    Then Satan answered Yahweh, and said, 'Does Job fear God for nothing? Haven't you made a hedge around him, and around his house, and around all that he has, on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. But put forth your hand now, and touch all t...

Baby Talk

  • Surely I have stilled and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with his mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me. Psalms 131:2 WEB

    Babies tend to cry a lot. Anytime they want something, they begin to cry. During this time, the parents are usually quick to look after them, partly out of love and the rest to stop the noise. I have seen them cry when you bring them food, and then cry when you take it away. They certainly cry when they are hungry, and they always want it right now.

    As a child grows and then becomes weaned, they learn to wait on the meal being prepared. They are content to play and carry on with their life until the meal is finally served, and they are called to eat. This is a weaned child, one that will tell the parents that they are hungry, and then wait for it. Children are not as needy or fussy as infants.

    You need to reach a point in your walk with the Lord where it no longer matters if you get what you want immediately. You learn to pray and wait confidently instead of giving into panic and despair. No matter what happens, God is still on the throne.

    When things don't make sense, pray about it and then put it on the shelf. Don't let it consume the rest of your life and drive those around you crazy. If God hasn't given you the answer yet, learn to wait for it patiently.

    Also, don't find the one thing in the Bible that you cannot understand and then let that consume your life. There are a lot of other verses in there to read. Just pray about that one and let it rest. In His time, God will usually give you the answer.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for bringing me this far. Help me to grow in grace, guide my steps and help me make the right decisions today. I understand that You will tell me what I need to know when the right time comes, and I trust You to do that. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Good morning Pastor and Sylvia.  Your last paragraph resonated with me.  There are a couple (well maybe more than a couple;) of verses that give me pause.  But believe it or not, I never understood why Jesus had to die for our sins.  

Now I don’t know if this is theologicaly sound but I believe that God did give me this understanding.  One day I realized that Adam and Eve (and all humanity) disobeyed God.  And Jesus made that right by obeying God even to the point of sacrificing His life.   It might be too simplistic, but it did bring a measure of understanding to me.
