A Nutshell of Filters

The study I told you about on Monday (click HERE if you missed it) is proving to be a most needed study for me. Not only what Mariel had to say but what the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD is personally saying to me.

13 For You formed my inward parts;

You wove me in my mother’s womb.

14 I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

Wonderful are Your works,

And my soul knows it very well.

via Psalm 139 NASB – God’s Omnipresence and Omniscience. – Bible Gateway.

I am grateful for my NASB translation as it gave me incentive to go looking for the Hebrew meaning for inward parts.  Inward parts equals kidneys.  And oh my goodness! take a look at kidneys and the word picture that forms is HUGE! (And I have not even read all the materials!) Too huge for me to fully develop here for you so I’ll give you a nutshell.

We know already kidneys are filters. Right? Right. And we know what filters do. They filter. They filter out harmful wastes and toxins. But that’s not all they do. They also produce necessary, most helpful hormones.

In addition to removing wastes, the kidneys release three important hormones:

 Now look at verse 14. Verse 14 says we know very well that we are fearfully and wonderfully made; that we know very well that we are precious and treasured by GOD; that we give thanks to Him; that we believe all His works are wonderful; that we value the precious ones in our wombs.

Look around. Who do you know who has fully embraced ALL this? Look in the mirror. Have you?  Have I? By faith, today I say I am beginning too!

So what’s our problem?  Spiritually speaking, you understand. Verse 13 gives us a clue I believe.

Our kidneys (filters) have been corrupted. They don’t filter out the waste and toxins and they don’t produce the life-sustaining ‘hormones’ in quantities needed. By the way, you know hormones are for balancing the body and emotions, don’t you?

Are you getting the picture?  Sin has corrupted our kidneys. Our filters. Our hormones.

But the GREAT NEWS is that JESUS has come to set our filters and our hormones in proper working order again! As we yield to the HOLY SPIRIT, He is restoring our filters and our balance. One day we will be fully restored! But for now, the more we yield to the HOLY SPIRIT in obedience, in prayer, in HIS WORD, the better our filters, filter and produce. And the healthier we get! And the safer are the precious ones in the wombs of women.

I am loving this study! Thanks for listening.  Happy Wednesday blessings to you, my Friends.

Remember YOU have the God-given RIGHT to do right in this wrong world!
