Who Has the Power

The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;
My God, my strength, in whom I will trust;
My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

I will call upon the LORD,
who is worthy to be praised;
So shall I be saved from my enemies.

Psalm 18:2-3

LORD Jesus we praise You for You are worthy to be praised. Forgive us, O God we pray, whenever we doubt that You are above everything. Open our eyes so that we may see Your wondrous works. Help us to declare Your mighty acts and to give all glory to You. In Jesus’ mighty name we pray. Amen.

As Christians we should know that we need to humble ourselves, pray, seek God’s face, and adjust our lifestyle whenever it is not in line with God’s Word (2. Chronicles 7:14) In Wednesday’s post, when I quoted from 2. Chronicles 7:13-14, I mentioned something else, though:

“that the One who is able to calm the storm is also the One who is able to send, allow, or avoid the storm. (2 Chronicles 7:13)”

If we are honest now, how often do we really ask ourselves if God has sent or allowed a hardship that we are facing that moment? Is there a reason why this is happening? Could God have stopped this kind of thing?

What if we do know that whatever we are facing right now is the work of God? Will we accept His will and trust Him? Will we continue to call upon Him? Will we still praise Him?

Will we join David and say, no matter what:

The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;
My God, my strength, in whom I will trust;
My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

I will call upon the LORD,
who is worthy to be praised;
So shall I be saved from my enemies.

Psalm 18:2-3

Or will we wrestle with God who has the power to make the sun rise in the morning and the sun to set in the evening? Do you agree that the One who knows how and why the storm came to be is also the One who knows how to cease the storm again?

Call upon the LORD and praise Him today.
