"He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; he seats them with princes." ~Psalm 113:7-8
Holy Scripture gives us a pretty clear image of what our God is doing in this world. From Genesis to Revelation, we see the motif of changing places. Switching roles. The rich and powerful are being brought down and the poor and weak are being raised up. God is turning things upside down.
The way the world is right now --- all the power structures, all the people in charge; all the people in the streets, all the oppressed; people without a care in the world, people who are trapped in hopeless cycles of despair --- our God is working to totally flip it around. He's working even now toward a great big ultimate opposite day.
What a joy to partner with our God yesterday and personally participate in his great program of everlasting reversal! When yesterday began, there were 77 orphaned children at our Alara school in Kenya who were not sponsored.
