God is full of suprises.

Friday, December 19, 2003

We are impotent; He is omnipotent.
We are finite; He is infinite.
We are limited and restricted; He is neither.

We operate in the space of time according to our clocks and according to our calendars, and He is in neither one of those spheres.

He is at work constantly in the realm of the infinite, or the eternal.

2PE 3:7 But the present heavens and earth by His word are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.

2PE 3:8 But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

ROM 15:4 For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.

It was deliverance on the one hand and destruction on the other.

We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.

Some of God’s best gifts come in the form of tiny infant surprises.

God does not give us a physical and then decide what He is able to do.

Malachi, four centuries earlier, had predicted that One would come who would be the SUN of righteousness.

No one in those days would have expected God to begin His process of change in the lives in what we would call a senior citizen couple.

Born 74 BC, by 37 BC, he had been appointed by the senate of Rome to be the Herod of the Jews. He called himself the King of the Jews.

He was the one, MAT 2:16, who became very enraged, and sent and slew all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its suburbs, from two years old and under.

Violence and cruelty and craftiness ruled the throne of the political authorities over the Jews.

PSA 37:25 I have been young, and now I am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Or his descendants begging bread.
PRO 17:6 Grandchildren are the crown of old men, And the glory of sons is their fathers.
PRO 20:29 The glory of young men is their strength, And the honor of old men is their gray hair.

JOB 42:17 And Job died, an old man and full of days.
1CH 29:28 Then he [David] died in a ripe old age, full of days, riches and honor; and his son Solomon reigned in his place.

ISA 46:4 Even to your old age, I shall be the same, And even to your graying years I shall bear {you!} I have done {it,} and I shall carry {you;} And I shall bear {you,} and I shall deliver {you.}

Little did he realize it was the second greatest moment of his life.
