Right Sizing

David praised the LORD in the presence of the whole assembly, saying, Praise be to you, O LORD, God of our father Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all. Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all. Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name. – 1 Chronicles 29:10-13

As a people, we like convenience. One stop shopping, one size fits all, the one place for all of your needs. Why complicate things needlessly when we can have everything that we want simply and easily in only one place. Of course this can create some issues. Some stores try to carry everything, but in the process become so large that they become a nightmare to manage and operate. Furthermore, the people who work there become less helpful – having to try and have knowledge of too many things. How fortunate we are to not have the same worry with our Father in heaven.
While worldly entities can become too big, we take comfort in knowing that we have a very big God. We join David in celebrating this fact. Because of God’s greatness, we have nothing to worry about and everything comes to our benefit through His power and might. He is big enough to manage everything. What may appear insurmountable to us is nothing to Him. God simply isn’t ruled or controlled by things in the natural world because He is above all of those things. What’s more, because we serve a supernatural God, we too can operate in that place where the world and its struggles need not control or define us. No matter how difficult things may be in your life, you refuse to allow any other thoughts or struggles to lure you away from the power and strength of the Father. You know Him to be the one true source of power in your life and the only one you need to rely upon to live.

 

 

I pray that you will be blessed in every way as you look to the Lord today. May His love surround you. May His wisdom fill your mind. Be emboldened to make decisions and to create products knowing that God is the source of your creativity and success. God knows you, desires to build you up and to make you the woman He has always desired you to be. It is my prayer that you will make great strides toward achieving these things in every area of your life today. Know that you serve an amazing God.
