Rest in His will
Or loose the cords of Orion?
And guide the Bear with her satellites?
Or fix their rule over the earth?
I lay my hand on my mouth.
And that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted.
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.
Forgive me when I give in to doubt and worry about circumstances which are out of my control. Forgive me when I try to remove situations that are painful when I know You are at work and nothing can thwart Your plans for me.
- 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,
