100 Words - YR2 November 12 - Praise Is Beautiful!
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,
