June 22, 2011, "Overwhelming humbleness"

Triumphant Victorious Reminders
Inspired by the Holy Spirit
Written by: Teresa Criswell

Psalm 8

I am reminded with great joy the God we get to worship.
Our Awesome God of His covenant over the many human beings throughout our concept of time and history. It's quite overwhelming, isn't it?

I love it, The Most Famous One allows us to pray to Him without ceasing as He desires to commune with us without ceasing.

The amazing, awesome God, Creator of the heavens and the earth, the moon and the stars that are strategically placed with overwhelming creativity and order, desires our spirits to commune with His Holy Spirit.

As recorded in First Kings 8, King Solomon asks with rhetorical awe, "But will God really live on earth? Why, even the highest heavens cannot contain You. How much less this temple I have built (I Kings 8:27)!" The Wisdom upon King Solomon as He completed the building of the Temple, led him to this wisdom that humbly overwhelmed him as he was constantly aware of his own great nothingness in the midst of God's eternal 'everythingness'.

Let us be overwhelmed today by His glorious awe.
We must let this realization overtake our minds.
When we are finally caught aware of our Glorious God and King, by default, we are unable to walk in pride, as we are humbled by His majesty.

Watching and observing the many people driving, walking, sitting and standing, may we be in awe of the spirit that each person 'houses'. Let us become aware moment by moment of our Awesome God, Who knew their spirit intimately before they were formed in their mother's womb. Let us help them find the Creator of their spirit, no matter if they smile, are kind, if they frown or are just plain mean, we must display with great love that comes from Who He is as their spirit overwhelms their mind and says, "This is what I have been searching for all of my life...YOU, GOD, YOU!"

Today, I am reminded to be a vessel of honor, set apart and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work. I must be a rescuing reminder to those I meet to reveal The One Who saved us with extravagant humility...Jesus Christ!

Go in His wisdom and understanding as we do what the Lord requires of us.
When we become overwhelmed by the busyness of what we think our purpose is, let us truly get back to the fundamental reminder as recorded in Micah 6:8...our true purpose is to do what God requires of us:
* To do what is right
* To love mercy and
* To walk humbly before our God.
