#MyVisionFast: THIS Was Not My Idea!

Greetings!

BlogFam, 

The creation of this entire universe was NOT my idea.

The creation of this entire universe was NOT your idea either.

So, when God asks Job,"Where were you when I created the earth?" [Job 38:4]  What response could Job have given except for NO WHERE!  At the point the earth was created, he was but a mere thought on the mind of our Creator.

This is a very sobering and humbling reality to keep in mind.

Could you imagine the shift in any kind of argument or debate or heated discussion if YOU or the person with whom you feel the need to have such an intense dialogue would just keep in mind that NONE of THIS was any of our idea.  NONE of it!  NONE of us had any of us in mind at the point of creation because NONE of us were here.  You were not here.  I was not here.  NOBODY was present at the first rising or the first setting of the sun BUT GOD.  And to keep that in mind when we have conversations about things that will likely NOT matter at the end of all time is helpful to keep us all in check.

Friends, I continue to remain in awe of GOD!  I am amazed at God's infinite creativity and meticulous attention to every detail concerning ALL of creation, ALL over the world, and beyond.  I just think that sometimes we need to press pause on trying to prove our point, take a step back from verbally attacking our brothers and sisters, or just sit down and shut up about things that will remain a mystery until Jesus comes back.  I am not at all saying that you should not have an opinion.  I am not saying that you should never express your opinion.  I am only reminding you that your opinion in the grander scheme of the entire universe matters as much as a grain of sand on the beach.

WOW!

That last statement just got me.  But it is so true.  I think if we would keep in mind that one question that God asks Job in Job 38, "Where were you when I created the earth?"  We might could actually love each other more deeply, hear each other more intentionally, and see each other more clearly.  I mean, after all, isn't that what God was really doing with Job?  The questions went on for a few chapters and in the end Job was speechless and humbled and probably somewhat embarrassed.  But in the end, he had to know that God was right.  NONE of this was Job's idea... not his life, his loss, or his lament.  AND Job, like all of us at some point, had to come to grips with the reality that everything concerning us, our neighbors, this world, and beyond was birth out of the imagination of the ONLY one who knows ALL things and who does ALL things well.

So, my friends, I pray that today you would pray...


GOD LOVES YOU and I DO TOO!!!
Blessings, Glory, and Sunshine!
Delesslyn
