When You Send Your Spirit
February 28, 2011 § Leave a comment
Psalm 104:24-35 reveals a three-part structure. First, it describes God’s incredible works of creation (104:24-26). Then it describes how God provides for all of His creation (104:27-30). And it ends with an appropriate response of praise for God’s creation and provision (104:31-35). This flow from creation to providence to praise rests in the fact that “when you (God) send your Spirit, they (the creatures) are created, and you renew the face of the earth” (104:30). This is God’s promise that He will continuously create and renew through his Spirit. Based on this promise, we can be confident that God will provide for us, come what may. It gives us the opportunity to submit all our uncertainties and anxieties about the future to God. Take a few minutes at the beginning of this new week to praise God for his faithful care and provision, and present to Him everything that causes uncertainty and anxiety about this coming week.
