How Can We Sing In A Strange Land?

Psalm 137:2-4 (KJV) We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof. For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion. How shall we sing the LORD’S song in a strange land?

Whining And Complaining Is Not The Precedent

Philippians 2:14 (KJV) Do all things without murmurings and disputings.

Throughout this second chapter of Philippians, via the Apostle Paul, God gave us a pattern.  The crux of the matter is that we are to do all things without complaining despite any circumstance we find ourselves standing.  Whoa, this might seem challenging, or in humanistic thinking, near impossible to accomplish.

However, one must consider is that a child of God can do anything inside ...

The Underpinning of Idolatry

Colossians 3:5-6 (KJB) Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: 6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience.

These verses tell us about the roots of idolatry at work in this world.  These world based things are often worshipped over and above cherishing God.  Rather than allowing God’s peace rule and rein in their hearts, many people choose to serve and savor the stuff ...

He Ruleth Over All

Psalm 103:19 (KJB) The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.

Imagine anywhere a man goes, whether it be on this earth or in eternity, God rules.

It can sincerely be stated that every problem on this earth stems from not understanding who God is and what He can and will do in us and through us.  All too often ...

By Revelation

Ephesians 3:3-4 (KJB) How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, 4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)
