A GOLDEN PROMISE

“The name of Yahweh is a strong tower: the righteous run to him, and are safe” –Proverbs 18:10

The name of our Lord and God is a strong tower, a mighty fortress that we can run to any time, night or day, and find safety. Psalm 91 talks about this strong tower being ‘the secret place of the Most High’. It is a place where we can stay our entire lives, dwelling under the shadow of the Almighty.

Many of the anxieties that we experience in our society come from a place where we do not feel safe and secure. God is our strong tower! We can rest assured that safety is found in the borders of His love. What father wouldn’t have a heart to protect his children?

God is the perfect Father and promises to be there for us…as a fortress that we can depend on for shelter.  When I think of this promise, I feel peace in my heart knowing that I have a safe place where I can go, and so do you!

WISDOM THAT WORKS

 POOR CREDIT RISKS – Rev. Bob Stevenson

”The world’s poorest credit risk is the man who agrees to pay a strangers debts”.

Read: Proverbs 27.-13

Today’s Proverb makes the parable of the Good Samaritan even more amazing to |me, I have always marvelled at this Bible story of the unbelievable kindness and generosity of the Samaritan man He not only helped at traveller in distress, but was prepared to pay whatever it took to see this unfortunate man back on his feet (See Luke 10 30-37)

I was always under the impression that the main thrust of this parable was the triumph of compassion over religious prejudice but this proverb has given me an added insight. Not only can you be religiously bigoted as racially prejudiced but you can actually have the support of the very word of God, as our proverb for today points out, and use it to over-ride a heart of compassion

The Samaritan did the very opposite with Old Testament scripture Even if the religious scribe and priest had allow pity to extend to one so incapable of helping himself l doubt if they would have rash as to say they would pay another man’s debt

If your heart of compassion makes you susceptible to some financial loss, go with your heart every time. After all, its only money you can lose, but your kindness will pay rich dividends.

QUOTES TO NOTE – Henry Ward Beecher

The soul without imagination is what an observatory would be without a telescope.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

AN EVIL DOER – 1 Samuel 22: 6-23

We live in an evil world that is manipulated by the powers of evil under the rule and inspiration of Satan. Regrettably people become the tools of wickedness and allow themselves to be used to perform many atrocious acts. Even today, we see a birth of people who are perpetrators of awful deeds that bring pain, ruin, disaster and death to countless numbers. One of the mysteries of life is the manifestation of these people that produce so much harm and havoc.

In these two chapters we have the revelation of a man by the name of Doeg an Edomite who was prepared to play informer and murderer to comply with the wishes of Saul. The consequence of his foul word and work was that 85 priests of the Lord experienced death at his hands. There was nothing merciful in Doeg or Saul as they destroyed these holy men. The historical record does them no credit, but highlights their rottenness and wicked conduct for all to note.

One must not permit evil in any way to exist and operate in our beings because of what it is capable of producing. Once it has obtained a foothold there is no telling what the ultimate will be. Avoid at all costs the spirit and way of sin and evil because it brings untold harm to others and finally to the evildoer. God will judge all sinners on the Judgment Day; therefore, evil will be seen to be not a profitable procedure. It is not wise to go the way of evil men because there is the inevitable consequence of divine judgment.
