Let's start with what God is not: 

 

"God is not a man, that He should lie; nor a son of man, that He should change His mind. Does He speak and then not act? Does He promise and not fulfill?"

Numbers chapter 23, verse 19.

 

God is always there for you-- yes, yes, you've heard this a lot; but it's more true than you realise.

He loves you, and love wants what's best for you. He cries over you. You're His child. Do you not know what that means?

His heart aches and beats for you! He won't seek to harm you, nor will He seek for you to suffer.

The separation between Him and you eats away at Him, for He knows exactly how you feel in your despair and pain-filled times.

God is not some distant creator who set things into motion and walked away. He's alive and real, and He's really there for you in faithful, just, righteous being.

 

"For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes."

Deuteronomy chapter 10, verse 17.

 

He's above all else, for nothing could have come to be without Him. He made you to seek Him for a loving relationship.

No law, no man or woman, no sin or devil could ever keep you away from Him, because He has authority over all.

One day, they'll all fall to His feet alongside of us, and when that day comes those who held onto Him will be lifted up and be triumphant over all that claimed itself to be above God, or claimed God to be below anything else. 

And you will live!

 

So praise Him. He's there and listening as we speak. Go to Him now and give Him praise, for He is the one who deserves it. 

Do you give Him praise regularly? All good things in your life came to be due to Him.

Have I not commanded thee? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

Joshua chapter 1, verse 9.
