Jeremiah gives us a tiny glimpse into God’s power, yet we believe that we’re in control?
If you’re new here, each week we all learn about and memorize a Bible verse together. We’ve put the verse(s) into song to help you learn the verse and recall it during your day. If you’d like to see the archives of all the verses we’ve done so far, you can find our posts here and a list of all the YouTube videos here. We’ll also be giving a family update on what has happened in the past week.
Our weekend held a lot of grief and stress, because of a conflict between close family members. Prayers for the peace of Jesus to overwhelm the situation would be wonderful; and wisdom in speaking truth with love to them.
However, our week had some highlights. G got some goggles as an Easter gift last weekend, and used them for his swim lessons on Tuesday. They gave him a bit of confidence, and he actually put his face in the water! Didn’t dunk his head all the way, but that is progress!!
I got to go visit a friend from church who is also using the virtual school G is enrolled in with her two girls. It was great seeing what kind of curriculum she was using, and the different kinds of supplies she was able to get through them. I’m very excited about the possibilities this next school year holds for us, as (hopefully) both G and K will be enrolled for next year!
Also, I had a couple Better Way Imports parties this week. They were my first in-person parties, and given that, I think they went pretty well. A couple years ago, I would not have thought I would be doing anything like this. So it’s amazing to me that I felt pretty calm for both parties. And I have another one coming up this coming weekend! God is good!
Scripture Memory Song
But the Lord is the true God;
he is the living God and the everlasting King.
At his wrath the earth quakes,
and the nations cannot endure his indignation.
Jeremiah 10:10 (ESV)
As a whole, this verse is all about the power of God. He is Lord, living, and everlasting. You could spend a long time meditating on each of those attributes, but I’ll save that for another day. Just keep looking at all these phrases and take in the underlying, implicit message: God is all powerful. He can make the earth quake, probably with no trouble at all, and no one can endure his wrath and indignation if God does not want them to. As powerful as that seems, that’s barely scratching the surface of his power.
We have a mighty God, yet we somehow forget that all the time. We think that we are in control and that we don’t need him, but we have very little control, and why would we prefer our measly bit of control when we can get help from the one who created the entire universe?Who is more up to the task? You? Or the #God who created the entire universe with a few words? Click To Tweet
