A People Yet To Be

This will be written for the generation to come, That a people yet to be created may praise the LORD” – Psa. 102:18

Point our children toward faith in meaningful ways.

God’s Jewels

They shall be Mine on the day that I make them My jewels. And I will spare them As a man spares his own son who serves him.” – God (Mal. 3:17)

Who is God speaking of as His “jewels?” Redeemed sinners.

Secretly Shooting the Upright

The wicked bend their bow, They make ready their arrow on the string, That they may shoot secretly at the upright in heart.” – Psa. 11:2

This is Satan’s cowardly tactic: he shoots his arrows SECRETLY.

David counters these attacks with some incredible facts about God. (11:4-7)

That’s how David is able to write, “In the Lord I put my trust.” (11:1)

Wait On the Lord

Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!” Psalm 27:14

God is always on time. His timing is perfect.

Will we ever learn this?

They came to Him from every quarter

They came to Him from every quarter.”— Mark 1:45

People of all types came to Jesus from every direction. Their paths were different, but their center was the same.

Still true today.

I refer you to Spurgeon’s wonderful sermon, “Gathering to the centre.

My Hope Is In Thee

And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in Thee.” – Psa. 39:7

All our hopes hang upon Him.

Thy Word Hath Quickened Me

This is my comfort in my affliction: for Thy word hath quickened me.” – Psa. 119:50

God’s word will resuscitate you, bring you back from the dead, and revive you.

Through God We Live

“yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.” – 1 Cor. 8:6

It is through the Lord Jesus Christ that we live.

I Bow My Knees

“For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,” – Eph. 3:14

To whom do you bow your knees?

Faith Is Accounted For Righteousness

“But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness,” – Rom. 4:5

The person who’s faith is accounted for righteousness is the person who does not lean on his or her own works, but rather, who relies solely on God.

God is the one who justifies the sinner, not the sinner’s actions or accomplishments.

It’s not based on us, but Him.
