While standing at the bus stop this morning I began to just worship Jesus Christ. I’m going through a few things in my life and I need to release them ALL to the Lord. That time in worship although short in time was infinitely rewarding. I expressed to the Lord of my life who He is to me. When I heard the words I was declaring, it ignited my faith and made EVERY problem seem minuscule. The truth is every problem, every situation, every oppressive thought, every anxiety, every worry, everything is minuscule when seen from the perspective of God. Sometimes worship is so necessary to simply remind you of who He is in your life. I needed that moment this morning to quiet my soul and ignite my spirit. My faith is greater, my problems diminished and my perspective is that of God’s. He’s given me His sight and I am hopeful more than ever that all is well.
1 Peter 5: 6-8 says, “6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, 7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” There is so much wealth in those 3 verses but my heart rests on verse 7. This morning I had to cast all my care upon Him because He cares for me. The Lord cares for me; He cares about what I am feeling, what I am thinking, and what I am experiencing. He cares for how I am relating to others and how I am relating to Him. He cares for how I am walking by faith and He cares even when I am missing the mark. He cares for me even when I feel like I am all by myself. Jesus is a good God, the greatest God, the best God, my only God. I am able to rest in Him and be at peace. What greater revelation is there than to cast all your stuff upon Him and rest in knowing that He’s got you. He’s taking care of you; He’s concerned about you; He’s mindful of you; He sees you! Hallelujah in my sweet worship voice. There’s nothing loud and boisterous about this moment because I’m in worship with the lover of my soul.
Today my soul was trying to get the best of me, but there was enough Word in me to know how to just give it over to the ONE who is GREAT enough to handle it in His way and in His timing. T’is so sweet to trust in Jesus and that is what is boils down to…trust. Jesus never fails! He has the best track record so where is the failure? It’s all me wanting to figure things out on my own and apart from everyone including Him. He’s always my audience of One so why do I think I can in anyway exclude Him? It’s impossible so I acknowledge my wayward thinking and repent. I have disrobed myself of unrighteous (selfish) thinking and now my apparel is the sweet smelling savor of His majesty and kingdom glory. I am His; I am His child no matter how old I am in Him. He’s always my Father..Hallelujah!
