Bible Ballistics: “BBs”#71 This Day????
A day late due to Internet trouble, but I decided to go ahead and post the BBs today. We’ve been talking about ‘daily’ living, and I must tell you—I’m not preaching at anyone but myself. Anytime we take a stand on God’s Word, the enemy will come, and we’ve been in a battle royal in regard to ‘daily’ living. It’s been a long month here at our house—with hospital dilemmas, family issues, time constraints, weariness and just getting along in the world.
I am sure that all of you have been there, are there or will be there–because we all have this life in common. But the verses that the Lord brought to me this morning as I got up to ‘conflict’ in my face (almost the first thing), was Psalm 118:24, one of my consistent rocks of support and encouragement, I hope it is for you.
“This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”
Not because it’s easy!!
Not because it’s what others are doing!!
Not even because I have to,
but because I know the God who made the day—
I am in HIS hand,
MY circumstances are in HIS hand,
MY issues are in HIS hand,
and those who are coming against me—
will face HIS hand!!!
Proverbs 3:5-8, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. 7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil. 8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.”
So??? Here’s our shot for the day—God is God of this Day, and
“The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.”
The Lord will defend against the onslaught –
whoever and whatever it may be.
