Daily Bears Us Up

 

Something to think about.

Daily Bears Us Up

19 Blessed be the Lord,who daily bears us up;God is our salvation. Psalms 68:19

Daily, it says daily, the Lord will bear us up. We often wonder where are you, God? Is the reason we can’t find Him because we ignore Him? Is it because we don’t acknowledge His presence on a daily basis and as a result can’t recognize Him? Have we turned God into something lost in the white noise? Have we alienated him so much that he has become a lost detail in a forest of details? Has His voice become so small you need an amplifier to hear it?

God is there for you every day, just as it says. It is we who have moved away or allowed the cares of the world to overrun the voice and presence of God?

Christians, we’ve lost the knowledge and experience of the presence of God. We have allowed ourselves to create a divide between our living God and us. We know of God we know about God we spend loads of money doing what we believe God wants. But do we experience living God? If God is alive, He must have expression. He must have a concrete expression on life. Every living thing regardless of size or purpose leaves evidence of its existence.

The proof of God is us. It is everything around us. We have attributed everything God has done to happenstance. We have tried to separate the evidence of the divine from the divine. We have taken his evidence and reassigned it to the absurd. However, we reinterpret his evidence we can’t remove him from it. Because without him the evidence cannot exist. We are inextricably bound by his evidence. We cannot logically much less spiritually remove him from his expression.

God is alive because everything living is sustained by Him. Not figuratively but actually. If we could remove God from our lives, all life would cease. Because God is the source of life. Without Him, life would not exist. We are alive because He exists. If He had not created us, he would still exist. Without his daily substance like manna from heaven, we would not survive. He literally bears us up every day.

About Ruben

I am the owner of a custom furniture shop in Orlando, Florida. I had a heart attack back in 2010. As a result of complications from the heart attack I almost died . The road to recovery took about eighteen months and even now I still have issues to deal with. As a result of almost dying many things have changed. Most notably my concept of time. By that I mean that I am acutely aware of my mortality, not morbidly but realistically. Before the heart attack I thought I would make it to 70's, 80'S or as my mother into 90's but now I realize everyday is a gift. I don't take it for granted. That is why I write I have something to say and I want to say it, before I can't say it anymore.
