Our God...yes, our God. Is that enough? Is it enough to proclaim? What more do we have to offer Him other than our words...you are my God? My God has several meanings...these are just a few: You are my God, in whom I trust. You are my God, my Rock, my Refuge, my Strength.
When the "something, terrible, awful" happens in our lives...how do we respond? I find myself in the midst of the "something, terrible, awful"....yet, even in the midst of this thing...God has shown so much of His glory. But I will be honest with you, there is a little bit of that wants to hide this under a bushel and hope it all goes away. And tonight, I heard God remind me: Because I am Sovereign, nothing can happen that hasn't already been sifted through My hands first. In the midst of this thing - we recognize that God has a plan and sometimes that plan can get a little twisted... because God allows those bends/twists in the road we journey on. Embrace where He is leading, trust where He is leading, and encourage the person that is experiencing this more as they walk through this journey. Isn't that what we are called to do? Don't give them words they want to hear, give them words of wisdom..praying for God to season them with grace and the words that would only be what He has ordained and placed on our lips.
The greatest lessons we learn come when we don't harbor a bitter root and don't root in the pigsty...and understand this: God is who He says He is. God will do what He says He will do. I am who God says I am. I can do all things through Christ. God's Word is alive and active in me. (Beth Moore)
So what do we offer Him? Our undivided hearts. Is my God enough??? He is more than enough! Praise Him for who He is...he King of Kings, the LORD of Lords.
Amen, and Amen!
