Power in Love

God is faithful to daily remind me of His multidimensional character.

Today, I am reminded of His power.
God fights for His people.
Because He loves His people.
He works daily unique miracles for His people.
God is For His people.

{At that time Joshua spoke to the Lord in the day when the Lord gave the Amorites over to the sons of Israel, 
and he said in the sight of Israel,

"Sun, stand still at Gibeon,
and moon, in the Valley of Aijalon."
And the sun stood still, and the moon stopped.
until the nation took vengeance on their enemies.

Is this not written in the Book of Jashar? 
The sun stopped in the midst of heaven and did not hurry to set for about a whole day. 
There has been no day like it before or sincewhen the Lord heeded the voice of a man, 
for the Lord fought for Israel.}

Joshua 10:12-14

As I read this, a familiar Kari Jobe song came on that has become an anthem for my life.

And I prayed this prayer to the God of Heaven and Earth:

Lord, you are so faithful, so constant, so loving and so true.
You are so powerful in all you do.
You are so patient, so gracious, so merciful and true.
You are wonderful in all you do.
You fill me, you see me, you know my every move.
And you love for me to sing to you.
I know that you are FOR me,
and I know that you will never forsake me in my weakness.
I know that you have come now, even if to write upon my heart to remind me who you are.
