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. The word is ‘assurance’ a spiritual reality to be entered into if one is to know God to live a true life and extract the best from God. In coming to know Go through His Word, Spirit and Jesus Christ, the min an heart is to be possessed with sure knowledge of truth an things that matter. Doubt and uncertainty is removed as the blessing of heavenly convictions move in an take over life.

In coming to know Go through His Word, Spirit and Jesus Christ, the min an heart is to be possessed with sure knowledge of truth an things that matter.

One of the great purpose of the Scriptures is to create and cultivate real assurance in the hearts and minds of those who relate to himself. If you are to have any positive an worthwhile relationship and dealings with Him then it is on the basis of true assurance. This is not something that you beget and build up in yourself as a result of positive thinking. It is not something of a natural acquisition but a condition of being produced by God within a person that makes them a quality believer. Even when things exist around of a negative and destructive character, they have a unique calmness an confidence wrought by a spiritual assurance..

Moses possessed it as a leader after he had met with God and was called to be Israel’s deliverer. The task assigned to him was impossible for him to perform and he needed to know God was with him to bring this about. As he appears before Pharaoh, the Israelites, the Red Sea, etc., he certainly was in need of some unique boldness an assurance. It was God who needed to be alongside to inspire an create in him this wonderful virtue. This 80 year old turned out to be one of the most outstanding leaders of all time that even Winston Churchill admired.

As you are called to a formidable assignment, do not wither or wilt at it. The important thing is to know for sure that God has personally summoned you to act on His behalf and He will stand by to assist in bringing to realisation. Yonggie Chow once stood outside Albert Hall in London not long after he had entered the Christian ministry and the Lord revealed to him that he was called to build something similar in Seoul. What a premise he saw erected for God’s glory and the promotion of the Gospel of Christ! The assurance preceded everything. So the Lord would birth such an assurance in you which is but the precedent for a big job an accomplishment

SACRED SONGS
What Though Clouds are Hovering O’er Me

This is an old favourite of mine, one that I learned soon after I was saved. To know Christ in, with and for you in life is an immense blessing. But as the song puts it: it is not just a case of heaven on earth, the best is yet to be. The great thing is His abiding presence and input on a daily basis. Enjoy the words again and refresh your memory an experience!

1/.What though clouds are hovering o’er me. And I seem to walk alone,
Longing ‘mid my care and crosses, For the joys that are now are flown,
If I’ve Jesus, ‘Jesus only,’ Then my sky will have a gem,
He’s the Sun of brightest splendour, And the Star of Bethlehem.

2/. What though my all earthly journey Bringeth naught but weary hours,
An in grasping for life’s roses, Thorns I find instead of flowers,
If I’ve Jesus, ‘Jesus only,’ I possess a cluster rare,
He’s the Gem of precious jewels an the Rose of Sharon fair.

3/. What tho’ all my heart is yearning For the lov’d of long ago,
Bitter lessons sadly learning From the shadowy page of woe,
If I’ve Jesus, ‘Jesus only,’ He’ll be with me to the end;
An, unseen by mortal vision, Angel bands will o’er me bend.

4/. When I soar to realms of glory, An an entrance I await,
If I whisper ‘Jesus only,’ Wide will ope te pearly gate
When I join the heavenly chorus An the angel hosts I see,
Precious Jesus, ‘ Jesus only,’ Will my song of rapture be.

DAILY MEDITATIONS
A PERCEPTIVE PUPIL Psalm 86

David was a keen and perceptive pupil from his earliest years. He discovered in both the formative years of his life and the remainder who the best Teacher was. The Lord was the One who became his instructor because he perceived God had the most invaluable lessons to teach. In v11 he says: “Teach me your ways, O Lord.” This shows that he knew that he needed to know from the greatest and wisest source of all the finest way to live and produce a worthwhile character and do a great work. He could do no better than come to the fount of wisdom and find out all he needed to know and have the answers that mattered.

He could neither trust himself or others to give him the guidance that he so desperately required. Men were subject to making serious mistakes and errors that could prove disastrous. Not so the Lord: His knowledge, judgment and wisdom were perfect, absolute, true and could be fully relied upon. He had perceived that when he followed out His instructions and directions he found out they yielded the maximum good. There was no other that could serve Him to highest advantage.

We are all in life’s schoolroom and the Lord wills to be our Teacher in everything. He is most capable because He is omniscient, which means He possesses infinite, perfect and absolute knowledge. You need to learn as quickly as possible that the Lord desires to be your principal Mentor and that throughout life He has lessons of the greatest order to impart into your mind, heart and experience. Wise people turn and listen to what He always has to say thus they are richly and eternally benefited. Seek His direction today and discover He has things to teach you of worth.
