Remeber this song? “Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless His holy name?”
ALL y’all, ALL! Just what does that mean. Let us be clinical for a second; organs, tissue etc. Let us be ‘p’lsychological’ for a second brain, feelings, emotions…Can we stop here? Who are you? What are you? A shell for the spiritual essence that will exist on? In so many facets of what exists after our existence here ‘currently’ there are opposing views.
Do we have minds that can ‘reason’? Emotions we utilize to feel? There are so many creatures, why haven’t they evolved into higher being s than us? The answer exists no other place than what I refer to frequently. We were made in His image. Yes there are similarities, but Man is different. Have we not evolved? There is history of animals that go back millions of years. In The Scriptue. These things in the universe were created first, there is proof. Why are some extinct? We may ask, practice males perfect. Yet, when it came to man, creatures in creation did not matter. Why don’t I create Man in MY image, and it was. But, it was not as simple as that, He made you and I into mirror images of Himself.
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the Earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
So God created man in HIS own image, in the image of God created He man; male and female created He them.
After doing so, God blessed them, and God said unto Man, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the Earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the Earth. Genesis 1:26-28
This in The Word is referred to time and time again.
To address ‘evolutionists’ at this juncture, I throw up my hands in an ability to understand why dinosaurs do not rule man, or any animal life that age wise have been times before human life.
In all written (or in the case of an inability to write- drawn, sketched or painted) history, it comes to light that perhaps,we were created as we are. It is a long shot! I understand…
And we go on:
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; Who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; Who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed. So, praise HIM!!!
We at times hear the words to songs and so nor understand the substance in the words. My challenge is start listening to the words. Have The LORD open the eye of your understanding and be blessed IJN
