As I look upon this picture it reminds of an incredible journey of trust, of taking faith steps as Dave and I hiked Mt. Everest Base Camp. Today, seeking the same while pondering a possible change, and of course asking for prayer. Dave’s job is changing significantly by the end of this month or being eliminated.
Could it be that God is forming something out of what temporarily feels or appears formless?
Formlessness, that is what God sees, yet in his creativity he can see what we can become, what we can’t see. He can fashion something new. Unlike the nursery story of Humpty Dumpty who could not be put together again and left in pieces, we can be formed and filled anew. God can take the change, a possible job elimination and re-create it in to something, something out of nothing.
I’m reminded, encouraged by the fact that God created the universe out of nothing. Yeah God. Love that truth. It gives me hope in the midst of a possible change. Dave and I have been here before, have walked this road where God allowed a job to vanish and yet provided something out of the perceived nothingness. God was faithful, is faithful, did and will continue to meet our need. I know this in my mind. I need to feel it in my heart. The fact that a loving and all-wise God created the universe out of nothing is the bedrock that assures that everything has meaning and purpose. His ways are past finding out.
Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! (Romans 11:33)
(As it is written, “A father of many nations have I made you”) in the presence of Him whom he believed, even God, who gives life to the dead and calls into being that which does not exist. (Romans 4:17)
