DailyTheocentrism: What man cannot do-What is crooked cannot be straightened and what is lacking cannot be counted.Ecc 1:15

I think too of and . . .

We are “crooked souls tryin’ to stay up straight” and it’s like chasing the wind.

May we depend . . .

May we bend . . .

May we end our striving and know that He is God.

Every valley shall be filled,
and every mountain and hill shall be made low,
and the crooked shall become straight,
and the rough places shall become level ways, (ESV)

10 and said, “You son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, full of all deceit and villainy, will you not stop making crooked the straight paths of the Lord? (ESV)

DailyTheocentrism:We can only give out of what we are;this is why God’s eternity is key for us.

We can only give out of what we are; this is why God’s eternity is key for us. Without it He could not offer eternal life. His offer of it must be affirmed by His ability to provide it. Since we cannot categorically provide something beyond us, we cannot give unless we have. It is an old drummer thing that I have taught a’many’a student: “Son, if you ain’t got the rhythm in you, you ain’t gettin’ it out” It’s a bit like that – only different.

Now think about what God is . . .

Wisdom Literature Notes: Ecclesiastes

I want to thank Dr. Randall McKinion for work of his that I used for a few of these points.

Ecclesiastes

Post to Twitter

We want Shepherds like Him, but not Him . . .

Throughout the Old Testament, the most common themes are:

1. God is Sovereign and our provision and joy in life

2. Mankind wants to condescend Him and pervert His nature to be like us . . . recognizable and iconic

3. God alone is faithful

4. Mankind cannot be faithful

One of the most telling and horrifying  – even defining passages of the Old Testament is

The Lord said to Samuel, “Listen to the voice of the people in regard to all that they say to you, for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me from being king over them. NAU1 Sa 8:7

The deception that our mother, Eve, fell for still rings in our ears – go your own way. We want a king like us, for us, from us . . . the heart of idolatry is always self-worship.

I am indebted to some brothers for continually introducing me to more edifying music. Andrew Peterson is one of those musicians. This song is very enlightening. I hope you see it that way, too.

And the Lord said to Samuel, “Obey the voice of the people in all that they say to you, for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected me from being king over them. (ESV)
