Soaring On Eagle’s Wings
“Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself." Exodus 19:4
There is never a time when The Lord leaves us by ourselves. We may feel like we are alone because of what we are going through, and although those around us do not understand what we are going through, we are never alone. There are some things we go through and we cannot even begin to articulate to those who are close to us exactly what it is we are facing.
"Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee." Psalm 118:28
It is such a blessing to have God like our God. There are other people and things that may try to set themselves up as a god, but there is not another god like our God. The God we serve is awesome, and is doing wonderful things in our lives. The God we serve has kept us through difficult times in our lives, and has given us the sunshine after the rain. The God we serve has made ways out of no way, and has performed miracles in our lives.
“And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.” Luke 17:16
The Biblical account of the story of the ten lepers reminds us of our constant need to be thankful to The Lord for all that He has done for us. These lepers were not allowed to engage in close contact with anyone. These ten lepers had to announce their disease to anyone who was in earshot of them, and constantly had to yell unclean, unclean, unclean.
Lift Up The Name Of The Lord
"I will extol thee, O Lord; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me. Psalm 30:1
Each of us has had our share of ups and downs in life, and for many of us we have had more than enough of our share of trials and tribulations than we even care to discuss.
