The Psalms Project: “Because”

Tags

Psalm 116 ~ BECAUSE
“I love the LORD, because He has heard my voice and my supplications.
Because He has inclined His ear to me,
Therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live.
…You have delivered my soul from death,
My eyes from tears,
And my feet from falling.
I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.”

Are You Tired?

Tags

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion?
Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life.
I’ll show you how to take a real rest.
Walk with me and work with me – watch how I do it.
Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.
I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.
Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
~ Matthew 11:28-30

JESUS ~ Immanuel

GOD WITH US
“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.”
John 1:14

“Hail the heaven-born Price of Peace, Hail the Sun of righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings,
Risen with healing in His wings:
Mild He lays His glory by, Born that man no more may die;
Born to raise the sons of earth,
Born to given them second birth.”
~ C. Wesley


“The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light;
Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death,
Upon them a light has shined.”
Isaiah 9:2

Side by Side

“All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.”
Isaiah 53:6

Two inseparable truths: the sinfulness of mankind and God’s merciful response to our iniquity. How close do these two truths stand? They stand smack dab, right up next to each other; our great need and God’s great remedy for us are contiguous…side by side. God’s great love for His straying ones has removed all gap from between need and remedy. Read it again…and rejoice! Jesus came into this world to save what was lost.
