MEDITATE MAGNIFICENCE

The magnificence of miracles all around you,

The magnificence of babies being born,

The magnificence of the heavens,

The magnificence of your breath of life,

The magnificence of gifts and talents,

The magnificence of an array of beautiful fruits,

The magnificence of a marvelous and majestic CREATOR,

OH WHAT A LIFE!

ISRAEL

 

 

 

 

 

A LETTER TO JACOB, ISRAEL.

 

Dear Israel,

 

You are a man of honor, integrity, and righteousness.  And even though your name was Jacob, it was still a good name because you and God made it so.

You are an amazing chef!  In truth, you are a Master Chef!  I playfully say that your stew got us to this.

Man, you make a delectably delicious stew!  Your stew must have tasted like God’s very own Special Cuisine!  Your brother, Esau, went crazy over that stew; I mean really, to give up a gift that God had given him!  For some stew?   Come on man!

 

Hey, Israel!   We here in the new millennium joke about how Esau was really mad over your leaving, and taking that good stew with you.

Who was he fooling?  He wasn’t mad over his birthright; we all know he cared nothing for that. ( Laugh Out Loud, Israel!)

 

We, here in the 21st century are quite proud of you.  We saw what they did!  But, most importantly, The Ultimate Observer witnessed it all. GOD HIMSELF!

    YES!  AND GOD HIMSELF CHANGED YOUR NAME TO ISRAEL BECAUSE HE KNEW WHO YOU WERE FROM THE VERY BEGINNING!

     We  saw God’s tremendous love for you, and His Hand upon you wherever you went.  We saw how you remained steadfast in your righteousness, integrity, and loyalty, despite being coerced into a bad situation.

 

Because you were an honorable man with a passion for God, you even married Leah, who your untrustworthy uncle, Laban, selected for you.  But, you made the best of it because you are an honorable prince of God.

We know that you could have called foul on Laban, and gotten out of that trap, but you didn’t.  Why?  Because you are an honorable prince of God!

You worked extra long years, and did not count it as hard, because of your love for Rachel. And you are an honorable prince of God.  Come on Israel!  Let’s say it together now.

AN HONORABLE PRINCE OF GOD!!!

 

Live long and prosper, my dear brother! Live long and prosper!

 

FOR.      YOU!      ARE!     ISRAEL!

DAVID

 

 

Dear King David,

 

What an honor to remember such a king as you.  You are always referred to as, ‘a man after God’s own heart.’  Will you tell me what that really means?

 

Yes.  We here in the 21st century have our own theory about it.  Some say you are called that because of your awesome psalms and praises to ADONAI. Especially when you dance out of your clothes in Glory, Honor, and Praises to God. That is amazing!

Others say you were a man after GOD’s own heart  because you were so quick to repent when the prophet Nathan told you of your sin with Bathsheba.  King David, what were you thinking?

Well, let’s talk about how you saved the sheep from a lion and the bear, even at such the young age of sixteen. There have been so many movies made about you, but they have failed to capture the awesome King that you are,

I know that if we had sort of a self- analysis of your thoughts about yourself, then we’d be able to make an authentic depiction of the man, the worshiper, and  the great King you are.

Your psalms are off the charts; your warrior skills are fierce, and your position in God is amazing!  Hence, these are only a few of the many accolades that are attributed to you.

And wow! Words are hard to come by when describing how you defeated Goliath.  Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God!  King David, thank you.  We love you!

YOU.
