Trivia:

The correct conclusion to yesterdays question, was that Microsoft's first operating system released was called Windows 1. Way to go everyone, your more tech savvy than me.


In the 80's what was the slang for throwing up? Ralph, Malph, Rip, or Mouth? Make your guess, we'll see if you remember this one. Speaking of bringing it up again, Oh, ho, ha.


Challenge:

Psalm 5:7 "But as for me, I will come unto Your your house in the multitude of Your mercy; In the fear (Awe) of you I will worship toward Your holy temple."


Here the Psalmist bases his confidence on God's faithful covenentual love spoken of in, Exodus 34:6 which tells us this covenant made to Moses, "The Lord passed in front of Moses, calling out, Yahweh! The Lord! The God of compassion and mercy! I am slow to anger and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness."


Here David contrasts his wicked adversaries, and the instant access he enjoyed into God's presence, due to the many (multitude) of God's mercies and gracious care of His covenant ones. David committed to worship facing toward the location that would be this temple that was yet to be built. Presently that building was represented by the tabernacle in his day. (1 Samuel 1:9; 3:3; and 2 Samuel 22:7).


David used the word temple in anticipation of the coming future glorious building; which was to be built by Solomon in the coming days. In the time after David's death, the people of Israel would understand the glory of the temple which represented the Lord's glory. When Solomon completed the temple it became the very center of the Hebrew nation (Jewish) life.


The primary importance today isn't a particular location, but instead His many acts of mercy evidenced by the blessings He has showered on us. We as God's children walk in confidence due to His promise and His very presence in our lives, which is demonstrated by a peace that comes to our lives as we come before Him in praise and prayer.


I heard a country western song yesterday, which spoke of our praising our Lord and His many times of working in our life as, "bragging on God". I must admit that caught Becky and I and its very quaint words. We had never thought of this in these words, but truly that is what we are doing when we speak to our Father, or to others of how He is working in our world.


This thought reminded me of my childhood days when we boys would brag on our dads and how he was stronger than the other boys dad was. I would tell them how my dad was so strong that he lifted up our house and leveled the whole floor. Which he really did but it was with jacks and beams he lifted the house. I remember the neighborhood boys eyes were filled with amazement by my tales. They insisted on coming to my house for proof, because when we moved there you could put a marble down in the living room and it would roll to the kitchen’s back door. After completing the leveling of the house, when you put the marble down it stayed at the front door.


SO GO WITH GOD for He always fulfills His promises to us His children.
