I know that scripture doesn’t teach that really happened on the 8th day, we don’t really know what happened on the 8th day except that life went on after the creation of the earth, skies, waters, stars, animals, Adam & Eve, etc.
But I can visualize after the fall of man, God shook His head in disappointment and raised His head back up and said with assurance, “I got this!” while repeatedly patting his chest. Disappointment in our Christian lives sometimes leads to something better.. in this case, Adam was the disappointment and many years later, Jesus came to clean it up (so to speak).
But how often, do we say that to ourselves or to our family & friends…when a problem comes up or a situation seems impossible, we look to the skies and say “I know You are with me…”I got this!”
Have you ever had the thought that sometimes things are just unbearable? I have in my physical mind, but in my spiritual sense, never.
God teaches us in Isaiah 40:10 “Do not fear, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand”
God also teaches us in Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the Lord with all of your heart…”
I often seen people hold their heads down because of decisions in their life. Or financial reasons. Or family issues. Or marriage issues.. How often we we raise our heads high to the skies and say what I normally say “I know You are with me, WE got this!”
- If God can create a world so vast in 6 days for us, don’t you think He can take care of your problems too?
- If God can make the Red Sea part and allow His people to cross over into freedom, why should we doubt Him now?
- If God can become the air and come behind the stone that was flying towards Goliath’s forehead, why doubt Him now?
I often wonder what this world would be like, if we raise our heads MORE than we drop our heads in doubt… thats a thought to ponder about.
Until next time…may YOU raise your heads to the heavens NOW…no matter what you are going through at this moment…God has got this!
