ON EAGLES’ WINGS

Today’s Reading: Exodus 18-19

This photo was taken in Caesarea Philippi, also known as Banias. The water originates from Mount Herman then flows into underground springs. It then makes its way down to the Galilee, into the Jordan River and then eventually, the Dead Sea. The water provided life to ancient Israel and still does today for modern Israel.

Key Verse: Exodus 19:4

You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself.

 

Organization is vital to success. Moses’ father-in-law, Jethro, suggested a type of organization that proved to work well. Israel used this for many years. God blessed this structure and used it for His glory. Now, as Israel has put their house in order, God is ready to reveal Himself further to them. God spoke to all the people, and the people responded with this commitment, “All that the Lord has spoken we will do” (19:8). Many times Israel failed, but there were periods when they kept their word to God. The message is that in spite of failure, don’t give up. God dealt with the Egyptians, and from available records, Egypt was led by their Pharaoh into a period where they turned from many gods to the worship of one God. God will bear His people “on eagles’ wings” to bring us to Himself.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Lord God, thank You for sound advice such as Jethro gave Moses. Please send such a counsellor to me and to all who pray with me today. Grant all of us an ability to organize ourselves in such a way that Your purposes will all be fulfilled. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen!

100 PERSONAL WORDS:

When Israel was established once again as a state in 1948, Jews immigrated from Yemen in the Arabian peninsula. They saw the airplanes that came to carry them as God bearing them up on eagles’ wings. In recent years, the Jews from Ethiopia, carried by air to Israel, believed the same. I am totally convinced that God, Who delivered His people from Egypt, eventually establishing a state for them, has done it again in my lifetime. I was 12 years old when it happened. I remember the headlines in the Ottawa Citizen newspaper. I saw the newsreels at a Saturday afternoon cowboy movie with Roy Rogers and Dale Evans. I read a book in the 1950’s by William L. Hull from London, Ontario, which documented the miracles involved in this unprecedented event (I saw an old copy of this book for sale on amazon here. It’s called, The Fall and Rise of Israel). For the first time in history, an ancient people were re-established in their own land, and an ancient language was re-born. God has not forgotten His promises.

Yours for all God’s purposes to be fulfilled,

David

  2. Elizabeth May (of the Green Party) is to make an announcement today as to her future with the party. The party has elected to support sanctions against Israel and she is withholding her decision to go with that. We need to pray for her.

  3. I read the book “The Fall and Rise of Israel” by Mr. Hull. Such a great read!
    I’m praying 100 Huntley St. programming and other works receives the funding they need to continue its profound blessings. God will provide.
    Love the waterfalls pic. Can’t believe the water that comes out of mountains. I always thought mountains looked dry and barren and couldn’t hold much water if any. How wonderful they are so often a source for thirsty souls.

  4. Agree in prayer for the funding of 100 Huntley St. Yes we need to pray for Elizabeth May and pray she will make the right decision. Would you also pray for a 15 year old girl from the West who is in the Children’s Hospital in Toronto with a great breakdown of health, the last thing her heart aorta erupting and had to receive an artificial one. She is a fighter and there is faith evident in the family. God bless you.

    • I’m agreeing with the above prayer, in particular for the Lord’s intervention for the 15 year girl…I pray Lord “come with healing in Your Wings”. In Your Name Jesus I pray, Amen!!!

    • Lord, we release Your healing Spirit to this young girl. Give the doctors wisdom and skill and guide their every decision. May Your Perfect Will be done in this situation. In Jesus Name. Amen.

  5. I was planning to send in a cheque for a 80 year=$80 donation, David, but did it over the phone via my card, just now. It was so convenient. I encourage all blog partners to send your support in the same way. It surely makes a difference as we continue to spread God’s message and love through the blog, prayer lines, 100 Huntley Street and Crossroads websites. Thank you David for all you do!

  6. I too have made my donation via telephone and agree that the 100Huntley.ca and YesTV financial need and all the requirements be fulfilled just in time…”God’s perfect time”!!! So the beginning of the year have a debt-free beginning!!

  8. Thank you Irene and Doreen for your prayers. It is a miracle that this girl is alive as she was on a mechanical heart for a while. I pray she will come through as a great witness for the Lord Jesus Christ. I’m sure she will appreciate all these prayers. Yes may the Lord meet all the needs of this ministry of 100 Huntley Street which is making a huge impact.

  9. Our Heavenly Father please heal a 15 year old girl who’s health has been compromised. You who is the great Physician, who can turn any circumstance from impossible to possible. Praying for total healing. In Jesus mighty name Amen and Amen.
