2 Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.
When we are young and instructed to leave the stove alone, not to cross the street unattended or stay away from strangers, we may not necessarily understand why. Our parents or caretakers were protecting us from potentially hazardous situations.
Our Father in Heaven watches out for us. Although we do not get an “audible” from Him (unless He so decides), through His Word, He warns us about who and what is dangerous and how to handle anything or anyone we encounter.
Do you remember a time in your life when you were spared from something unfortunate? If you can or cannot, maybe nothing comes to mind, just know that constantly there is a war waged against the Lord’s children. The safest place for us to be as believers is under His wings, abiding in willful obedience.
We are redeemed ! Let’s not whisper it, not wanting to disturb others. Let’s SHOUT IT FROM THE MOUNTAIN TOPS.. I AM REDEEMED!
From eternal damnation, our Precious Jesus saved us, now isn’t that something WORTH proclaiming to anyone who will hear?
Physical and spiritual warnings:
Proverbs 4:14 Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men.
Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Tender and Loving Father
Thank You for Your
Thank You for the warnings You give us about evil
Both embodied in humans and spirit
We know that in and through You
We have the authority to rebuke wickedness
Please do not find us timid or hesitant to engage
All praise, honor and glory to Jesus
Who left Heaven to dwell with us
Lived a humble, human life
The Innocent Lamb of God
Suffered a brutal death
As payment for our sins
Was dead and buried
CONQUERED DEATH (hallelujah!)
And reigns with the Father in Glory
We recognize the Holy Spirit
Who guides, directs, convicts and comforts and
So much more we probably do not even comprehend
O Holy Trinity!
How marvelously fascinating You Are!
How we love You
For things we know You have done for us
For those we have no idea
Let us not take for granted the enormity of the security
Found by trusting You as our Lord and Savior.
Through the precious blood of Jesus,
HIS EYE IS ON THE SPARROW
OLD RUGGED CROSS-(Elvis)
HE TOUCHED ME (Who will agree with me, when you’ve been touched by Jesus, you KNOW it!)
GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN
