This morning I awoke early and thanked the Lord for all that He will accomplish today. He is our Sovereign Lord, and He accomplishes all that He wants. It put everything in perspective as I read again in His Word:
“Seek the Lord while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; And let him return to the Lord, and He will have compassion on him, and to our God, For He will abundantly pardon. ‘For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,’ declares the Lord. ‘For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return there without watering the earth and making it bear and sprout, and furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater; So will My Word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. For you will go out with joy and be led forth with peace; The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.'” (Is 55:6-12)
It was a reminder that our Lord will continue to remind us that if we seek Him and repent from our unrighteous ways, He will always have compassion with us. I was also reminded that we must keep in mind that He is the Sovereign Lord, and we must always humble ourselves before Him and submit to His will because His is God and we are not. We don’t think the way He does, but unlike us His Word will always accomplish what He means to do. His Word never returns void. And because of that, and that I am His child, I can go out with joy and be led by His peace. Halleluiah!
