prayer to the God Who does as He pleases

Whatever the Lord pleases, he does,
in heaven and on earth,
in the seas and all deeps.
Psalm 135:6

You do as You please for You are God. You are sovereign over my life, over all lives, over all the universe. I will worship You for You deserve this creature's praise. You've made me and all that is around me. What I like and what I don't like... all of it is Your doing in some way. Nothing that ever happens to me is beyond Your wise care. The heavens and earth move at Your command and so must I.

Standing on the seashore I realize that no grain of sand moves by the pounding waves of surf without You controlling the process, knowing it all and willing it to be. And nowhere on this earth is far from You. No ocean trench or atmospheric peak will hide me from Your presence or Your heart's concern. You fill my life as You hold the universe. You are as infinite in expanse as You are in microscopic details. You hold all nations, all peoples, all galaxies and all subatomic particles, in Your grasp.

I know You are great and I am small. Yet You love me, care for me, and have saved me through Christ. Do as YOU please, my God, with me. I surrender to You now and desire to always see Your greatness.

  1. Amazing, yet terrifying....why, I'm not sure. It should be easy to trust one who has always loved and cared for me and sent his son to die for me. I am still a sinner, saved by grace, who needs a savior everyday. I need grace to fully trust and find joy in Christ my savior. Thank you for the reminder.
