Setting my timer for five minutes, and … GO.
This morning I read a devotional by Paul Tripp that was related to the Apostle Paul’s comment in Scripture about only boasting in Christ. Pastor Tripp pointed out that apart from the cross, we have absolutely nothing to boast in.
His comment got me thinking about how utterly and completely dependent I am upon the Lord. Without Him and His grace, I wouldn’t even be here. I would have no breath. No sight. No voice.
I would have no food to eat, no way of earning money or caring for my family. I would be entirely helpless.
I often think about that song, “I need Thee, oh I need Thee . . . every hour, I need Thee.” It’s so true, isn’t it? And yet I often slip into this autopilot mode of pseudo-self-suffciency and pretend I have everything under control. All it takes is one stomach bug or one broken bone, and I’m laid low.
I rely on the final few chapters of Job when I need to be put back in my place. Passages like this one from Job 38:5-11 set me in awe:
“’Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?
Tell me, if you understand.
Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know!
Who stretched a measuring line across it?
On what were its footings set,
or who laid its cornerstone—
while the morning stars sang together
and all the angels shouted for joy?
“Who shut up the sea behind doors
when it burst forth from the womb,
when I made the clouds its garment
and wrapped it in thick darkness,
when I fixed limits for it
and set its doors and bars in place,
when I said, ‘This far you may come and no farther;
here is where your proud waves halt’?”
Yes, Lord. You are all I need.
