Tutored by God

I had told my wife some of the impact which I had felt from having read of the life of Frederick Douglass, abolitionist.

She quickly responded, "Yes Doug, and I have found my attention drawn quite extraordinarily this morning to Psalm 146. Hadn't given it all that much thought before."

Listen to the Psalmist:

1Praise ye the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul.

2While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.

3Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.

4His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.

5Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God:

6Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:

7Which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry. The LORD looseth the prisoners:

8The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind: the LORD raiseth them that are bowed down: the LORD loveth the righteous:

9The LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.

10The LORD shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the LORD.

How marvelously this scripture seems to speak of God's rescue of the oppressed and disadvantaged. My wife and I were being tutored by the Holy Spirit.

Every now and then I get an inkling of what Paul the Apostle meant when he said that at point of great discovery 'he conferred not with flesh and blood'.
