"Remember His wonders which He has done,
His marvels, and the judgments uttered by His mouth,
O seed of Abraham, His servant,
O sons of Jacob, His chosen ones!
He is the Lord our God;
His judgments are in all the earth.
He has remembered His covenant forever,
The word which He commanded to a thousand generations."
He has remembered:
(missing Zane, Maddie, Tucker, Eliana, Millie)
Not only this, but we Gentiles have been adopted into this promise, His covenant. "He is the Lord our God," also. The entire world 1. has seen Creation and its wonders and marvels. 2. has seen a man who was crucified 2,000 years ago and are still talking about Him, the man who has moved nations to uplift His name against those who would still seek to kill His followers and those of Abraham's seed. I take great, tremendous comfort in that He is faithful to His word and promise to a thousand generations. Hmm. How many generations has it been since the Garden? Maranatha, come quickly Lord Jesus.
The rest of the chapter which I will leave you to read is concerning all He did when He made His covenant with Abraham giving him the Promise Land, then used Egypt to save His people under Joseph, and when He brought His children out of Egypt under Moses. Our God even uses the out of the boundary times, coloring out of the lines, to save us sometimes.
"Oh David!" Oh, Addie! Good job!
Once upon a time, someone we know fell upon very, very hard times and was desperate to support his family. They left for what I called "Egypt" for a period, a place I did not approve of, yet knew God could work in it for His good. Even Joseph, Mary, and the child Jesus escaped to Egypt for awhile. He did not stay there forever. God provided another, better way to support his family eventually. Sometimes God remembers His children even in a place called Egypt, figuratively speaking, and calls them out. Sometimes in lean years, He has been known to feed them there. Coloring out of the lines is how our creative God works sometimes and it is still beautiful.
These kids cut their teeth on baseball,
I won't be posting a daily blog as we are watching the SW Regional Little League Softball games our granddaughters are playing in down in San Bernadino. Don't know how long we'll be gone.
Al coached a lot of Little League baseball games but now loves to watch Softball.
Softball Generations--they didn't getting it from this grandma!
