Today's Inspiration: Whoever listens to the Lord will dwell safely and will be secure without fear of evil. Proverbs 1:33. What an assurance from the Lord. Why is the Bible written in biographic form? We are not to read it that God is merciful but rather we see His mercy displayed in the lives of His people. We do not just understand that God is able to save the most wretched of men but we have a living example in Paul. Why did God place us in the Body of Christ?
Acts 2:46-47 requires us to fellowship with one another that we might be cleansed for 1 John 1:7 says that when we walk in the light of fellowship of each other we are cleansed from all sins both now and continually for Jesus is the light and when we assemble His light shines through each one of us to enlighten the darkness of our trials. When we gather in fellowship our heart is illuminated not only by each other's encouraging words or by biblical quotations but with our lives. In a fellowship we learn that faith does not fail.
Fear leads to our downfall. We need grace to bring us safe and it will be grace that one day will lead us home. This world is not our home. We are only a passerby. There are times we stop at stations to pause on the next path to take that lead us out of the tunnel.
There is a time for everything. Ecclesiastes 3:1 a time to bloom a time to prune, a time to build and a time to uproot. Where are you now? God is waiting for you at the next station to hear of your triumphs and failures. That's what life is all about. So why bother about trivial squabbles? Appreciate that God is waiting to bless you at the next station. God be praised.
Prayer: I will call upon the Lord who is worthy to be praised. So shall I be saved from my enemies. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
