Psalm 54: The Great Upholder

Posted by on Jan 30, 2017 in Blog | 0 comments

How many of us were trained (if we were trained at all) to be as or more consciously dependent upon God as we are practically self-sufficient. Aren’t most of us conditioned to do everything in our own power to make life work, then as a last resort, call on God our “helper” (an exalted title by the way).

What a gross distortion of what is true about us and true about God.

It takes so little to knock us down … sickness, unemployment, injustice, accidents, conflict. We are deficient, finite, always in need of help whether we realize it or not, whether we admit it or not.

God, on the other hand, is infinitely self-sufficient. He lacks absolutely nothing. He never needs help. Seriously … never.

Why do we ever withhold any part of our fragile lives from the only One who can and does hold us up? Every breath we take, every beat of our heart is proof positive that God is faithfully sustaining our very lives and more than able to do beyond all that we ask or think. (Ephesians 3:20-21)
