Scripture Tuesday - Psalm 115:3

"Our God is in the heavens; He does all that He pleases."

If we could truly comprehend the size and power of God, we would surely be different people. If we were
constantly aware of His presence, always considering the fact that He is a jealous and just God, would we not
tremble in awe and fear? Were it not for our finite minds, limited and stained by the fall, surely we would! Yet
praise God that He allows His people glimpses, flashes of recognition, although we are thus handicapped. No,
we cannot comprehend His magnitude in this lifetime, but when we enter our glorified state, we will finally be
able to learn with an unfettered mind. Of course, we will never know all there is to know about Him.       
  Nevertheless, until then we ought to strive after knowing Him as best we can, meditating on the scriptures,
seeking Him earnestly in prayer, not so we can have an emotional experience, but so we can carry this
conviction in our hearts; that our God is great, and He is in control. He will be swayed by no one, for His purpose stands firm. He does all that He pleases, and we can be sure that whatever He pleases is good and perfect. So let the Devil persecute us, let him come with his fiery darts! We will not be moved, for "Our God is
in the heavens; He does all that He pleases."
