GOD’S NATURE: JOY & HOPE

Have you ever pondered God’s nature? I believe it is a lofty theme and good for us to ponder. We need to realize that God’s ways are higher than our ways. He is infinite while we are finite. We have earthly limitations now, but when we get to heaven we will have a more clear understanding and appreciation of His nature. This glorious thought gives me joy and hope.

“Your Nature” is a Christian song by Kari Jobe and others describing God’s nature. It was inspired by verses from Isaiah 54 that were the focus of a previous blogpost (10/20/21).

The song relates  joy and hope to
attributes of our awesome God. Its lyrics address God: “You bring joy to the broken hearted,
hope to the ones who’ve lost it. God, it’s Your nature.” Read below, then  listen, ponder GOD’S nature, and be blessed.

YOUR NATURE

You bring life
To the barren places,
Light to the darkest spaces.
God, it’s Your nature.

You bring joy
To the broken hearted,
hope to the ones who’ve lost it.
God, it’s Your nature.

There is no desert
That Your streams can’t run to.
There are no ruins
That Your love won’t make new.
You tell the wasteland
That it will bloom again,
‘Cause it’s Your nature.

You will restore the years
That shame has stolen.
You keep the promises
That You have spoken.
I know this wasteland
Will be whole again,
‘Cause it’s Your nature.

You bring peace
To the war inside us.
Speak and all fear is silenced.
God, it’s Your nature.

You bring joy to the broken hearted,
hope to the ones who’ve lost it.
God, it’s Your nature.

There is no desert
That Your streams can’t run to.
There are no ruins
That Your love won’t make new.
You tell the wasteland
That it will bloom again,
‘Cause it’s Your nature.

You will restore the years
That shame has stolen.
You keep the promises
That You have spoken.
I know this wasteland
Will be whole again,
‘Cause it’s Your nature.

Sing out, oh barren woman.
Sing out, oh broken man.
Stretch out your hands believing
This is your promise land.
Break out of disappointment,
Break out of hopelessness.
Stretch out your hands
Believing this is your promise land.

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.”  (Isaiah 55: 8-9)
