DAY 29 IN THE APP
THIS WEEKS MEMORY VERSE
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.” ~Isaiah 55:8-9
A FEW THOUGHTS...
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths." Proverbs 3:5-6
"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work." Though many of the arguments used by Job's friends were incorrect and should not be used doctrinally, they can still be used to show the flaw in human reasoning. We are about to get to one of the most amazing sections of Scripture when God, Himself, describes in detail portions of His creation in greater detail than He did in Genesis. Jesus said in Matthew 6:33-34, "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble." Elihu said in Job 36:24, "Remember to magnify His work, Of which men have sung." We would do well to heed that advice everywhere and at every time.
In this life the journey is important. Going through the Bible that first time and then throughout my life has helped me place this in a better perspective. God has given me this day by His grace. I don't want to waste this gift in anticipation of a future day that there is no guarantee that I will even see. May we never forget that God has chosen to give us this day for a reason. May we not waste it. Rushing through today in anticipation of tomorrow or the weekend or vacation simply robs us of today's joy and potential opportunities. How often do we miss the opportunity to share with someone in our present sphere and circumstance simply because our minds are elsewhere?
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
"The answer to our dilemma is not a new revelation from heaven. The answer is seeking the old paths and digging out the old wells which superior knowledge, human pride and flat disobedience have stopped up." - Leonard Ranvenhill
