Psalm 107:27-30

Was there ever a year like that year?

That was the year the Uncle, who was the closest to a father in my life, died. That was the year Robin and Jim were taken from us.

I joined the circle with only about a dozen others; we had gathered to pray. I listened to the heartfelt prayers being offered for the darkest places and most dangerous strongholds on the planet. As I thrilled to the audacity of humble believers approaching the Throne Room of the Most High Sovereign God with phenomenal requests, the Lord gave me a special thought.

For God so loved the world .....

The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every imagination and intention of all human thinking was only evil continually (Genesis 6:5).

(John 6:23) They came to the place where they ate the bread after the Lord had given thanks.

Do you find these words curious, rather an unusual way to phrase it? If we had written it, wouldn't we have said, "The place where Jesus fed the 5000?"

As I was preparing a Bible Study on the Antichrist, a thought struck me which had nothing to do with prophecy. As Satan's mouthpiece, Antichrist utters the ultimate in deliberate disbelief and irreverence, with a total disregard for any god because (Daniel 11:36-37), he magnifies himself above all. I began to get a sense of the horrible pride and malignant blasphemy of this dictator. As I was thinking about this, I saw something I had never seen before. It came to me as a question.

I need to daily remind myself about BEING what I've BECOME --- a Christian.

I look at the Life the Lord Jesus lived and I remember that He said, "I can of My own self do nothing. The Father Who lives in Me, He does the work." (Jn.5:30, 14:10) This was the principle He lived by and it was effective because of the attitude He adopted.

In a natural way of thinking, (that is - when a problem arises, seek a solution then), I would have thought that because sin came into the world, God then provided a Saviour. But that's not the way it was. There was a Saviour before there was sin, before there was a world as we know it.

I hope you won't mind my sharing something very personal with you. Perhaps it may strike a responsive chord with a similar highway in your heart.

One of my favourite verses (and my chief desire has been lingering in my meditations and causing me to more persistently explore its treasure.

Busy days ... hectic days ... so much clamour ... so many voices.

We know (John 1:18) that the beloved Son of God is in the bosom - in the heart - in the intimate Presence of the Father. But do we realize that because we are accepted in the Beloved (Ephesians 1:6), accepted just as He is accepted, that is exactly where we are? We talk a lot about the love of God but are we wrapped in the safe security of its warm enfolding? We need to get beyond our (so often cold and dry) head-knowledge truth, and deeply experience in our emotions the precious, personal, encompassing love of the Father-heart of God for each one of us INDIVIDUALLY.

Perhaps you have never had difficulty with this particular verse but (Genesis 3:10) had always puzzled me, where Adam said he was afraid because he was naked.

If he'd said he was afraid because he had eaten the fruit or because he had sinned, I could have understood it but I couldn't understand why he was afraid because he was naked. Hadn't he always been naked? This was particularly in my mind in connection with an adult class I had to teach and I asked the Lord to show me the meaning because I had a deep sense that there was something very significant in that verse.
