The Lord Be With You Today!
Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand,
or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens?
Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket,
or weighed the mountains on the scales and the hills in a balance?
(The answer is a resounding "No one except God, the Mighty Creator!"
Only He has created this place we call home from the chaos and darkness
that existed before He spoke creation into being.
Yet, our recurring tendency is to pare God down to something human-sized.
Since we can’t really comprehend Him,
we try to make Him more understandable,
but He is without limit, without boundary in His power and capability
and in His wisdom and understanding.
If we really believe He is Who He says He is,
then the troubles and trials we face today
fade against the light of His power and might,
against His desire to carry and protect us,
against His sure and true sovereignty and majesty.
Even as He created the waters and dust of the earth,
holding them in the hollow of His hand,
He created us and all that makes up our lives,
using whatever trials that come against us to reveal Himself
and His redemptive and saving power more clearly to us.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
