God in all things (3)

22 September 2020
‘You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their feet.’

God cares about our lives because He created us. Genesis 1:26 shows God saying, ‘Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us’ (NLT). Not only are we made by God, we’re made to reflect Him, and to become more and more like Him. When we’re thinking about God being in all aspects of our lives, we have to remember that He’s in us. God poured His own mind, power, and love into us. He’s in the very image of our being, so it goes without saying that we have His attention and affection on the deepest level. In Psalm 139, David is worshipping God. In verses 17-18 he says ‘How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them’ (NLT). Those words are true about each one of us, too. God has so many thoughts and plans for us that they simply can’t be counted. He lovingly contemplates every small detail of our lives. If we invite Him in, He is ready to be at work in each of those details. In addition to that, He has placed us in a world that was made to be ours. Psalm 8:6 says, ‘You put us in charge of you handcrafted world, repeated us to your Genesis-charge’ (MSG), referring back to Genesis 1:28, where God instructs humans to ‘fill the earth and subdue it’ (NIV). The earth is made by God, and given to us. Wherever God has placed us, and whatever He plans for us to do, He has given us His authority to allow us to succeed in His work. He made us to be like Him, and has given us the whole world to work with.

What Now?

See if you can get outside today. Spend time praying, surrounded by everything that God has created. Remind yourself that He has given you His authority in this world.
