In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. Psalm 102:25
All praise, honor and glory belong to you oh Lord. You are the Alpha and the Omega, you have always been. And yet….. you care about me. How can this be so?
In the world, the mega rich move people like pawns on a chessboard. Politicians, writers, media, educators and the masses, are all just puppets to their commands. Commands that lead to what? Certainly not a better life! No, commands that lead to more power and influence for them. More money, more control, to live in defiance of what is good, and right and holy. They have no cares for real people, for the poor or even the middle class. We will be crushed if we even try to ask them, why they do the things they do.
Yet they are only people, flawed and sinful, they must stand before the Lord and give an account for all they have done (Hebrews 4:13). For the Lord is eternal and reigns over all. He created the earth, the sun and the stars. It’s you oh Lord, that truly holds control and power in your hands. You could crush us in a heartbeat, make us bow down before you and obey your every whim. Yet, you do not.
Your love and goodness, know no bounds. You are ever mindful of all your children. Caring deeply for each one of us, from the mega rich to the lowest beggar, you love us all. You give us freewill, you don’t force us to love you and obey you. You gently call us, and show us a better way; a way of love, joy and peace.
Who am I to receive such a gift, such privilege and honor from God Almighty, the Eternal One?
I am His. I am His child.
My hope remains in Jesus Christ alone, for He will one day bring justice and righteousness to this earth and reign supreme. I will rest in His care and love for me and be forever thankful of all He has done for me.
Prayer: Thank you Lord, for your great love for us. Give us peace during these trying times and patience to endure until your return. We love you Lord. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
