Devotion for Saturday, April 28, 2018
“The clouds poured out water; the skies gave forth a sound; Your arrows flashed here and there. The sound of Your thunder was in the whirlwind; the lightnings lit up the world; The earth trembled and shook.” (Psalm 77:17-18)
Does the Lord control the weather? Does the Lord control what happens in the earth? He made everything and all is His. Know that all things are in the Lord’s hands and our egos will never prevail over the Lord. He is the One through whom all things have their being and the One who made all things has always held all things in His hands. Come then to the One who has all things in His hands and know His love.
Lord, the world says we have power over things. Yes, we influence and our sin has damaged, but You O Lord are Sovereign over all things. Lead my heart away from the egotism of this age to see that there is nothing we can do to overcome Your sovereignty. Guide me in the way You would have me go that I would forever know Your goodness and mercy and live in Your love.
Lord Jesus, You did not come into the world to judge the world, for the world is already judged. You came that we might have life and light and walk humbly with You, our God and Savior. Lead me then in the way You would have me go knowing that all things are in Your hands. Help me now and always to see in You the hope of glory that You have brought through Your salvation. Amen.
