Ah Lord God!

Updated on February 29, 2016

Yes, yes, there is a tenderness and gentleness which does escalate into the greatest and awesomeness of a Mighty God.

Yes, I can feel and sense the excitement and joy that rises in your spirit, because truly nothing is too difficult for Him, A loving Father,

I remember when I first read it, and thought it was from the Book of Psalms, But these were words of the Prophet Jeremiah from 32:17, the weeping Prophet,

Drawing me closer..... I love the way he opens the verse, Ah, Lord God! A sigh of relief when you realize God has it all under control,

There is an unction God gives to rest likened to a pillow of grace that carries a heavy load, There is such a kindness and goodness to be heard as it resonates in my soul, and lifts my heart into praise,

This verse exclaims to "Behold thou hast made the heaven and earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee". Ever since you sent this verse it has been in my spirit speaking life to me!

At this very moment I realize what Crescendo of Praises really entail, as I am sitting here this morning into the afternoon with a song in my heart,

Enchanted also by the chorus "Ah Lord God" by a worshipper named Don Moen, thankful and full of joy for my ongoing experience and call to worship,

Humming it over and over again, it spreads like a wild fire, even my co-worker began humming it too.

Thank you for sharing my dear Sister and breaking bread with me even from a distance.

      I went on YouTube to find a longer version, but they all cut off there. I had another version that goes right into the next cut of mighty warrior dress for battle...Jesus has all authority here in this place, He has all authority here, for this habitation was fashioned for the Lord's presence......These praise songs are from the late 80's. I love them.

      Hi Bob: Thank you for sharing these great insights. The Bible is like no other book. Yes we travel from, faith to faith and glory to glory. We all at one time or another have put God in a small box and it isn't until the Holy Spirit reveals to us that His ways are not our ways, nor His thoughts our thoughts that we yield to the power of who He really is. I am enjoying your comments and response immensely. We learn on levels and arrive to truth in stages. The words Ah Lord God! just touched my spirit in such a mammoth way. I really thought it was from the Book of Psalms...King David. When I realized it was from the Prophet Jeremiah it served as a comfort knowing his heart of lamenting, yet at this particular moment his sigh was the equivalent of relief, that nothing is too difficult for God. Thank you again for dropping in and communing with me. May grace and peace hold your hands and be your closest companions.

      Hi MabelHenry I loved the worship song, I had never heard it before. It does stick in your head, very nice melody.

      I am struck with the power of just a few lines of the Bible. Even in the power of the two words, "Ah God."

      In one of my first classes in Bible college, the professor said something I had never given much thought to before. It seems my idea of God was way different than God is. He is much much bigger and profound. God is eternal and will never be totally understood with "ways that are far above our ways and His thoughts above our thoughts."

      The teacher pointed out that the Bible is different than any other book in the world. He said that if we took any other book and read and reread it, eventually we would know that story inside and out, up and down, and be able to quote and understand every line and concept within it. But the Bible is different, it holds eternity in just a few words.

      As the Holy Spirit illuminates a verse to a person, He serves up a portion of truth and power tailor-made for that moment in time and for that specific person. I found out that was true in a way that was very surprising to me. I was urged by people around me to write in my Bible thoughts that God had shown when I read and studied that verse. So I dutifully wrote my Bible all up. But when I would revisit those thoughts, the words of the verse actually seemed to say something different than they did the last time. It was really quite remarkable.

      "The word of God is sharper than a two-edged sword." I had put God in a very small box and the professor had shown me that the word of God is a "living" thing. So I believe that each time you return to "Ah God" each time you prayerfully consider that verse, the Holy Spirit will illuminate to you something unique and different designed just for you and specifically for that moment in time, exactly what you need. Such a short article with such powerful words. Thank you, Bob.
