GOD REMEMBERS!

My friend and I were speaking each to the other about this thing of “old age and its accompaniment”.  We agreed on a number of “episodes” but we also agreed we could not remember some of the details of others for which we “purposefully” had placed in the cupboard of forgetfulness.  Because of our differenceContinue reading “GOD REMEMBERS!”

THE FUTILITY OF WORRY!

Used with Permission by, Linda DeSilva             Worry is an exercise in futility.  It accomplishes nothing – except to engender even greater anxiety.  Yet, in this pandemic, many (if not most) of us are setting ourselves up for more trouble by our fears for the future.  This should not be so for the Christian.  “WorryContinue reading “THE FUTILITY OF WORRY!”

“BUT GOD …”

(When God intervened) Used with Permission by, Linda DeSilva Looking through my library, the book-title “BUT GOD …” by Tony Bennett (pub. DAYONE – 2016) reminded me of the relevance of these two words in today’s uncertain world.  I leafed through the chapter titles. The graphic studies of the Bible characters to whom these twoContinue reading ““BUT GOD …””

NAHUM, WHO?

Nahum was “unknown”, except that you could not help but wonder why the meaning of his name: consolation.  Another anomaly may catch our attention, that being he was from Elkosh.  (That was possibly, Capernaum.)  Having stood on some of the ruins of Capernaum, probably makes me a “little proud”, forgive me, for it was supposedlyContinue reading “NAHUM, WHO?”

GOD USES UNUSUAL PEOPLE

He has such a personality, and his ability to communicate is beyond the normal; wow!”  You meet another who you are convinced: “What a “nice” individual!  However, I doubt that he or she will get far in life.” Try reading Exodus 3:13, 14 “But Moses said to God, ‘Who am I, that I should goContinue reading “GOD USES UNUSUAL PEOPLE”

GOD HAS SPOKEN

The Book of Hebrews is particularly written to Hebrews, yet it unfolds truths that are equally important for every Christian.  There are always those who like to argue concerning authorship, or some portion of its contents.  However, as we read its contents and interpret them in light of the other books of the Bible, weContinue reading “GOD HAS SPOKEN”

IN DUST AND ASHES

Just try to imagine how distraught Job must have felt after this confrontation. The Book of Job is believed to probably be the oldest Book of recorded Scripture!  Not being one of those intellectual giants of academy, I must find it within myself to be satisfied with their conclusions. Recall the story of Job!  HeContinue reading “IN DUST AND ASHES”

THINGS AT THEIR WORST

What we discover is that David has the assurance that what is about to take place is God’s intercession. We all are faced with situations that seem to be the worst ever.  In all probability David found himself immersed in situation of this nature.  Absalom, his son, was attempting to remove David as king, andContinue reading “THINGS AT THEIR WORST”

HE IS SEEKING YOU

Is it possible that you have been unaware that God is seeking you?  Some may have an idea about God, whereas there is not a comprehension of that personal and intimate relationship that can be established.  It is to that end that we address some thoughts from the Gospel of Luke, chapter 15. Doctor LukeContinue reading “HE IS SEEKING YOU”

SUFFICIENT GRACE

Life seems so complicated at times.  We present our requests to God, and the next thing we encounter is a complicity of negative experiences!  Sometimes it may only be one, but nevertheless, it is there staring me straight in the face; an accident, a death, a financial downfall, sickness, a family break-up—the list is impossibleContinue reading “SUFFICIENT GRACE”
