If the Lord had not been on our side— let Israel say— if the Lord had not been on our side when people attacked us, they would have swallowed us alive when their anger flared against us;…Our help is in the name of the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 124:1-3,8 NIV
When you call Me the Maker of heaven and earth, it is more than a declaration of My abilities. Now, it is true that all you see and can not see was created by Me with the words spoken “Let there be…”
My creativity and design were and are on full display as you walk upon the earth, smell the aromas, touch the soft skin of a newborn, look upon the sunrise over the ocean and watch the shadows fall at sunset over the mountains. It was not by chance that I created mankind, but rather by design for the joy of life.
Dependency upon Me was intertwined with you in the first breath I gave to Adam. I’ve never left the interconnectedness of helping those who seek Me. I even sustain those who rebel or deny My existence. My love for creation outweighs my anger to be offended easily and change My ways. I always move toward those who are broken, mistreated, and contrite of heart who look to Me for help.
My Son reached for Peter’s hand when he cried out to Him, “Lord, save me!” I watched over the ark carrying of the last of the living during the great flood. I supplied My nation, Israel, with food and water every day during their wandering for 40 years in the wilderness – a whole nation. I rescued David from the lion, the bear and Goliath, as he appealed for My help. I am here for you.
I am the Maker. Through My Son, I make all things new by redeeming your past. There is no scenario in which you are beyond My ability to bring light out of your darkness. My arm is not so short that it cannot save. My voice is not so silent that it cannot calm the tempest of waters surrounding you.
To recognize your need for Me, to embrace the emptiness of your arrogance, to acknowledge the path of destructive pride, to eat the fruit of rejection, to experience the loneliness of isolation, to feel the suffocation of depression – AND then form My name with a whisper on your lips. Know beyond all doubt – I am here. Your Maker and Helper.
As your good Father, My eyes are always watching you and My heart acknowledges the interconnectedness of love yearning in your direction.
Whispers from Your Father, God
