Nuggets – Power from Grace

Power from Grace
“And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.” (Acts 4:33)

The apostle Peter observed that believers are to be ministering our “gift” to one another as “good stewards of the manifold grace of God” (1 Peter 4:10). The words for “gift” and “grace” are very closely related. “Grace” is the most frequent translation for the Greek word charis, and charisma is most often rendered “gift.”

“The working of his mighty power” (Ephesians 1:19) appears to be “the manifestation of the Spirit” (1 Corinthians 12:7) displayed among God’s people by means of the gifts that the Holy Spirit has graced us with. Paul’s ability to minister was “according to the gift of the grace of God given unto [him, Paul] by the effectual working of his power” (Ephesians 3:7).

Bible Daily Devotional – Psalm 90 – Countdown to eternity

Countdown to eternity: Psalm 90

320235345_b9524743e4_z

Today’s reading: Psalms 90-95.

Life is too short to read all the “life is too short” quotes. One day we’ll all be  horizontal, no matter how tall we stand now. One day we’ll wither like the dry grass. But until that day, there is still time – time to learn the secret of numbering our days. The Psalmist knew the secret. He was able to look at the brief span of life – “seventy years, or eighty if we have the strength” – and not give in to despair. He could expect to “sing for joy and be glad all our days.” He knew how to reconcile his brief life with eternity.

The length of our days is seventy years– or eighty, if we have the strength; yet their span is but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away. Who knows the power of your anger? For your wrath is as great as the fear that is due you. Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Relent, O LORD! How long will it be? Have compassion on your servants. Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be gad all our days. Psalm 90:10-14

Nuggets – The Sun of Righteousness

The Sun of Righteousness
“But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.” (Malachi 4:2)

This is the very last of the numerous Messianic prophecies of the Old Testament. After this, there were four centuries of silence from heaven, as far as inspired Scriptures were concerned. Thus this prophecy must have special significance.

Teens Blog SF50 Why Are They Talking So Weird – Part 2

Why Are They Talking So Weird - Anchor Of Promise
Last week I talked about who the Holy Spirit is and how He speaks to us. This week we are going to finish our talk on the Holy Spirit in your life.

We know already that the Holy Spirit understands and comprehends our thoughts. He also comprehends the thoughts of God. How? Because He is God. Remember, God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit as are one.

1 Corinthians 2:10-11
These things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. For who knows a person’s thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.

When you have the Holy Spirit within you, He speaks to God for you in ways that you cannot. Continue reading

Bible Daily Devotional – Psalm 86 – Praying God’s goodness

Praying God’s goodness: Psalm 86

508977152_2937065689_z

Today’s reading: Psalms 86-89.

David’s prayer in Psalm 86 is full of praise, but that makes perfect sense. God has promised to dwell in the praise of his people. We never pray better than when we speak with a mouth full of praise, and our praises are never greater than when we magnify the character of God. David fills his psalm with accounts of God’s goodness, and we would do well to remember his list when we pray.

You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call to you. Hear my prayer, O LORD; listen to my cry for mercy. In the day of my trouble I will call to you, for you will answer me. Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord; no deeds can compare with yours. Psalm 86:5-8

His goodness and love.  “You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call to you.”

Nuggets – Zechariah’s Strange Prophecy

Zechariah’s Strange Prophecy
“All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.” (Matthew 21:4-5)

When Jesus rode into Jerusalem on an unbroken donkey colt on that momentous first day of the week, just a week before His resurrection, the multitudes quickly recognized that He was fulfilling an ancient prophecy and thereby specifically claiming to be their long-awaited Messiah. The prophecy was that of Zechariah 9:9, and the people in turn began to fulfill David’s even more ancient prophecy, laying palm branches in His path, and crying out: “Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD” (Psalm 118:26).

Fire in the Bridal Chamber – SoS Saturday

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Put me like a seal over your heart,
Like a seal on your arm.
For love is as strong as death,
Jealousy is as severe as Sheol;
Its flashes are flashes of fire,
The very flame of the LORD.

Song of Songs 8:6 NASB

GODS PLAN FOR AGELESSNESS

The old Dutch proverb concludes; “We get too soon old, too late smart”. I may have quoted it a time or two when I was younger, and, with a smile. I not longer subscribe to the idea (If I ever did) and I don’t regard it as a clever assessment.

I would hope that one would not have to wait until his “last days” to find the real truth of old age.

If we have lived our lives with regret and recrimination for not having done something or call for a “do over” of our lives, surrendering to the shoulda-coulda syndrome, we have missed the point of Gods plan for us.
That is, to get old, not as a regrettable circumstance, but one of His many predictions. And, that gaining wisdom is a never ending process that calls for periodic stupidity, and readjustment. There are no target dates or scores common to any of us. It is a marathon for one.

What I can say in my mid eighties, is that I have gotten old at just the right time, as my body is now beginning to attest. And, I am smarter then I planned on being, simply because God’s plan was bigger than mine.

The smart part, I think, is that I have learned to narrow down my focus to those things that I believe please God. And, to dismiss those things that have a bearing on our everlasting relationship. My heart is not troubled with should haves.

I have increased my expectations for all those things that He has promised, and the Spirit vested in me has become a constant reminder that I can do all things; that I am not just the custodian of His gifts, but on the threshold of using them in ways I could never fully imagine. What joy it brings to my life.

I am living in great peace within God’s appointed time for me, feasting upon His boundless wisdom and mystery and not upon my own limited understanding and imagination.
