Bible Ballistics: BBs #105 Stolen Memory???
When one of our granddaughters was small and she didn’t want to do something, she would say, “somebody stole my memory”. Well it was funny from a 3 year-old child but for we adults it’s often not so funny. Add technology to that and it’s often worthy of tears instead of laughter. I went to write this article this morning and had some notes I had recorded on my IPhone and guess what, ‘somebody stole my memory’. I didn’t realize that upgrading the operating system on my phone would erase my recordings!!! Aghast for just a few minutes, I was brought to remember that it’s not the phone that I serve but the Almighty God.
Revelation 4:8-11 says, “And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. 9 And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever, 10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, 11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”
My/our God is the Lord God Almighty—
Who was, and is, and is to come—
Who lives forever and ever—
Who is worthy of worship—
Worthy of MY Worship—
Worthy of MY Thanks–
HE is worthy of –
Glory and Honor and Power—
Because “…thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created”
My God is creator of all!! And my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is also creator. He was there, is here and will be forever also.
Colossians 1:16-17, “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.”
So??? Here’s our shot for today. I may forget things, loose things, misunderstand things—
But my God never does!!!
He can supply my every need, regardless of what it is. If He can’t bring those things back to my heart and mind, then guess what??? He’s got something better for me to consider.
“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
My memory may come and go but Psalm 97:1 says,
“The Lord reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.“
AMEN AND AMEN!!! Look up and press on!!! God’s got it!!!
