“But our God is in the heavens; He does whatever He pleases.“ (Psalm 115:3, NASB)
“The problem with people is not that God is dead but that their faith is dead. The do not have living faith in the living God …
If we are going to have the kind of relationship with God that we ought to have, if He is going to be the living God with living power and blessing, first of all we must trust Him. That means to rely on Him, to believe that what He says is right and true, that He does not lie. It means to believe what God is doing is the best thing for us. He is our Help. He is our Shield. He is our Provision. He is our Protection and our Security. He also is our Sufficiency.
Second, we must fear Him … To fear God means to show reverence to Him, to respect Him when He speaks and acts, to have a heart that does not tempt or test Him.
Third, we must bless Him …
Praise Him “from this day forth and forevermore” (Psalm 115:18).”
