Thursday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Genesis 50:20

"But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive."

One of the greatest assets Joseph had was his sensitivity to every situation. In both his triumphs and tragedies, Joseph was able to see through his circumstances and see God at work behind the scenes.

Joseph always seems to be conscious of God in his life. He refused the invitation of Potiphar’s wife because he recognized that it would be “a sin against God.” He refused to exalt himself when interpreting Pharaoh’s dream, instead insisting that “God shall give Pharaoh an answer.” Now he refuses to take vengeance upon his brothers for selling him as a slave, since he now knows the Lord had it in mind all along. Joseph made God part of every aspect of his life.

If we can come to a place in our spiritual walk where we can see God at work in both our triumphs and tragedies, we’ll find new peace in our souls. We don’t always understand or particularly like what God arranges, but we understand the fact that He is in charge, and we bow to His sovereignty. That’s called living with an eternal perspective, and it’s exactly what Joseph does. He has confidence that God is at work on His master plan, regardless of how the immediate circumstances appear.

Wednesday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Psalm 45:11

He is your Lord, worship Him.

Once A. W. Tozer called worship the “missing jewel” of the modern church. There are too many churches, too many Christians that do not know how to worship God, or even why worship is our primary responsibility before Him. We have churches that emphasize preaching, churches that stress evangelism, and churches that highlight body fellowship, but worship is the priority commandment from God. We are called to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and we develop our love for Him in worship.

Our lives are changed and our spiritual walk is strengthened as we come before God and worship Him. It is the priority commandment in His Word. We will never truly know God until we worship Him, and we will never really worship Him unless we know Him. He is sitting on the throne in heaven, worthy of honor and glory and praise, awaiting our worship. He inhabits the praises of His people and can be found there with them as they worship Him. He is a great God, a King above all gods who will be gloriously worshiped throughout all eternity. And He wants you to know Him.

Good Morning Everyone,

Merry Christmas!! Ponder this:

Mary did you know that your Baby boy would one day walk on water?

Mary did you know that your Baby boy would save our sons and daughters?

Did you know that your Baby boy has walked where angels trod?

And when you kiss your little Baby, you kiss the face of God?

Oh Mary did you know?

This One we celebrate this time of year and all the rest of the time is Jesus Christ!!! 2nd Person of the Trinity!! King of kings!!  Lord of lords!! Great I Am!! Prince of peace!!  Wonderful Counselor!! Mighty God!! Everlasting Father!!  Praise Jesus today!!!

Monday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Ezekiel 22:30

"I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one."

When Frances Havergal, author of the hymn, “Take My Life and Let It Be,” was a teenager, her parents moved to Dusseldorf, Germany, where she was placed in a German school. She was the only Christian among 110 pupils. The others made fun of her, teased her, even persecuted her. Her response? “It was very bracing,” she wrote. “I felt I must try to walk worthy of my calling, for Christ’s sake. It was a sort of nailing my colors to the mast.”

You might be the only Christian in your school, on your ball team, at your office, or in your family. What an opportunity! Christians are the “salt of the earth.” It doesn’t take a lot of salt to season the whole pot. The presence of even one believer can hinder sin, delay judgment, prompt conviction, and extend the kingdom of God.

Paul and his two companions were apparently the only believers on the storm-tossed ship in Acts 27. But their presence saved all 276 people on board. The odds against Elijah on Mount Carmel were 450 to 1, but one plus God is a majority.The feeblest light is best seen in the thickest darkness. Don’t be afraid to nail your colors to the mast.

Friday's Devotional

Good Morning Y'all

Let's look at Philippians 1:12

"The things which happened to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the gospel."

Samuel Rutherford attended Edinburgh University as a young man and began teaching there at age twenty-three. But desiring to preach the gospel, he assumed the pastorate in Anwoth, Scotland, in 1627, and served faithfully for ten years. In 1636, he was called before the High Commission Court to defend his Puritan views. He lost the case and was exiled from his congregation.

On July 13, 1637, he wrote to his church from exile: “Next to Christ, I had but one joy, the apple of the eye of my delights, to preach Christ my Lord; and they have violently plucked that away from me. It was to me like the poor man’s one eye; and they have put out that eye, and quenched my light in the inheritance of the Lord.” But all this actually furthered the gospel. While in exile, he wrote many letters which were later compiled into one of Christian history’s greatest classics, The Letters of Samuel Rutherford.

Whenever you experience a reversal in life, look around for an opportunity to share the gospel. Problems have a way of becoming pulpits in the overruling providence of God.

Bro. Paul
