In this pressure cooker we call life there are many challenges, obstacles, trials and burdens that we all bear. Trials are the stuff of which life is made. Job said, “Man that is born of woman is of few days and full of trouble” (Job 14:1). That man should know.
As you have already begun your week, many of you, like me, are sitting down to plan your work and organize your efforts. No doubt you are facing deadlines, timetables, due dates and, quite honestly, if you were able to do so, you would clone yourself in order to double your efforts. Well, take some time to consider the Lord!
As I was reading in Psalm ninety the Lord used three words in verse two to speak to my heart: “Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.” That is really all I needed to remember today…He is God! I know enough about Him to know what implications that holds. Knowing that though I am a man, He is God, clarifies my thinking, my agenda, my goals, my plans, etc.
What things are impossible for me are possible with Him. What things are over my head are under His feet. Though I may feel like I am fighting for victory, I should simply claim it because it is already mine in Jesus Christ. “Thou art God” means that God is always in the present. He is current. He is immediate. God is with me NOW. He cannot fail me. He will not forsake me.
“Thou art God” suggests that the same “dwelling place in all generations” (Ps. 90:1), as was the refuge of Moses, David, Abraham, Paul and others, is my dwelling place as well. No wonder David said, “Thou I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil; for thou art with me.”
Realize that no man lives a life that is void of any assistance, for “Thou art God.”
Have a great day!
