Is God Ever Out of Order?

God is never out of orderThe first machine I wanted to hit at the gym this morning said, “Out of Order!” Was this a sign . . . this is the excuse I was looking for not to move forward with my planned exercise routine?

Hardly! I wouldn’t think that way with other “Out of Order” signs I come across:

– Bathroom Out of Order!

– Copy Machine Out of Order!

– Escalator Out of Order!

– ATM Out of Order!

There are days I am broken and need lots of help. Days when right side up ends upside down. Days when the pain is too intense to bear. Days when I can’t help others the way I would like to. Days when I can’t make right what has been done wrong. Days when no matter how I speak, my words are not understood in the way they were intended. It is on these days when there is no where to turn except to God, I am so thankful God is never “Out of Order!”

Psalm 121 in the Bible says,

“I look up to the mountains—
does my help come from there?
My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth!

He will not let you stumble;
the one who watches over you will not slumber.
Indeed, he who watches over Israel
never slumbers or sleeps.

The Lord himself watches over you!
The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade.
The sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon at night.

The Lord keeps you from all harm
and watches over your life.
The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go,
both now and forever.

Need I write any more about how God works today other than, “Thank You God!”
