THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

Thought for the Day follows an instructive theme for everyday of the Week. We now turn our thoughts to another important factor if there is to be positive dealing with God. It is ‘communion’. This is a crucial factor if there is to be fruitful and worthwhile relation with God. Nothing of any worth will be known or accomplished without a vibrant and close accord with Him.

Communion – walking and talking with God – Gen 5: 21-24 

One man who discovered what it was to know a fantastic experience with God was a man named Enoch. The Scriptures reveal that here was a person who entered into a close association with God when he was 65 years of age and it lasted for another 300 hundred years. How greatly he was blessed and benefited as a consequence of striking up this union! Life was not to be the same here on earth because each day took on meaning and delight as God took on the role of contributing so many choice factors that made everything different and wonderful.

He was to discover even more than this that it was to conclude on earth. He found out to His great joy that God wanted Him in heaven to relate much closer and to know bigger things that would enlarge His being and future. He found out what was true below was going to take on greater significance in something more choice. It was now to be his exceeding pleasure to go on in an eternal manner discovering God in a greater way.

This is why Christ came and did what He did, to make it possible for you and everyone else to enter into a bond of fellowship with god the Father. He not came to provide forgiveness of sins but to give everyone and opportunity of  become a child of God and to enjoy the Fatherhood of God and His fellowship here on earth. The prospect could not be better, because eternity offers the joy of eternal communion that will lead on fullness of existence. Enjoy your walk with God today.

SACRED SONGS

Guide me, O Thou Great Jehovah

This hymn was really sung in Weslh valleys with great gusto to the tune Cym Rhonnda and no doubt still is voiced with great enthusiasm. It certainly is at the national Soccer and Rugby Games After all, when you contemplate the words they are a wonderful expression to God. How we do really require His guidance and providence throughput life. He is a faithful Go to all nations and generations. He who guided Israel through the wilderness will guide us until we reach our Promised Land, heaven

Author: William Williams

William Williams, called the “Watts of Wales,” was born in 1717, at Cefn-y-coed, near Llandovery, Carmarthenshire. He originally studied medicine, but abandoned it for theology. He was ordained Deacon in the Church of England, but was refused Priest’s Orders, and subsequently attached himself to the Calvinistic Methodists. For half a century he travelled in Wales, preaching the Gospel. He died in 1791. Williams composed his hymns chiefly in the Welsh language; they are still largely used by various religious bodies in the principality. Many of his hymns have appeared in English, and have been collected and published by Sedgwick. His two principal poetical works are “Hosannah to the Son of David,” and “Gloria in Excelsis.”

1/. Guide me, O thou great Jehovah, Pilgrim though this barren land;
I am weak, but thou art mighty; Hold me with thy powerful hand;
Bread of heaven, Bread of heaven,
Feed me till I want no more, Feed me till I want no more.

2/. Open now the crystal fountain, Whence the healing stream doth flow;
Let the fire and cloudy pillar Lead me all my journey through;

Strong Deliverer, Strong Deliverer.
Be thou still my Strength and Shield, Be thou still my Strength and Shield.

3/. If I tread the verge of Jordan, Bid my anxious fears subside;
Bear me through the swelling current, Land me safe on Canaan’s side;
Songs of praises, songs of praises,
I will ever give to thee, I will ever give to thee.

4/. Saviour come! We long to see Thee Long to well with Thee above;

Long to know in full communion, All the sweetness of thy love

Come Lord Jesus1 Come Lord Jesus!

Take Thy waiting people home

DAILY MEDITATIONS

ON WITH A JOB – 2 Kings 12

During his reign, Joash observed the awful state of disrepair with regard to the Temple, God’s dwelling place, and sensed the urgency to do something about it. There was a sacred job that called for attention and action. So the priest was ordered to raise the finances from the people so that this vision should be fulfilled with regard to the renewing and refurbishing of the divine sanctuary. It was certainly a honourable desire that he had in his heart and one that pleased the Lord. He had set himself to do that which was right before him, especially in this.

Unfortunately there came neglect on the part of the priests and the king was disappointed over the failure on their part to achieve this. And he inquired of the matter – v7 “Why haven’t you done anything about the Temple?” He would not let it rest until the job was done. In Haggai 1 we have a similar situation. The people had built their own homes but not a new sanctuary to the Lord. The prophet reproved them and stated if they were to know God’s blessing in a great way on them then they needed to get their priorities right.

How do you re-act to the issue of God and His House? Does He hold primary place in all of your considerations and commitments? Doing that which is right in the sight of the Lord is to be certain that He assumes foremost place and that your love for His house tops your agenda. David simply loved God’s House and did all he could to prepare for the building of the Temple – see Psalm 84. Taking care of His dwelling ensures that God will look after you and your property.
