(3) Our God is in heaven doing whatever he wants to do. (4) Their gods are metal and wood, handmade in a basement shop: (5) Carved mouths that can't talk, painted eyes that can't see, (6) Tin ears that can't hear, molded noses that can't smell, (7) Hands that can't grasp, feet that can't walk or run, throats that never utter a sound. (8) Those who make them have become just like them, have become just like the gods they trust.
Thank the Lord of all lords. His love never quits.
Our out-of-control world is under God’s control
Evil comes and goes
Revelation 17:14 MSG They will go to war against the Lamb but the Lamb will defeat them, proof that he is Lord over all lords, King over all kings, and those with him will be the called, chosen, and faithful."
The God whose skill formed the cosmos, His love never quits. (6) The God who laid out earth on ocean foundations, His love never quits. (7) The God who filled the skies with light, His love never quits. (8) The sun to watch over the day, His love never quits. (9) Moon and stars as guardians of the night, His love never quits.
Everything was simply spoken into being by a big God!
Isaiah 40:12 MSG Who has scooped up the ocean in his two hands, or measured the sky between his thumb and little finger, Who has put all the earth's dirt in one of his baskets, weighed each mountain and hill?
And rescued Israel from Egypt's oppression, His love never quits. (12) Took Israel in hand with his powerful hand, His love never quits.
He saved Israel & He saves us
Luke 4:18 MSG God's Spirit is on me; he's chosen me to preach the Message of good news to the poor, Sent me to announce pardon to prisoners and recovery of sight to the blind, To set the burdened and battered free,
The God who marched his people through the desert, His love never quits.
He led Israel & leads us
John 16:13 MSG But when the Friend comes, the Spirit of the Truth, he will take you by the hand and guide you into all the truth there is. He won't draw attention to himself, but will make sense out of what is about to happen and, indeed, out of all that I have done and said.
Smashed huge kingdoms right and left, His love never quits. (18) Struck down the famous kings, His love never quits. (19) Struck Sihon the Amorite king, His love never quits. (20) Struck Og the Bashanite king, His love never quits. (21) Then distributed their land as booty, His love never quits. (22) Handed the land over to Israel. His love never quits.
Rescued us from the trampling boot, His love never quits.
He does not forsake us when troubles come
Psalms 34:17-19 MSG Is anyone crying for help? GOD is listening, ready to rescue you. (18) If your heart is broken, you'll find GOD right there; if you're kicked in the gut, he'll help you catch your breath. (19) Disciples so often get into trouble; still, GOD is there every time.
Thank God! He waited patiently beside the path I traveled, strengthened me in my darkest hours, believed in me when my faith almost faded away, revealed to me in many ways that He never forgot me nor did He forsake me including the very day He led me to Palm Desert to show me how much He loves me. His love never quits!
Thank God for sending a Campaign for Christ to Port Elizabeth, South Africa (in 1968); for his Body in P.E. that gave me role models of Christ; for my Christian wife who was a home mother for four boys; for the son who flew us out to visit with his family in Palm Desert (in 2005/2006); for the Body of Christ in Palm Desert. His love never quits!
