You made a reservoir between the two walls for the water of the old pool— but you did not trust in the one who made it; you did not depend on the one who formed it long ago!
Isaiah 22:11 NET
When we don’t have the Lord as our primary focus, we get off track and start to trust in other things that we think are important.
We look towards things that we have created or things that we can manipulate to help us, forgetting that God can do more in one second than we can try to do in a lifetime of striving.
There have been plenty of times in the past when God has taken a seemingly hopeless situation and has turned it around!
When you experience these times, you should glorify God! Because He has allowed you to see His mercy and grace at work in this world around you.
But even when you don’t see anything spectacular. Even if what you’re looking at seems mundane and simple, like a pool of water, you should keep God’s hand in it in proper perspective.
He is at work in the world, in the big things and in the small things. Keep your eyes on Him and you will see Him and His work all around you!
Trust Him today!
Father, thank You for Your activity in my life and around me. Help me to see You at work, so I can give glory for what you are doing, the small and the great.
