All That I Need

“Your (God’s) promises have been thoroughly tested, and your servant loves them.” Psalm 119:140 (NIV)

Late Fall and I just switched out all my clothes for colder weather. The storage boxes taking up space in my bedroom floor just had to go. And after a few 40 degree days, I was confident cold weather was here to stay. But then, we do live in Virginia. A state of pure unpredictability. Few sunny days and I found myself digging out something cooler to wear. Evidently Fall is taking a temporary break.

While we definitely can’t predict the weather, there are some things we can predict. We can always count on God singing over us in the morning – what a sweet sound. We can always depend on His strength to get us through the chaos of life – amazing power. We can always find shelter in His presence in the midst of a demanding day – peaceful blessing. We can always rest assured He is hovering near to the broken hearted – sweetest promise. We can always gain perspective knowing He is our wisdom – divine insight giver. Everything we need can be found in Him.

So why would we ever question uncertain days? Why would we ever depend on self instead of trusting God? Why would we ever run away from the One who longs to draw us close?

Sometimes in the midst of unpredictability, we cling to the visible. We’re looking for tangible instead of resting in His promises. We desire face to face interaction not long distance. We long for a huge hug and a you’re going to be okay speech. But the unseen is where God is working – behind the scenes, yet fully surrounding us – going before and behind. There is never a moment when we are out of His sight or His reach. God never takes a break or becomes unstable – He’s the same yesterday, today and forever. And that is something we can count on.

“Father in the midst of many unknowns – You are the One who holds it all together. Thank You for being more than enough for all that we need.”

For His Glory
