A Time to be Born

Two more babies will soon be born into our family. We’re praying about their births.

Here’s why: “The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth” (Psalm 29:9). If what God says influences deer to go into labor, His voice can certainly influence a pregnant mom!

Job’s prayer shows God’s sovereignty over birth: “Why did you bring me out of the womb?” (Job 10:18).

A Reason to Praise

I paused as we read Psalm 74:23: “The uproar of those who rise against Thee ascends continually.” I thought, “That’s awful. God deserves praise. Not insult.”

Later we sang, “Crown Him with many crowns, the Lamb upon His throne; Hark! How the heavenly anthem drowns all music but its own!*

May that be so!
