Love Notes

Based on Daniel 3-4, Psalm 136:1-9, 2 Peter 1:1-21.

O GOD, we are the Nation Nebuchanezzar, convinced that we ourselves built this great country and worshipping idols and lesser gods, thinking ourselves to be goodly and godly, which we are not. You say You will chop down this tree and strip its leaves and let us graze on the grass of the earth until seven times pass over us. Your decree is in order that we the living may know that You are GOD Most High and it is You who rules and not we ourselves.
We will suffer seven times until we know that You rule and that You give to whomever You choose.

Nevertheless, You will leave the stump and the roots to be returned after we come to know that heaven rules; that You are GOD indeed; that You are God Most High. Thus, at the end of our affliction, the king will lift his eyes to heaven to bless You, the Most High God, for Your dominion is everlasting and You kingdom is foreverr. All the inhabitants of the earth are as nothing except to honor the King of heaven, all of whose works are truth and justice. And those who walk in pride, You are able to put down.

Yet Your mercy endures forever, and those who have obtained faith in You by the righteousness of Christ have escaped the corruption that is in the world. We watchers are Your holy ones, diligent to make Your calling sure sO that we are established in the present truth as long as we are in these earthly tents. For we are ot following fables but are eyewitnesses of Your majesty. We heard Your voice and met with You on the holy mountain. Thus we know that the arm of flesh is futile.

And so we center on You, O GOD Most High, first and foremost, daly crawling into Your Womb of the Morning to hear Your prophetic Word confirmed. And we heed it as a Light that shines in a dark place until the Day dawns and the Morning Star rises. These are the days of Daniel, O LORD. And we, like he and his brethren, will worship You alone who is Most High, both now and forever, and no matter what.
