Of Multitudes

“Then some came and told Jehoshaphat, saying, ‘A great multitude is coming against you from beyond the sea, from Syria; and they are in Hazazon Tamar (which is En Gedi)’. ” 2 Chronicles 20:2

“And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the LORD, and proclaim a fast throughout all Judah.”  2 Chronicles 20:3

A multitude of things can go wrong in a day.

Lord, we thank You that we don’t have to be afraid of whatever comes against us.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Salvation Coming

They did not know what
the multitudes would do
but they knew
what God had done

they could not control
Ammon’s hand
but could be held
in the Holy One’s

as they gathered to seek Him
to fast, to pray
to humbly worship
they heard Him say

do not fear
or be dismayed
but stand still and watch
your Salvation come today.

Telling Jesus . . .what to do?

“When the day began to wear away, the twelve came and said to Him, ‘Send the multitudes away . . .'” Luke 9:12

Sometimes I do just what the disciples did . . .tell Jesus what to do. Gulp.

Thank You, Lord, for reminding me to want what You want, for Your will to be done in me and in this place today. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Do What You Want

I see a problem
and just want it fixed

and without much thought
tell You to do it quick

forgetting what You taught me
about praying for Your will

resting in Your promises
trusting You more still.

Moved With Compassion

“And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude, and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick.”  Matthew 14:14

In the verses before this, Jesus had left by boat to be alone.  He’d heard John the Baptist had been beheaded.

O Lord, fill me with compassion even when it’s not easy or convenient.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Held There

I long to be alone
– to check out and slip away
but the needs of those around me
– compel me yet to stay
to see them through Your eyes
– doing all that I can
for I, too, am held
– in the Compassionate One’s hand.
