Scripture for Sunday, March 19 (3/19)

0-Mefiboset-KINDLE MediumThe scripture for today, March 19, is Habakkuk 3:19 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:

”The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights.”

The little book of Habakkuk was written during a period when the leaders were oppressing the poor. Habakkuk complains to God, “Why do you tolerate wrong?”. God answers that he’s getting ready to put an end to it. Not satisfied, Habakkuk pretty much asks the same question again. God tells him to put in writing a prophecy of what God plans to do to the oppressors.

Wow! God’s really going to do that? Habakkuk’s faith is renewed. His faith is strong again. So, strong he feels as though he is “on the heights.”

Everyone grows impatient when leaders are doing wrong. But we must understand that we see just part of the problem and that God is waiting until the right time to put an end to it ~ a time when people are so desperate with helplessness that even unbelievers can’t help but know God intervened.

So, when times come in your own life that everything seems to be going wrong, read the little book of Habakkuk in the Old Testament and know that God is still in control.  He has not forgotten you. He has special plans for you.

Scripture for Monday, July 25 (7/25)

The scripture for today, July 25, is Hebrews 7:25 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

0-Luke-Slave&Physician KINDLE Cover“Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him [Jesus], because he always lives to intercede for them.” 

Indeed, all of mankind is invited to come to God through Jesus. There are scriptures in the Bible about being chosen by God. But when you check the original Greek, it means you are being invited by God. If a company puts out a newspaper ad inviting people to be interviewed for hiring, the company can only choose those who accepted the invitation.

And something else stands out in that verse. Jesus is our intercessor, our mediator. Why would we want anyone lower than Jesus to be our intercessor when Jesus will do so himself?

How amazing! In one sentence we see that God the Father invites all of mankind to come to him to be saved completely, and that God the Son is our ever-present intercessor. 

Such love. Such divine love. It is beyond comprehension. All we can do is fall to our knees and whisper, “Thank you.”

DISCUSSION QUESTION:  IS IT TRUE THAT WE DO NOT CHOOSE GOD, BUT GOD CHOOSES US?  DID YOU EVER BELIEVE THAT?  WHY?  THE BIBLE SAYS “Choose you this day whom you will serve…as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. (Joshua 24:15).  AFTER READING THIS, WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE?

The scripture for today, March 31, is Mark 3:31ff as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

0-BOOK 4-FOLK HERO-COVER“Then Jesus’ mother and brothers arrived. Standing outside, they sent someone in to call him. A crowd was sitting around him and they told him, ‘Your mother and brothers are outside looking for you.’ ‘Who are my mother and my brothers?’ he asked. Then he looked at those seated in a circle around him and said, ‘Here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.’ “

Do we need a mediator between Jesus and ourselves? Jesus said his followers are his brothers, sisters and mother. We do not need anyone to intercede and beg Jesus to give us special attention. He already gives us special attention.

After all, we are his family.
