Today: On the same page with God?
Passage: Psalm 121, Prov 8
5 The LORD watches over you— the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.
7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life;
8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. (Ps 121, NIV 84)
Psalm 91 is a psalm we cherish so much; it talks about our protection /covering in God; It is only when we really take refuge in God that we are safe
Any other attempts to be smarter than that are only less secure
In the scripture above, psalmist talks about protection by day and by night
Sometimes, we wonder why they use certain signs to denote day and night
When I saw them using a crescent with a star inside it to denote night time (in the phone), I was wondering why
Jesus is the morning star of hope; He is on His way
The word of God is the most updated book ever. You don’t need an update for God’s word, ever. The only problem is our ignorance of the word
God is our guide, our savior, an ever present help in trouble
We live in a world of confusion. People are confused about so many things. Many are also getting cheated, because of false prophets and preachers who offer a “fix” or solution to their problems
The most important thing is our relationship with God and discernment
If we are not on the same page with God, we won’t understand anything He is saying. That is what is happening to many. We have been hearing so many messages all these years, but only little change did it bring to us
The Eunuch in Acts 8 was willing to learn and act; he understood the interpretation of the word from Philip, and immediately obeyed
James, in his epistle encourages us to be doers of the word, that just hearers
We like to hear/receive as much as we can, and respond as less as we can!
Simply reading and forgetting, like we read this message, won’t do any God
We need to respond. Work it out. Try it out
That is when the blessings of psalm 91 and 121 becomes ours
That is when “all things work together for good”
Have a blessed day
Prayer: Response to the message
Proverbs for today: Proverbs 8
10 Choose my instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold,
11 for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her.
12 “I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence; I possess knowledge and discretion.
13 To fear the LORD is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech.
