We Are Limited, But He Is Not!

“Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God!  How unsearchable are his judgments

and how inscrutable his ways!

“For who has known the mind of the Lord,

or who has been his counselor?

Or who has given a gift to him

that he might be repaid?

For from him and through him and to him are all things.

To him be glory forever. Amen.”

Romans 11:33-36

* * * * *

In the hubbub of the day

the rush of activities

or in the still of the night

when thoughts and fears

rush in and continue

to clamour

and keep us awake

take heart

and remember the God who loves us

more than we could ever know;

whose grace and mercy gathers us to himself

and by faith keeps us ever near.

Listen.

He whispers: ‘Fear not,

I have overcome the world…

and all those things you are worried about.

Lean on me.

I will not buckle under

your load of care.

My strength will be yours.

I will not let you fall.’

Lord God, even though we cannot understand your ways we trust you to know what is best for us and our loved ones, and that your love surrounds us day and night.  Thank and praise you for such undeserved favor.  Through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior we commend ourselves and all things to you this day.  In His name we pray, Amen.
