“From the Lord comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people.” Psalm 3:8.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: Genesis 18-19, Psalm 3, and Luke 7.
We are not calling the shots.
We think that we are in control but we really aren’t.
Why is it snowing now? I would have wanted something else. But God, the Master of the Big Picture, has brought snow to where I live.
I have access to God via prayer. God hears my prayer. My prayer can move the Hand of God.
I could pray that the snow would end and it would be 75 degrees and sunny. That would be a foolish prayer. I need the Mind of God when I pray. My prayers are to be “according to His Will.”
If God has chosen to put snow where I live, then I must react accordingly. Are there preparations and precautions that come to mind?
If I am tight with God, I will be constantly conversing with Him. I will thank Him for what He has given me. I will ask Him what I should be doing about this-or-that.
I must never try to function apart from Him. I must ask Him to bless me as I represent Him this day. I must ask Him to get my attention when I am straying from Him. He’s only a prayer away!
“Lord, thank You for the good news in today’s verse: my deliverances and blessings come from You. You are a great God. You are in charge. Help me to act accordingly, this day.”
God has not died and you are not boss.
