Lost in a Store

Look up and see:
who created these?
He brings out the starry host by number;
He calls all of them by name.
Because of His great power and strength,
not one of them is missing. Isaiah 40:26(HCSB)

When I was young I think the scariest time was when I was separated from my parents in a store. I looked for them down some aisles, but they were nowhere to be seen. Eventually, a kind store worker saw my dilemma and took me up to the front where my parents were paged. 

Now I don’t get so frantic when life gets scary, because I know that the same God who knows all the stars by name is the same God who has the power to change my circumstances. If He has not changed anything, then I must continue to look up and believe there’s a reason behind the delay. Maybe there’s a lesson to be learned, a trait to modify, or mindset that needs to change. Do you believe that God’s power will work for you? If there’s a delay in His power, are you willing to believe there’s a reason? 

Prayer: Father, I confess that I tend to look at my problems too much and I don’t look up enough. Please, may the same power that created the stars work things out in my current situation for my good and your glory. Amen
