Promise #182 – Wednesday July 1, 2015
Promise #181: I made the heavens by My Word and I breathed the stars into existence.
Our God and Father is so big that He created the heavens just by a word! He is so powerful that just a breath from His mouth caused all of the stars to come into being. When you think of this promise, take time to reflect on the bigness of our God!
So many times in the busyness of life, we get caught up in our own struggles and the mountains that we face on a daily basis. When I think of this promise, I gain a perspective that is greater than my own experience. Though the mountains in my life are big, my God is much bigger! Though there are times when I feel overwhelmed by the orphan world system that I live in, I am encouraged when I think about the greatness of our God!
He is so powerful that He simply took a breath and the stars came into being. If that is the case, then I know that He is strong enough to save you and me (Zephaniah 3:17). No matter how insurmountable your circumstances are today, be encouraged that the God who created the heavens and the earth is your Heavenly Dad.
He is for you, not against you. May God help each one of us to rest in the amazing knowledge of His greatness today and His promise to care for everyone who belongs to Him.
