Verses for Meditation, 5/26/22

“Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
    and he delivered them from their distress.
He led them by a straight way
    to a city where they could settle.
Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
    and his wonderful deeds for mankind,
for he satisfies the thirsty
    and fills the hungry with good things.

43 Let the one who is wise heed these things
    and ponder the loving deeds of the Lord.
” Psalm 107:6-9 and 43 NIV Read full chapter

Quote of the Week, 5/25/22

When we have rejected the doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture, we allow Christians to depend on things other than the Bible as their guide to matters of life and faith. In particular, people begin to depend upon mysticism, upon ways of supposedly knowing God apart from the Bible. They look inward for intrinsic wisdom rather than outward to the Bible for its extrinsic wisdom. They forsake biblical reason in favor of feelings, voices, visions, or other subjective means of supposedly knowing God. This is a deadly error, for spiritual discernment must be founded upon God’s objective revelation of himself in Scripture. We can only judge between what is wrong and what is right when we know what God says to be true. We can know this only from Scripture.”

Tuesday’s Verse, 5/24/22

“Blessed is the one
    who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
    or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
    and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
    which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
    whatever they do prospers.” Psalm 1:1-3 NIV Read full chapter

My Life Is In God’s Hands

On September 11, 2001, Pilot Steve Scheibner was packed and ready to fly out of Boston on American Airlines Flight 11 to Los Angeles.  But at the last minute, another pilot, First Officer Thomas McGuinness, was assigned the flight instead.

Imagine the emotional impact on Scheibner when he realized that the plane he should have been flying, had just flown into the World Trade Center’s North Tower. Had God spared his life?

The Bible says our lives are not our own. Consider these Scriptures.

Lord, I know that people’s lives are not their own; it is not for them to direct their steps.”  Jeremiah 10:23,

“But I trust in you, Lord I say, “You are my God. My times are in your hands…” Psalm 31:14 & 15

“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” Proverbs 19:21

If you ever survived something that you know you shouldn’t have survived, you may feel the same way as Steve Scheibner. You may understand that you are here because God has more for you to do.

There were other passengers who missed flight 11 that day. Some changed their plans at the last minute. Others just didn’t get to the airport in time. Were they forever changed? Did they find their purpose?

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10

When we stand before our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, may we hear these coveted words, “Well done, good and faithful servant!” Matthew 25:23

This is Steve Scheibner’s amazing testimony:

Verses for Meditation, 5/19/22

“Every young man who listens to me and obeys my instructions will be given wisdom and good sense. Yes, if you want better insight and discernment, and are searching for them as you would for lost money or hidden treasure, then wisdom will be given you and knowledge of God himself; you will soon learn the importance of reverence for the Lord and of trusting him.” Proverbs 2:1-5 TLB

Quote of the Week, 5/18/22

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to selfishness; From selfishness to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage.”

Alexander Fraser Tytler (1747 – 1813)  was a Scottish advocate, judge, writer and historian who was a Professor of Universal History, and Greek and Roman Antiquities at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland.

I found this quote in Dr. David Jeremiah’s excellent book, Is This the End? It’s certainly something to think about.

“Who is a God like you,
    who pardons sin and forgives the transgression
    of the remnant of his inheritance?
You do not stay angry forever

    you will tread our sins underfoot
    and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.” Micah 7:18-19 NIV Read full chapter
