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!

No Need to Rehearse

In my Bible study this morning, the author is talking about rehearsing our troubles being like experiencing them over and over.  That is certainly not necessary.  Why even bother praying about them, if we continue to relive them?

Joshua 1:5,9 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…Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and courageous.  Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

No Rehearsal Needed

As we go through trials, we are strengthened spiritually.  When we rehearse our troubles, we experience them over and over and that is not necessary.  We need not multiply suffering in this way.  Joshua 1:5,9 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….Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and courageous.  Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
