God Hath Spoken!

 7God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
 8Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;
 9Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; over Philistia will I triumph. 

God Hath Spoken!

How much easier might out lives be if we just grasped the first three words of Psalm 108, verse 7: God hath spoken. How has He spoken? In His holiness.

What do we know of the word or words of God? What do we know of the power of His speech? We do not have to go any farther than Genesis 1 to answer that question.

Genesis 1:3: And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

Genesis 1:6: And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

Genesis 1:9: And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

Genesis 1:11: And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

Genesis 1:15: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

Genesis 1:20: And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

Genesis 1:24: And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

Genesis 1:26-27: And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

This is the God we serve! He speaks and it is so. Why, then, do we chaff so much at God's Word? How do we even dare to challenge or question the Word of God? Even more so, why are we so prone to doubt God's promises to us, His children? If God simply spoke the world into existence, can we not trust Him to provide for us, His children?

As you go about the duties of this day, I challenge you to remind yourself, God hath spoken, and it is so!

God Bless You,
