Blessings Folk!!

Today’s reading from the “So That’s Why!” Bible consists of pp. 150-154, Leviticus 14-16.

A brief word

Many of our “virtual” family here are undergoing some trying weather times...ice, snow...tough winter weather.

Remember that the Lord knows what is happening!

Job 38:29-30
29 Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?
30 The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.

(These are questions of the Lord...rhetorical...only the Lord can do all listed in this chapter!)

Ps 147:1-15
147 Praise ye the Lord : for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.
2 The Lord doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.
3 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
4 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.
5 Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.
6 The Lord lifteth up the meek: he casteth the wicked down to the ground.
7 Sing unto the Lord with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God:
8 Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.
9 He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.
10 He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.
11 The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.
12 Praise the Lord , O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.
13 For he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates; he hath blessed thy children within thee.
14 He maketh peace in thy borders, and filleth thee with the finest of the wheat.
15 He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth: his word runneth very swiftly.


Therefore, let us praise the Lord.

Look what the Lord does…

Gathers together the outcast
Binds up wounds
Knows the number of the stars...calls them all by names
Lifts up the meek
Cast down the wicked
Covers the heaven with clouds
Prepares the rain for the earth
Makes grass grow upon the mountains
Gives the beast his food
Strengthened the bars of Jerusalem
Blessed the children within Jerusalem
Makes peace
Fills with finest wheat
Gives the snow like wool
Scatters the hoarfrost (frost) like ashes
Cast forth ice like morsels
His Word melts them
He causes the wind to blow
He causes the water to flow

Look at His character…

Infinite understanding
Does not delight in the strength of man nor animal...as man does!
Takes pleasure in those that fear Him

Look at our response…

Sing unto the Lord
Praise the Lord
Fear Him
Hope in His mercy

Let us praise the Lord...without ceasing.
