GREAT in love, in mercy, in compassion.
The cross stands before us, the Resurrection surrounds us, but His Presence is IN US.
He has given to men His GREATNESS, and for every step of every day, no matter if we falter or stand strong, He remains GREAT TO US and GREAT FOR US.
How much more would a God who gave His GREATEST GIFT, who poured out His love to such a GREAT extent, also EXCEED Himself in what He would do to bring peace of mind, of body, of spirit? Would the God who saved the world also save each one in the world? Would He not reach down to lift one individual? Doesn’t He know my name, know yours? He SO LOVED the world, but He SO LOVES John and Sarah and MaryAnn.
He did He utmost; He gave His all, and yet, He is still giving His all. Every single day, every hour of the day, every minute of the day, He is giving more. To nations, to governments, but GREATER than these, to people. Jesus came to die for people. He was Resurrected to save people. He continues as GOD to save people. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit love people.
At my lowest point, in the darkest hours, the God of all, the GREAT ONE, took my hand. He saw Suzanne D. Willliams, Author, Wife, Mother, Daughter, Sister, Friend, and He did what I could not do to bring me peace in ways I did not expect Him to do it.
Never sell Him short. Never limit His GREATNESS. He IS GREAT, in power, in authority, in wonder. But He is GREATEST OF ALL in you.
“And in love he chose us before he laid the foundation of the universe! Because of his great love, he ordained us, so that we would be seen as holy in his eyes with an unstained innocence. For it was always in his perfect plan to adopt us as his delightful children, through our union with Jesus, the Anointed One, so that his tremendous love that cascades over us would glorify his grace— for the same love he has for the Beloved, Jesus, he has for us. And this unfolding plan brings him great pleasure!” (Eph 1:4-6 TPT 2020)
