Today’s reading: Ruth 1-4.

All things work together for good, for those who love the LORD (Romans 8). We usually think about the principle of that key verse applying to our personal circumstances. Today I want you to consider how God worked all things together for good through the history of the Jewish people, even through the life of a widowed Moabite woman named Ruth.

Child of the World – Got questions?

Andrew Farley answers questions

– do not forsake the assembling of yourselves – encourage one another

–  what is God’s will for us under grace? – walk in His love and be thankful – I Thessalonians 5:18

–  should you speak up to church  leaders on wrong teaching e.g. prosperity gospel – Philippians 4 – know the secret of contentment in Christ

–  What is repentance? – change of mind resulting in action – salvation experience

– getting together with those who have different interests – do we intimidate others by our behavior and beliefs? Why don’t they reciprocate ? Have you been hurt? – thoughts on pain and forgiveness – beauty of Christ revealed in us not better than thou attitude – we don’t need to be doormats

– being unevenly yoked – continue relationship with Christ as your salvation is not determined by marriage – Christ lives with you. He turns lemons into lemonade. Spouse does not define you. Christ define you.

– how do you  ascertain spiritual growth – don’t be delusional on your spiritual status – do I focus on Christ not on judgement or measurement of growth which religion makes us.

 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen. 2 Peter 3:18 

– prophecy – Hebrews 1 – Jesus is final – in NT a counselor is  to encourage

God bless, I trust we have learned some new perspectives on the issues discussed.

BIBLE DAILY DEVOTIONAL – Judges 16 – Samson’s do-over

Samson’s do-over: Judges 16

Today’s reading: Judges 16-18.

Can I tell you anything about Samson that you don’t already know? His long hair, his remarkable strength, his temper, his deadly quarrels with the Philistines, his unbridled lust, his betrayal at the hands of Delilah? Yes, that hair. We do need to talk about the hair. Remember that Samson had been raised as a Nazirite since birth. The outward sign of his vow, the uncut hair, symbolized his inner devotion to God. The angel of the LORD who announced his coming said he would be set apart to God from birth. As he grew the LORD blessed him and the spirit of the LORD began to move in him. It’s questionable how much Samson devoted himself to the Nazirite life, but at the very least he never cut his hair until he fell into Delilah’s hands. His parents completely obeyed their charge to raise him in that devoted fashion, and the results when he reached manhood were undeniable.

The View from the Mountaintop

 

th5NBSTMYG  mountaqintop iiThe view that one gets as they gaze the panoramic scene from the top of a mountain is somewhat breathtaking to say the least.  Miles and miles of a picturesque images filter into the mind as one takes in the vast scope of sightings available through the tapestry of reality that lays before them.  Not withstanding, this scenario cannot compare to the visual one gets after coming up out of an horrible pit.

We all have had those mountaintop experiences when the Lord has blessed us, sometimes beyond measure, after we have gone through a time of testing.  How wonderful it is when our spiritual eyes gaze upon the reality of new lessons learned.  For many this is a time of spiritual growth, drawing us closer to the Lord.  Sightings of new opened doors of opportunity to serve, witness and minister bring joy and anticipation into our heart. It is indeed a welcome relief from the valley of despair from whence we just came.  Unfortunately this is a time when we are often most vulnerable to attacks from the Devil.  With a humble heart it is good for us to take a quick look down into the valley from whence we came to remind us of God’s hand in delivering us from our hour of testing.

Although is it not good to dwell on past sins, testing, and disappointments, we need to keep in mind that those very things were the instruments by which we were chiseled into becoming more Christ-like.  Once the abrasiveness of sin is tempered with the soothing lotion of forgiveness, our fellowship with the Heavenly Father is restored and it becomes easier for us to see that all testing comes from above and is meant for our good.  Those disappointments were roadblocks preventing us from turning away from the will of God our life.  Perhaps the most humbling site that pricks our soul is the evidence of God’s working in our life while floundering in the valley.

th6OI4QTPI  cool springAs we look closer into the pit we can see dredged into the sinking sand are drag marks from the time when the Lord had to literally drag us away from temptation and sin.  Further down the path can be seen only one set of footprints when we were being carried by our Savior.  There at the cool spring waters, Christ refreshed us, providing us with the strength to keep going. As our eyes look upon the side of the mountain we can see Jesus climbing upward carrying someone upon his back…………….  Oh, how he loves us.
