Praise the Lord Anyway!

Your enemies have mocked me, O LORD; they mock your anointed king wherever he goes. Praise the LORD forever!  Amen and amen! (Psalm 89:51-52)

It’s easy to praise God when life is good. It’s a gorgeous spring day . . . praise the Lord! I just got a raise . . . praise the Lord! My doctor gave me a clean bill of health . . . praise the Lord! I got an “A”‘ on my final exam . . . praise the Lord!

But what about when life isn’t good? The wind chill factor today is minus 25 degrees . . . praise the Lord? I just lost my job . . . praise the Lord? My doctor says it’s cancer . . . praise the Lord? I’m going to fail that class . . . praise the Lord?

Psalm 89 exemplifies praising God when life is hard, praising God anyway. This psalm begins by singing of God’s unfailing love (89:1-2). Moreover, all of heaven will praise God’s great wonders (89:5). God’s faithfulness to his people is a cause for rejoicing (89:9). This faithfulness is centered in God’s covenant with David and his promise that David’s dynasty will go on forever (89:19-37). But then Psalm 89 takes a dark turn, even accusing God of renouncing his covenant with David (89:39). The psalmist cries out, “O LORD, how long will this go on? Will you hide yourself forever?” (89:46). The penultimate verse of Psalm 89 laments, “Your enemies have mocked me, O LORD; they mock your anointed king wherever he goes” (89:51).

But then comes the startling conclusion: “Praise the LORD forever! Amen and amen!” What? Praise the Lord who has allowed his people to suffer, who has strengthened the enemies of Israel, whose unfailing love seems to have disappeared? Praise this Lord? Now?

Yes, that’s where Psalm 89 leaves us, without explanation, without apology. Yes, there is an unresolved tension here, something that can’t be rationalized away. The psalmist shows unsettling freedom in his protest against God, even accusing God of breaking his promises. Yet, he ends on a note of praise, and not just praise, but eternal praise. In the midst of pain and suffering, praise the Lord! When you can’t figure out what God is doing, praise the Lord! When God feels very distant, praise the Lord!

I’m not suggesting that this is easy to do. In fact, I find this to be exceptionally difficult. Thus, I am challenged by today’s psalm to do what does not come naturally, to praise the Lord at all times, to praise the Lord anyway.

Praising God anyway, when we’re in the midst of difficult times needs a little context to be seen from the correct perspective.

While we were yet sinners, God showed His love for us by giving His Son, Jesus, to bear our sins as He died on the cross. Jesus’ death reconciled man’s sin and sinful nature with the holiness of God. To partake of that reconciliation, we must put our trust in Jesus as our Savior . . . not by our works, but even to those who believe on His name.

We were less than nothing and have been given everything.

So, back to praising God even in difficult times. That’s a bit like walking along and stubbing your toe, quite painfully I might add, and just when you’re ready to complain to God about it, you see that you’ve stubbed your toe on the marble steps leading up and into the grandest mansion the world has ever seen . . . a mansion that God has just given to you.

And that comparison utterly fails when we really think about what wretched worms we were in God’s eyes, and then the enormous sacrifice God made to be able to adopt us into His family as His sons and daughters.

Amazing grace, How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me . . .

So, when events take a nasty turn for us during our short time down here, perhaps we can do a bit better about praising God anyway, in view of our riches for eternity up there with God.

    John Durham Investigation Intensifies Focus on John Brennan

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/john-durham-investigation-intensifies-focus-on-john-brennan

    QUOTE:

    April 03, 2020

    U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the Russia investigation is putting increased scrutiny on former CIA Director John Brennan, searching for any undue influence he may have had during 2017’s intelligence community assessment of Russian interference.

    Durham, selected by Attorney General William Barr last year to lead this inquiry, drove to Washington, D.C., in March to ensure the investigation stayed on track during the coronavirus outbreak.

    The top Connecticut federal prosecutor is looking into highly sensitive issues, including whether Brennan took politicized actions to pressure the rest of the intelligence community to match his conclusions about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s motivations, according to sources cited by the Wall Street Journal.

    Officials said Durham has been interviewing CIA officials this year, zeroing in on those at the National Intelligence Council, a center within the Office of the Director of National Intelligence which oversaw the collaboration between the CIA, FBI, and National Security Agency in putting together the 2017 assessment, and looking at how the work product was finalized.

