"Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God."
INSIGHT: This is the power of perspective. It's good to take a step back out of our busy lives and remember, as basic as it sounds, that God is God. That he set this whole thing in motion and holds it all together by His word. That He existed long before the universe, and will exist long after it. And yet, He didn't disengage once he set the universe spinning... in fact, His was, and still is, our dwelling place and refuge. As our troubles, concerns, worries loom large, let's remember that God is God of everything and cares for us.
PRAYER: Lord, we recognize that You and You alone are the God of the universe. You created us all and You hold us all together, and still You care deeply for us. Would You help us remember Your majesty and Your splendor as we seek refuge in You. Amen!
