Psalm 50:10-11 (New King James Version)
10 For every beast of the forest is Mine,
And the cattle on a thousand hills.
11 I know all the birds of the mountains,
And the wild beasts of the field are Mine.
God has been teaching me about His provision and trusting Him in these uncertain times. He has also been teaching about about who He is as my FATHER God. I was reminded of this verse a few weeks ago and I sat and thought about how He owns the cattle on 1,000 hills. At first I pictured the small rolling hills that we have in Georgia. Wow, 1,000 hills. And then it was like God was saying, no - think bigger. So I pictured 1,000 mountains. Whoa. I was in awe and almost reassured that He was showing me a bigger picture. And then it was like He was saying to -- the point here is that I own it all. He owns it all. Everything. Every resource and every bill to pay and every meal for our family. Every spiritual resource of heaven... and every natural resource of earth are at His fingertips. He owns it all.
He's teaching us more and more about being His children, and learning to see Him as a good Father. He loves us. He has good plans for our lives. More than that, that He is the King of Kings, and He still calls us His children. Amazing. All the Kings daughter has to do... is to ask Daddy. When we come to Him, as His children, and ask that He would provide for the needs of our family, He does. It almost sounds simple when I write it out like this and re read it, but it's been a profound lesson for us. It also brings peace, comfort, and great hope as we begin to see God for who He really is... He really is GOOD! He is trustworthy.
So instead of the doom and gloom of the news today, let's look for God to move in our lives. Let's wait expectantly on the Lord today... Come in power Father. I love You and I trust You. You are so good. I know that your plans are perfect and that your timing is never early or late... your timing is perfect too. Please fill our home with your presence today, Father. We want You. We need You. We want more of You, Father. Amen.
