Thankful to God

God is the answer to our deepest longings.
For whatever a man may know, 
he still has a lot to learn, 
but if he loves God, 
he is opening his whole life 
to the Spirit of God.  
I am so thankful this morning for the truth of 
"Christ the power and the wisdom of God."
Because outside of that, all is meaningless.
No matter how much you study or learn, 
there is seemingly an infinite amount 
of knowledge you have yet to learn.
And, for the most part, it really doesn't matter.
What does matter is that God has granted us 
the privilege of knowing Him.
If we love Him, we are alive to the Spirit of God
and we are given the very thoughts of God.
Whatever longings we have, 
however great our dreams and desires, 
God is the answer.
"All we preach is Christ crucified."
Jesus' life and death, 
the cross and resurrection, 
granting us access to the love of God.
This morning, I declare the truth in 1Corinthians: 
"I am thankful to God 
for what the gift of His grace 
in Jesus Christ has meant  to me—
He has enriched my whole life, 
from the words on my lips to 
the understanding in my heart."

Thankful seems a small word for all that.
But I am able to say back to God
the words He gave us to speak.
God is the answer to my deepest longings.
So very thankful.
