Job 12:13

wisdomhelpBless the Lord

With God are wisdom and might; God’s are counsel and understanding.

We grapple with global and local events. Circumstances and people ruffle our calm or bring us peace. Nature frightens or entrances us. We live in a world of dichotomy. We find light not when we grasp at it . . . but when we hold our hearts and heads and hands open . . . ready to receive God’s wisdom, understanding, counsel and might.

God says: Do not worry about all that you cannot control. The experiences you want to govern are far greater than you imagine, far deeper than you dream. The repercussions of your words and deeds last an eternity as does my healing love for you. Put aside all that you cannot understand and rest in me. Manage the work you have before you and rely on me. Tend to the people given into your charge and ask me for guidance. You will always have my counsel. My wisdom is at your fingertips. With patience and with listening you will find me. When you act in me you are mighty. When you act for me you are understanding. When you act with me you are love.  

When we cease thinking that the world is a place of either or we come to a place that allows for both darkness and light, both ignorance and understanding, both violence and wisdom. When we give all that we have and all that we are into God’s capable hands, we learn how to sing the verses of Psalm 104 with a full and peace-filled heart.

As we break from Jeremiah’s prophecy, spend some time today with Psalm 104 and choose one or two verses that you might repeat when you encounter obstacles.

I will sing to the Lord all my life . . . I find my joy in the Lord . . . Bless the Lord, my soul.
