“Also at that time, people will say,
“Look at what’s happened! This is our God!
We waited for him and he showed up and saved us!
This GOD, the one we waited for!
Let’s celebrate, sing the joys of his salvation.
GOD’s hand rests on this mountain!”
There is an ongoing battle – do I want only my Lord or what he gives? Presence or presents? “I will trust him if…” has no place our relationship. It reveals that I really don’t know him at all. If I am progressively and intimately getting to know him, I will trust. Doubt destroys growth. Subtly, desiring what he gives more than him brings everything to a dead stop.
Lord, my prayer today is, “You are more than enough!” Regardless of what has happened, this is true. And, when you act, please remind me to point others to you and keep from being so enamored with the gift you gave.
