4-38 Application for Sept 20-21, 2014 :: Proverbs 26:20

===

For lack of wood the fire goes out, and where there is no whisperer, quarreling ceases.

Proverbs 26:20

===

Here’s some good guidance towards living in peace with other people. And we know it to be true: If people would not say unnecessary negative things about other people there would be a lot more peace in our churches, our family, our workplace and our homes.

Take it heart and let it be a reminder to you today.

4-37 Application for Sept 12-14, 2014 :: Revelations 2:10

===

Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and for ten days you will have tribulation. Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life.

Revelation 2:10

===

I think these words are meant to warn us and then encourage us.

It is sobering to hear that Christians will suffer. It’s frightening to hear that some of us will be through into prison and that we’ll experience tribulation and the testing doesn’t sound like fun. Neither does “until death”.

But here we are commanded to not fear these times. And what will get us through the very dark days? The promise of a crown of life. A crown placed on our head by the God who created us.

God commands us to be faithful – all the way to this crowning. Pray that God will help us to be faithful during this journey.

Application for August 9-10, 2014 :: James 1:17

4-36 Application for Sept 6-7, 2014 :: James 1:22-24

===

But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like.

James 1:22-24

===

It’s pretty easy, isn’t it, to read your Bible, not really consider the fact that it is God’s Word, and then go about your day as if it didn’t really matter what His Word said.

So we don’t do. We hear the words, but we don’t act on them. This, of course, is very foolish. If a king (or a president, or a CEO) said something directly to us, we’d remember it. We’d probably allow it to change our actions.

But this is not a mere human talking to us. It’s the God who created us.

We should act like that’s true.

Application for August 9-10, 2014 :: James 1:17

===

I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living! Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD!

Psalm 27:13-14

===

The Psalmist has faith. He believes. He knows that God will take care of it – the dark issue, the frightening time, the evil-doer’s action.

You can believe this, as well. Be strong. Take courage. Wait for the LORD.

You will see the LORD in the land of the living.

Application for August 23-24, 2014 :: Psalm 27:4

===

One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in his temple.

Psalm 27:4

===

The Psalmist is single-minded in his desire. He wants to see God. He wants to be with God. He wants to commune with God. He wants to see God’s beauty.

Everything else is less important. Everything else is worth not if he can’t have this one thing that he asks for. To be close to God.

May be we all have such single-minded passion

Application for August 16-17, 2014 :: Psalm 27:1

===

The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

Psalm 27:1

===

It’s good to be on the right side. It’s comforting to be on the safe side.

Our God is here described as the LORD, a light, a means of salvation and a stronghold. This is who we want to worship. And if he is with us, why should we ever be afraid?

Choose Him, follow Him, worship Him.

And then fear Him and only Him.

Application for August 9-10, 2014 :: James 1:17

===
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.

James 1:17
===

Not some good gifts. Not most perfect gifts. But all good and perfect gifts are from our heavenly Father of lights.

Not a little bit of change, not some variation, but we have a God who doesn’t ever change at all.

Have you thank God for the good and perfect gifts he’s given you today?

Application for August 2-3, 2014 :: Psalm 9:9-10

===
The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you.

Psalm 9:9-10
===

In our dark moments, in our fearful moments, in our sad moments, in our doubting moments … in all of these hard times we need a stronghold. We need a safe place. We need a shelter that we can run to.

And those of us who have been blessed know the name of the One who is our stronghold. We trust Him and we will never be forsaken.

Run to Him. When Storm and War and Death come, run to Him

===

We have a God who not only promises good and amazing and impossible things, He also has the strength to make sure His promises happen.

Nothing is going to surprise Him and spoil His plans.

Application for July 19-20, 2014 :: Hebrews 1:3-4

===

He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.

Hebrews 1:3-4

===

Look at the superlative words used to describe our Lord Jesus Christ -
Radiance, Glory, Exact Imprint, Right Hand, Majesty, Superior, Excellent.

Jesus, who we worship, is God. We are wise to worship Him.

And the good news is he made purification for our sins. We should worship Him and thank Him.
