The Sky Proclaims His Handiwork

Psalm 19:1 English Standard Version (ESV)

The Law of the Lord Is Perfect
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

19 The heavens declare the glory of God,
    and the sky above[a] proclaims his handiwork.

Nehemiah 9:6 English Standard Version (ESV)

6 [a] “You are the Lord, you alone. You have made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them; and you preserve all of them; and the host of heaven worships you.

One Light in a Million

Isaiah 40:26 New International Version (NIV)

26 Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens:
    Who created all these?
He who brings out the starry host one by one
    and calls forth each of them by name.
Because of his great power and mighty strength,
    not one of them is missing.

I'm pretty sure there's no one in America who doesn't know a solar eclipse is coming tomorrow.  I won't be looking, though, because I don't have the glasses!  That's okay, I'm sure I'll see the coverage of it.  I wonder what God thinks of all the excitement over one star in his creation.   I pray that we will be considering the Creator tomorrow as well as his creation.  Dominion and awe belong to Him.

A Million Lights - Michael W. Smith

He Will Return

Luke 21:34-36 New English Translation (NET Bible)

Be Ready!
34 “But be on your guard so that your hearts are not weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of this life, and that day close down upon you suddenly like a trap. 35 For it will overtake all who live on the face of the whole earth. 36 But stay alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that must happen, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

Revelation 19:6-9 English Standard Version (ESV)

The Marriage Supper of the Lamb
6 Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out,

For the Lord our God
    the Almighty reigns.
7 Let us rejoice and exult
    and give him the glory,
for the marriage of the Lamb has come,
    and his Bride has made herself ready;
8 it was granted her to clothe herself
    with fine linen, bright and pure”—
for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints.

9 And the angel said[a] to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.”

What will be left on earth after Christ calls His Bride, the church, to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb?  That thought was the inspiration for my latest Youtube upload.  Christ will return.  Are you ready?

Nobody Loves Like Jesus

Ephesians 3:18-19 New English Translation (NET Bible)

18 you may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and thus to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.

Because We Have a Big, Big God

John 16:33 New English Translation (NET Bible)

33 I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. In the world you have trouble and suffering, but take courage—I have conquered the world.”

1 Corinthians 15:57-58 New English Translation (NET Bible)

57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ! 58 So then, dear brothers and sisters, be firm. Do not be moved! Always be outstanding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.

Romans 8:37 New English Translation (NET Bible)

37 No, in all these things we have complete victory through him who loved us!

Philippians 4:13New English Translation (NET Bible)

13 I am able to do all things through the one who strengthens me.

I had to go to physical therapy again today.  I don't like to think of myself as a weenie but weenie I am.  I needed some overcoming Bible verses and thankfully God supplies.  It's a big mountain but God is bigger.

Free As a Bird

I truly love my house of the level path and remain grateful for it; however, today I would have loved it more if it had air conditioning.  We're having a heat wave here and post surgical recovery means too much time in a very warm home.  So I uploaded a song that reminded me that I've escaped my chains through Christ and am as free as a bird on a wing.  Thank you, Rend Collective, for your many songs of celebration.  My soul if not my body is soaring, and the wind cools my spirit.
