Praise God for another absurd week of business and opportunities. Every day I find myself amazed at the goodness of God’s provision, and the generosity and depth of His gifts. This daily message has one main theme but it’s the middle of each that does the work and it’s this classroom that leaves me on my knees with complete peace as I come down the backside of the wave and into a different perspective of His ocean.
I’ve been reading in the book of Leviticus lately. In my opinion, it’s one of the more difficult reads of Scripture. The immense repetition battles against the meandering of my mind as I replay and blend the day before into the 3am devotional. Sentences appear to intersect and replicate without warning and my attention is sparse, to say the least, in these moments, and voices inside my head encourage me to jump ahead into more palatable chapters and books.
Resisting the frailty of my flesh, I know from generous revelations that every word is God-breathed and useful for teaching and rebuking. Every word from God’s lips is dripping with honey and laced with immeasurable fortune. Every word has the power behind it to give and take as El Shaddai sees fit. The angels sing of it, the disciples died for it, and God gave His One and Only to solidify it. This constant pouring out, constant wellspring of life in every crack and around every tree, syrup flowing from the branches and roots, living water from the wasteland and never-ending manna falling from the sky, all merging together generously finding its way into my ever so undeserving cup. There is absolutely no part of my business or my life worth applauding or congratulating without Jesus Christ himself being the King of it all. I will forever sing of His goodness and His mercy in valleys of sorrow and in rivers of joy.
