The Power of God

If one really wants to be humbled and in awe, he needs to contemplate the power of God, from finite to infinite.  As I was looking out my window at my plants growing toward the light, a flock of birds flew over in perfect formation.  Even as they change directions, they are aligned.  The one God governs All and how can we ever doubt that Truth.  Often we think we are alone with our challenges, but how can that be if you look out at nature?  Joshua 1:5 reads, “No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life.  As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.”  To me, that is very clear and reassures me of my protection.  Either God is all or nothing.  I choose All!

Good Old Days

My husband just called me into his office to listen to a new song written about “the good old days” and I had a difficult time with it.  Not only do I think we need not live in the past, but today is the good old day!  To me, that is like living  life while looking  through our rearview mirror.  Immediately, Hebrews 4:16 came to thought which states, “Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”  God is our only need and when we put Him first, Good will be revealed to us.  Only Good is going on when our focus is positive and that is not a “Pollyanna” approach but one experiencing security.  Not relying on oneself, but always on God.
