“We do not make God; he makes us.”

prayingpsalmsFrom Eugene H. Peterson’s Praying With the Psalms:

O Israel, trust the in LORD! He is their help and their shield. ~ Psalm 115:9

We do not make God; he makes us. We do not take care of him; he takes care of us. We do not invent new attributes and duties for him; he creatively leads us into new styles of obedience and experiences of blessings. This realization evokes responses of trust and praise.

PRAYER: I give glory to your name, O God; I will say words that are obedient to your commands and engage in acts that express your love. I will put the workings of my mind and the movements of my body to your service, in trust and praise.  Amen.
