Daily Nugget



  Today's cherished nugget from guest blogger, Pastor Bill.
“God doesn’t care so much about being analyzed. Mainly, he wants to be loved” (Philip Yancey).

Our society wants us to learn about and recognize God only if He fits into our pattern, our lifestyle. Strangely enough, no matter how much we know about God in our minds, we will miss Him if we do not receive His love and enter into a personal relationship with Him.  The apostle Paul reminds us:
“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (I Corinthians 2:14).

God, forgive me where I have tried to "figure" You out. I want just to love You because You loved me first. Amen.

Daily Nugget



Today's cherished nugget from guest blogger, Pastor Bill.
"Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather” (John Ruskin).

We can complain about the weather, or give thanks to God who sent it. There will usually be fifty percent in either choice.  Many need and want the rain, and others have something to do that is dependent on a clear dry day.  Rather than complaining, we should remember the message of the writer of Psalms 105:1 who says, “O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.”

God, thank You for today’s rain, tomorrow’s sunshine, yesterday’s winds, and last month’s frost. Thank You for the variety You bring to our lives.  Amen.

Daily Nugget



    Today's cherished nugget from guest blogger, Pastor Bill.
Spurgeon, that great prince of preachers, was once staying at an inn in one of the valleys of northern Italy where the floor was dreadfully dirty.
“I had it in my mind to advise the lady to scrub it,” said Spurgeon, “but when I perceived it was made of dirt, I reflected that the more she scrubbed the worse it would be.”
Just so, God knew that there could be no improvement of the corrupt nature of man except through faith in His Son. No matter how much we try, our best will never be good enough to deserve the relationship with God that He freely gives us.
The writer of Isaiah 64:6 puts our works into perspective with these words: “We are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags.” The good news is found in Isaiah 1:18: “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”
God, thank You for cleaning us as only You can. Amen.
Bro. Bill

Yahweh, Day 150



 
Day 150, Yahweh: The Challenge Issued
 "Let them come and tell us what will happen. Tell us the past events, so that we may reflect on it and know the outcome. Or tell us the future. 23 Tell us the coming events, then we will know that you are gods."
Isaiah 41:22-23 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
For those that desire to command the allegiance of humanity comes this challenge from The Creator of humanity. It is a simple and straight challenge.
"Tell us now ... exactly what does the future hold?  And ... when will it happen?"
Rest assured … many have tried to accept the challenge … and of course failed.  Contrast our Bible where Yahweh has revealed the future with exact certainty.  This, because Yahweh dwells in eternity and is not limited by “time” such as are we.
This is in The Name.
Intercessory Prayer:  Oh Father!  Your vastness and expanse is beyond our conception … as is Your wisdom.  We praise You for sharing Yourself with us … for Your Name’s sake.  In Jesus Name.  Amen.

Yahweh, Day 149



 
Day 149, Yahweh: The Name... Sovereign Of Time
"I am Yahweh, that is My name; I will not give My glory to another, or My praise to idols."
Isaiah 42:8 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
Now we move into this aspect of God's very character of not just majesty ... but now we will see and understand His ... sovereignty ... not simply over the majesty of creation as it's creator ... but sovereign over creation and man's …destiny.
For the next several days we will study these first 8 verses as Yahweh reveals these intimate truths ... of Himself ... for all to behold.
This is in The Name.
