Protection For The Game
So ok, sometimes life just throws it’s left hook right in your face and lands you into a tough game that you don’t know how to play. As a matter of fact you have no clue, no idea just what went down and why. There’s a whole lot of What for’s and what if’s, and how-comes and when there are no answers there is no peace!
So beautiful you, why must we have answers before we have peace? Well, truth is we don’t! You see, Answers may never come around and you, beautiful one, need to rest and receive God’s sweet grace for the difficulties. So, yeah, just rest that weary mind and come before the Creator of the universe, your Maker, your Sustainer, Your Provider, and Your Savior and let Him surround you with a divine quiet that you can feel in the depths of your soul. Ahh, yes, there are no fears in His presence, no shadows in His Light, No worries in His brilliant accomplishments, and no discouragement in His divine care!
Why then, don’t we come more often into His presence to seek His face and know His sweet peace? His sweet comfort? Maybe it’s because we’re so caught up in game that we don’t know how to play, that we forget about the One sovereign God, who does. The One who knows the end from the beginning and can play the game with His eyes closed and beat all odds. Why then do we fail to ask His guidance, His help and fail to trust His divine work?
David appealed to God’s justice and affirmed His Kingship in Psalm 7: and in verse 1, I love his prayer of affirmation to his God, “I come to You for protection, O LORD my God……rescue me.”
Let’s do it. Let’s do what David did and come before our Lord for safe keeping when the game is hard. Verse 10, 11, “God is my shield, saving those whose hearts are true and right…God is an honest judge. On into Psalm 8, “Oh LORD, our Lord, Your majestic name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens…. When I look into the night sky and see the work of Your fingers–the moon and the stars you set in place–what are mere mortals that You should think about them, human beings that You should care for them?…Oh LORD our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
So, that chaotic game of confusion that you don’t know how to play; He does and he’s making the next brilliant move if you’ll only allow Him the opportunity. Find that quiet place in your heart today! Sit before Him and let Him protect you and let Him do His work in your heart and in your game.
