The One who is in us created the universe. He created our bodies. He knows more about us and satan than anyone on earth. He's the great Physician. The first time this really sunk in was in college. I was studying for an exam, and not getting very far. I prayed, "Father You know more about this than anyone on earth. You created the earth. Please help me understand." And I did, got an A : ) My professor was so pleased he said, "I don't know what you've been doing but keep it up."
So I told him, "Actually, I've been praying." His jaw dropped.
When I was writing computer code and got stuck, I'd pray that He would help me. He created everything that makes up a computer. He knows more about them than man does. And He always helped me. When life seems overwhelming, God is greater. We don't need to be afraid. I've seen all sorts of terrible things, but my biggest fear is spiders! Maybe it's time to take the leap of faith and believe He's bigger than spiders too.
I took this photo day before yesterday. Still determined to do my daily 20 minute walk, I headed for a trail. I realized I enjoy walking most with a camera, so I prayed, "Father show me where the good shots are." Soon I looked up and saw the moon in daylight. Had to get the shot. Something about seeing the moon makes me feel stability. God has everything under control. Even the universe. The moon's still up there, even when we can't see it. God is too, only He's in our hearts when we let Him in. He isn't pushy, He only comes if we ask Him to.
