I cannot count the stars, they are far too numerous – but I know the One who calls them each by name.
“He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.” (Psalm 147:4)
I can’t escape life’s storms – but I know the One who calms their chaos.
“He (Jesus) got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, ‘Quiet! Be still!’ Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.” (Mark 4:39)
I often (being directionally challenged) don’t know the way – but I know the One who IS The Way.
“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’ ” (John 14:6)
I often don’t know which path to take – but I have His promise that if I will,
“Trust in the Lord with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding; in all my ways acknowledge Him,” that “He will direct my paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
I don’t know what tomorrow holds in store for me – but I know the One who holds tomorrow and is not surprised by what it will bring.
“I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come.” (Isaiah 46:10)
I don’t have sufficient wisdom and knowledge to meet the challenges I face every day – but I know the One who has all wisdom and knowledge.
“so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” (Colossians 2:2-3)
Sometimes, like Job, I don’t know where God is – but I know that God always knows where I am. I am never lost to Him.
“But if I go to the east, He is not there; if I go to the west, I do not find Him. When He is at work in the north, I do not see Him; when He turns to the south, I catch no glimpse of Him. But He knows the way that I take; when He has tested me, I will come forth as gold.” (Job 23:8-10)
Basically, there is not much I know for certain. But there is this one thing –
” . . . I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him for that day.” (2 Timothy 1:12)
and knowing this one thing is everything –
sincerely, Grace Day
