Josiah O’laughlin // Psalm 149
Knowledge is at everybody’s fingertips. It used to be only the Jeopardy winners of the world knew what seemed to be everything. Due to technology however, everyone has the same ability to gain knowledge. Culture even puts a lot of emphasis and value on knowledge. For many their ability to retain knowledge is what give them meaning in their life. Unfortunately knowledge is not enough.
We are broken in a way that has masked what we truly desire through the pursuit of knowledge. We try so hard to fill that hole in our heart and yet we seem to always come up short. Still wanting to learn yet still lacking inside with an eternal desire “to just be enough.”
Thank God we can be! I am truly blessed to tell you, you are enough. You do not need to change anything to be loved by your creator and to be valued. He has made you purposely, purposely weird or smart or even quirky on purpose. Embrace it and thank God for it. Check out the below verses and remember he takes delight in you!
Praise the Lord.
Sing to the Lord a new song,
his praise in the assembly of his faithful people.
Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
let the people of Zion be glad in their King.
Let them praise his name with dancing
and make music to him with timbrel and harp.
For the Lord takes delight in his people;
he crowns the humble with victory.
Let his faithful people rejoice in this honor
and sing for joy on their beds.
– Psalm 149
