It is in understanding God’s sovereignty that we can truly humble ourselves before Him, and worship Him as the King of King and Lord of Lords. “Who is there who speaks and it comes to pass, unless the Lord has commanded it?” (Lam 3:37) The same who knows what’s best for us, even if it doesn’t look like it to us as we go through it. “The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime; and His song will be with me in the night, A prayer to the God of my life (El Hayyay).” (Ps 42:8)
El Hayyay – the God of my life – be very close to me. Open my ears to hear You. Soften my heart to discern Your Spirit. Help my eyes to recognize when You are weaving something in my life. Turn my frustration and anger away from people who seem to me to be obstacles in my life, El Hayyay, and help me to know that You are sovereign – that nothing happens to me that doesn’t first pass through Your hands. Kings see You and bow down. I pray that I will live each moment in that same spirit of honor and humility before the God who knows what steps I should take, and who guides me. In the precious name of Jesus, amen.
