Wisdom from the Psalms 11/23

 
November 23
 
Whither shall I go from thy spirit? Or whither shall I flee from they presence?
 
Benjy ran away from home about three times a week. His mother always left the door unlocked, counted to a hundred, then listened to hear the door creak open and Benjy's soft footsteps on the hallway carpet. Benjy always got to the end of the block, assessed his options, realized he didn't have any, and headed for home.
We're all Benjys now and then. We wonder why God isn't doing all He ought to be doing, we get discouraged, and then we turn away a little bit. But, just like Benjy, when we look at the options, we find that nothing comes close to our Lord Jesus Christ. Wherever we go, whatever we do, whatever our need might be, God is right there with us. Nothing can do for us what God can. We might as well stay home, because we can't ever have it any better than we have it right now.
 
Prayer: I may think that other solutions will work in dealing with my life's problems, Lord , but bring me back to the realization that nothing will do more for me than You can. There is nowhere that I would rather be than with You. Amen.
