Although it's late and I need to be winding down for the night, my heart is wound up with many indefinable hopes and excitements in God and his very strange faithfulness toward me (us). If his constancy toward me was based on who I am and the character found therein, indeed there could be no sensible accounting for it. Tonight I am reminded once again of the good news of the Gospel. (I could never be reminded too much or too often.) God's faithfulness and loyalty to me is based on his ever steady character. A character filled up with mercy and tempered with justice. He looks at me and sees his perfection-- Jesus the Christ.
So in this vein, and very quickly before I turn in for the night I want to remind myself and you of Psalm 46:10. It is a verse plastered all over coffee cups and the backs of youth group t-shirts but for whatever reason feels fresh to my heart and mind tonight.
“Be still, and know that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”
How good is he!
God is good.
He is what's best.
Let's be still and look on him and know him and fill up with joy at what we see.
