"Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou
hast understanding. Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou
knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? Whereupon are the
foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; When
the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?" Job 38:4-7
How often do we take God for granted . . . how often do we get frustrated
when He doesn't answer our prayers they way we think He should or when we
think He should! We so easily forget what an awesome God we serve . . .
indeed, where were we when He laid the foundations of the earth? Who can
answer life's mysteries? We so easily become self-engrossed that we forget
His plans were made before He laid the foundations of the earth or even
measured out their span! We were in His mind and a part of His purposes
before the first Word of creation was spoken. His ways are higher than
ours, His thoughts higher than our thoughts. We only need to trust in His
ability to care for us, to lead us, to direct us. He will never, ever let
us down if we just TRUST Him in every aspect of our lives! After all, He
has known us and the circumstances of our lives throughout eternity!
Awesome! Holy! Magnificent! Glorious! Righteous! Mighty! Omnipotent!
Oh Lord, how magnificent is Your name in all the earth! I confess that I
lose sight of how magnificent You truly are; I become frustrated, impatient, and selfish, seeking my own will rather than desiring Your will
be done not only in my life, but in the earth today! Help me trust You more... increase my faith in Your ability to care for me, to guide me, and to
lead me in Your paths. Help me to wait on You patiently, acknowledging You
as my total source, my provider . . . my total care-giver! You truly are
AWESOME, MAGNIFICENT, HOLY, GLORIOUS, RIGHTEOUS, MIGHTY, and OMNIPOTENT!
There is none like You! Amen!
Have a blessed day!
