The omnipotence of God…a fearful reality.

Mind of Christ  |  October 27

Good and upright is the LORD; therefore He teaches sinners in the way.
The humble He guides in justice, and the humble He teaches His way.
Who is the man that fears the LORD? Him shall He teach in the way He chooses.
The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him, and He will show them His covenant.
“Now therefore, go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall say.”

Psalm 25:8-9; 12, 14, Exodus 4:12

Father, You say that Your secrets are revealed to those that have a fear of the Lord. Help us know what You mean here by “fear”. We know that being afraid of Your power is a natural reaction. When you literally move the earth we are fearful. Teach us to know the difference between that kind of fear and fear that comes upon the disobedient.

Help us this day, to transition from temporal, here and now fear, to a sense of security that no matter what happens, we are Your children, promised an eternity of safety, security and goodness with You.

Give us a quiet assurance of Your presence in our hearts when it seems everything here, in this temporary place, is falling apart. Place answers in our mouth to those who need to hear our witness. In Your name we pray, amen.

March 4, 2021 Do we all have to be preachers? March 3, 2021 Did God know you would "choose" Him? March 2, 2021 Was today an opportunity realized or passed up? March 1, 2021 Are we a conduit of God's gifts? February 28, 2021 Should we expect to suffer as a result of our witness? February 27, 2021 When you meet Jesus, will He say, welcome friend... February 26, 2021 Private prayer, a compelling prelude to God's constant presence February 25, 2021 Love God and hate our neighbor...not an option. February 24, 2021 Do you mean that God knew whether I would choose to love Him? February 23, 2021 Did you say enduring persecution is a good thing?
