I keep hearing for days a reminder, a caution sort of.
We are to remember what we know as they did in times of old.
As HE instructed them TO DO, we are to build altars of remembrance.
They were told to build altars so they could/would remember what the LORD had done at that place.
So also are we to have "altars" of rememberance.
Except ours are deep within our hearts.
We are to remember what he has done FOR us.
We are to remember what he had already brought us THROUGH.
Then when "things" seem to come against us, or when things are coming against us, we can remember what HE has done in the past.
We can rest in the assurance that not only is He with us, ALL that He does, even ALL that He allows
is for our GOOD
ALL is done or allowed from within the parameters of his LOVE for us.
“Build for me an altar made of earth, and offer your sacrifices to me—your burnt offerings and peace offerings, your sheep and goats, and your cattle. Build my altar wherever I cause my name to be remembered, and I will come to you and bless you.
This took place in Ex 20 just after he gave them the ten commandments. From what I have read, I understand that GOD told them to build altars of remembrance to the great things he, had done for them.
We are to offer to him our sacrifice, and what is that?
The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit.You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God.
Therefore, let us offer through Jesus a continual sacrifice of praise to God, proclaiming our allegiance to his name.
fill the spaces with your love.
