I shared this verse last week but it is just lingering in my mind and heart. I love when that happens. I always feel my hope and faith rise when I have a Word that keeps coming to my heart over and over. I believe that is a specific word God is impressing on me for a reason and this verse is encouraging because I would rather have God the maker or heaven and earth on my side and be my help. I know that with Him all things are possible.
"Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth." ~ Psalm 124:8
How powerful is that?! How encouraging is this?!
I mean when you think of the creation around us, the beauty of it, the depth of it, the mysteries of the making of the Earth and Heavens and that CREATOR is on OUR SIDE and is OUR HELP.....WOW!!!!
I have been thinking of this bird called the Lark. There are several types of larks and most our in the Old World and only one type of Lark is in North America.
I got to thinking of this bird because my daughter and I have been watching an older series called Lark Rise to Candleford. Which is a wonderful wholesome series that my daughter and I have enjoyed so much. Anyway, they mention the Larks quite often and the music they make at dawn and how beautiful it is. Then in some of my devotions and readings of late I have read quotes from historical preachers mentioned these Larks at times. They encourage to be as a Lark at daybreak unto the Lord. Because the Lark's sing beautifully at daybreak.
Singing and Making Melody in our hearts unto the Lord. I know that is what those little Lark's are doing. God created these magnificent birds that are known to have one of the most beautiful sounds in bird sounds. That God who created that tiny little creature also created me and HE IS OUR HELP!
I know this all sounds really out there...but I wanted to encourage us see a bigger picture than what we see now. His eye is on the sparrow and I know HE watches US!
And because of that we can sing because we are happy, we can sing because we are free. Free from worries, free from fear, free from bondage, because HE IS OUR HELP! If he cares about birds...HE CARES ABOUT US!
There are several neat videos that come up of Lark Birds and there songs. Google them if you have a chance. Let us sing and make melody in the LORD!
What can you sing about today? I am singing because I am thankful for His Love for me! What about you?
