The Best Cook in the World

She will just add a little bit of this, and a shake of that, and it all turns out perfectly.

Psalm 94:1-23

Reference: v.9 Does he who fashioned the ear not hear?
Does he who formed the eye not see?

Explore: My mum is the best cook in the world! Ok, well she may not win any MasterChef competition, but I think her food is the best.

She has been cooking great meals for so long that she never follows a recipe. She will just add a little bit of this, and a shake of that, and it all turns out perfectly.

And she certainly knows her way around a kitchen. She can have the mixer going, something boiling on the stove top, and six different items in the oven, and she still has it all under control.

When it comes to eating at my mother’s house I know that I will enjoy every meal that is served.

Application: I have complete faith in my mother’s ability to cook delicious meals. However, there are times when I am not so confident in God’s ability to understand my situation.

If I am dealing with a certain issue I can often doubt that God has it all under control. It’s like looking in my mother’s kitchen and seeing so many things on the go, I wonder whether it’s all going to turn out ok.

However hard it is to believe, I know that God is even more capable than my mother. Not only does He have everything within His power, but He’s even created my world to begin with.

Why is it that I doubt my powerful, all-knowing Saviour? Psalm 94 was a good reminder for me that God does know what’s going on for me. He created the ear so He knows how to hear me and He created the eye so He’s more than capable of seeing me.

When things get tough, and I feel out of my depth, I need to rely on the God who made it all come to pass.

Prayer: Lord, forgive me for doubting your omnipotence. May I always rely on your never-failing love. Amen.

What is going on in your life that you need to give over to our reliable God?
