I mention this because I am a very high Concrete Sequential. Therefore, I live very much in the physical world and see one event as being either the cause or the result of the one next to it. This mindset often handcuffs me from realizing that the God I worship is indeed GOD. Sometimes I am so restricted by my world that I forget that my God is the One who created it and still has control over all that is in it. Sometimes I forget that He can do so much more than I can even imagine.
I am reminded of this truth whenever my world shifts a bit, and some of the foundation I have created becomes a little less stable. Times like these cause sadness and worry, loss and uncertainty, and it is difficult to remember that through all of it, God is GOD––loving, caring, watching, protecting. He is the God of the universe. If He can form the heavens out of nothing, if He can create the beautiful scene pictured, if He can calm the seas, then He can handle the events of my life. He knows what is going on, and though I may not understand, I can trust Him, for He does know what He is doing.
Because of God’s perfect timing and personal interest, on May 5th He reinforced this truth in three ways: through Josh Wilson’s song “Fall Apart,” through Royal Tailor’s song “Remain,” and then the May 5th entry in Jesus Calling read: “Relax in the knowledge that the One who controls your life is totally trustworthy. Come to me with confident expectation. There is nothing you need that I cannot provide.”
God is indeed very good and very real and very personal. While so much in our life changes, He is always the same and always there. Yes, Ps. 46:10 is truly my life verse: “Be still and know that I am God.”
