Make Much of God

When the days are bleak with no hint of sun,

make much of God.

His mercies are new every morning.

When you feel like you can’t carry on,

make much of God.

He will carry you through.

When you feel overwhelmed, like the weight of the world is on your shoulders,

make much of God.

He will give you rest.

When you feel the heavy cloud of anxiety or depression hovering over you,

make much of God.

He gives peace that passes understanding.

When you are confused about who you are and the questions of “why?” threaten to drag you under,

make much of God.

He loves you lavishly.

When you can’t get over how sweet God has been to you,

make much of God.

He will give you the desires of  your heart.

When the blessings in your life are too many to count,

make much of God.

He will do immeasurably more than all you ask or imagine.

When your heart is overflowing with happiness as you see God’s plan unfold,

make much of God.

He has plans to prosper you.

When you see God’s goodness all around you,

make much of God.

He crowns the year with his goodness.

I am convinced that we get stuck in patterns of pain, hurt, confusion and disappointment when we make much of our circumstances and by so doing, diminish God’s promises and make less of him. But what if we made much of God in whatever circumstances we faced? Wouldn’t we be more cognizant of his promises if we did this? Wouldn’t the cares of this world have less power over us if we truly trusted in God? Wouldn’t we be quicker to give all the glory to God when things are going well?

I think we would. Please test my theory for yourself!

Promises of God taken from the following scriptures: Lamentations 3:22-23, Psalm 23, Matthew 11:28-30, Philippians 4:6, 1 John 3:1, Psalm 37:4, Ephesians 3:20, Jeremiah 29:11 and Psalm 65:11.
