Lord Moynihan was recognized as one of the world’s greatest surgeons. Physicians came from distant places to observe his techniques and procedures.
One day after he finished operating before a gallery of other surgeons a reporter asked, “How can you work so calmly with such a famous crowd present?”
After pausing for a moment, he calmly replied, “There are just three people in the operating room when I operate – the patient, myself and God.”
In Joshua we read, “I will not fail you or abandon you.” In Hebrews we read, “I will never fail you, I will never forsake you!”
One thing is certain: Wherever Christians find themselves they can know with certainty that God is with them, will never fail, abandon nor forsake them!
How marvelous is that.
When we learn to accept the reality of God’s presence in our lives and come to depend on His strength and power rather than our own, we will begin to recognize the sufficiency of His grace and mercy. Once we make the transition from depending on ourselves to complete dependency upon God, our fears will be relieved, our anxieties overcome and our lives endowed with a “peace that passes all understanding.”
God wants to do more than care for us, He wants to take care of us. And He will if we trust Him!
Prayer: We are grateful Lord, for Your promises and presence, Your power and protection and Your desire to give us whatever wisdom we need if we use it to honor You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Hebrews 13:5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