    Durham is also reportedly reviewing Brennan’s handling of a secret source said to be close to the Kremlin. The prosecutor wants to know what role that person’s information played in the assessment.

    Durham is also scrutinizing Brennan in relation to British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s dossier. In particular, the prosecutor is looking for answers on whether it was used in the 2017 assessment, why former FBI Director James Comey and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe insisted upon it being part of the assessment, how allegations from the dossier ended up in the assessment’s appendix, and whether Brennan misled about the dossier’s use.

    The Wall Street Journal reported that sources said United Kingdom authorities refused Durham’s request to interview Steele. The former MI6 agent also declined Durham’s request to speak, saying he and his business had already “done our duty” by cooperating with DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s investigation into alleged Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuses, which found glaring flaws with Steele’s dossier and the way the FBI used it to obtain warrants to wiretap Trump campaign associate Carter Page.

    “I stand by the integrity of our work, our sources, and what we did,” Steele told Oxford Union students last month.

    The Judge—Heritage Brief 13
    by Rick Joyner

    Although it will take some radical solutions to get our Federal Government back on track and reconnected again to its constitutional moorings, we have an amazingly strong and resilient foundation to work with. We must never think it is not possible. If the U.S. Navy CB’s have the motto: “The difficult we do immediately, but the impossible may take a little longer,” how much more should we, who serve a God for whom nothing is impossible, believe this?

    Judicial tyranny may presently be the greatest threat to the Republic, but no republic can survive without a strong, independent judiciary devoted to justice. Even though we may have suffered much from wayward judges and courts, most have not gone awry, have stayed within their lane and doing a great service to the country.

    One of the first ways that the Founders saw as an inroad for the corruption of the judiciary was for judges, including Supreme Court justices, to have lifetime appointments. They believed that no government official should ever be exempt from accountability, and nothing likely can shield one from accountability like a lifetime appointment.

    When this wisdom was disregarded and lifetime appointments for certain seats were given, they were intended to enable judges to rise above political pressure to stay focused on justice. Lifetime appointments may have seemed like a good remedy for this, but it did not work. Now our judicial system is as politicized as the rest of the government.

    Every major departure like this from The Constitution has only created worse problems than the ones they were devised to fix. That being said, it seems reasonable that judges and justices should have long enough terms to at least allay some of the pressures of politics that can pervert justice. It could be helpful to have the renewal of their terms close to automatic, but there needs to be some ongoing evaluation and accountability for their performance and compliance with the law and The Constitution. Those who would protest the most at having their lifetime appointment removed should probably be the first to be removed. To be a judge is a high calling, and we obviously want those who are above reproach in the courts.

    Our Founders feared the tyranny of the mob as much as they feared the tyranny of a king. The same crowd that welcomed Jesus into Jerusalem declaring “Hosanna, blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!” were crying “Crucify Him!” just five days later. The Founders were devoted to establishing a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, but also one that could ride out the wild swings of public opinion. These swings can create a social turbulence that tears a nation apart.

    Democracies are where the majority rules. Republics are where the people vote for representatives that rule on their behalf. The representatives ideally will not just try to please public opinion, which can so wildly swing from one extreme to the opposite extreme, but rather do what is best for the whole country. This is why our Founders formed a constitutional republic, not a democracy as many wrongly presume.

    As John Adams noted, no democracy had survived more than a short time before committing suicide. As he also wrote, “A democracy is like two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for lunch.” Under pure democracies, the rights of minorities tend to get ignored or trampled upon. To ultimately be a nation of “justice for all,” the Founders knew we had to be a constitutional republic where The Constitution was “the supreme law of the land.”

    All three branches of government have been prone to infringe on the authority given to the other branches, as well as the authority given to the states and the people. The military calls this “mission creep”—when a commander starts adding to their specific assignment. When this happens, very often the original assignment gets muddled and sometimes forgotten. This has happened in our Federal Government. It has taken on many purposes that are beyond its constitutional authority.

    To remedy this, we must recover the fact that The Constitution was written to assign specific authority to the Federal Government and forever limit it to what was specifically given to it in order to preserve the authority of the states and the people. Therefore, the assignment of any purpose to the Federal Government not specifically named in The Constitution is a violation of The Constitution. A main purpose of The Constitution was to limit the authority of the Federal Government in order to keep it from becoming what it has now become.

