Soul Snack 96/13 ... Raucous Love!
The restricting love of Jesus seeks to contain your passions, douse your indulgences and hem you in. His fiery fence of righteousness is your safe boundary.
Jesus has no desire to injure or harm you. His love is to renew your mind, tug your hands, own your heart BUT most importantly - keep you safe!
Jesus is no Pharisee or party-pooper - His righteousness is your life-map. He is deadly passionate about this for YOU.
When your passions test your holy intentions and sin promises so much, first ask yourself this one brief question: who is more likely to hurt me, me or Jesus?
Even after your passions for this world have claimed you (or just maybe the desired passion of another has eluded you), a single passion remains that is as powerful as eternity is long... and it STILL belongs to you.
The raucous and forgiving love of Christ will always drown the bellow of temptation and the din of condemnation for any who will stop, kneel and listen.
Kneel today for His love is merely a prayer away.
This is how God showed his love among us: he sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. (1 Jn 4:9)

Soul Snack 95/13 ... Ruling God?
How different are God's ways from ours. He employed Pharoah's own daughter to succour the infant Moses, and a Balaam to utter one of His most remarkable prophecies. He used the jaw-bone of an ass in the hand of Samson to slay the Philistines, and a sling and stone to vanquish their champion.#
God engaged ravens to sustain Elijah and prophesied through hirsute desert dwellers.
He counselled through the mouth of an ass and spoke from a non-burning, burning bush.
Heaven gave birth through a virgin and also severed the cords of death.
My thoughts, my mind, my opinions or my study can never be sufficient to explain what is beyond the divine veil for...
The Lord is a law unto Himself.
If to question God is to provoke rebuke; to challenge God is to solicit destruction.
Not one can boast as a disciple until they obediently confess; God rules - I don't!
The Lord does whatever pleases him,
in the heavens and on the earth,
in the seas and all their depths. (Ps 135:6)
