Scripture for Sunday, September 10 (9/10)

The scripture for today, September 10 (9/10), is Psalm 9:10 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:

0-REV-Cover-No Logo-KINDLE-medium“Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.”

What if we had a friend who we never called by name? It was always “Hey, you”. Our friendship wouldn’t last long because the other person would feel like we weren’t friends after all. Makes sense.

So, what does “Lord” mean in the original Hebrew language of the Old Testament? It is Yahweh, translated in the Greek as Adonai.

In Exodus 3:15b God told Moses what his name was: ” ‘The LORD, the God of your fathers…This is my name forever, the name by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation.’ “

And what does Yahweh mean? Exodus 3:14 explained, “God said to Moses, ‘I AM THAT I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites; ‘I AM has sent me to you.’ ” God is the great I AM.

Jesus explained it this way just before his death in John 14:6, ” ‘I AM the way and the truth and the life”.

We do not have just any god. Our God has a name. He is I AM, he is self-existent, he is life.

And so we worship him ~ the Lord our God.

Scripture for Saturday, September 2 (9/2)

The scripture for today, September 2 (9/2), is Job 9:2 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:

0000-BK 1-StarSong-Cover-new-Medium“Though one wishes to dispute with Him [God], he could not answer Him one time out of a thousand.”

There are so-called sophisticated intellectuals in the world who want to come up with all the answers about God. Many even make God in their image instead of we being made in God’s image. They try to reduce God to complete human understanding.

That cannot be! If we could understand everything about God, He would not be God! Let us rejoice that there are things about Him we do not understand. Let us rejoice that there are events in our life we do not understand ~ the good, the bad, the ugly. Let us rejoice that such a God loves us in our finiteness.

 

Scripture for Friday, July 28 (7/28)

Life-Changing-Scriptures-Cover-mediumThe scripture for today, July 28 (7/28), is 2nd Samuel 7:28 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:

 

“O Sovereign Lord, you are God! Your words are trustworthy, and you have promised these good things to your servant.”

What a beautiful praise. Praising God is different from thanking him. It is acknowledging him for His traits ~ not for what He does, but what He is.

He is trustworthy!

He is able to hear all our prayers at once!

He is everywhere and all knowing!

He is perfect love!

He is anxious to forgive!

He considers us his children!

Ah, behold our Creator. Such a One as this. Sublime thoughts. Peaceful reverie. Today, let us praise Him.

Scripture for Saturday, May 20 (5/20)

The Scripture for today, May 20, is 2nd Corinthians 5:20a as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

00-cover-kindle-medium-new“We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.”

When we are in pain and long for reassurances that God is with us, one of the things we often want is to see God, feel God’s touch, look into God’s eyes. This is where Christians come in. God says to Christians, “Go to those in pain. Let them see you, feel your touch, look into your eyes.”

Are you God’s ambassador? Are your feet taking you where he would go? Are your eyes gazing on someone he would look for?  Are your hands touching anyone he would soothe? Are your lips telling anyone how they can escape hell?

Are you an ambassador for God today and tomorrow and tomorrow?
