Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Overwhelmed? No!

Psalm 8:3-4 (ESV)
     3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,

the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,

 4  what is man that you are mindful of him,

and the son of man that you care for him?

Father the perplexity and pressure of human problems do at times feel overwhelming. From our finite and feeble view there are circumstances beyond our comprehension and control. But these are the moments when we need to remember Psalm 113:5-7 (ESV) “Who is like the LORD our God, who is seated on high, 6 who looks far down on the heavens and the earth? 

7 He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap,”

Again Father you remind us of the knowledge and compassion you have for us in Isaiah 43:2 (ESV) ”When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;”

Father there is never really a time when we should feel overwhelmed, whatever the condition, if we keep our focus and faith on you. Your power is true, your promise is faithful and that is why we can rely on 1 Corinthians 10:13 (ESV) “No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.”

Thank you Father that you not only hold the universe in your hands, but that you especially hold our lives in your heart. And that nothing can touch us without your will, for our good and your glory.

Through Jesus our Savior we pray and praise You! Amen.
