The Psalmist wasn’t disillusioned or off kilter when he wrote “forever, oh Lord, Your word is firmly fixed in the heavens”. God’s word is His way, His promise and His will; that will never be thwarted.
He has given us the gift, and the curse, of a (semi) free well yet He reigns in spite of and because of our actions and in-actions, we remain His servants, willing vessels or not, He controls what matters most; time, space, and matter as He so desires.
This is one reason that abortion on demand is so wrong. It usurps and is an abuse of our free will. We aren’t God. We shouldn’t take an innocent person’s life, born or not. There is life in the blood, in that of a beating heart, with his or her own unique DNA and everlasting, God breathed soul.
The world is broken, if you haven’t noticed. It’s still beautiful, God still loves it and us (see John 3:16), but until Christ comes back and God wipes the slate and recreates it for good, we are caught in the ultimate paradox between good and evil.
Willing or unwilling, we serve at the pleasure of God. The question is will we be good servants or bad servants?
Word over World
PS – Did you notice, ‘Thy kingdom come, thy will be done in earth, as in heaven’ relevance?
You are loved
God is a God of unlimited abundance and love. He deserves and demands we seek Him will ALL if hearts, soul, mind and strength for we were created for this very purpose.
I don’t likely know who you are or that when and if you are reading this post right now but God does. He cares and His word promises His love. If you haven’t and aren’t living for and loving Him in return, there is no time like the present. He awaits. His word is forever but the time for your salvation is not. Why not today, why not now.
