I could write today. I could write about praising You and how good You are. I could write about your faithfulness and how You have all things in your hands. I could write about Your wisdom and the wonders of Your creation. That You did it all, and You did it well.
This is all true. And I’ve come to You with great praise many times. I’ve written it down for posterity. When my children and descendants read my writings, they’ll know where I stood during my lifetime. You hold it all. You are a great God. The only true God.
That’s where I stand. But what about when I fall? Or when my strength is sapped and I just need to sit down for awhile?
I know my strength is in You, but I can’t conjure it up. So what if I sit awhile and ask You to be my strength?
What if I am silent and trust You’ll see me through? What if today, I rest in a big way and ask You to fight for me?
Can I do that? Will the heavenlies see the battle raging and think I’m defeated? Will it look like I’ve turned away from You? Cause I haven’t, I don’t think. I’m just weak today. I need You to show Your muscle on my behalf today. I need You to step in and do the living for me today. I’ll go through the motions as best as I can, but You be the life. Is that okay, Jesus? I’m at Your mercy today.
I’m hiding in You. I’m waiting on You. That’s my proclamation today.
You are faithful and I’m calling You out on it. That’s my praise today. That’s my praise always. When I fall. When I stand. You are my hiding place. You are my strength. You are my life.
