now playing: DVD – The Grinch who Stole Christmas

Yo all, sitting here at my parent’s house with Ruth, Mike and a friend’s daughter named Rowena. We just got back from the neighborhood pool and I’m pretty whooped. Had a good time with the Lord this morning. I was struck by a passage I read in Ps. 102:

18 This will be written for the generation to come, That a people yet to be created may praise the LORD.

19 For He looked down from His holy height; From heaven the LORD gazed upon the earth,

20 To hear the groaning of the prisoner, To set free those who were doomed to death,

21 That men may tell of the name of the LORD in Zion And His praise in Jerusalem,

22 When the peoples are gathered together, And the kingdoms, to serve the LORD.

Way back when David wrote that there were a bunch of people groups that had yet to exist. The Marwari people (Ruth’s tribe) was not in existence 3000 years ago. The Anglo-Saxon race as we know it did not exist either. But way back in the day, God foresaw that they would exist and picked people out from them for Himself! What a wonderful thought! Trillions of years before the universe existed He saw these races and picked me and Ruth and tons of others for Himself…good thoughts.

Matthew
