Don’t worry — He gets it …

Psalm 46: 1-3

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.  Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. NIV


Just yesterday, I was thinking, “What are we going to do?  If all of this oil causes irreparable damage to the Gulf, what will be the effect?  And, what about all of these tornadoes in Oklahoma and Texas?  And, what about that pesky volcano in Iceland that keeps interrupting air travel, and upsetting my family?”  I’ve been talking to God about that a little bit, and then, this morning, this is the next verse on the “fear not” list in my concordance.

God gets it.  He knows what is worrying me, even before I take it to Him.

And, I love that the Bible is an endless source of wisdom on whatever issue it is that I am dealing with.  It is proof that our Lord truly is the Alpha and the Omega … He has seen it all, He knows it all, He is big enough to handle it all, and He isn’t worried about it.

God is MY refuge and MY strength.

I will think about that today.
