“God Has an Exciting Future for You”

Many of you reading this are either retired or getting close to retirement. You might look at the heading for this meditation and say, “O sure, He has an exciting future for me.

Most of my life is over. How could that ever be?”
Well, I want us to take a look at the life of Moses and how God used him. He was miraculously saved at birth. All baby boys were supposed to be put to death, but his mother believed God had a future for her boy so she put him in a basket that had been waterproofed and placed the basket in the reeds near the shore.

“Jesus is the Answer”

Frequently we are asked, “Aren’t all the world’s religions the same? Don’t they all lead to the same place?” While each religion may have something to say that is meaningful, they are not all the same and they certainly don’t all lead to the same place.

Recently, following a funeral, a lady followed me out to my car and asked if I thought that Jesus was the only way to heaven I said, let me tell you what Jesus said in John 14:6 —“I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except by/through Me.” Then I also added —‘Let me tell you what Peter said in Acts 4:12,’ “Neither is there salvation, in any other, for there is no other name under heaven, given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

“KNOWING GOD”

Dr. David Jeremiah recently came out with a book titled, “The God You May Not Know”. It is an excellent book and, in many ways, is a study on the attributes of God.

This meditation is not based on that book, but is a passion I have to help the people I shepherd to really know their God as intimately as possible. I am going to take us on a trip involving Psalm 139.

How Important Is What We Believe?

What we believe about God is totally important.
• We need to know Who God is and what He is like.
• We need to know What God has done and is doing.
• We need to know what He expects of us.

What is God like? I love the answer that we find in Hannah’s prayer in 1 Samuel 2:2, when she said:
“There is no one holy like the LORD;
There is no one besides You.
There is no Rock like our God.”

“The Amazing 23rd Psalm”

David grew up as a shepherd caring for his father’s sheep. I gather that in that role, he had a lot of time to reflect on the nature of God and the characteristics of sheep. It is so interesting that David pictures the LORD as his shepherd and he sees himself as one of God’s sheep.

“Praising God”

When I started school in the first grade, I had a teacher who early on decided she didn’t like me. Her name was Miss Pine. It may have been because we weren’t one of the up and coming families in the community.

Perhaps it was because our family went to church. No matter how hard I tried to please her, nothing worked. At the end of the year, on my report card, she wrote, “Passed but on probation.” That meant that when the next school year started, I would be in the second grade, but I had one month to prove I could do second grade work or else I would have to repeat the first grade.

You can be sure I did everything I could to prove myself and, at the end of that month was told I could go on with the second grade. The problem was, Miss Pine also taught the second grade. Yes, as before, she promoted me into the third grade and again, on probation.
