Verse of the day:
Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle.
The Psalmist in his day was also a warrior and hence required expertise in such matters. Yet, we can see from the verse above that he credited his ability to the instruction of the Lord and acknowledged God as his all-sufficient help. By praising the Lord as His rock, and his teacher, the psalmist, declared that his own strength and know-how was no match for God’s power and wisdom at work in him.
The Father would not have us idle but has commissioned us to do good works and to bring about a positive effect on the world we live in. As the light of the world and the salt of the earth, we bring illumination and healing through our being and doing. However, He also does not desire that we strive to do things on earth as with our own power or through our methods alone.
His love brings us to a place of rest in Him where His desires become our desires, and our actions are altogether an outworking of His presence within us. Beloved, our true worship to God is acknowledging Him in all that we do and allowing Him to be the source of our strength and wisdom. In doing this, we are equipped through His ability at work in us to do good works on earth.
Father, I confess that You are my rock, my strength, and my teacher. I acknowledge today, that You are at work in me to will and to do for Your good pleasure. I receive strength and wisdom from you, help me to remember to trust You in all that I do. Amen.
