God does not create and then abandon

Psalm 139:16
Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in Thy Book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.


We begin to realize that He who fashioned such an intricate and complex creation can surely oversee and bring to completion the complexities that afflict us in our present suffering. When we see the Creator, we see One who is big enough to handle any challenge we might face. Our soul can find its proper posture of simultaneous rest and intensity [quietness and confidence] only as we gain insight into the all-capable wisdom of our Creator Father.

He is a “FAITHFUL” CREATOR. When God creates something or someone, He is always faithful to that creation. He doesn’t create and then abandon. Whatever He creates He faithfully oversees, guides, helps, and nourishes. Since I am “twice created” by God – created the second time when He made me a new creature in Christ – God is doubly “faithful” [if that is possible] to me as one of His precious saints. All of God’s promises of faithfulness spring alive at this point, including that precious assurance, “Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ” [Philippians 1:6].

Psalm 139:16 asserts that when God creates us, He establishes and numbers our days. So in the time of delayed answers I can abandon myself to my Creator, who will grant me every day for which He has fashioned me.

Psalm 95 expresses most beautifully what our attitude should be in the presence of our Creator: “Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD our Maker. For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand” [Psalm 95:6-7]. As our Maker, we should kneel adoringly before Him, bowing to His will in our lives. If He purposes that we suffer for a season, we bow to that in reverence. Furthermore [together with Psalm 100:3] these verses link the truths of God as Creator and God as Shepherd.

What God creates, He shepherds. So even though you may be suffering, dear saint, your Creator is shepherding you, feeding you, and leading you toward His Eternal city. Hallelujah! –Bob Sorge : From: The Fire of Delayed Answers.
