05 February: Unexplained Death

If you have ever wondered ‘why?’ in the most perplexing events ever faced, today’s chapter records a national phenomenon involving wide-spread unexplained deaths…

When our only son died and no medical reason could be found, the coroner lodged his death as “Unknown Natural Causes”. His life just stopped, though nothing mechanical was wrong with the ‘physical machine’ that made up our boy. Gen50bIn this same way, HIStory has recorded an event in Ancient Egypt where every first-born male (human or cattle) stopped working. [v4-5] With Pharaoh in direct conflict with The Lord, the Giver of Life, it was as if the Creator took one step backwards. The problem with that one simple move, was that the LIFE that He gives also withdrew with Him. The natural result: cessation of life.

So, it seems from my own experience, that it’s futile for human images of God to enter into direct conflict with their Maker. For one thing, it would mean that we’re in conflict with the One we’re reflecting.[a] If I come into direct conflict with my Maker, it’s time for me to retreat! Not because He is a ‘sore loser’, but because He has plans for me and for the world around me and His plans are bigger than me. I may be outmatched and out of my depth in what at times can feel like the fight of my life, but I know it’s not crazy to believe in Him…

   1.   Praise: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your Name. Your Kingdom come! Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven …”

When I look at my needs, Father God, help me to rejoice in hard times, knowing that testing brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint because Your Love has been poured out in my heart through Your Holy Spirit who has been given to me. [Romans 5:3-5]

   3.   Admit: “…Forgive us of our sin as we forgive those who sin against us…”

As I go about my day, help me not to be destroyed for lack of knowledge. I admit to rejecting knowledge and forgetting the law of God. But Father, use me again as Your ambassador and, in Grace, remember my children. [Hosea 4:6]

   4.   Protect: “…Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.”

Help me, Lord, to remember that the breath of the ruthless is like a rain storm against a wall. But You, on the other hand, Father God, are a defence for the helpless, a protection for the needy in distress, a refuge from the storm, and shade from the heat. [Isaiah 25:4]

“For Yours Lord is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory now and forever. Amen!”

When Jesus was questioned, tested, tricked, or in His hour of great need, He always spoke things that were previously written in God’s Word.[d] That so, then following these memory verses from ten topics will help you learn 52 verses from the bible in a year!
