The only thing that is ever needed is God’s approval. It doesn’t matter what others say. It doesn’t matter what the news says. It doesn’t matter what circumstances say. It doesn’t matter what the statistics say. It doesn’t matter what our weaknesses say. Only one thing is needed, and that is what God has to say. To leave the limitations of our own human understanding, no matter how advanced that understanding has become, is to really soar in realms above. To follow God’s voice is to soar on wings like eagles above the storm, God’s spirit is the eye of the storm, and his word is the air beneath our wings that let’s us soar above every earthly force that seeks to pull us down and distort the truth. No man or woman will ever trump the voice and knowledge of God. Those who are led by the Spirit are his sons. Only on thing is needed. God’s approval. Think of Simon Peter who tried to tell God what was clean, and that he would not touch what God now told him was clean. Who created the clean and the unclean? Who made everything? Who made the law? Who allowed the storm? Who made the universe, only to rest on the 7th day and call it good? He gives, and he can take away. Do we now look to the created over the one who created it? God speaks into existence. God can change it. Only one thing is needed. That is to hear one word from God and have his approval. God, I love your voice. I love the presence of your spirit. When you speak, I want to stop and listen so I can hear it. What will you say now? You have said to me, “be still, and know that I am God”. Whom shall I fear? Who’s judgement shall stand ? Who is he who condemns? It is God who’s judgement will stand. I have been favored and loved though I didn’t do anything to deserve it. I have been called, chosen, justified, and now glorified as you see fit. You have done this. You truly are my bridegroom. No one trumps you. No one is stronger than you. No one knows me and protects me like you do. Who can best my God? No one will ever come close, my glorious King. I long for you. Praise to the God who stays. Praise to the one who made me. Thank You!
