"Reasons…"

Psalm 11:4 – He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and full of compassion.

When my eyes popped open this morning, I thought ‘another reason to praise Him.’  I already have so many reasons to give Him glory and honor. He IS worthy of all praise I can offer and more.  I look back over my life and remember many, many reasons for loving Him like I do. How about you?  Some of the reasons I could give, I can’t even tell anybody.  God has given me the ability to remember ‘his wonderful works’ and for that I am so grateful.

But, what are God’s reasons for being so gracious and merciful to us?  Why does He forgive us over and over?  And no matter how many times we want to give up, He’s there telling us, ‘You can do it.’  Remembering ‘his wonderful works,’ some of what I got from God, I’m not sure I deserved. But, as they say, I’m glad He didn’t give me what I did deserve.  Our reasons are so complicated sometimes for doing what we do.  And the reasons we do what we do are not always good reasons. They are not always honorable. But, when it comes to God’s reasoning, that’s a totally different story.

I praise God that He is not a complicated God!  Don’t have to get a degree to be able to relate to Him.  Don’t have to be a certain race to hear His voice.  And when it comes to reasoning, He’s simple and plain. Even the most unlearned person can understand.  His reason for doing what He does for us is simply…that He loves us.  All that He does, all that He allows is because of His great love for us all.  Prayerfully, everybody reading this has either given or received love, right? And, it was good wasn’t it?  But, you’ve not been loved until you’ve been loved by God!  His reason is love.  Love is universal!  Everybody understands love!  Don’t be tricked or deceived.  No matter what happens in your life, God loves you!  He went through a lot to have relationship with you.  He longs for fellowship with you.  The reason for ALL that He does to you, whether painful or not, is His love for you!  That’s His reason.