    To bring the needed correction to restore the constitutional boundaries of the Federal Government, it would be much better for the three branches of it to be self-correcting. This would require champions of The Constitution to arise in each one to get our government back on the rails. This is still possible. Yet, with every day that passes without the self-correction, the likelihood of it becomes more remote. Therefore, the likely source of change will be from the states and the people.

    I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power. –Thomas Jefferson

    The Founding Fathers were concerned with the moral principles of the American people more than any other attribute. They were confident their countrymen would always be brave and industrious, but they feared a future decline in their moral character. This fear probably arose from what was known about previous democratic governments. The democracies of the ancient world had fallen apart due largely to a decline in the virtue of their citizens, the people’s loss of interest in their voice in governmental decisions, or a lust for power by their leaders. The Founding Fathers believed that if the American people would remain honest, be attentive to their responsibilities as citizens, eschew personal fame and power, and love God, then America would remain a strong force for freedom and hope in the world. —Gordon Leidner

    2. 40000 feet down?

      Really?

      That’s ludicrous, and here’s why:

      Every mile down, the temperature increases by 72-87 degrees F. This continues down to a depth of about 250 miles, then the gradient gets less steep.

      40000 feet is over seven miles.

      Tunnels seven deep would be at around 500-600 F and would be about as habitable as your oven (turned on).

      I say again, LUDICROUS!!!!

          The temperature of the rock reaches 66 °C (151 °F), and the mine pumps slurry ice underground to cool the tunnel air to below 30 °C (86 °F).[1] A mixture of concrete, water, and rock is packed into excavated areas, which further acts as an insulator.[1] Tunnel walls are secured by flexible shotcrete reinforced with steel fibers, which is further held in place by diamond-mesh netting.[1]
          END QUOTE.

          That’s a lot of effort to go through, but it’s one of the world’s best gold mines so it pays.

          40000 feet is over ten kilometers. This mine, though impressive…is a far cry from this ludicrous claim.

          And… 3.84 km = roughly 2.39 miles. Applying that to the 72-87 degree fahrenheit gradient, the mine ought to be 172-208 degrees above whatever it is underground just below ground level–call that about seventy degrees.

          Although this mine is quite a bit cooler than the gradient numbers I quoted above would cause one to expect–still, multiply it by about three to see where you’d be at 40,000 feet below the surface.

          The deepest (officially acknowledged) borehole–just a hole for a drill, not something deep enough for people to go down–is in the 42,000 foot range. The temperature at the bottom of that was 356 F.

          Believing in a huge network of tunnels at 40,000 feet down requires that one believe someone has VASTLY better tech for drilling long tunnels than is publicized–as in decades ahead–and that the people using this tech would never have used it for other purposes closer to the surface (for say, the utility companies they often own). And the energy budget to keep the things cooled enough to not be ovens would be enormous; again that would be energy they could put to more productive use.

          Imagine if someone were to suggest to you that someone owns a 747-sized aircraft that can fly (take off, land, all that stuff you know quite well), even with the fuselage filled entirely, top to bottom, port to starboard, fore to aft (exclude the cabin) with lead shot. To say nothing of how much the structure would have to be beefed up to keep the plane from collapsing under its own weight…imagine the engines!!! Oh, but the engine tech is kept secret! Never mind the fact that someone could make a killing putting smaller engines on regular aircraft with that tech.

          You’d probably say LUDICROUS.

          And so with this network of tunnels nearly eight miles down…I say, LUDICROUS.

      2. Additionally, water in the surrounding porous rock formations at that depth would be at hydrostatic pressure around 20,000 pounds per square inch (psi). The walls of the tunnels would need to be thick steel and extremely leak proof in order to keep the soldiers dry and from being compressed into organic mush.

        Any pinhole leak would instantly become a jet of super heated steam that would be capable of cutting through steel if close enough. Additionally, the hot steam would quickly decompress and cause massive volumes of hot lower pressure steam to fill the tunnel for miles pushing anything in front of it at high speeds.

        This is one conspiracy that I don’t subscribe to.

        1. Much of the internet hullabaloo over this has assumed a network MUCH closer to the surface. I think this deep stuff just came about because there have been earthquakes at that depth recently and people are hoping that “rods from god” are somehow smashing through eight miles of rock without any sign of it on the surface.

