"One God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all." Ephesians 4:6
Our last verse for this season of Summer in the Scriptures focuses solely on our great God. Paul focuses on the fact that God reigns over all. Paul does not stop with the fact that God is sovereign over all, he goes on to say that God is through all, that is working through all circumstances and in all circumstances. It is amazing how God's word is a balm for my soul. As I think about school starting and all that needs to be accomplished in the coming weeks, I am overwhelmed. However, as I meditate that God is over all the things on my to-do list and He is working through those things that trouble me most. My soul is quieted in the fact that my Father is with me in and through all my circumstances. We serve a good, good Father.
I pray that you have enjoyed your time memorizing God's word. It has been a joy for me to spend time in God's word in this way. Each week as we focused on different aspects of God, His love, power, His desire that we walk in unity, God used these aspects to speak to a direct need in my heart. These verses compelled me to pray and think differently.
I pray that God uses His word in your life to do immeasurably more than all you can ask or imagine.
