Day 14. No Doubt.
Sometimes I wonder how much confidence God really has in me…in us. Don’t get me wrong, I know He loves us immensely and has called us to greatness. But He also knows how short our memories are. And how frail our frames. So, once again we come to Sabbath. To rest. To remember.
Sure, just six fleeting days ago we were here remembering–determining to walk with the confidence that He is I AM. But, we didn’t really fully get it, did we? Nor have we made the six-day journey with confidence. Confidence, not in what we can do, but in what He can do in us.
Thus, we stressed, we worried, we carried heavy loads alone… we doubted if it was possible after all. We settled for less. We settled for us.
So, again today He says “stop.” He says you can’t. But I can.
Look up. Count the stars. The Maker of all is at your disposal, residing in you through Jesus Christ.
Have no doubt…He can live this day well in you.
I lift my eyes up to You, Jesus. You are my daily bread. Give me the grace to rest in knowing You are God. Be glorified in me as I surrender my little strength to Yours, and wait on You to flex Your might in me. “I love You, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.” You are my I AM. Amen.
“For He Himself knows our frame, He is mindful that we are dust.” Psalm 103:14
