A GOLDEN PROMISE from the Bible

A Daily Promise

 

IN A TEMPEST

That is how you may sense things are at the moment for you. Everything appears to be falling apart and inwardly you are in turmoil. An utter state of restlessness and faithlessness exists. What can you do? Who can you turn to? Paul was on the Adriatic waters and for three days and nights there was a relentless, horrendous storm. It did not look as if any one board that ship would make it. But an angel came to him and assured that no one would be lost. The word of promise was given unto him saying: “Do not be afraid, Paul, you must be brought before Caesar; and indeed God has granted you all those who sail with you”. His response to the message: “I believe God that it will be just as it was told me” – Acts27: 24, 25. So today friend: the Lord is in control when things are bad and would assure you that you will come out of the threatening conditions you are in. You will be wonderfully saved and the word of the Lord will come to pass in your case. Hold on to the promise!

Thought for the Day

CAUTION

Occasions arise that call for caution, watchfulness and care in the busy thoroughfare of life. Things are occurring constantly and some of these factors do have latent dangers that must be avoided. So make certain that you maintain a balanced mind so that you are really cognisant of what is really taking place and can act wisely.. You must not suddenly be overwhelmed by events or experiences that you find you ill-prepared for and unable to cope with. Learn to pull aside and off so that you truly assess where you are and the full force of what you are to deal with so that no mistakes occur. Vigilance is aided by prudence which together they enable you to make the right choices and move ahead into that which is worthwhile and rewarding. Have a blessed day!

QUOTES TO NOTE – C.S. Lewis

It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A SOLEMN WARNING – 1 Kings 13: 1-10

How amazing to read of the grace of God towards this man in spite of this appalling wickedness! He could have easily and speedily removed him from office and from life’s scene; instead, he chose to give a solemn warning through a supernatural word and encounter. A man of God is dispatched with a message to let the king know beyond doubt of the evil of his doings. He appears right at the place where the monarch is at the altar with solemn declaration.

He first pronounces judgment on the leadership that is and will be involved at the altar in unholy worship by affirming that one of David’s line will see to it that their bones will be burnt on it – v2. The token of this would be in the immediate rending of the altar and the pouring out of the ashes. This indicated the displeasure of the Lord and showed what he thought of it. Jeroboam would have attacked the divine messenger but his hand is paralyzed and he becomes a victim of judgment. He appeals for its restoration and God in grace effects its healing. All of this was a solemn and serious warning and should have been heeded.

When the Lord gives a definite course of action, extreme care must be taken that there is no deviation from it. Even seemingly good people can take of the track that God has appointed. We must never act in a way that provokes the Lord to act in judgment against us. Having tasted the riches of His favour we must make it our daily business to conform to His ways so that we may reap much more of His kindness. If we do suffer His judgment, then we must have the good sense to repent and make amends so that it is not wasted on us. His love will not permit us to keep sinning.
