Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Monday to you all! Well…here we go again…another beginning to another new week…and I don’t know about you; but I’m anticipating the presence of God in this brand new day!
As we begin our time together, I pray that we will come to truly see how powerful our God is…and how His power can help us to rise above any problem we may face…Amen!!
One day, I was sitting in my office…just staring out the window…and as I looked around the yard, I began to see how the trees and all the beauty that surrounded me at that moment could never be, without this powerful God I serve…One who not only creates this beauty; but sustains and controls it each day. As I continued to think on what I had been observing…I truly began to connect with a power that made my circumstances seem as nothing.
You know…I think that there can be times, when we become so caught up in what our circumstances are attempting to convey to us; that after a while, we begin to feel convinced that this so-called power that stems from these problems, could possibly be even greater than the power of God.
At a time in my life, when I felt so overwhelmed by the problems I was facing; God lead me to some Bible verses in Job 26; so today, I would like to share verses 1-4, 7-10 and 13-14 with you…and we read… “Then Job replied: 2) “How you have helped the powerless! How you have saved the arm that is feeble! 3) What advice you have offered to one without wisdom! And what great insight you have displayed! 4) Who has helped you utter these words? And whose spirit spoke from your mouth? 7) He spreads out the northern skies over empty space; he suspends the earth over nothing. 8) He wraps up the waters in his clouds, yet the clouds do not burst under their weight. 9) He covers the face of the full moon, spreading his clouds over it. 10) He marks out the horizon on the face of the waters for a boundary between light and darkness. 13) By his breath the skies became fair; his hand pierced the gliding serpent. 14) And these are but the outer fringe of his works; how faint the whisper we hear of him! Who then can understand the thunder of his power?”
Just think…God becomes strength to the powerless…and He speaks to the spirit of the one without wisdom. He is the one…that on His own; can enter the heart…to give us the thoughts and words that can steer us clear from total destruction. He is also the One who spreads the sky over empty space and suspends this earth in mid-air, without any other thing to hold it up. Then He takes hold of the waters and stores them up within the clouds and yet they do not burst. He also hides the moon behind the clouds by day, until evening returns once more…and then He uses the waters for a boundary between light and darkness…and the one I love the most; is when His breath alone is able to make the skies fair…and just think…this is only a faint whisper or a sample of who He really is…a great, mighty and powerful God.
Can you imagine how our faith could soar above despair…just by focusing on who God truly is? I think that if we could take our thoughts away from what the problem is attempting to convey to us…to focus on the power that is contained within this awesome and mighty God; then our faith would truly supersede the fear that stems from these circumstances we face.
No matter what you may be facing today…and no matter how discouraging life may seem at this time; there is One who is greater than all these thoughts that attempt to bring us low…and all we need to do; is to get our focus back on God’s power, rather than the so-called power of a circumstance. I have come to truly see that when I take some time out, from a problem that I may be facing…to just look out my window and quietly observe this powerful God at work; that this is when the problem doesn’t seem so overwhelming, as it once was…which allows the power of this great and mighty God to kick in and bring back the faith I once lost.
As we close our time together, my prayer for you today; is that you too will be able to rise above the so-called power of a weak circumstance…to experience a God that is and will always be more powerful than any problem we face…God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
