Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders you have done. The things you planned for us no one can recount to you; were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many to declare. Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but my ears you have pierced; burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not require. Then I said, “Here I am, I have come it is written about me in the scroll. I desire to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart.” (NIV)
In Psalm 40 verse five David states “Many, O Lord my God are the wonders which Thou hast done, and thy thoughts toward us: There is none to compare with Thee; if I would declare and speak of them they would be too numerous to count.”
As I read and study the Psalms, I realize that living a Christ-like life is easy until I have to put down the Bible and move into the real world and face your daily routines. It is only when we as believers take God’s written Word and make it God’s living Word in our hearts that we can answer the “but” questions from those around us with an affirmative answer just as Christ did to Satan “But it is written”.
As I look upon my daily task and try to make a different in someone life, is it for my glory or is it just a task the Lord has assigned for that day? David realized there was nothing that could be compared to God. Just think of having your daily activities guided by God. Every person you meet God has placed you there for his purpose. Every task you work on God has a purpose for it. That your life will be a blessing to every one you meet and encounter on your journey today. If there is nothing compare to God, consider then the daily activities of a person surrender to do God’s will. A person as David describes as “I delight to do Thy will O my God, Thy Law is written in my heart.
