You know how some days things just seem to go perfectly. The sun and birds are making music. There is a cool breeze in the afternoon – in May – in Phoenix! You are filled with energy and when asked a question you pop off exactly the right answer with wisdom and deep thought. Well…last weekend was like that for me. Saturday, Sunday and even into Monday. I could do no wrong. In prayer I spoke intelligently and with emotion. In emails I was rockin’ it. I even finished three talks for a retreat I’m speaking at in record time…and they are good, too!
Then I read Job 38 & 39 as part of my yearly Bible reading plan. Turns out I didn’t hang the stars and I don’t know where the lightning is stored. I cannot make water turn to ice without a lot of help from the freezer. I cannot cause grass to cover the barren fields. Nor can I tame the lion and make him eat his veggies. Basically I’m helpless without the infilling of God’s grace.
So today, Lord, as I tackle whatever lies ahead of me, please keep my cocky spirit humble before You. It’s all about you, Lord…it’s totally All About You!
