I suppose that people can be divided into only two categories. Their are cat people and dog people. I like both, but I probably lean toward being a cat person. With traveling as much as we do it is just easier to leave a cat for a couple of days than leaving a dog. The cat, I think actually enjoys the break.
But I also kind of like the cat’s personality. Now we have a great cat. Her name is Blossom. That’s not really a strong name for a cat. But she is not the typical cat. She actually likes being around people and always the center of the action. You’ve probably heard the old joke relating the difference between a cat and a dog. The dog sees you feed him, and takes care of him and thinks that you like a god. The cat noticing that you feed her and takes care of her thinks that she is a god.
Pretty true I think, but cats are not the only ones who think that sometimes. I believe that you and I often approach God on those terms. We seem to think that we are the center of the universe and when things don’t go our way, we get angry with God, as if he has fallen down on His job of keeping us healthy, wealthy and wise.
The prophet Jeremiah reminds us of this when he wrote, ‘Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you.
There are lots of things too hard for me. But for Him, there is nothing too hard. Yes, He loves you and yes He provides for us, but He does not do so because we are God, but because He is. Take courage and serve the Lord today.
Jeremiah 32:17 New International Version (NIV)
“Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.
