Psalm 46:10

Psalm 46:10 - New International Version (NIV)
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth.”
Jesus has a plan for your life, one unique to you.
His deepest desire is to reveal to you how much he loves you and to shower you with blessings.
However, you must seek to know him, our Lord and Savior.
Trust Him with your life.
Honor Him with your words and actions.
He will reveal a wonderful life to you, His child.
If you don't know Jesus yet, take time now to review the Gospel in a Nutshell verbiage in the right column of this web site.
Pray to the Lord and tell him that you are sorry for being a sinner and that you want to be made new. Tell him that you understand that God sent Jesus to die on a cross for the world's sin and that you want to know the wonderful God that could care enough to make that sacrifice for us. 
Read the Holy Bible and attend a Bible based Christian church.
Your life will be changed forever!

Talking Stars: The Star of Bethlehem and The Gift of Acabar


Last month our church group watched the video featured on this web site -

I highly recommend it! The web site features some of Rick Larson’s research.  

Here is the excerpt where he discusses stars and Psalm 19 :

"Several striking passages on this issue were written by David, son of Jesse. David is a towering Biblical figure. A fierce warrior, a revered king who was himself deeply reverent. Highly intelligent and wonderfully poetic, he wrote much of the Book of Psalms and some of the most beautiful passages of scripture. Among these is Psalm 19, where David extols God’s handiwork in the stars. But he doesn’t only extol, he tells us that the stars bear a message.

Watch his choice of verbs [emphasis added]:
1 …The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. 2 Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. 3 There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. 4 Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world…— Psalm 19:1–4
David chose verb after verb which says that the stars communicate. An intriguing passage. But isn’t it just poetry? Isn’t David just speaking with a poet’s elegant symbolism?
The apostle Paul didn’t think so."

The reason this is magnificent and significant to me is that I had just finished reading a book by Og Mandino called "The Gift of Acabar". It mentioned that stars talk too.
I never considered that before now... but it sure makes sense that all things created by our Lord and Savior would be able to communicate in order to give God the glory he deserves. Hallelujah!!!

Wishing you peace and joy this day! <>< Laura
