“Does the ax raise itself above the person who swings it, or the saw boast against the one who uses it? As if a rod were to wield the person who lifts it up, or a club brandish the one who is not wood!” (Isaiah 10:15).

There are many who doubt the existence of the Almighty God. As our leading verse points out even during the time of prophet Isaiah, nearly 3000 years ago, the doubters were there.

Whatever the doubts, all around us there is everything to point to the existence of the Almighty God. We see this with the life we have and all its complexities, to the earth we inhabit at the center of galaxies. Interestingly, whenever humans come across a new planet they express satisfaction that they have seen it all, when it’s only a glimpse into the universe that stands at the feet of the creator.

Humility is what we need if we desire to know and find God. Proverbs 11:2 says, “When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.” God will reveal Himself to those who come to Him with childlike faith. The Bible says, “But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul” (Deuteronomy 4:29).

If any desires to know God, He has promised, “The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them”   ( Psalm 145: 18-19).

Today, make a choice to seek to know God other than being like the ax that raises itself above the person who swings it; the pot that questions the potter! God will reveal Himself more to you as also, it is His desire. "I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me; I was found by those who did not seek me. To a nation that did not call on my name, I said, 'Here am I, here am I” ( Isaiah 65:1).

Prayer today: Lord Father God, maker of heaven and earth, as you have placed in me the desire to know you, today I pray that seeking you in humility, you do reveal yourself to me, and I may rise to worship you ever more, this I pray in Jesus’ name.

    "And your life will be brighter than the noonday; it’s darkness will be like the morning. And you will feel secure, because there is hope; you will look around and take your rest in security”  (Job 11:17-19.)

    Philosophers and writers have long pointed out that without hope mankind would long be gone. The philosopher Victor Frankly who survived the Holocaust where he lost his entire family found hope was the most important weapon that enabled him come out alive. He wrote, “He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how!”
    
Hope can sustain any of us through the darkest of times. This is what happened to Job when he lost everything he possessed. “Though he slay me, I will hope in him; yet I will argue my ways to his face” (Job 13:15).

    King David when he was being pursued by his enemies never lost hope. “For you have been my hope, sovereign Lord, my confidence since my youth” (Psalm 71:5). The Apostle Paul who faced countless perilous times during his missionary journeys including jail and shipwrecks never lost hope. Writing to the Corinthians he reminded them, “He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers” (2 Cor 1:10-11).

    As believers God has given us hope that our lives are not empty and meaningless, like so many others. He has given us the hope to carry us through the lowest of moments. “I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in His word I put my hope” (Psalm 130:5).
    Today, may that hope that you have in Christ sustain you through whatever circumstances you may be facing.

    Prayer for today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, today I pray in the wonderful name of Jesus that the hope I have in you lifts me up and sustains me in all situations as a conquer, in whose name I pray.
