Psalm 50:5 Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.
Have you ever watched a mom when it is time to ready to leave with her children to head out for a destination? Great care is taken to ensure every child is ready. Diaper bags, bottles, clothing each are packed with care. Then comes the precious moment of gathering; she, with near Olympic ability, swoops down and gathers her offspring. Amazingly she gathers up 2-3 in one motion it seems. Then off they go to their destination safe in their mother’s care.
There is coming a day where our Father will move in fashion similar to the other in our story. Though He, with divine strength and ability, will know when it is the right time to go and gather up His offspring of faith. The Lord will move with beyond Olympic ability to gather us together who are in the faith. What a thrill to know our gathering time may be today! The Lord will gather us to our final destination…our new home.
“It will be worth it all when we see Jesus,
Life’s trials will seem so small when we see Christ.
Once glimpse of His dear face, all sorrows will erase,
So bravely run the race, till we see Christ.”
