The Hebrew Mysteries

21 Sep

The Hebrew Mysteries…

In 1967, after 2000 years, the Jewish people regained Jerusalem. In God’s word, Jerusalem – Yerushalayim is called “beautiful.” Rabbis say of the ten measures of beauty bestowed on this world, nine were given to Jerusalem.

Its praises fill much of Scriptures. But if you visit Jerusalem, you’ll find it’s pretty much just a bunch of rocks. Yet, God’s word speaks of it as if it were the most beautiful place in the world. When you’re in love, it doesn’t matter what they look like to you; they’re beautiful.

So it is with God and Jerusalem, and with your life. Look around; you’ll see some very imperfect people. Look at your circumstances; you’ll see lots of problems.

Look at yourself, without God’s grace, you’ll see a sinful wretch. Learn the mystery of Jerusalem, the Beautiful. See your life through the eyes of God’s love and grace.

See your circumstances as blessings, people around you as gifts, your walk victorious, your life something wonderful, and piles of rocks as Jerusalem, the beautiful.

Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness; the Lord will be my light. Micah 7:8

Live today through God’s eyes, see yourself through God’s eyes, and see every situation as a chance to reveal God’s love.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
