I don’t know about you, but I have already composed my “why” list of questions that I will ask immediately after I pass through heaven’s gates. Here are just a few of my questions …
* Who in the world decided that it was okay to place calories in our foods?
* Why couldn’t Captain Kangaroo live forever and still be on television today?
* Why is it impossible to eat Cheetos without the evidence being left on your fingers and lips?
I know that these aren’t probably important to you. But here’s one last question that perhaps you have pondered …
* Why didn’t God put this or a similar disclaimer at the beginning of the Bible? WARNING – This book contains content that is guaranteed to cause uncontrollable outbursts of joy, insupressible displays of excitement, unrestrainable undignified behavior, and boisterous vocalizations not common for the typical church-goer.
I came across one of those disclaimer-worthy comments this past week as I was enjoying my daily time in the Word. Here it is … (Get your dancing shoes on!)
“For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty,
and floods upon the dry ground:
I will pour my spirit upon thy seed,
and my blessing upon thine offspring.”
When I read this verse, I got beside myself with excitement. God said, God said, God said (I’m not typing just to provide exercise for my fingers), God HIMSELF said that MY children and EVERYONE that has a drop of my blood (my heritage) flowing through their veins WILL have His Spirit poured upon them and WILL receive His blessing. This came from the God who cannot lie. (Numbers 23:19). Just typing this is causing me to get excited all over again!
I’ll stop right here and leave the rest of response to you!!! (This would be a good time to release some of that joy and excitement!)
