It is so true ~ and yet it was painful to read. God’s reputation so often is negative. He is seen as a god that will destroy rather than save. He is seen as a god that is difficult to approach ~ disinterested in human kind, difficult to please, and unloving. How sad that folk keep the one and only True God at arm’s length ~ viewing Him as a policeman of sorts simply waiting for them to mess up. If we are not praising God for his goodness and wonderful works then who will?
Believer ~ if you will stand up for our God, if you will praise His name openly and often ~ if you will ~ He will empower you and bless you beyond reason.
O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good: for His mercy endureth for ever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, who he had redeemed from the hand of the enemy.
Psalm 107: 1-2
