He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands


Scripture

Psalm 24

  1The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it,
       the world, and all who live in it;

 2 for he founded it upon the seas
       and established it upon the waters.

Observation

The only time we can use all encompassing language to describe anyone or anything is when we are talking about God.

Application

We are taught, “Never say Never,” and Always is not a good word to use either.  Don’t group all members of any group together and say “they are all just alike.”  In other words, don’t use all encompassing terms.  But there is one exception to that rule, and that is when we are talking about God.

The Bible is full of terms like this about the Lord.  All Things were created by Him, Nothing is impossible for God, the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting, and we could go on and on.

We can not apply our rules and restrictions to God, nor to His power, mercy, grace, or Love.  I have seen that in THIS world things are not often set in stone, and even the things that are sometimes get broken (See Exodus 32).  But it is comforting to know that when we are speaking of the attributes of our Heavenly Father – we can speak in absolutes.

Prayer

Father I thank you and praise you that you are a God on whom we can always rely.  Your mercy and grace are fresh every morning, your forgivness is available to all who believe.  Forgive me for my inconsistencies, and help me to mimic your steadfast, rock solid, never ending love.  Thank you for being my Rock of Ages!

Love Michael

Yieldedness

I Yield my inconsistencies, and yearn for Gods steady hand.
