For this is what the Lord says-he who created the heavens, his is God, he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it, he did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited- he says: “I am the Lord, and there is no other. I have not spoken in secret, from somewhere in a land of darkness; I have not said to Jacob’s descendants, Seek me in vain, I, the Lord, speak the truth; I declare what is right. Isaiah 45:18-19
As I read these words from the prophet Isaiah I think of the ten commandments that God gave to Moses years before hand. He wrote these commandments with his finger so that once all reads them we will engrave them in our hearts forever. Read Exodus 20:1-3 and God spoke all these words. “I am the Lord, your God, who brought you out of Egypt, and out of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me. In other words it is wrong for us to made anyone a God in our eyes for their is only one True God. We do not worship another person or thing as a God. Try to imagine if you would long ago before anything exist as we know, than God spoke a word and things came to past. He made the heavens and the earth for man and woman pleasure, and he also made us the keepers of this earth to care and love all living things, creatures and one another. Sometimes as a drive by different areas I am amazed at how dirty things have become, I ask myself is this the way we would care for our homes and if the answer is of course not, so than why do we treat God’s world like things. Garbage toss on the ground like it was a garbage can, into our oceans and lakes killing living things and I just don’t understand why humans enjoy doing this and more important why don’t some even care at all. God is a God who loves all of his children unconditional, he created this world for us to enjoy can we all take care of it and all things as if they were our own personal treasures because all of this is our treasure and a gift from God. It is a reminder how much he loves us and how precious we are to him.
Grace and Peace to You My Friends
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your path. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
I always enjoy having a good cup of tea and different ones at that as well. So this morning as I begin to study God’s word I first make a cup of tea for myself, so my friend before you move forward in reading this post, grab a cup of tea, maybe a cup of coffee or whatever you may enjoy drinking in the morning to start your day. My daily devotions today was reading from the book of Proverbs in reference to trusting God each and everyday of our lives. Believe me, that one word trust is not easy for any of us can do alone in our lives. Especially when we have been hurt by someone that we came to trust over time. However as I re-read this story it brought me back to almost too summers ago. As I was in my dinner room on my computer I heard a bang at my picture window in my living room. At first I didn’t get up because you see I feed a stray cat I named Fluffy and I thought it was her banging at my window to get my attention to come into the house. For some reason I decided to get up from my chair and open my front door to my house. There on my deck was a tiny small bird flapping it’s wing, I was not sure what to do as of yet, so I walk over to the tiny bird quietly and I see that it’s tiny leg was caught in the deck and then I pick it up, in my hands. This little bird stay on my left hand for quite sometime, for more than an hour. As I was stroking it’s head all the way to it’s tale I realize that it was closing it’s eyes. What came into my mind was these words from the book of Proverbs: Trust in the Lord with all of my heart. I came to realize if this wild bird was trusting me as I help its tiny leg, I too needed to trust God in my life. When we have been hurt in our lives it is so hard for us to trust even God however I know that is what I need to do, not just today but everyday. When we get hurt by anyone we think we are not worth loving, and our lives doesn’t matter and no one cares. Please let me tell you how much God loves you, plain and simply you are his child
Just think you’re here not by chance, but by God’s choosing. His hand formed you and made you the person you are He compares you to no one else—- you are one of a kind You lack nothing that His grace can’t give you He has allowed you to be here at this time in history to fulfill His special purpose for this generation.
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens
Grace and Peace To You My Friends
