January 16, 2018 – Psalm 18:31-32

For who is God except the Lord? Who but our God is a solid rock? God arms me with strength, and He makes my way perfect. Psalm 18:31-32.

Have you ever tried to move a mountain of stone? No matter how strong we think we are, we can not move any mountain.  Who created the mountain?  Who created us? Who created the Milky Way Galaxy we live in? Who created the whole earth of oceans and land complete with the sun and moon and stars?

One day a sixth grade student asked me a question he wondered about.  When was God born?  God gave me the answer in four words from Genesis 1:1.  In the beginning God… God always was and always will be.

Remember the childhood game, ‘King of the Mountain’?  We wanted to climb to the highest point, be first in everything, and be a winner as a child. We feel we can conquer the world as children.

Job needed to be reminded of the power and might of God. One of the questions God asked Job in Chapter 38:31-32 is, “Can you direct the movement of the stars—binding the cluster of the Pleiades or loosening the cords of Orion? Can you direct the constellations through the seasons or guide the Bear with her cubs across the heavens?” 

When the walkways and roads are icy, we need help to walk without falling.  So it is in our walk in this world of sin and darkness, we need help and guidance as we try to climb mountains, or walk on a level path. God helps us to become ‘surefooted as a deer’ and stand on the highest mountain with Jesus.  God not only created us and our world, but sent us the Way of Jesus to follow, to be with Him for an eternity. Let everything that breathes sing praises to the Lord! Praise the Lord!  Psalm 150:6

He makes me as surefooted as a deer, enabling me to stand on mountain heights. Psalm 18:33.
