this morning’s talk was so gooddd. it’s just amazing to see the fulfilment of all the biblical prophecies over israel as it is today, how historical/ biblical validity of the land became legal validity, how God’s hand was so evident in all the wars israel has ever fought, resulting in her victory in every one of them. this nation is the mighty testimony of our God - the God of impossibility, whose strength is made perfect in our weaknesses. also something that wrapped itself around my heart was the part about ezer kenegdo, first mentioned in genesis 2 when God said “it is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable (ezer kenegdo) for him.” and how this word was subsequently mentioned 16 other times in the bible when it related to God being the ezer kenegdo for israel, that is, a strong military force, source of strength and courage. kenegdo means behind and in front of, corresponding to and opposite. putting this all into context, a woman is to be a man’s greatest support when he is walking right with God, and greatest opposition when he is being unrighteous. I hope to be that some day :)
In the morning when I wake,
And the sun is coming through
Oh, you fill my lungs with sweetness!
And you fill my head with you.
So tired and headachey today. need some nice icey cold drink and a warm hug :(
