Always Thank God

 

2 Thessalonians 1:3

We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is met, because that your faith grows exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other abounded.

What of Today’s Verse…

“Increase my faith, O, Lord.” “Increase my strength.” “Increase my wisdom.” We often pray for these things, but when is the last time you thanked God for your love increasing? Can you think of anything more exciting to say about your church than to say, “The love every one of you has for each other is increasing.” Let us pray and act to make it so!

Let us Pray:

Holy God, may your love so fill me that I can fully share love with those I meet each day. May this love grow and increase in me so that others may readily see its benefits and recognize that it is a direct response to the lavish love you have shared with me. Through the power of your Spirit, help my love increase! In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.

Words of Wisdom

The Bible’s Supreme Place

Yes, a true love for the great Book will bring us great peace from the great God and be a great protection to us. Let us live constantly in the society of the law of the Lord, and it will breed in our hearts restfulness such as nothing else can. The Holy Spirit acts as a Comforter through the Word and sheds abroad those benign influences, which calm the tempests of the soul.

Nothing is an obstacle to the man who has the Word of God dwelling in him richly. He takes up his daily cross, and it becomes a delight. For the fiery trial, he is prepared and counts it not strange, so as to be utterly cast down by it. He is neither stumbled by prosperity—as so many are—nor crushed by adversity—as others have been—for he lives beyond the changing circumstances of external life. When his Lord puts before him some great mystery of the faith which makes others cry, “This is an hard saying; who can hear it?” the believer accepts it without question; for his intellectual difficulties are overcome by his reverent awe of the law of the Lord, which is to him the supreme authority to which he joyfully bows. Lord, work in us this love, this peace, this rest, this day.

Great peace has they, which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them. Psalm 119:165
