Lord Is Your Keeper

We can not know the mind of God nor should we pretend to.

God reveals himself to each of us through the moments of our lives as our need dictates.  If only we make space in our lives to know God’s will for us.

Too often our personal desires, and thoughts take up all the space in our daily lives, our thoughts are too loud and block out the still quiet voice of our Lord.

And worse than that we pretend to know the mind of God and we bend scripture and our faith to come in line with our personal desires and wants.

Here is the problem our desires are rooted in human understanding, and are motivated by human experiences of pleasure, pain, love, hate, greed, lack and competition.

Psalm 121:7 reminds us that it is our eternal souls that God is protecting for all eternity, not necessarily our human experiences.

And when we are mindful in the moments of our lives, of God’s presence, of God’s voice, we find that we are content and filled with joy not matter human experience that we find ourselves in – we have all that we need, we are full.

Following all of scriptural rules and not being mindful of God in our daily lives  we are putting our eternal souls at risk.  

We are placing ourselves in the position of assuming we know the mind of God.

Living in a state of mindfulness for God’s hand in our lives we are humbling ourselves to his will.  

We come to know our Lord as our keeper, we will know we are safe in God’s hands.
