PRAISE IS BEAUTIFUL!

Today’s Reading: Psalms 147

The sun burst over the unique sandstone topography in Timna Park in the Jordan Valley in Isreal. Such a scene should cause us to think of our Mighty Creator! It is most appropriate that the first and last words of today’s reading would be, “PRAISE THE LORD!”

Key Verses: Psalm 147:3-5

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name. Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite!

 

Our Creator not only created the stars, but He has a name for each one. Even with all our modern technology, astronomers have never been able to see all the stars and number them. Only our infinite God understands the vastness of the universe. Even though He is great in power, He is even greater in His care for His creation and, in particular, for us! He comes to us and heals the brokenhearted and binds up our wounds! We must remember that this Great Lord made us in His image, and therefore, He will not interfere unless invited to do so by those He put in charge of this world. That’s us! God chose the ancient Israelites to receive His Word for the entire human family, and through them we have been given the Word of God which we read every day. With this privilege comes an awesome responsibility… to do everything in our power to make sure the whole world would hear of the mercies and judgments of our holy and loving God.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

I am reminded, O God, in each Psalm I read that You are great! I marvel that You, the Creator of the universe, are so concerned about me as an individual. I pray for Your Spirit to so fill me that I will be able to effectively communicate Who You are to others. There is one person to whom I should speak today, and when the opportunity presents itself, may I be faithful and effective in sharing Your Word to that one, and others, by my words, my actions, and my giving. In the name of the One who did this 100% of the time, Jesus Christ. Amen!!!

100 PERSONAL WORDS:

I have the honour of being called “Founder” by the men and women of God who currently lead Crossroads. Our website 100huntley.com carries the daily 100 Huntley Street television show. I call this a “show” because we want to “show” the great God of the universe, Who “heals the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds.” We, as a human family, must understand that the majority of the inhabitants of earth have made it clear that they don’t want God involved in their lives. God is not a dictator. He is a Lover! His great heart is broken! We’ve rejected His love. We’ve taken prayer and the Bible out of our public schools and much of the public square. Ever since our first human parents, we’ve separated ourselves from God and from His maintenance of creation over which He gave us dominion. Thus nature is left on its own, and the result is disaster after disaster. It’s our fault, not God’s. Yet we can respond with God’s love after such disasters and help to “bind up their wounds.” Crossroads provides ways to help (click here).

Yours for reaching out to others with God’s unending love,

David

  1. You heal the brokenhearted and bind up their wounds. You sustain the humble but cast the wicked to the ground, Lord. We Sing to You Lord with grateful praise and make music to our God on the harp. Praying David’s prayer and asking for yours today, fellow saints in the Lord.

    He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.
    Isaiah 40:29 ESV

      • WThank you Beverlee for your prayers. Edward saw the oncologist today. His blood is stable but his platelets and neutrophils are on the low side.
        She wants him to have a blood test in two weeks and then talk to him and I on the phone. She is very concerned that he shouldn’t get infections. No more chemo pills until she sees the results .of the blood tests.She also wants to check his bone marrow in The New Year.
        Continuing to pray for your health as well. Blessings Eleanor.❤️

  2. ”Have Thine own way, Lord,
    Have Thine own way;
    Thou art the Potter,
    I am the clay.
    Mould me and make me
    After Thy will,
    While I am waiting,
    Yielded and still.
    2
    Have Thine own way, Lord,
    Have Thine own way;
    Search me and try me,
    Master, today.
    Whiter than snow, Lord,
    Wash me just now,
    As in Thy presence
    Humbly I bow.
    3
    Have Thine own way, Lord,
    Have Thine own way;
    Wounded and weary,
    Help me, I pray.
    Power, all power,
    Surely is Thine,
    Touch me and heal me,
    Savior divine.
    4
    Have Thine own way, Lord,
    Have Thine own way;
    Hold o’er my being
    Absolute sway.
    Fill with Thy Spirit
    Till all shall see
    Christ only, always,
    Living in me.”

  3. Good morning everyone, I have a prayer request to ask of you all. My husband and I are going south in the early morning. Would you pray that we would be blessed with a safe trip. We will be sometime Sunday. It’s a 22 hour trip. I once prayed to God to surround us with Christians. He answered that prayer as the park we are in has a lot of born again Christians. They are wonderful and it is like one big happy family. Thank you.

  4. Praying for everyone on the blog, that our Lord Jesus Christ
    would be with them through their trials and suffering & give them
    healing and protection and peace of mind, in Jesus’ Holy Name, Amen.
    Thank you for your prayers as I go for heart tests & they show good results.
