I love the idea of God as King of the Universe. All of it is in His control. Nothing escapes His grasp. There is nothing He doesn’t see or know.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His love for those who fear Him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. Psalm 103:11-12
In the great expanse of the Heavens, He still knows that I am like dust verse 14 says. Dust compared to the expanses of the heavens is kind of a ridiculous comparison to me. It’s like trying to figure out eternity or the ridiculous love God has for us. It simply doesn’t compute in my brain but I think it’s essential we try anyway. That, my friends, is part of loving the Lord with all your mind.
All that to say, it is so comforting to me that each morning I wake up and give my day to Him, the one who has it all in His grasp anyway, He is capable. Not only capable, but willing and desiring to handle all the details for my life. He knows the monotony and wants to show me more of Him in even something as routine as same ole same ole. He is watching over His word to perform it.
I feel like I know so many with broken hearts over unrealized dreams. Over unmet desires. This is my prayer for you if you are in that place.
Abba father I thank you that you are the King of the universe. That your love is as great as the heavens are high above the earth. I praise you that you do know the details of our lives. That you are intimately acquainted with them. That you manage them. I thank you that you care about them. I pray for your peace to come to each one who doesn’t know that. To every person who has forgot how great your love for us is. Let us not be able to maintain our regrets and frustrations and doubts when we think of the way you love us. Come meet with your children. Speak truth and life to the broken hearts. Revive your spirit in us. Give us a new vigor. Restore our spirit Lord for we were fearfully and wonderfully made! I thank you that you who did not spare your own son, is also willing to graciously give us all things! I thank you that your Spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in us! Let your people walk forth in the confidence of that. Let us lay aside every weight and sin that distracts us and run with endurance for you alone satisfy. Thank you Abba that you hear. That you listen. Even now you are doing a good work in us and will bring it to completion!
