Morning Praise — God’s Presence Amidst Our Frailty

Morning Praise — This week Lord I am again reminded of the frailty of our bodies. I praise you for your presence, for your healing touch and the hands of those in the dental profession who did surgery on me this week. I am grateful for all the training they completed to help me. Our bodies are such an amazing creation, yet I recognize we live in a fallen world where these bodies of ours will not last. I praise you God that you extend to us the promise of eternal life where we will be made anew; where we will no longer have bodies that wear out; where we will be in your presence forever. I give praise that you are a constant presence for those who are faithful to you. Give us us the stamina, the strength to carry out the mission you have given us here on this earth. Thank you that we are able to serve such a loving and gracious God.

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” – Revelation 21:4 (NIV)

“No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads.” – Revelation 22:3-4

  1. Agreed. We are such frail, flawed things. I look out across the parking lot from our room at the motel we live at and see baby bunnies. So small and frail yet happily eating, not caring for anything, always on alert, always being cared for by the Father. When my thoughts turn this way I see a God who took us through tremendous storms yet did not allow us to suffer grievous harm. How cool is that? So many times we faced death, defeat, hunger and pain. We could have failed at any moment yet He spared us and brought us through by His own strength. When we slept on that snowbank in February we could have frozen to death…but didn’t. Why? Because of His great power to sustain us.

    May we praise His name this day for His great power to save us and His great love that meets us in the darkest, deepest storms and walks with us through to victory.

    Thank you!

    1. What a testimony to God’s faithfulness! To see his hand in the midst of suffering is a demonstration of your faithfulness to God; a true “uncompromising faith.” Thank you for sharing your faith walk. Blessings to you.
