The Lord

 2The LORD doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.
 3He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
 4He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.
 5Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.
 6The LORD lifteth up the meek: he casteth the wicked down to the ground. 
(Psalm 147:2-6, King James Version)

The Lord

Who is this glorious and wondrous God we serve? The Psalmist pours out his praise reminding us of who God is and what He does for His people. Look at his words from Psalm 147.

*The Lord doeth build up Jerusalem
*He gathereth together the outcasts of Israel
*He healeth the broken in heart
*He bindeth up their wounds
*He telleth the number of the stars
*He calleth them by their names
*His understanding is infinite
*The Lord lifteth up the meek
*He casteth the wicked down to the ground.

Indeed, who is like unto our God? There is none other like Him; in Him we have perfect peace and trust for His strength and wisdom are infinite. We have every confidence that we may go to Him, for He never leaves nor forsakes His children.

Is anything on this earth out of the controlling hands of Almighty God? No! He reigns supreme over all of heaven and earth. Each day our scientists are discovering more wonders about our solar system as they are able to peer deeper and deeper into its depths, but God knows every single star in existence. Not only does He know ever single star, but he knows every single star's name!

Are we broken in heart? We can go to God, for He, alone, can heal the broken in heart. Are we deeply wounded? God binds up the wounds of His children and gently carries them in His arms. Are we cast down by those of this world? God will lift up the meek who have put their trust in Him, and He will cast the wicked down to the ground. Though it may appear that the wicked have control over this world, it is not so! The day will come when God will put everything in its rightful place; true justice will be served.

This is the God we serve! This is the Lord! Go to Him today, for in Him is all goodness, righteousness, and truth. Satan, the father of lies, has bound this world with his evil ways, but the Lord will triumph over all. The time will come when even Satan will be bound, forever!
 7Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. (Psalm 37:7, King James Version)
God Bless You,
