Is your world as crazy as the one I live in? Sometimes it’s crazy because of the busy-ness. People to see, places to go, things to do. Sometimes, no matter how early you got up in the morning, you’re already late. Sometimes it’s the pressures that you’re facing, or the difficult times you’re unsure of up ahead. Sometimes it’s the bitterness that creeps in when people or things have let you down. So how do we survive in a crazy world? Listen to the Psalmist: Oh come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. For He is our God, And we are the people of His pasture, And the sheep of His hand. (Psalm 95:6–7)
Take a minute and stop and think about the Wonderful God who made you. He is our God. He has graciously adopted us and considers us His “people”. You know it’s only really important individuals who have “people” (as in, “I’ll have my people contact you…”). Since we’re God’s sheep, that makes Him our Shepherd (Ps. 23:1), and that means we really have nothing to worry about.
Take a minute and express your thanks to God. Bow your knee. I’ve been enjoying our trip through the Psalms and noticing how many things the Psalmist is thankful for regarding God. He is patient. He is kind. He is righteous. He knows everything. He can do anything. He will not forsake us. He is our shield. He is faithful. He loves us. Wow. God is good. Would you take a minute and tell Him that?
