Above All

Psalm 95:3 made me think yesterday.  The verse says that the Lord is a great God.  While I intellectually embrace that, I do not always live like I believe that is true.
Sometimes I find I do not really believe God is great.  Thoughts at DTTB.
Hebrews 11:6 ups the ante quite a bit.  Those two passages conspire to cause me to question do I really believe God is a great God, and does he really reward those who seek Him.

I find that much like the nation of Judah in Jeremiah, I try to solve my own problems.  Problems, many of which, stem from the fact that some really deep level I do not really trust that God is great and a rewarder of those who seek Him.

Further the second half of Psalm 95:3 tells me that He is a great king above all kings.  Yet I fret about how governments and regimes can thwart what I am trying to do for this great God and King.

Pretty silly.

Paul tells me that I am supposed to not be anxious but pray about everything, Philippians 4:6 – 7.  That is probably the source of my problem.  I would rather be anxious and plan rather than release my challenges to a great God and King above all kings.

From silly to stupid.
