Summons

"The Mighty One, God, the Lord, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to the place where it sets." Psalm 50:1
Are you not amazed at the power of our God? How incredible that He speaks the world as we know it, into existence. How incredible the little intricacies. He makes the sun rise, which makes the ice/snow thaw, which waters the soil, which makes the plants grow, which feeds and sustains us. How incredible is that? The entire creation obeys when God summons. All but one---humans. The one creation made with free will is the one who rebels against such a powerful and awesome God. Are we just not very smart? Does the whole earth not testify to the power of God, each and every day? Is not the way the human body works a witness to His power?
Later on in that same Psalm, God says, "I have no need of a bull from your stall, or of goats from your pen, for every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills. I know every bird in the mountains and the creatures of the field are mine. " He can summon even the hills and they will obey. All creation is at His beck and call. And yet we alone resist. And He, because of His desire for relationship with us, continues to summon. At the end of the Psalm God says, "sacrifice thank offerings to God, fulfill your vows to the Most High, and call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver you and you will honor me." He summons us----He calls us to come to Him. He begs us to love Him----to desire relationship with Him. He longs for obedient children, for His greatest creation to simply come when He calls.

Reminds me of the song, when He calls for me I will answer,implying we are waiting for the summons rather than avoiding it. Good job.

Hope you enjoyed the workshop. I hate that I missed it this year. It just didn't work. I'm sure you did a great job speaking. Wish we could have met up and visited.

I hope it works out next year...

Blessings

Maybe Dean was speaking of a song that has run through my head this weekend. It is entitled "Here I am Lord" or on reflection I am sure he was thinking of "I'll be somewhere listening". We do run away more than we listen though it seems at times.

God's favorite, Paublo
ps. it was great time wasn't it.

You did a great job. I loved seeing the tears in my friends eye's when she told you she appreciated what you said. You mean a lot too! We had a good laugh, didn't we?
