Today’s Thought

It makes me wonder at times why “so called” Christians think they always have to portray themselves as more knowledgeable of the Bible, when the point they are making has little or no bearing on what another person has said.  We split hairs over the simplest things instead of presenting the Gospel in a way that will lead people to the knowledge of salvation.  Let’s not find ourselves in a position that deters people from finding the truth of God’s Word just because we think the period or comma is in the wrong place.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

♫ I need thee, Oh I need thee, Every hour I need thee, Oh bless me now my Savior I come to thee. ♫  How often are we guilty of only coming to the Lord when a problem we can’t handle arises?  We just don’t need the Lord in difficult times, but all the time.  As I get older the more I appreciate that God is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, because that’s when I need Him.  Let’s realize today that we are a needy people and that God is there for us all the time.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

I saw this morning where someone wrote “is anyone having a good day”.  How we feel about a day often is reflected in how we view it.  There is a saying, “If you woke up this morning, you have a purpose”.  If we are believers how we view the day should be reflected in our attitude toward whether we believe God has our best interests at heart or not.  Now lay your hand on your heart, you feel it beating because God isn’t done with you yet.  God loves each of us and our lives have purpose.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

II Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.  How often do we allow the devil to intimidate us with a spirit of fear?  Our emotions play a big part in how we address fear.  What we need to recognize, in spite of our emotions, is that God doesn’t want us to live in fear.  He has given us the spirits of power, love and a sound mind.  Let’s use the authority that God has given us to resist the devil, if we do he has to flee from us.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

I often wonder how people who don’t know Jesus as their Savior deal with the problems of every day life.  As believers it’s hard sometimes to face what comes our way.  But I’m so glad that we can face whatever comes our way knowing that Jesus is right there with us seeing us through.  So don’t give up and don’t give in help is on the way.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

Music has always been such a big part of my life that when I’m thinking about a certain problem or circumstance a song will pop into my mind.  Some of the reasons I miss singing some of the great “well seasoned” hymns in church is because of the messages of salvation, healing and restoration they carried. I trust we will never forget those hymns that we were raised on.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

Sitting here at my computer I’m still having a lot of pain from shingles.  But, as I was thinking about putting up with this discomfort for a few days, I thought about the pain Jesus endured at the whipping post and again at the cross.  I didn’t choose my pain, but Jesus chose His, so we could have healing and deliverance.  Let’s take some time today to reflect on what Jesus did for us through the pain He suffered.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

I’m sure we all at one time or another have heard the saying, “Why do bad things happen to good people”.  Well, I don’t have all the answers, and the older I get sometimes I feel I know less and less.  But, to borrow a line from the Andrea Crouch song “Through It All”, it says ♫ I’ve learned to trust in Jesus, I’ve learned to trust in God. ♫  Just remember our trials will only come to make us strong.  God bless!

Todays Thought

I Peter 5: 8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 9 Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.  When you are doing your best to do the will of God, you can expect the devil to attack any way he can.  It’s important for us to realize we have authority through the blood of Jesus to resist him.  So don’t let the devil “devour” you, but resist him and go forward in victory.  God bless! 

Today’s Thought

As I was lying in bed last night getting ready to fall asleep, I was singing some songs in my head.  One that I was singing is not a new one, but one that still carries the same message today.  That song is It Is No Secret (What God Can Do).  How often is it hard to believe that God can do for us what we have seen Him do for others?  Well to God the color of our skin, whether we are big or small, rich or poor, etc. doesn’t matter.  What He has done for others, He’ll do for us.  God bless!
