Psalm 50:7-11

September 12, 2013

“Hear, O My people, and I will speak, O Israel, and I will testify against you; I am God, your God! (Psalm 50:7)
      LORD, please help us to hear your testimony against us and repent.

I will not rebuke you for your sacrifices or your burnt offerings, which are continually before me. (Psalm 50:8 )
      Jesus, help us offer ourselves to you each day.

I will not take a bull from your house, nor goats out of your folds. (Psalm 50:9)
      Father, there is nothing we can give you except what you have already given to us. Help us to give generously of your own.

For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills. (Psalm 50:10)
      LORD, it’s stime to sell off some of your cattle and provide for the poor in the land.

I know all the birds of the mountains, and the wild beasts of the field are mine. “If I were hungry, I would not tell you; for the world is mine, and all its fullness. (Psalm 50:11-12)
      Father, everything belongs to you. We are made in your own image — help us daily give ourselves to you.

A word received: Ask my people to pray for discernment.

A word received: You are in my hands — there is no safer place.

Subject: Rwanda Team Latest, Posted by Miriam on Facebook earlier
      Storm brewing again in Rwanda and it’s not me! Calm of a sort reigns in my wee spot in spite of the dreaded packing – mind, not as bad as packing to come here. Some more visits today – tough – and some tough decisions to make tonight as to how to help. Gloria lives in what is a building site – ironically in what there is of a part built house for someone a lot wealthier than she is. She is a Rwan…dan genocide survivor with some of the worst visible scars of that I’ve ever seen. She has 2 children, no real means of making a living and yet she comes to the church with a bunch of other women to clean as a service to God. We gave the Sewing Center women and the salon girls their lunch and enjoyed their all singing all dancing thank you! Another day of mixed emotions but another day of God mightily at work. Can’t wait to get home now – though sad to leave – to share the works of our great big God! Tomorrow is tying up of loose ends, shopping, de-briefing, packing and flying out. Pray for no storms around 8.20 pm our time! Much as I don’t like to leave I don’t want to get stranded by storm. Thank you!

Honduras presidential election–None of the Above

September 12, 2013

From The Christian Science Monitor: There are four major candidates in the November presidential election–Xiomara Castro, Salvador Nasralla, Juan Orlando Hernandez, and Mauricio Villeda. Two polls have also listed None of the Above as an option.

Who’s in the lead? None of the Above.

And None of the Above is gaining ground steadily: from 19% in February to 26% in April and over 30% in July. . . .

And watch out for None of the Above. While she can’t be inaugurated president, whoever does end up being sworn in will face a real governing challenge with almost a third of the electorate so disconnected from the options offered.

2 Chronicles 20:5-15 (NIV)
5 Then Jehoshaphat stood up in the assembly of Judah and Jerusalem at the temple of the Lord in the front of the new courtyard 6 and said:

“Lord, the God of our ancestors, are you not the God who is in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. Power and might are in your hand, and no one can withstand you. 7 Our God, did you not drive out the inhabitants of this land before your people Israel and give it forever to the descendants of Abraham your friend? 8 They have lived in it and have built in it a sanctuary for your Name, saying, 9 ‘If calamity comes upon us, whether the sword of judgment, or plague or famine, we will stand in your presence before this temple that bears your Name and will cry out to you in our distress, and you will hear us and save us.’ . . . .

13 All the men of Judah, with their wives and children and little ones, stood there before the Lord.

14 Then the Spirit of the Lord came on Jahaziel . . . as he stood in the assembly.

15 He said: “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the Lord says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s.

O Father in heaven,
This election is Yours. Would that the people of Honduras stand in Your presence. Would that they cry out to You in their distress. Would that You hear and save them.
The Honduran election season is in Your hands. You are their refuge. Keep them free from any traps. Into Your hands we commit this election. Deliver them, faithful God. Deliver them from the hands of their enemies. Let your face shine on your servant nation Honduras. Save them in your unfailing love. Let them not be put to shame, Lord, for they have cried out to you; but let the wicked be put to shame and be silent. Amen.
Psalm 31
