El Shaddai: Lord God Almighty!
How often do you pause and ponder on who God is? I remember the first time I witnessed the seasons going through a full cycle. I watched in awe as the leaves fell off the trees leaving them looking dry and dead then come alive again in Spring. The snow always amazes me-the sheer beauty and softness of it. Even now the season changes always leave me thinking about the greatness of the God who makes all these things happen. Everyday as night turns into day, I marvel at how powerful God is.
Everything we see around us-from humans to the pesky mosquitoes-testifies of the wonder, the glory and the might of our God. Sometimes I smile just thinking about how wonderful our God is.
The best part of it all is that pondering over all He does, can do, is doing, gives me confidence that He can handle anything that concerns me.
Worship is my favorite part of prayertime. Whenever I finish worshiping I walk away feeling light, trusting that if God is all that then I am all set.
The prophet Amos had this to say in Amos 4:13 "He who forms the mountains, who creates the wind, ... who turns dawn to darkness, and treads on the heights of the earth— the Lord God Almighty is His name."
Do not get so wrapped up in the troubles of this life that you fail to take a moment to take in all that happens around you. If you look you will see the hand of God in everything around you. Take a moment today to take it all in and then rest, assured that the Almighty God has your back.
