Heart to Heart: Wonderful Counselor

Praise the Lord, our Wonderful Counselor! He is holy, righteous, good, true, merciful, gracious, longsuffering, just, all-wise, all-knowing, all power is in His hand. By His word, He made the heavens and the earth and everything in them, visible and invisible. Nothing or no one can stand against Him and His purposes. He executes His perfect plans without fail. Blessed be the name of the Lord God, Most High! He bids us come, seek His face and walk in His ways. From generation to generation, He is the same. Glory, Hallelujah!

God's Righteous Judgments Are In All The Earth, His Salvation To The Ends Thereof

God who in times past, commanded that His people walk in His statutes, keep His judgments and do them (recounted in Ezekiel Chapter 20), is the same God today. He changeth not. As it was then and is now, our faithful Creator desires to have a people who put their trust in Him and walk in His ways. 

The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the statues of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them Your servant is warned, and in keeping them is great reward. (Psalm 19:7-11)

There was not much rejoicing, as the people of God sojourned in the wilderness some forty years, but rather much complaining, and a desire to return to the land of their captivity. Many forsook the Lord for idols, the work of their hands, and they and their descendants did likewise in the land of promise. Yet, our God who is slow to anger and abounding in mercy, extended His grace, and sent His prophets to deliver His word, with the expectation that a rebellious people would acknowledge the error of their ways, repent and turn back to God, for their own good.   

There is not an arm like the Lord's, Creator of heaven and earth. He is mighty to save. Relying on a mighty army will not deliver any. "For the horse is prepared for the day of battle, but deliverance is from the Lord." (Proverbs 21:31; see also Ezekiel 17:15.)

God's righteous judgments are in all the earth; His salvation to the ends thereof.

Thus says the Lord God: "I will take also one of the highest branches of the high cedar and set it out. I will crop off from the topmost of its young twigs a tender one, and will plant it on a high and prominent mountain. On the mountain height of Israel I will plant it; and it will bring forth boughs, and bear fruit, and be a majestic cedar. Under it will dwell birds of every sort; in the shadow of its branches they will dwell."

 "And all the trees of the field shall know that I, the LORD, have brought down the high tree and exalted the low tree, dried up the green tree and made the dry tree flourish; I, the LORD, have spoken and have done it." (Ezekiel 17:22-24)

A Prayer: 

Thank You blessed Shepherd and Savior, for Your cleansing fountain. For the power to live a holy life. For taking away the stony heart and giving us a new heart and a new spirit within. For putting Your Holy Spirit within us, and causing us to walk in Your statues, to keep Your judgments and do them. To You alone wise God, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, now and forevermore. Amen.

His Glory Fills the Earth!

Just a few days ago, the nation celebrated its Independence with festivities and fireworks. The latter lighting up the sky in a kaleidoscope of awesome color and design. The crowds cheered and everyone was filled with a sense of awe and wonder.

Our merciful God in heaven is about filling the earth with His glory and what a glory it is! It cannot be packaged or sold. He desires for His ways to be known on earth and His faithfulness to all generations. In the midst of our everyday existence, he wants to be ruler of our hearts. He wants us to settle our minds on Him and trust in His awesome name! - He is I AM. His glorious power is changing us from glory to glory and He is able to deliver.


Our God is an awesome God! His lightnings light up the world and causes the earth to bud and to flourish. "For as the earth brings forth its bud, and the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations." (Isaiah 61:11) 


God bless you and cause you to grow in the knowledge of Him. Knowing Him is eternal life.


Lord God, let Your kingdom come, let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Amen.
