On crushing heads and laying bare. Our God is a good kind of scary (Habakuk 3:13)

"You went out for the salvation of your people,
for the salvation of your anointed.
You crushed the head of the house of the wicked,
laying him bare from thigh to neck. Selah" - Habakuk 3:13

I've been spending some time dwelling on the awesomeness of our God. I've got a lot going on in my head this Christmas even though life slows down nicely in time for the holiday. In the midst of the craziness in my head I'm trying to remember why I hope for the things I do. Why I live the life I do. I try not to forget who I live for and why.

I live for God.

I live for God because He is an awesome, powerful, and loving God.

For our salvation He went out and crushed the house of the wicked. Our God laid him bare from thigh to neck because nothing could stand in the way of His love for us and His desire to bring us salvation.

You know when you're a kid and playing a game of pickup tackle football (because you're young and invincible) and you get the kid who is 6'4" in fifth grade and weighs 250 pounds? Yea, our God is like having that guy on our team. He's scary, but in a good way when He's on your team.

Thank God we're on the right team. Are you on the right team?
