H. Walford Davies composed the hymn, “God, be in my Head,” and it was published in 1910. It has undergone some changes in arrangement over time, but the words remain the same. Those words sum up the Christian walk from birth to death and beyond.
This hymn says it all when it comes to our relationship with God. He should be in every aspect of our living from the moment we wake up in the morning until we lay our heads and fall asleep at night. We should be learning about Him on a daily basis, through His manual for living, the Bible. We should use our talents and gifts to further His kingdom.
In these times of great tribulation throughout our world – during the pandemic which still has us all a little shattered and undone – the weather catastrophic events which have wiped out property and possessions – an unprovoked war which we grow more incensed about each day – the killing of innocent unborn children – the pathetic drop in morality and giving in to temptation – the homeless, the hungry, the poor – it’s more than necessary that we return to our Creator, God who controls everything. As heinous as it all seems, it’s part of a much greater plan which will one day be revealed to us.
We must be sure that our children, grandchildren and future generations learn to rely on Him too. The image of God and His love for us should be emblazoned on our hearts and imprinted into our souls. This should be something we do out of gratitude for what He does for us every day of our lives.
Thank you, Holy God, for your ever-present love. I don’t deserve it, but you give it freely. Be with me in every step I take today and every day. Give me strength, faith and hope in your promises. Let me never forget the sacrifice you have willingly given for me.
