January 27: Bigger than me

Posted: January 27, 2010 in Uncategorized

“Because of the oppression of the afflicted and the groaning of the poor, I will now rise up,” says the Lord. “I will put in a safe place the one who longs for it.” Psalm 12:5 (HCSB)

In days like these, with a skyrocketing orphan population and natural disasters creating more misery then anyone knows what to do with, I’m so thankful for Psalm 12:5.  It’s just one small verse, but it gives huge assurances.  Most of all, it assures me that – though staying alert and involved is really important – the results aren’t up to me.  He is the One who rises up.  He is the One who knows the safe places and who needs them the most.

Behold:  He is.  And I am not.

It’s a huge relief to my heart today, and motivation to do whatever I can to serve His plan here on my planet.
