“LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory in the heavens. Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.” Psalm 8:1-2
The above verses were in one of my morning devotions today and when matched with the attached photo the words “Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name” really jumped out at me. I took the photo at the school in Font Baptiste which is high in the mountains of the Arcahaie District. The door to this ‘classroom’ was open probably to coax a cool breeze to lower the temperature inside this small ‘shed’ of a room. What is taking place in this room is reason enough to say “Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name.”
Our awesome Triune God is using your gift to feed these hundreds of students who are daily being fed His Word and a plate of rice and beans and then they will go out into their neighborhood and do His work of driving the vodou priest and his lies from their homes. Our God who gave His only Son for each of us so that we might have our sins forgiven and receive Eternal Life, is using each of us to serve Him in this simple way, in the simple place to wage a war against satan. Beni soit L’Eternal!!! (Praise the Lord!!!)
“Oh Lord, Our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth. Oh Lord, Our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth. The heavens declare Your greatness; the oceans cry out to You. The mountains, they bow down before You so I'll join with the earth and I'll give my praise to You. And I will worship You.”
Dear Heavenly Father, you have called your servants to ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown. Give us faith to go out with good courage, not knowing where we go but only that your hand is leading us and your love supporting us through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen.
May God be with you…Jay
