Psalm 138:8, The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, endure forever—forsake not the works of Your own hands.
What a beautiful thought this morning, that the Lord will perfect what concerns me. Listen to how dictionary.com defines the word perfect;.
Have you ever tried on a pair of shoes that were a ‘perfect fit’? It’s like walking on a cloud! You don’t even look at the price, you just take them up to the counter and buy them! Why? Because it’s like they were hand made just for your feet. Am I right?
That’s what God does. He custom fits us with mercy and loving-kindness. He isn’t a distant God! He gets involved to plan every detail so that we can enjoy life to the full, till it overflows. When He said He would never leave us or forsake us, He was adamant about it. He loves it when we rely on Him, trust in Him and turn our cares over to Him. He loves to surprise us with little things, and when we stop to thank Him, He lavishes more love on us that shows up in so many different ways.
He is perfect and so are His ways. So next time you’re tempted to worry, doubt, grumble or complain, remember that God is God! Unchangeable. He’s working it out so give it time. You may be on a deadline, but God is faithful. Get your expectation level up. Turn up your praise volume. Don’t think so small. Gods not poor, He’s rich and you are His heir.
Thank you Father for your constant care. You amaze me! With all the people in the world vying for Your attention, You never miss a word I speak. Your ear is always tuned into my voice and You especially work out every little detail of my day. I love that! I love being Your own special treasure, made by Your hand. How can I not trust in You? How can I not praise You? How can I not want to have relationship with You? You are my everything and all I am or will ever be, You knew before I was even made. Have a great day, Lord. I love you!
