I have enjoyed the goodness of God so much that I can’t but declare to you friends! The Lord is good. He is faithful and dependable. The Lord is my strength and my salvation.
Whatever you need is in Christ saving grace! You can count on God’s unfailing love!
In the fulness of Christ strength, his power and grace, I am lifted up! You are lifted up!
And you! Yes, you! You can be lifted up too!!!!
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
Listen to me now. Give me your closest attention.
Do farmers plow and plow and do nothing but plow? Or harrow and harrow and do nothing but harrow?
After they’ve prepared the ground, don’t they plant? Don’t they scatter dill and spread cumin, Plant wheat and barley in the fields and raspberries along the borders?
They know exactly what to do and when to do it. Their God is their teacher. And at the harvest, the delicate herbs and spices, the dill and cumin, are treated delicately.
On the other hand, wheat is threshed and milled, but still not endlessly.
The farmer knows how to treat each kind of grain. He’s learned it all from God -of-the-Angel-Armies, who knows everything about when and how and where.
