There’s No One Like Our God

“May the LORD give strength to his people! May the LORD bless his people with peace!” Psalm 29:11 (ESV)

There was simply no one else who could do the job. So once again, we stepped up to the plate and attempted to make it all happen. Exhausted, overwhelmed and burned out, we landed empty. Discouragement rose to the surface. Unmet expectations resurfaced. Disillusionment drowned out any seed of success. Hope ran thin and giving up loomed large. All because our doing and over doing fizzled out leaving us frazzled, defeated and wondering whether we would have the energy to embrace tomorrow.

Sound familiar? How many times do we land here thinking its all up to us? Resisting the urge to ask for help carves in lots of room for the enemy to leave us vulnerable and weak. Deciding we have to take on one more thing can easily offer us a host of not so pretty emotions. Stress days invite short words, frustration, anger, impatience – I think you get the picture. Lesson learned – we are not the only one who can get the job done.

There’s simply no one like our God. When He moves into action there’s no fizzling or frazzled, defeated wondering. He never grows weary, tired or runs out of energy. Strength is His trademark. Power is His brand. Grace is His logo. Wisdom defines Him and then there’s love – His love is unimaginable. God has unlimited resources and we don’t have to worry about Him having enough within Him to start over tomorrow.

A woman who leans into the wisdom and discernment of her God finds peace and strength even in the midst of crazy busy. She knows how to achieve balance and listens closely to avoid missing God’s plan for her life. She embraces his equipping and accepts just the right tasks. She recognizes there is plenty of room for everyone to have their chance at stepping up to the plate and it all doesn’t rest on her shoulders. Greatest benefit – we all grow, we all learn, we all use our gifts. End result no one gets exhausted, overwhelmed or discouraged. And the beauty of it all – we reflect God’s character when we trust Him to get it all done and on time.

“Father, help us to resist the perceived urgent and listen for Your voice guiding us in the best direction. Show us how to use our time and when to invite rest. Teach us to trust You with our all that needs to be done.”

For His Glory
