Rest in His will

“Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades,
Or loose the cords of Orion?
“Can you lead forth a  constellation in its season,
And guide the Bear with her satellites?
“Do you know the ordinances of the heavens,
Or fix their rule over the earth?
Job 38:31-33
“Behold, I am insignificant; what can I reply to You?
I lay my hand on my mouth.
Job 40:1
Then the LORD answered Job out of the storm and said,
“Now gird up your loins like a man
Job 40:6,7a
Then Job answered the LORD and said,
“I know that You can do all things,
And that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted.
Job 42:1,2

 

Dear Father in heaven,

I cannot imagine the loss and suffering that Job experienced. When Elihu tried to counsel Job about Your ways, You stepped in. You reminded them Who You are and that we can NOT offer good counsel without knowledge. You are the source of all knowledge and our questions and trust need to come to You first. Forgive me when I seek an “expert” when You are the Expert of all!

You laid the foundations of the earth and all the universe!

You set the seas within a boundary.

You placed each star and season in their place, and none of us can disturb them.

You cause the rain to fall and the grass to grow.

My power and authority only come through Jesus. Truly, without You I can do nothing.

Heavenly Father, I bow in Your presence and worship You. There is nothing outside Your view or control.

  • I rejoice in You , Father!
  • I rest in You, Almighty God.
  • I will receive the events that come today (no matter how difficult) as coming from Your hand and
  • I will trust You with the outcome.
  • I will trust You alone to act according to Your power and Your will.
  • I will gird up my loins and go about kingdom work rather than fret.
  • I will trust You completely when I pray that not my will, but Thine be done.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.
