Singing with the King (66) – Fight for Life

You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. (Psalm 139:13)

Ps 139 Embryo Baby

I posted this picture on Facebook and was thoroughly dismayed for the “Near-nothing” response it gathered. Now granted, most of my Facebook buds are Christ-followers, but my posts are public and… nothing. So I thought I’d post it on my blog.

Psalm 139 is a celebration of God–His omniscience, His creativity, His care, and His involvement. And it is a celebration of LIFE! The following verse says: Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. The problem is our culture has forgotten the wonder of His work; they not only don’t know it well, they don’t know it at all. So it’s up to us to remind them.

So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27)

 But now, O Jacob, listen to the Lord who created you. O Israel, the one who formed you says, “Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. (Isaiah 40:31)

From the day I was born, I have been in your care, and from the time of my birth, you have been my God. (Psalm 22:10)

The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him. (Psalm 24:1)

And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. (Romans 5:5)

Will you fight for Life?

He made us in His image; we belong to Him; and He is thoroughly involved in our lives. So for 2016, I ask the LORD that planned parenthood will end, that parts for profit will cease, and the pall of this culture of death will evaporate. But toady,pray for His Mercy. Amen.

Singing with the King (33) – My God (1)

The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. (Psalm 18:1,2)

Seagulls on a Dock

Several years ago, we took the kids to Disney World. And one of the places we stopped at was The Seas with Nemo and Friends. It had been several years since the movie, and the kids we quite a bit older, but when we come walking up to this particular attraction, what do we hear? All the seagulls were saying: “Mine, mine, mine, mine!” It put a smile on all our faces. Now since we are such selfish creatures, we can relate to such things, even when we were very little. It’s all about the stuff we have; the stuff that belongs to us.

But look at the verses above. Rather than making all the my’s and mine’s about all your stuff, why not make it about the Lord?

My Rock— these are cliff or crags or mountains. In other words, a high place, even an inaccessible place, that can only be touched or reached by our Great God.

My Fortress— the Hebrew definition for this word is stronghold. Another translations is a net or snare. That’s not a good thing for being hunted by an enemy, but to be caught by the Most High God, is another matter.

My Deliverer —One who delivers. We are carried off, preserved and rescued.

My God— David proclaims the Lord, He is God; MY God. Think about this. The King of kings and Lord of lords; the sovereign Creator and Sustainer of the universe is willing to be associated…with you!

Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10)

Next time we’ll wrap up the rest of the “my’s”.
