Focus verses: Jeremiah 51:15-19
As we draw closer to God, there is the tendency to think of Him as our Friend as well as our Redeemer. And He is our friend and redeemer. But He is more than that.
He is the awesome power that created the heavens and the earth. All the universe trembles at His least breath. His word is law over every created thing and creature. That includes us.
People are the highest creation of the Lord because He created us in His own image. In His likeness. We are created to be a reflection of God! Just think of it. He gave us a purpose in life. And He expects us to accomplish the purpose for which He created us.
So how do we accomplish His will in our lives? First, we must seek His will. We must know what He wants us to do. That requires spending time alone in His presence. It requires prayer and supplication. It may even require fasting with prayer.
No temporal satisfaction can match the satisfaction of knowing that you are in the exact center of God’s will for your life. After all, He is the mightiest force in the universe. He had no beginning and will have no end. He goes on forever. He is infinite.
Let us not forget that our finite minds cannot wrap themselves around the entirety of our infinite, infinitely powerful God. Let us never forget our dependence on Him and our pettiness in contrast to His Majesty.
Help us to keep perspective. As we draw closer to You, remind us of Your awesome, awful power and might. Give us a small glimpse of Your majesty to help us see our dependence upon You.
