It Could Get A LOT Worse

It Could Get A LOT Worse

Thought for today: It could get a LOT worse....
Another country, another time, another people lived out the consequences of their sin and falling away from God. Things could get a lot worse for us than they are now.
Psalm 137:1 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion. 2 We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof. 3 For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion. 4 How shall we sing the LORD'S song in a strange land? 5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning. 6 If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy. 7 Remember, O LORD, the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof. 8 O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us. 9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.

God Knew Me Before I Was Born....

God Knew Me Before I Was Born....

Thought for today: God knew me before I was born....
Woke thinking about this song and one of my favorite Psalms, 139 came to mind. It is just 24 verses but each one speaks of just how well God knows us. Why would I ever try to hide anything from him OR worry about anything ?
Psalm 139:15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

"Time is a creation of God just like everything else, HE does not exist inside time and has no real need for it. Time came along like everything else during creation because we needed it."

"When you think God could not possible use you in any meaningful way, that there is no way you with your flaws limitations and mistakes could do anything for God, remember these people."
