"Faye's Daily Words Of Encouragement # 152 Today's Word is: Dust"

Updated on February 20, 2010

"Faye's Daily Words Of Encouragement # 152 The Word Is: Dust

All go unto one place;all are dust, and all turn again to dust.  Ecclesiastes 3-20
All go unto one place;all are dust, and all turn again to dust. Ecclesiastes 3-20

"Faye's DailyWords Of Encouragement # 152 Todays Word Is :Dust

Definition of the word Dust; A substance reduce to powder, to remove dust from a specific place, to sprinkle with or cover lightly, human forms made dust om of the earth.

Genesis chapter 2 - 7 : And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Genesis chapter 3 - 19 : In sweat of the face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

Job 34 -15 :All  flesh shall perish together, and man shall turn  again unto dust.

Psalms chapter 30 - 9 : What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit, shall the dust praise thee, shall it declare thy truth.

Ecclesiastes chapter 3 - 20 :All go unto one place; all are dust; and all turn again to dust.

Ecclesiastes chapter 12 - 7: Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

Mark chapter 6 - 11 : And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart. Thence, shake off the dust of your feet for a testing against them. Verily I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgement than for that city.

Today's daily words of encouragement is the word Dust. Try as we may, to get rid of dust' by cleaning, dusting and vacuuming, yet dust is still around us. The simple fact and truth is dust must  be essential to us, because God made us from the dust of the earth.  I guess we can be called the dust of life; because God formed man out of the dust and breathed life into his  nostrils and he became a living being.

Dust represent a great importance to us, even though we all try to live without it. We are all dust and shall all return again back unto dust.  Dust is the essence of our being, there no way around that fact, but we still try to live our lives dust free. God could have chosen anything else besides dust to create man out of, but he chose the dust of the earth, so there has to be some significance in his choice of dust instead of any other matter.

      My dad used to say-

      "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

      If the Lord don't get you, the Devil Must!"

      Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

      Oooohhhhhh...I get this. How truly profound to me.

      Our physical bodies are only made of dust-and our bodies will return to dust-but the spirit to which God blew into our nostrils will return us back to the Holy Spirit-One in Christ Jesus.

      This was sooooo good to read tonight!

      This fact should really keep us humble. There should be no room for thoughts of superiority over one race, background, or creed - since we are all made from the same matter. Thanks for another great reminder creativeone.

      dust appears to refer to something quite basic. In our day it would probaly be atoms or particles.

      This fact that you brought out creativeone is important: "We are all dust and shall all return again back unto dust."

      Since we all are dust, man has no reason for arrogance. In the blink of an eye, we will all be dust once again.

      A hub that confronts us with the truth of our real physical selves. God bless you!

      Forever His,
