GOD’S WORD FOR JULY 23
GOD’S WORD FOR JULY 23 ~ ~ Isaiah 55:9
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.”
Gerbils are those friendly, furry little rodents that many children keep as pets. Gerbils are social animals. They value communication very highly. Researchers have found that those gerbils in a given community that can communicate most clearly have the highest social status.
For a long time, researchers were confused about the sounds gerbils make because they were only hearing a small part of the communication. This is because our human ears hear sounds that go up to about 20,000 cycles per second. However, gerbils do most of their talking at as high as 32,000 cycles per second. Their talk is too high-pitched for us to hear.
Tape recordings of these ultra-high-frequency sounds have been played back at slower speeds. They reveal that most gerbil communication involves different kinds of whistles. These whistles are different types of speech, depending upon the purpose of the communication.
Communication is the gift of a loving Creator, both for his creatures, and for His children. Of course, our communication with Him is very important for our relationship with Him. He has made that available to us through His written Word, and through His Spirit. What a wonderful gift that the Almighty Creator and King of Kings would want to communicate with His creation!!!!!
The Bible says that we are to sing to the Lord, well over a hundred times. We are to talk to Him, plead with Him, praise Him, thank Him. He even knows our silent prayers, sighs and tears.
“For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy,
Now I will arise,” says the Lord;
“I will set him in the safety for which he yearns.” Psalm 12:5
He sings over us too!
The prophet Zephaniah tells us this in 3:17 ~ ~ “The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”
When we communicate from our hearts to Him, and submit our lives to His care for this world and salvation, we will be able to hear His voice in our spirits, for love, courage, strength, peace, and everything we need.
He’s speaking to us all the time. We need to focus on Him to discern it.
He’s at the door——–
