Sometimes it all blurs into one gigantic mess. The day starts out well. Things go smoothly. Everything seems in order and on the right track. Then, suddenly, it veers into complete chaos. Out of control. A mess beyond fixing. Some days are like that.
Let them know that you, whose name is the Lord – that you alone are the Most High over all the earth. Psalm 83:18 (NIV)
Then they’ll learn your name: “God,” the one and only High God on earth. Psalm 83:18 (MSG)
In the middle of my messes, I need reminders of God’s presence. It is so easy to get bogged down in the constancy. The endless list of things that all need to be done. Multiple voices all needing my attention at the same time, each louder than the other. I lose my perspective in those moments. I lose my patience. I lose my sense of peace.
There is a place to come back to. There is peace to be had. There is perspective to be gained. It can be found in the reminder that my God is the Most High. There is no one above Him. He is in charge. He has placed all things under His feet. No one can compete with His power and majesty. He is above all and in all things.
It’s as simple as calling on His name. His name is higher than any other. There is no name like Jesus. Instead of relying on my own ability to right the ship, He is the one who is able to supply peace. I just need to call on Him. Peace for my soul will result in peaceful interactions with others. There is much that can be done when I rely on the strength and power of the Most High.
I need reminders. It is easy to forget. But my God is the One who is holding each part of my life in His hands. He is the Most High. He is the only one who goes by that name. He can be trusted. He will not let me go.
