Clarity To Your Day

Who but God goes up to heaven and comes back down?
Who holds the wind in his fists?
Who wraps up the oceans in his cloak?
Who has created the whole wide world?
What is his name—and his son’s name?
Tell me if you know!
5 Every word of God proves true.
He is a shield to all who come to him for protection.
— Proverbs 30:4-5

All too often I can relate to the saying of Agur.  At times i feel weary, worn out, incompetent, lacking common sense and in no way wise.  It’s at these times that I’m focused on myself and my own abilities or lack thereof. The more I rely on my own talents or strength the more I wear myself out.  And the more tired I am, the more mistakes I make only adding to my frustrations.  It’s at this point that I have to remind myself that “every word of God proves true”.  

When life is overwhelming and spinning out of control just remember that God is all powerful and ultimately in control.  He is Jehovah Jireh - The Lord who sees and provides.   He is El Shaddai - God all powerful and all sufficient.  He is Jehovah Shalom -The Lord our Peace.  Begin your day in His presence so you can refocus your thoughts on who He is.   God reminded Job that he was not present when God "laid the foundations of the earth” or“commanded the morning to appear and caused the dawn to rise in the east”  With your thoughts on His awesomeness you will find that you actually have more energy and can make wiser decisions.  He will bring clarity and focus to your day.   

Lord help me trust the truth of your Word so that I may have the strength to be all you created me to be.
