God Will Be With Us

 

Psalm 90:2, 4

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou had formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.  For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

What of Today’s Verse…

So many things about our lives are uncertain.  This one thing, however, is sure: no matter where, when, or how long, God will be there and will be with us.

Let us Pray:

Everlasting Father, I find great comfort in knowing that I cannot be in a place or time where you are not.  Stir my courage through your Spirit that I may be bolder, by your power and presence, to share the Gospel of Jesus.  Through whom I pray.  Amen.

Words of Wisdom

We Receive as We Give

It is not meet that the man who will not forgive should be forgiven, nor shall he who will not give to the poor have his own wants relieved.  God will measure to us with our own bushels, and those who have been hard masters and hard creditors will find that the Lord will deal hardly with them.  “He shall have judgment without mercy, that has showed no mercy.”

This day let us try to give and to forgive.  Let us mind the two bears-bear and forbear.  Let us be kind, gentle, and tender.  Let us not put harsh constructions upon men’s conduct, nor drive hard bargains, nor pick foolish quarrels, nor be difficult to please.  Surely, we wish to be blessed, and we want to obtain mercy: let us be merciful, that we may have mercy.  Let us fulfil the condition, that we may earn the beatitude.  Is it not a pleasant duty to be kind?  Is there not much more sweetness in it than in being angry and ungenerous?  Why, there is blessedness in the thing itself!  Moreover, the obtaining of mercy is a rich reward.  What but sovereign grace could suggest such a promise as this?  We are merciful to our fellow mortal in pence, and the Lord forgives us “all the debt.”

Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy.  —Matthew 5:7
