Sometimes the Word of God cracks me up with laughter galore. I was reading in Psalms this morning out of the Message Bible. In chapter 12 King David is on a rant about his enemies. In verses 3 and 4 he tells God, “Slice their lips off their faces! Pull The braggart tongues from their mouths! I’m tired of hearing, “We can talk anyone into anything! Our lips manage the world.” Ooooooooh, you and I both know that we have ALL wanted to pray a prayer like that before! And some may have actually done it!
In chapter 13:3-6 David says, “Take a good look at me, God, my God; I want to look life in the eye, So no enemy can get the best of me or laugh when I fall on my face. I’ve thrown myself headlong into your arms— I’m celebrating your rescue. I’m singing at the top of my lungs, I’m so full of answered prayers.”
Why don’t we all, “throw ourselves headlong into God’s arms” today. Look LIFE (…which is Jesus) in the eye so NO ENEMY can get the best of you. Let’s celebrate our rescue…whether we see it or not. Let’s sing at the top of our lungs for our abundance of answered prayers, amen? Amen. Celebrate your rescue!!!
So, put the knife down……no slicing lips off peoples’ faces today! That’s it…..back away from the knife….there you go…now, CELEBRATE YOUR RESCUE!
