He does not see how wonderful we are
He does not know how intelligent we are.
He does not listen to our opinions.
He does not consider our good deeds.
He does not understand our boasting.
He is not impressed with our accomplishments.
He is doing His own work.
He is upholding all things by the word of His power.
He is managing the universe.
He is ruling and defending His kingdom.
He is holding back His enemies.
He is preventing wars and destruction.
He is keeping a light on in the world.
He is providing for our needs.
He is working in the hearts of the humble.
He is preparing a people to share His eternal glory.
As high as we can jump is the power we have to get God’s attention.
We would do better to fall flat on our faces, confess our weaknesses, inabilities and failures; and repent of our sin of pride. Then He would see us, raise us up, and bring us to Himself; provide for us, lead us, assure us, and nurture us as His own children.
“For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,
And do not return there,
But water the earth,
And make it bring forth and bud,
That it may give seed to the sower
And bread to the eater,
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:10-11
Abba, Father, we need you. Rend the heavens and come down, as the melting fire burneth, and make your name known to the adversaries. Shine into our hearts the knowledge of your glory in the face of Jesus Christ. In His name I pray. Amen.
