I keep my prayer, “More of you God, and less of me until I reach over there.” But if you’re like me swinging across those monkey bars and plummeting to the ground with your shoes of iron and brass, this message is for you.
Turn with me if you will to Deuteronomy 33:27. That was all background to get to here. Now I have to tell you while you’re turning and spinning, I am the most blessed person because those messages, what we’ve called Nitro Pill messages, I read them, I listen to them and it’s daily food for me. What I love about the Bible, the Bible is like a spring or well. If your soul’s thirsty it never runs dry; it’s always there to replenish and refresh.
I’ve put the King James text on the board. Let’s read what it says: “The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them. Israel then shall dwell in safety alone.” The French translation reads C’est une retraite que Le Dieu qui est de tout tem(p)s, it’s ‘a retreat that the God who is of all times,’ et que d’être sous les bras, ‘and to be underneath His arms,’ eternel car il a chassé de devant toi, ‘He’s chased away from before you your enemies,’ tes ennemis, et il a dit extermine, I’m sure everybody can read that. You don’t have to read French to know what that says, ‘exterminate,’ ‘exterminator,’ like terminator; extermine. Israel donc habitera seul surement, ‘Israel will live alone surely.’
