There is no neutrality with God
The Hollow of My hand
(#183 from Suffer Well Devotional Series©)
Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand, and measured the heavens with a span, and contained the dust of the earth in a measure and weighted the mountains in scales and the hills in a balance? (Isaiah 40:12)
With one scoop, all of the waters of the earth are consumed. All of the galaxies are like jacks in the hands of a child. On one finger, all the nations of the earth rest. With one strike of My fist I could destroy the universe.
You are wondering, “Is He that big?” Your mind is unable to comprehend My Omnipotence and My Omnipresence. You regularly use these words to describe Me, and yet you have fear. How can you boast of My enormity, and yet shrink back at the thought of the harmful touch of man? Such conflicting mindsets, these thoughts inside your head. I Am concerned greatly about this double-mind of yours. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from Yahweh; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. (James 1:7-8)
Please know, it is because of double-mindedness that I have created one of the keys to My Kingdom. Be transformed by the renewing of your mind! (Romans 12:2) Break free; remove the shackles from your mind; and unlock and open the doors into a new reality. Your greatest hindrance in doing this is fear of man! You fear man even more than you fear Me.
May I say it so it is easy to remember? FEAR OF MAN IS A SIN! Why so? Fear of man means lack of trust in Me. Do you realize how sinful this is?
Here is a word for My loved ones, a stepping stone, a new beginning. I control all of My dust. Remember this the next time that creepy little thing called “fear of man” tries to overtake your mind. I have you in My hand. And there is plenty of room My child; I promise.
