Length of Days - Search for Freedom

Saturday, February 25, 2012


Did you know that you were made to order to God’s specification? He wanted beings with hands to help each other, feet to follow Him and hearts large enough to love the whole world. That is your blueprint.

And, each unit is completely unique. There are no two alike, never have been, never will be. Oh, I know there has been a big buzz about cloning and how the scientists have found a way to make an exact replica of the original individual—two of exactly the same lamb or Larry Long.

 How arrogant can we be? A clone is just a later born twin. The newly born is a completely separate individual. The scientists haven’t created life. They have duplicated the original "order" in body only.

The more amazing thing to me is that we often think we have created God to meets our specifications. We have a made-to-order-God. He asks no more than we are willing to give. He requires us to love only the loveable, and He expects no more than we can dream. We have created him after our own heart. That isn’t a god. That’s our alter-ego!

Oh Beloved, the God of the ages has created us for Himself and we are too egocentric to realize it is He who is the Creator! We would have all that His kingdom has to offer if we could finally get this right! We were made to order for Him! Let us pray:

"Creator God, you are all that is Life and we worship your name. We pray to understand a tiny piece of your kingdom, the corner in which you have placed us. Dear Father God, let this Lent be the season in which we finally get it. You are God and you created us to inherit all that you have for us. It is with great love that you give to your children. Forgive us when we get it all turned around and then inherit only dust, blown in the wind. For you have riches poured out, overflowing, and bathing us with your Glory. In the name of your son, Jesus Christ we pray. Amen"

"God gives us stories that testify to His love. Let me tell you mine."
