I’d like to continue with my last post about Sunday’s message.


There is a second reflection we need to make:


The book of Psalms reminds us God never sleeps. He never slumbers. He never grows weary. He doesn’t fall asleep on the job. He is always at work. Always alert. Always awake. He works the minutest details, but, of course, doesn’t always share them with us. (Bummer!) 🙂  I love what David does in this section of Psalm 16:

Verse 5a: God is our Completeness. “My chosen portion and my cup.” This simply says God is the One who makes us complete.

Verse 5b: God is our Certainty. “You hold my lot.” God takes care of my circumstances. David lived life as a nomad for many years…losing everything. Yet he was able to praise God in the storm.

Verse 6: God is our Contentment. We have much to be thankful for but sadly, we are one of the most ungrateful generations on the planet. We want for nothing and everything.

Verse 8: God is our Confidence. With God in our sights and on our radar, our perspective changes.

In spite of the there being those who would like to say God is not involved in our lives, I prefer to think He is highly involved in my comings and goings. So…when things get a little dicey for you…keep in mind what God is doing in the here and now.

  1. Yes, our God is involved in our lives. We do need to practice the knowledge of His presence in all we do.
    Blessings, Bill!

    I hope you don’t count me in that group that say God is not involved in your life. He’s not involved in my life but I have no opinion on what he is doing in your life. I really don’t understand why anyone needs an imaginary, supernatural, supervisor, father figure to help them get along. I get along fine without that sort of thing. I’m still trying to figure it out. Obviously the Jews, Muslims, and Christians imagine different father types but they all seem to have the same issues.

      I find it interesting in your first sentence that you say you do not want to be counted in those that say God is not involved in our life… Yet follow that with your second sentence indicating that God is imaginary. This indicates none existence which would imply that in fact you are saying God is not involved in our lives.

      Not trying to split hairs, but it seems that is exactly what you are saying.

      I do find it interesting that you continue to engage in a forum that is primarily spiritual in nature. I am curious of what continues to draw you into the conversations? Please do not misunderstand, I personally enjoy your comments, though I do think there is something more that continues to bring you…

    Amen, Bill. The earth declares His majesty and each breath given is a gift from Him. To acknowledge this is a place of humility. To deny a place of pride. Only one of them can find the Creator and peace. Good reminder. Thanks.

    Even though there may be times where God seems absent, He’s really not. All we need to do (and) remember is the God of the Bible and how He was a very present God.
