The Internet Cafe invites us to join them today to share God’s Word with a photo. I chose to share a picture I took yesterday. She doesn’t have a name other than #16, but is very sweet.
The Lord, the only true God, has spoken.
He has summoned the earth
from where the sun rises to where it sets.
God shines from Zion,
the perfection of beauty.
Our God will come and will not remain silent.
A devouring fire is in front of Him
and a raging storm around Him.
He summons heaven and earth to judge His people:
“Gather around me, My godly people
who have made a pledge to Me through sacrifices.”
The heavens announce His righteousness
because God is the judge. Selah “Listen, My people, and I will speak.
Listen, Israel, and I will testify against you:
I am God, your God!
I am not criticizing you for your sacrifices or burnt offerings,
which are always in front of Me.
But I will not accept another young bull from your household
or a single male goat from your pens.
Every creature in the forest,
even the cattle on a thousand hills, is Mine.
I know every bird in the mountains.
Everything that moves in the fields is Mine.
If I were hungry, I would not tell you,
because the world and all that it contains are mine.
Do I eat the meat of bulls or drink the blood of goats?
Bring your thanks to God as a sacrifice,
and keep your vows to the Most High.
Call on Me in times of trouble.
I will rescue you, and you will honor Me.”
I love in verse 11 that God knows every bird in the mountains. How much MORE does He know us? He owns it all yet when it comes to us — He allows us to have free will (even to our detriment). He loves us!
Call on God in times of trouble and He will rescue you.
