All His Benefits (Part 11)

“Oh yes, the Father knows our frames! He has searched us and known us through and through, and knows how short our earthly lives are and just how frail and needy we really are.”

Scripture Reference;

Psalm 103

 1Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

 2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

 3Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

 4Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

 5Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

 6The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

 7He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.

 8The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

 9He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.

 10He hath not dealt with us after…

Scripture Reference;


In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.  1Thessalonians 5:18  KJV

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.  Psalm 51:17 KJV

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you;  I will remove your heart of stone  and give you a heart of flesh.  Ezekiel 36:26 HCSB

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them…

You Rescued Me (a song written by Theresa Anne Moore)

bird-in-hand

<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3


You Rescued Me ( A song celebrating the security of the believer)

This song is my attempt to express how the teaching of the sovereignty of God and the teaching of man’s free will are compatible.  It is our human frailty that hinders us in our ability to comprehend this. His ways are so much higher than ours. 2nd Chronicles 7:14 emphasizes man’s free will. Ezekiel 36:21-32 emphasizes the sovereignty of God. This song is my feeble attempt to harmonize the two concepts.

(This is the complicated one with possibly more than one time signature. There is no recording available at this time.)

 

You Rescued Me by Theresa Anne Moore

Looking back on years gone by,
I see the path my steps have made.
So many times they seemed to slide
From the course that you had paved.

But every time I wandered
I would hear you calling me.

You never let me get away.
You rescued me.

I’ve heard it said time and again
To walk by faith and not by sight.
And to all who would believe
He’d give them everlasting life.

But we’re so full of worldly cares.
What will we eat? What will we wear?
It creates an awful load
That is impossible to bear.

But if we could catch one glimpse of Him
We’d hear his sweet voice say,
“Bring them to Me My little child.
I’m here to stay.”

(bridge)

If we would become humble, repent and seek His face I think we would discover that He was with us all the way.

He never went away, not even when I took a fall!
Oh Lord, You left the 99*, and rescued me!
You never let me get away. Oh Jesus,
You rescued me.

* 10Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.11For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.12How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?13And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.14Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish. Matthew18:10-14 KJV

Ezekiel 36:16-38 ( A Kindergarten Math Lesson)

The Lord knows these concepts, too.  He knows who His sheep are and how many He has. They may be too numerous for us to count, but the Lord is not only capable of counting them, but also is able to call them by name. The Lord understands ordinal numbers. He does things in an orderly way. He knows who will be first and who will be last. You can read more about this here:

I am thankful for many things:

I am thankful that Jesus died for me.

I am thankful that He saved me.

I am thankful that He put his Spirit in me.

I am thankful that Jesus promised that the Spirit would guide me into
all truth( John 16:13)

I am thankful that nothing can separate us from the love of God
(Romans 8:39)…Not even parents that fall short (That part was
not in the verse, but it is true, and it makes parents like me very glad.)

I am thankful that all of these promises are for our children, too.

I am thankful that my Savior does many works in his children… He
calls them, justifies, glorifies. (Romans 8:29-30)

I am so thankful that the sacrifices of God are a broken and contrite
heart (Psalm 51:17)…and that we have a God that can break hearts (Ezekiel 36…The order of events in that chapter is noteworthy.)

Scripture References;

14 My beloved is unto me as a cluster of camphire in the vineyards of Engedi.

15 Behold, thou art fair, my love; behold, thou art fair; thou hast doves’ eyes.

16 Behold, thou art fair, my beloved, yea, pleasant: also our bed is green.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.  Psalm 23:1-3 KJV

11 For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out.

12 As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.

13 And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country.

14 I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel.

15 I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord God.

16 I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment. Ezekiel 34:11-16 KJV

29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30 KJV

Lately I have been here at home working quietly and pondering much. I am thankful that the Lord has allowed me to do that. There is so much in our lives that is beyond our control…but we forget that. Then the Lord gently and sometimes abruptly reminds us, and in doing so we are given an opportunity to experience much needed rest.
