Today: It’s time to know Him better!
Passage: Psalm 18
7 The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook;
they trembled because he was angry. 8 Smoke rose from his nostrils;
consuming fire came from his mouth, burning coals blazed out of it.
9 He parted the heavens and came down; dark clouds were under his feet. (Psalm 18, NIV 84)
Yesterday, the President was in town; that was all in the radio
When God comes to us, it will make a difference
On the day of Pentecost, God came down and the place shook; there was “fire” that appeared there
Only those who were ready and expecting God, knew it!
When Jesus came to the earth, he did not make a big noise; but Heaven declared it to some, just a few!
As things happen around us today, those who know the Lord know what is going on. It is the reverberations of His coming….
You know how you feel when a plane lands
The most precious thing is not money, but time; once gone, it is gone!
Throughout the Bible, we see many instances when we are warned to make the best use of every moment we have
Find out those “culprits” that steal our time, and stay away from it
Engage in something where you can use your time wisely and more effectively
We need some goals like studying a book of the Bible or reading a book/writing..
It is even worth getting a small laptop if you get lot of time at your disposal, during the day
If you drive for an hour or more, you can get Bible CD’s or something like that
We spent our money for so many things; how much we spent for good things?
There are so many of our friends who need someone to talk to them or pray
Some of the people I talk with tell me that the Bible is not enough or is incomplete! That tells me that many don’t know the Bible as they should!
Many of us don’t even know the people in our own family, as we should!
We don’t know the people we work with, as we should…!
We don’t know Jesus as we should; do we?
Apostle Paul says so; maybe we have “graduated” already!
10 I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, 11 and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead. (Phil 3, NIV 84)
Let us get to know Him more and more, day after day
Stay blessed, as you do that
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I want to know you more and more. I admit my ignorance and the fact that I was not taking time to know you more, through prayer or meditating your word. Help me to do that more and more these days. Amen.
