Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable and pleasing in Your sight, O LORD, my [firm, immovable] rock and my Redeemer. (Psa 19:14) As I see it, a ‘Redeemer’ is someone who brings back something that was lost or taken away. Remember this FOREVER, Jesus is our Redeemer. He has been charged with the duty of restoring our rights, and avenging our wrongs. X #health #answeredprayers #grace #worship #loveinaction #kindness #amazinggrace #choices #lovin
Still, it’s what GOD had in mind all along, to crush him with pain.
The plan was that he give himself as an offering for sin so that he’d see life come from it—life, life, and more life. And GOD ’s plan will deeply prosper through him. Out of that terrible travail of soul, he’ll see that it’s worth it and be glad he did it.
Through what he experienced, my righteous one, my servant, will make many “righteous ones,” as he himself carries the burden of their sins. Theref
God, God . . . my God! Why did you dump me miles from nowhere? Doubled up with pain, I call to God all the day long. No answer. Nothing.

Everyone pokes fun at me; they make faces at me, they shake their heads: “Let’s see how GOD handles this one; since God likes him so much, let him help him!” (Psalm 22:1-8) Is this how you feel too? Then let’s read on … … Shout
“So I looked, and there, surrounded by Throne, Animals, and Elders, was a Lamb, slaughtered but standing tall… He (Jesus) came to the One Seated on the Throne and took the scroll from his right hand. The moment he took the scroll, the Four Animals and Twenty-four Elders fell down and worshiped the Lamb. Each had a harp and each had a bowl, a gold bowl filled with incense, the prayers of God’s holy people. And they sang a new song: Worthy! Take the scroll, open its seals. Slai
It’s obvious, of course, that he didn’t go to all this trouble for angels. It was for people like us, children of Abraham. That’s why he had to enter into every detail of human life.

(Heb 2:16). It’s the last sentence that grabbed my attention. Jesus is called before GOD
