Comebacks, Do-Over's and Transformation

In review of Psalm 65:5 it says, “By awesome deeds in righteousness You will answer us, O God of our salvation, You who are the confidence of all the ends of the earth.”

Bottom Line:
You answer us by answering prayers. People all over the world trust in you.

What this means to me:
You faithfully answer my prayers with awesome deeds. You do wonderful things to save me. You are my hope and hope of everyone on earth.

In Psalms 65, the psalmist writes, What mighty praise belongs to you O God. We will fulfill our vows to you, for you answer our prayers. Through we are overwhelmed by our sins, you forgive them all. You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds, O God our savior. You are the hope of everyone. You control the world around us. You command the weather. You care for the earth and water it. We should all shout and sing for joy.

If I ever think I’m having a bad day, week or year, I should consider that is was not as bad as what Lazarus endured. But God brought him back from the dead and gave him a new beginning. God can and will do the same for me. He can heal me from the inside out, even if I’m feeling dead inside.

If I ever start thinking that my life is meaningless and I lose hope, God would want me to take a good look at myself. No matter how bleak the picture may see, how deep the pain is, He truly wants me to have the greatest comeback of all time. He wants me to enjoy the most exciting life I can possibly imagine. I need to allow the Master to intervene in my life on every level, and know that He can transform me.

I need to let Him be my confidence, for nothing or no one is the beyond His reach.
