“Understanding,” said an angry husband, “is one thing my wife knows nothing about.” No doubt, there are many who could make the same statement anytime they feel that they are misunderstood. Not only do we want to be loved, but we all want to be understood as well. And all too often, when we pour out our heart to our dearest friend, it seems that they, too, don’t really care.
How precious, then, are the words of the
Psalmist: “Great is our Lord and mighty in power, His understanding has
no limit.” Our God is a God whose understanding is unlimited!
knows our abilities as well as our possibilities, what we can and
cannot do. When we understand and accept that simple fact, we will
realize that He is the only one who can direct and guide us each day of
our lives. He has given each of us a special skill set and has endowed
us with talents and gifts that are uniquely ours and to be used to His
glory. So, when He offers us an opportunity to serve Him, He will take
the gifts that He has given us and empower us to do what He has called
us to do.
God knows our spiritual limitations. We must never
forget for a moment that He alone can deliver us from the temptations of
life if we want Him to! If we trust Him and turn to Him, we can be
assured that “no temptation will ever overpower us” if, when we are
being tempted, we will look to Him for an escape route. He will protect
us from anything that will destroy us if we want Him to.
He is great, mighty and understanding. Trust Him!
Prayer: Lord, when we come to the end of our limits, may we realize that we are just at the beginning of Yours. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Psalm 147:5 Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit.
