He’s got the Whole World in His Hands

30 Aug

God’s Word: Psalms 81

God’s attribute: (6) God. . . .takes the world off our shoulders.

God’s message to me:

I never place the worries of the world on your shoulders but you do it anyway.  Every little thing possible to worry about—you do.  But it is totally fruitless—unless of course you determine to do whatever you can to change the situation.  Examine your worries!  Are they things you have absolutely no control over?  If so—leave them with me and relax.  Is there something you could do about it with the talents and passions I have given you?  Then do it—take action.

That is all I ask—that every individual do whatever they can for others—and in the doing, do it as unto me.  There is where the real blessing comes in.  It makes a difference in how you look at the task and it makes a big difference for the person who is receiving the kind deed—because you are doing it with a pure motive.

Do your good deeds with pure motives and I will take care of your basic needs.  Don’t do good deeds just to use as advertising.  Do them with a pure motive and let me take care of the business plan.  This is really my “taking the world off your shoulders.”  Just focus on living for me by doing for others and I will take care of the rest.  So few people are willing to do this.  Everyone thinks they need to watch out for themselves first of all and then toss others the scraps of their life.  Just listen to Me—follow my business plan you will have your needs well supplied.

God’s question for me: Can I count on you to take action by doing what you can do about your concerns, then leave the things you have no control over to me?

God’s promise to me:  “Wherever you go—I will be with you”.  (That also means Whatever we do—he will be with us.  The important thing for me is simply to trust and move forward.)

One Response to “He’s got the Whole World in His Hands”

    When will we ever remember the goodness of our God. Israel would forget and we forget. However, God was faithful then and He is faithful today. He yearned for Israel and He yearns for us today. I love verse 18 “I would feed you with the finest of the wheat, and with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.” Why can’t we pay attention!
