A second Great Depression…
An unpredictable virus…
In my short lifetime, I’ve never seen such a wave of gloomy news. It’s quite easy to get overwhelmed and anxious these days. You don’t even have to be an avid headline scanner; being in isolation is enough.
Even though our problems are likely worse than we realize, we serve a God who is greater than our problems. It is so easy to lose sight of His power and majesty as we trudge through our daily tasks. If we allow ourselves to forget who God is, fear will inevitably dominate our hearts. Knowing God and standing in awe of Him is the key to a quietly confident heart. April’s scripture writing plan focused on handing our anxieties over to God. For May, we will focus our thoughts on God’s power, wisdom, and might. It is my earnest hope that our anxieties will diminish as we compare them with the mighty power of God.
The bulk of the scripture writing is taken from Isaiah and Job because they get into detail about God’s creation. As Job astutely observes, “these are but the outskirts of his ways…” Passages in Exodus, Deuteronomy, Nehemiah, and the Psalms express how the ancients addressed and felt about Almighty God. The final passages of the month in Revelation and Isaiah, provide us with a glimpse into the awe the heavenly beings feel in God’s presence.
We are blessed to be loved by our Heavenly Father. He is near us, hears our cries, and loves us with an everlasting love. It is such a blessing to be known and still so loved by one who is so powerful!
