THEME: ANALOGY OF SPARROWS
Hosea 11:11 NIV
“They will come from Egypt, trembling like sparrows, from Assyria, fluttering like doves. I will settle them in their homes,” declares the Lord.”
-The sparrow here symbolizes swiftness of return and the sure action by the Lord to settle His beloved. The sparrow and dove have this in common, that they are very timorous, and tremble at any noise, and fearful of everything that disturbs them, and therefore make all the haste and speed they can to get out of the way. Though, it may be, these figures may only signify, as the weak and impotent state of the Jews, considered in themselves at that time, so the quick speed and haste they shall make to their own land. Our God is slow to anger, and is loth to abandon a people to utter ruin, who have been called by His name. Jesus calls us when we are weak to cast our burdens unto Him for He cares for us, and He will never let the righteous be shaken (Psalms 55:22).
You are Holy Lord, You are Righteous, You are awesome in majesty and power. Holy holy holy are You Lord God Almighty, Who was; Who is and Who is to come. May You make us holy dear Jesus. May You make us righteous Abba Father. May You heal all our wounds, be it physical, psychological, financial, economic, social, spititual and make us whole precious Holy Spirit. We submit all our cares and burdens unto You for You are our Father, our all in all, and You care for us. You will never let the righteous be shaken, we bless Your holy name.We come to You Jesus in our burdens that You may give us rest. Your yoke is easy and Your burden is light, may You grant us rest in every difficult situation that we are going through. May You heal all those who are sick and suffering among us dear Jesus. May You deliver all the street children and give them a better life as they pursue their purposes. You are our loving God and none can be likened to You. As You delivered the Israelites from slavery in Egypt, may You make a way for us to prosper and succeed in everything that we do and plan to achieve. May You make a way for us in the mountains and part the Red sea for us to achieve all that You have called us to do. Thank You Jehovah for this far that You have brought us and the far that You are taking us. We love You Lord and bless Your name. In Jesus name we pray. Amen
