AM Psalm 18:1-20; PM Psalm 18:21-50
1 Thess. 3:1-13;
Paused at those verses listed below from today’s advent scripture readings – most of which were familiar and in isolation breathe one thought into me and woven together, suggest another.
Psalm 18: 19 He brought me out into a broad place;
he delivered me, because he delighted in me.
Isaiah 2: 17 The haughtiness of people shall be humbled,
and the pride of everyone shall be brought low;
Luke 20: 38Now he is God not of the dead, but of the living; for to him all of them are alive.’
Praise Him for bringing me – all of us – into the broad place where any boundaries we encounter we know not to be of our abba Father, but of the haughtiness and pride of our own selves.
The broad place is God’s living, breathing place for us and it is here.
