I am so excited to start the book of Hebrews. The first chapter was so encouraging to my heart already that I actually had to stop myself from reading on to the next chapter because I want to savor it.

I think Hebrews 1:9 is highly inspiring to me to live a holy life (which at times seems to me to be an impossibility) but of Jesus it says that He doesn't 'just do' righteousness and justice but Jesus LOVES JUSTICE AND HE HATES EVIL. And it's because of his proper motivation that 'therefore, O God, your God has anointed you, pouring out the oil of joy on you more than on anyone else." I want to get to that place where I will love to pursue righteous and justice, and that I will hate evil as the 'natural default' of my life as opposed to having to be righteous because that's my duty and that's required, yada yada. I guess these verses show that God blesses those who pursue Him for all the right motives.

Thank you for reminding me that I need to wait on the Lord, and seek Him. So often I become impatient with things, but must remember that God will deliver His promises in His time, God bless you :)

Lamentations 3:1-66

As I read today’s passage I had a visual image of Jerusalem crying out the words written by Jeremiah She is the one who has seen it all, the rise of David and the built up city and fortifications of Solomon. It was within her walls that the gold laden Temple was constructed and slowly dismantled as each successive king failed to protect her by not fully walking uprightly before God or else going head long into sin. Jerusalem, the City of Zion, was picked out by God to be the city He dwelt in and built by man to try to reflect His glory, then abandoned by each successive generation.

Yet despite our failure to be faithful to God, God remains faithful to His people.

verses that stood out:
Lam. 3:22-25
" Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. “ The LORD is my portion,” says my soul
“Therefore I hope in Him!” The LORD is good to those who wait for Him, To the soul who seeks Him."

I love Hebrews! Excited to read through it! Hebrews 1 is such a great chapter on the supremacy of Jesus Christ, our Lord..above the angels, equal to God the Father, yet a separate Person, He is God the Son. I love the readings!

to of the Lord be glory for you life

Hebrews is a theologian's playground. There is hardly another New Testament book that ties Old Testament theology and doctrine so clearly to the New Covenant.
