I Will Raise Them

 

Behold I will raise
you up

out of the place
which you’ve been sold

for I am your
shelter and strength

the Lord your God
who never lets go.

**********

You are with me and raise me up from where I don’t belong.

**********

“Also the people of Judah and the people of Jerusalem you have sold to the Greeks, that you may remove them far from their borders.”

“Behold, I will raise them out of the place to which you have sold them.”

“But the LORD will be a shelter for His people,
And the strength of the children of Israel.”

Joel 3:6,7,16 NKJV

Where Lots Fall

“The lot fell to the children of Joseph, from the Jordan, by Jericho, to the waters of Jericho on the east, to the wilderness that goes up from Jericho through the mountains to Bethel, (Joshua 16:1)
then went out from Bethel to Luz, passed along to the border of the Archites at Ataroth, (Joshua 16:2)
and went down westward to the boundary of the Japhletites, as far as the boundary of Lower Beth Horon to Gezer, and it ended at the sea. (Joshua 16:3)
So the children of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim, took their inheritance.” (Joshua 16:4)

There is something about the way the borders are described that speaks to me of much love, thought and care.

Oh Lord, help us to understand our own boundaries and borders today. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Boundaries and Borders

The expectations are high
to do this, to go there

in fear of disappointing
we might cross out of where

God has set a safe place
around our hearts’ design

with room to thrive and grow
into all He has in mind.
