Have you ever misplaced something? Lately, I think I’ve misplaced my keys twice and my coffee once. Goes to show you what I value most. NEVER lose your coffee! Retracing your steps to find something takes a whole lot of time that most of us just don’t have.
I’m reminded this morning of how many times I’ve misplaced God. Incidents and events that seem to knock me off my feet and cause me to lose sight of a very large God. I search for him through a maze of problems, fears and failures only to discover that He’s right where He said He’d be. As close as the mention of His name.
Once again, I’ve made all my problems bigger than my God. Creator of the universe, how silly of me to even think You’re not aware of whats going on in my life. I magnify you, your name is above all else. “Bigger than all my questions, bigger than all my fears, God is bigger than any mountain that I can or cannot see.”
Forgive me for misplacing your position, for humanizing you. After all is said and done, You’ve ordered my steps, surrounded me with loving kindness and tender mercies. “Ah, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You” (Jeremiah 32:17). And so I end my eventful week. With all the tornados of life, You have rescued me yet again by reminding me how small my problems are compared to You.
Thank You for leading me and guiding me into this truth. You began a good work in me and will be faithful to complete it. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen
