Mind Blowing...

So it's Day 2 and the reading is Psalm 34...  I don't know what it is about Mr. Giglio's method that he teaches, but it's getting me to slow down and really consider things I've never considered before...  Here's what hit me this morning...

Verses 4-8...  "I sought the LORD, and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears.  Those who look to Him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.  This poor man called, and the LORD heard him; He saved him out of all his troubles.  The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him, and He delivers them.  Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him."

Now remember, we're talking about GOD...  Sovereign Creator of the Universe...  THE One who holds all things in place...  The One (from yesterday) who is so BIG that He can gather the sea into a jar...  Consider what this Psalm teaches us about Him.

HE is available and HE answers us...  HE delivers us (personally) delivers us from our fears...  HE is our source of joy...  HE hears us when we call...  HE saves us...  HE sends a messenger to watch over us...  HE is our refuge...

To think about our Sovereign, Mighty, Holy God being so intimately involved in my little life that is just a blip on the radar of eternity, just blows my mind...  I can completely understand why David wrote in Psalm 8:4, "What is mankind that You are mindful of them?  Human beings that You care for them?"

I'm looking forward to chewing on this one all day!!  Have a great day!

Thanks for sharing this. I'm writing those verses down to take with me today to work so I can "chew" on them too. Exactly the words my heart needed today.

I just love this! And it is just what I need to hear at this time. I have so many fears looming over my head and it is so good to be reminded that He is in control!
