A Thousand for One

A thousand piercing needles poking, stabbing, more

A thousand years of hunger leaving lonely longings

A thousand pounds of pressure coming on so strongly

A thousand starless nights

A thousand blinding lights

(breathe, just breathe)

A thousand warriors wielding blades that slash the darkness

A thousand prayers released by great angelic masses

(persevere)

A thousand years of reigning with the King of kings.

Psalm 91

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”

Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,  nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.

Revelation 20:4-6

4Then I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand; and they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. 5The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were completed. This is the first resurrection. 6Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years.

2 Peter 3:8 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.

The Stately Palm

The Palmpalm trees, Palm Sunday, Hallelujah

 

From my bedroom window

Between two, white plastered

Houses,

Stands the stately date palm

High above it all—

And down the wall,

Cascading fuchsia bougainvillea

Like a waterfall.

Weathering summer heat and

Winter winds,

The stately palm waves its limbs

Shouting Hallelujahs

To its Maker

The King.

Knowing The Names

This morning in my Bible reading I read the following verse:

“And those who know Your name will put their trust in You,
For You, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.” Psalm 9:10 (NASB)

I asked myself these questions:Names-of-God
What does it mean to know God’s name?

**********
Which names of God?

**********
Do I trust all of who God is or do I only trust some of His names?

**********

In the past I have done studies on the names of God. I often see the names as I read the Bible. And, in times of need, I often pray to God using some of His various names. But trusting His name (each of His names) is much more than just knowing them.

Which of God’s names do you need to trust today?
