Too many numbers have been swirling in my mind lately.
Numbers regarding birthdays, hours in a day, and bills to pay. Numbers that make my brain hurt and my heart fret. Numbers that remind me how small I am and fill me with doubt.
So I stop and breathe deep step away from the numbers for awhile, as I realign my heart with God's. He sees the numbers too. But He is not hindered by them. For the LORD knows I am small. He uses me anyway so that He can be that much BIGGER! The simple truth is, life comes down to where I place my trust. And as a woman of faith I am taught my strength does not come in numbers, but in the power of the LORD.
Today, and everyday, I must understand that “Some trust in chariots and some in horses but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.” (Psalm 20:7) (NIV)
And when I take my eyes off the numbers and place them back on my Holy God, sitting on his throne, opening His heart and hands to me, I offer my praise for He is the One.
The One who knows my name.
The One who sees my troubles.
The One who sets my course.
The One who picked me up, dusted me off, and declared me His child by the blood of Christ.
He is the One...
And that is the only number that truly matters.
All the gold and all the riches belong to you. Help us to trust in Your provision. Show us the path you would have us take that leads to Your glory. We praise you for you are the One who brings all things together for Your good and perfect will.
