Gentle Part 1

To celebrate its 22nd anniversary in orbit, the Hubble Space Telescope released a dramatic new image of the star-forming region 30 Doradus, also known as the Tarantula Nebula because its glowing filaments resemble spider legs. A new image from all three of NASA’s Great Observatories–Chandra, Hubble, and Spitzer–has also been created to mark the event. by NASA

Good morning, beloved,

I have a Noah with me studying this morning so we are going to jump right in today. :) He is anxious to get going, although he would like to share a song with you.

You know it right? You are worth more than gold! You are loved by Almighty God! Believe it and know it. I need to hear that today. How about you?

Alright, we find ourselves in Matthew 5:5 Blessed (happy, blithesome, joyous, spiritually prosperous—with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, regardless of their outward conditions) are the meek (the mild, patient, long-suffering), for they shall inherit the earth!

And today we are going to be looking through the Old Testament to mine for treasures to teach us more and more about gentleness. Oh Lord teach us, guide us and may we forever be changed.

Number 12:3 3 Now the man Moses was very meek (gentle, kind, and humble) or above all the men on the face of the earth.  If you have time, do read this chapter. It is short and does help us understand why the Lord titles Moses as very meek. Noah and I chuckled at the self title but remember, as Joshua gently admonished, all Scripture is God-breathed…

To commemorate Hubble Telescope’s 20th Birthday, NASA, along with ESA and M. Livio and the Hubble 20th Anniversary Team (STScI), released several of Hubble’s findings. by NASA

Psalm 22: 26 The poor and afflicted shall eat and be satisfied; they shall praise the Lord—they who [diligently] seek for, inquire of and for Him, and require Him [as their greatest need]. May your hearts be quickened now and forever!

Psalm 69: 32 The humble shall see it and be glad; you who seek God, inquiring for and requiring Him [as your first need], let your hearts revive and live!

Psalm 37:11 But the meek [in the end] shall inherit the earth and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

Psalm 45:4 And in Your majesty ride on triumphantly for the cause of truth, humility, andrighteousness (uprightness and right standing with God); and let Your right hand guide You to tremendous things.

Psalm 76:9 When God arose to [establish] judgment, to save all the meek and oppressed of the earth.Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

Psalm 147:6 The Lord lifts up the humble and downtrodden; He casts the wicked down to the ground.

Zechariah 9:9 Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O Daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King comes to you; He is [uncompromisingly] just and having salvation [triumphant and victorious], patient, meek, lowly, and riding on a donkey, upon a colt, the foal of a donkey.

Seems to be that there might be something to this whole gentle, meek idea, eh? Let’s list it…Is it really that time? Okay…well, maybe I’ll be listing later today!! Or, what if you make a list? Want to include it in the comments section? Come on, you can do it!! :)

Also, in your quiet time today, yes, your quiet, take what you have learned and write a prayer to God. (This part right here is straight out of my Precept Upon Precept Sermon on the Mount study guide..well, actually, I’m teaching straight out of it. Isn’t it wonderful? I love Precepts…)

Pray on, beloved. Pray on…

  1. Nice post! Love the pics -the vastness of God’s universe fascinates me and scares me, all at the same time!

    You are following one of my blogs – The Back Bedroom – which is my “flotsam and jetsam” blog of things I don’t want to put on my “Thinspaces” blog. I think you meant to follow my Thinspaces blog, as that is the one where I write about my Christian faith and finding God in the everyday. The link to that one is

    PS-thanks for the pingback!!
