A GOLDEN PROMISE from the Bible

A Daily Promise

 

PROSPECTS ARE GOOD

Paul wrote to the Christians at Philippi in words to show them that their prospects were really good because they were being inspired and handled by the Lord. He said: “He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ” – Philippians 1:6. He knew that Christ does not start something He cannot bring to a satisfactory conclusion. He perfectly fulfilled all the Father’s expectations when He became a man and He is able to re-produce the same in those who become His disciples. So you are in good hands! His omniscient eye is ever upon you for good and His grace and power is always at your disposal to bring about the best and worthiest results. There is no need for you to be unduly worried about your tomorrows or yourself because you are in the best hands possible. At the finish, both He and you will be thoroughly pleased with what has been accomplished

Thought for the Day

BLESSED

The word ‘blessed’ simply means to be done good to. The LORD is the Blessed One who has the ability to bless His creation and creatures in an incredible, continuous and increasing fashion. Having renewed this planet in every way and blessed it in every degree (Genesis 1), He also created mankind with this in mind. It states “And God blessed them  . . .” – v28. There has been no change in this. In calling Abram, this is what He affirmed: “I will bless you, and make your name great, and you shall be a blessing . . “ (Genesis 12: , 3,4) He accepted this guarantee and entered into it. He is but an example and  the LORD desires to bless you, too. In sending and giving you Christ, the Blessed One, in and through Him you are to be blessed now and eternally. So why not enjoy your favoured and privilege state. You are now among ‘the blessed ones!’

QUOTES TO NOTE – Alfred Lord Tennyson

Who is wise in love, love most, say least.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A SENSELESS DECISION – 1 Kings 12

The initial act of Rehoboam on becoming king looked to be a wise procedure as he appears to be making the right move. Before he does anything he seeks the help and expertise of others as he assumes a major responsibility. One would commend him for taking this kind of step. The Bible affirms that “in the multitude of counsellors is wisdom”, and so one would imagine that in taking on this new role he needed to know the best and wise step to take next in governing God’s people. He seeks both old and young for their views and judgement. There was nothing wrong in this provided he weighed everything up aright and discerned the finest course of procedure.

Regrettably he did not heed the counsel of the older men and the people but forsook the counsel they offered. In pride and arrogance he rejected their sensible directives and embraced the foolish words of the young men. Instead of showing signs of grace, understanding and tolerance he adopted a brutal and shameful attitude that promoted a senseless decision that would bring about an awful division. He would lose not only the good will of many; he lost their allegiance and help. There would be an awful price to pay for such wilful conduct.

It could be that we are in a situation where we have to make some important decisions and we are not too certain as to what to do. Of course, we need to pray and seek God’s guidance but that guidance may come through other people. The Lord is able to commission someone or even a body of people to sound the right word and policy into our affairs and we must be very sensitive to what is right and good. Making the correct choice and taking the best route is vital to your welfare.