          The near-surface tunnels (hell even 1000 feet down isn’t ridiculous) are more plausible but still stretch credulity–tunnels are expensive, and building tunnels thousands of miles long would be daunting.

          But my biggest issue with this not-as-ludicrous case is that there’s literally no sauce for any of it. It’s just being quoted endlessly, like the YSM did with Russian Collusion off a fake dossier.

            1. Actually that’s a pretty funny question, right there.

              Someone did a video explaining what, given gravitational theory, it would be like walking towards the edge of a “flat” earth. You’d actually find yourself climbing up a slope as you got closer to the edge. Not because it’s a bowl, but because gravity would “point” towards the center of the disk, i.e., at a slant to the plane of the surface. Water, for instance would want to pool in the center of the face of the disk.

              This doesn’t happen here on earth–so advocating a flat earth model is equivalent to denying Newtonian (and Einsteinian) gravitation is accurate.

              1. That’s an excellent point, Steve. I had never thought about that.

                And the more massive or dense this hypothetical Flat Earth is, the more “uphill” one would have to walk to get to the end!

                Take this to the extreme (imagine multiple massive Jupiters that are just below the fusion threshold), and one could never get to the end. Can it wrap on itself, essentially become round?

                Liked by 1 person

              2. Well if one thinks about it…on this flat earth, there’d be enormous pressure those edges would put enormous pressure onto the stuff just inside the edge, which in turn would put even more pressure on what’s closer to the center from that–the combined weight of everything further out.

                What would happen is somewhere down the line, the rock would collapse under all that weight and…wow, you’d eventually end up with a sphere of debris.

                Which isn’t all that bad a description of what the Earth was like when it was formed!

                It’s almost as if large things just automatically end up being round or something.

                Indeed, that factor ended up being useful in some of the definitions of certain classes of bodies, that astronomers finally came up with fairly recently.

              4. Along the lines of this conversation, I thought of this old YouTube demo by a teacher showing students a cool way to visualize gravity. I am sure that Steve has already seen this, but thought that other readers likely haven’t. Very recommended and fun to watch!

                Note that about halfway through, he demos why all the planets are circling the sun in the same direction? Was this the hand of God, or a result of something else?

                Back to the “how flat disks tend to self-destruct into spheres” thread, this is yet another example of how systems trend to their lowest potential energy level. A sphere (I.e. droplet of water dealing with high surface tension forces, nuclei dealing with the strong force, celestial bodies and collection of bodies (E.g. galaxies) dealing with gravity, shock waves dealing with pressure pulses, etc.) is always the shape that achieves that minimization.

I’m NOT saying that’s certainly what he meant–yours makes MORE more sense now that you’ve pointed it out to me–just that it was my natural guess.

    1. Even worse than writing the public letter and leaking it to the media – was this captain letting his men go ashore during a pandemic!!!

      Poor judgment – he was careless with his most vital assets and responsibilities – his men and the ship’s military readiness.

      1. This makes no sense to me, GA/FL – why would a man with such a stellar reputation and success – just forget proper protocol – all of a sudden – was he blackmailed – his family threatened – or was he always a jerk who got promoted without the hard work – just wondering…

        1. The top brass are humans… over a dozen Admirals got caught in a scam with a birthing mogul in Asia. Fat somebody.

          Look at the priests, bishops, archbishops and even cardinals caught in the gay crap.

    2. Linda, They’ll be fine. Military in general and Navy specifically has lots of meds to prevent malaria.

      While I dunno, betting 5,000+ Abbott 15 minute test kits sent to Roosevelt medical to test entire crew.

      Beyond that, enough kits to test the couple thousand sailors on the escort ships, typically three or so Cruiser / Destroyers and a couple logistics ships.

  10. I believe this was noted upthread, but can’t find it right now. Both hubby and I agree POTUS is referring to more than the virus – if it was just about the virus, he would have referenced the virus specifically. I know we like to look for double meanings, but place this in that fold – POTUS is talking about something Big and Strong – I don’t think it’s the virus only.

    We are learning much about the Invisible Enemy. It is tough and smart, but we are tougher and smarter!

      1. Exactly. Told my hubby we talk about viruses as difficult, challenging, strong, mutating, but not “smart.” POTUS also capitalized those two words – Invisible Enemy – he’s talking about something else, something he is privy to… That tweet has had a huge number of “likes” – 213,000 last I looked – others caught the double meaning.
