“WE REALLY NEED YOU, GOD!”
Little Jeanie and her Mom were saying their “Good Night Prayers” together. Suddenly, she said in a bold voice, “God, please take care of Yourself. If anything happens to You, we’re in a great, big mess. We really need You, God.”
Thankfully, Isaiah had some comforting words for Little Jeanie. Knowing others would have the same concern, God inspired him to write, “Don’t you know that the Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the earth? He never grows faint or weary!”
What encouraging words from the Lord Himself! Here we see Isaiah describing our God’s power to create, His power to sustain what He creates, and His presence to help when we call upon Him. Our God is almighty and all-powerful. Yet, with all of His greatness, He cares for each of us individually and our concerns and our cares are never beneath Him or beyond Him.
Our God cannot be explained and when we try to describe Him with our finite mind and our limited vocabulary, we only reveal our small, inadequate understanding of His greatness.
But this we know: There is no limit to His love and no end to His forgiveness. No problem is too large for Him to solve nor any person too small for Him to recognize. He is not kind one moment and hateful the next. He is not strong one hour and weak the next. He does not want what is best for us one moment and then forgetful of us the next. Our God is amazing!
Prayer: Thank You, God, for being our God. Thank You for being present today and every day, and for Your promise that You will never leave us nor forsake us. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
