The psalmist understands, as we should, that God is not in everything, but that He created everything. More importantly, God not only created everything, He is also in sovereign control of everything. There is not a single event, action, or thought that escapes His gaze. There are no surprises to God. Yet, it is the faithful who are most often surprised when God makes His presence known.
Our heavenly Father made us a promise, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Heb. 13:5) He didn’t just create us, and leave us to fend for ourselves. Our Creator wants us to live the Christian life with the bold confidence of knowing that He is ever present. This is at the core of the Apostle Paul’s statement, “The righteous shall live by faith." (Rom. 1:17)
Faith means you can marvel at the earth in all its God-given splendor and know God’s almighty hand created it. Likewise, faith also means that no matter how desperate your situation, the God who created you is firmly in control of your circumstances. His Spirit lives inside the believer; guiding and directing their path through every hardship and loving with a love that is unmatched by man.
