I’ve been living out of a suitcase for ages.
Traveling you ask?
Oh no, I got back last month.
Do I believe in a God so weak that I, the creature, have greater foresight than the Creator? Do I think so little of my Maker that I presume to posess not only the necessity but also the means to manipulate circumstances and relationships for my own greatest good?
12 It is He who made the earth by his power, who established the world by His wisdom, and by His understanding stretched out the heavens.
13 When He utters his voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, and He makes the mist rise from the ends of the earth. He makes lightning for the rain, and He brings forth the wind from His storehouses.
14 Every man is stupid and without knowledge; every goldsmith is put to shame by his idols, for his images are false, and there is no breath in them.
15 They are worthless, a work of delusion; at the time of their punishment they shall perish.
16 Not like these is he who is the portion of Jacob, for He is the one who formed all things, and Israel is the tribe of his inheritance; the Lord of hosts is His name.
“It is about the greatness of God, not the significance of man. God made man small and the universe big to say something about himself.”
— John Piper
There is a danger in using Romans 8:28 as an empty cliche and thus robbing it of its value, but in context, this verse has a power that is stunning.
Ultimately it should be life changing.
26 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
27 And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
At tmes I wonder,
where all the wonder went.
Yet in the wonder less and lack,
the more we see a need
For His wonderful to fill
