Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits (Ps. 103: 1-2).

The neglect for God’s grace and mercy is enough to justify sudden destruction; yet, by His great grace we live on.  We strive on as if it is by our own strength and ingenuity that we have life.

God has allowed us to peak into a small piece of his design as another means of providing for us.  This we have taken and called it science, physics, astronomy, etc. and many who practice these arts do not believe in their Creator; even with the evidence at their finger tips.

The futility of our thinking is evidence against us, that we could not have evolved.  Man’s denial of the Omniscient God is just another way of trying to control the world.  It is simply another form of rebellion against the One who gives us life.

Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s”. (Ps. 103: 3-5)

The angel told Daniel that “many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase” (Daniel 12:4) and knowledge has indeed increased.  God has given us the tools to sustain life and to search out His mysteries but we have taken Him out of the equation; leaning on our own understanding and taking credit for what He has revealed to us.  In doing so, we have wrought our own destruction.  We continue to talk of peace while our hands create devices for destruction.  We slowly remove God from public squares and lease them out to the devil.

Still, we who keep His covenant are not surprised nor are we afraid for what is happening.  We bow before Him in prayer and supplication for our brothers and sisters; both saved and dying.  We recognize these things as part of the birth pangs Christ warns us of; we know how this will all come to an end. we know that “The LORD has established His throne in heaven, and His Kingdom rules over all”.

Bless the Lord, O my soul!
