May 30, 2016

Though many scheme their way to power in politics, it is actually God who sets up the leaders of nations. History has been called “His story,” and rightly so. God’s decrees determine and structure history, even the rising and falling of governments.

Long before any of us were born, the life-giving God set His creation in motion. These decisions were grounded in his eternal decisions. Theologians call these decisions “decrees,” non-negotiable orders God laid down – which govern creation, redemption, and history.

The complexity of the human body is awe-inspiring. We take for granted that we each have some 34 trillion cells, each one packed with volumes of information. Even to such incredible precision, we can say with certainty that God knows us.

Psalm 139 tells us that God knows everything. Nothing is hid from His gaze, even the children who inhabit their mothers’ wombs. In this Psalm, we rejoice that God cared for us even before we’re born.

As kids, we would play “hide and seek.” God does not need to play such games. By virtue of His perfect knowledge and His all-present nature, He knows our location and even our thoughts. He has an exhaustive knowledge of all things, both actual and potential.

God knows that believers cannot fully comprehend His eternality. The eternal God, according to His grace, watches over us during our brief spans of life. Psalm 90 tells about His provision, helping us hang on until we see Him face to face.

In Psalm 90, Moses wrote, “from everlasting to everlasting you are God.” He compares God’s eternality to our short spans of life, reminding us to “number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”

Psalm 90 is an explosion of praise to the God Who always was and always will be. Moses wrote, “From everlasting to everlasting you are God.” The eternal Lord created everything - time, matter, and space. And He fills and surpasses the created universe.

The Bible tells us about God and His purposes. Everything is not crystal clear. There are mysteries we will not understand in this life. But in our pursuit of knowing God, let us delve into the mystery seeking to comprehend the infinite God according to His self-revelation in the Scriptures.

We are to thoroughly love God, casting off every weight and sin that besets us. Then, we can run life’s race at top speed, knowing that the finish line will bring us face to face with the God we love.
May 17, 2016
Believers are to give God first place in their lives, running life’s race for no other reason than to express their love for Him. We’re commanded to love God supremely. Everything else takes second place.
