Devotional Song:  … GO TO THIS LINK …  Please take the time to take in a video of Chris Tomlin leading a crowd in worship, singing, How Great Is Our God declaring the magnitude of the great God we serve. Listen and sing along and worship our glorious God !!!

My Journal for Today:  Today’s Our Daily Bread author, Tim Gustafson, reminded his readers (me) of the greatness of the God to Whom we have surrendered our lives as Lord and Savior.

John declared it in the first chapter of His gospel account, didn’t he (see John 1 - linked above)? And the people of Cana began to see Jesus for Whom He really was [and is] when He performed His first miracle at a wedding in that little town (see the John 2 passage). And His inner 12 Disciples were really amazed when they witnessed the One they followed calming the waves of that storm in John Mark’s eye-witness account (see Mark 4).

But do WE get it? I mean; … do we really grasp the greatness of our God? … I hope so.

But when I took the time this morning to quiet my heart and mind in this place of solitude and listen to Chris Tomlin lead an audience of thousands in worship, singing the linked song for today, I was overwhelmed to tears, … realizing the greatness of the God to Whom I’ve surrendered my life.

I pray you do so as well.

My Prayer Today:  Heavenly Father, … I pray others here today will see that You are our God, … our Lord, … our Messiah, … our Savior!!! … Amen
