King Of The World!
Many a time I’ve tried to bring God down to my level. Acting as if my life (and everything it entails) was much bigger than Him. I remember instances where I was always running out of time for this thing and that thing. From rent payments and other bills to family and relationship woes, most times I was having a nightmare that needed mending quickly or else…..! I needed a “fixer” like Olivia Pope. Matter of fact one better than she.
God has promised to be with me in all things, but I never took him at His Word. I treated Him like I would any other human… skeptically! How could He handle all of my problems? Would He really even want to? Those are the questions and feelings I possessed towards Him.
In this weeks “Song of the Week” artist Natalie Grant expresses the same feelings that I shared. In one verse she belts; “I tried to fit you in the walls inside my mind
I try to keep you safely in between the lines
I try to put you in the box that I’ve designed
I try to pull you down so we are eye to eye”.
That verse spoke volumes to me because I know this feeling all too well. It also reminds me of Job and how he questioned God and His infinite power once he was attacked and robbed by the enemy. In the end God had to remind Job of who He is, and restored him greater than before!
We must always remember that God started it all and holds it all together. He is the Alpha & Omega. The Beginning and the End. If anyone we can trust with our lives it’s the King of the World!!
