God continues to give us encouragement as we wait on HIM to do what He is planning with the Daraja choir. Each week, it seems God gives one of us an insight as we wait. This week, it is from Keri Whitehurst (a summer intern who was dismissed 2 weeks ago to go home when the Summer Tour was cancelled). We rejoice in all that God is showing us and pray that this encourages your heart.
Psalm 33: 1-11 “Let the godly sing with joy to the Lord, for it is fitting to praise him. Praise the Lord with melodies on the lyre; make music for Him on the ten-stringed harp. Sing new songs of praise to Him; play skillfully on the harp and sing with joy. For the word of the Lord holds true, and EVERYTHING HE DOES IT WORTHY OF OUR TRUST. He loves whatever is just and good, and His unfailing love fills the earth. The Lord merely spoke, and the heavens were created. He breathed the word, and all the stars were born. He gave the sea its boundaries and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs. Let everyone in the world fear the Lord, and let everyone stand in awe of Him. For when he spoke, the world began! It appeared at His command. The Lord shatters the plans of the nations and thwarts all their schemes. But the Lord’s plans stand firm forever; His intentions can never be shaken”
I love everything about this passage of scripture. from the beginning, it instructs us to worship and praise God intentionally because He is worthy of our praise. Not only is He worthy of our praise, everything He does is worthy of our trust. Summer tour being cancelled is worthy of our trust, whatever happens for fall and spring tour is worthy of our trust, whatever is happening with the kids is worthy of our trust.
I think this verse really hit home to me. I’ve not been trusting what’s going on with Daraja, I’ve been questioning God and trying to figure out what He’s trying to do. but HE IS WORTHY OF OUR TRUST.
I love what the verse says next, He merely spoke and created the heavens, He breathed the word and all the stars were born. Astronomers estimate there are about 100 thousand million stars in the Milky Way alone. Outside that, there are millions upon millions of other galaxies…and God breathed the word and the stars were there. Our God is a great God! How could we ever doubt the God who breathed life into millions and billions of stars and gave the seas their boundaries?
God has plans for Daraja and His plans are firm and won’t be shaken. everything He does with Daraja is worthy of our praise, our trust, and our awe, even if we don’t understand it. The God who placed billions of stars in the sky with His words has plans for Daraja that our human minds can’t comprehend…this is something to be excited about!
love y’all! – Keri
