“…and clouds are the dust from his feet.” (Nahum 1:3)
Good morning, Papa Father, thank you for your divine law in the midst of chaos. Our inner person delights in the way you do things even when we can’t make sense of them—these mysteries of life. (Romans 7:22)
When life is foggy, answers are cloudy, and pathways are overgrown our faith says, “We look at the unseen…” (2 Corinthians 4:18) Like pilots who fly by instruments, we walk by faith in your Holy Word through your Holy Spirit. (2 Corinthians 5:7)
We praise you and proclaim: We live and move and walk and wait down here within your Shekinah Glory clouds. (Matthew 17:5; Luke 9:35) We are learning to trust and obey and “fly”-by-faith.
Like Paul, we are “managers of mysteries.” (1 Corinthians 4:1) We live in the fog of life and are increasingly secure in your love. “Your love casts out our fear!” (1 John 4:18)
Here are some mysteries that are all bigger than us:
The mystery of Money
The mystery of Possessions
The mystery of Work
The mystery of Time
The mystery of Family
The mystery of God
The mystery of Self
And, LORD, we bring all of these mysteries, and many others, to you and thank you for them. Often, we see no order to them. Often, they seem to fight and compete with each other. Still, we know you are in the middle of them guiding us by faith. Thank you, LORD.
With Paul we declare to ourselves and others:
“Great is the mystery of godliness…” (1 Timothy 3:16)
And, “Behold I show you a mystery.” (1 Corinthians 15:51)
And, “I am a manager of mysteries…” (1 Corinthians 4:1)
And, we fly with and comfort others who feel lost in the fog.
Thank you, LORD, for this privilege.
Giv’m Heaven, John Parker
