An Awesome Creator

As you read Psalm 46:10, I want you to do something different. I want to ask you to be still. That’s right. No movement, just stillness before the Lord. Take a few minutes and allow your mind to clear away all the distractions of this world. Then think about this. You have a relation- ship with the Creator of the universe. I don’t know about you, but for me, this truth never gets old! He sees you. He knows you. He loves you.
As you enjoy a moment of stillness before the Lord, focus on one important theological truth. God is our awesome Creator. He has always been in control, even before time began. Nothing takes the Creator by surprise. Nothing is beyond the Creator’s ability to control.
We are the creation. God made us. He formed and fashioned us. Nothing about our lives is a surprise or an accident. The Creator we serve knows everything about us. He knows everything that has happened to us. No thought can come into our minds and no words can come out of our mouths without Him knowing it. Psalm 139:4 beautifully states this truth: “Before a word is on my tongue, you know it completely, O Lord.”
God is our awesome Creator. Each day we need to take time and meditate on this truth. As we consider it, we recognize the fact that God is God and we are not. Accepting this truth places us in the position to be less worried about the things taking place during our day. As a result, a new discipline will develop in our daily walk with God. We will recognize that God is in control of every aspect of our life. There is nothing that we face when we wake up in the morning that God cannot handle. There is no worry too big that He cannot bear. When we go to sleep at night, we can rest easy, knowing that He has us in the palm of His hands.
No matter how out of control your life may feel, God is on His throne. I love the fact that Scripture tells us that God will be exalted in the earth. Sometimes life is hard and we can wonder where God is at and if He knows what is going on in our world. Right now, you can take a depth breath and know that He sees everything. He sees the hurt and the confusion. He sees the injustices and the pain. He sees it all! In light of this truth, I want to invite you to rest in Him today. Trust Him to know what is best for you in the middle of your challenging situations. He loves you and He has a plan for you life! Ask Him to show you the next step to take. Then take it. Sometimes small steps turn out to be big steps, especially when they are directed by an awesome Creator.
