|What a blessed day we had yesterday! It was wonderful! Praise God! This morning I got up early because I didn't sleep too well, so I started reading in Psalms again. Here are just a few thoughts for the day:|
1) Ps. 101:6 "Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful" We too often look at the unfaithful, and so we stay discouraged. We need to do what David did, put our eyes upon the faithful!! That will make all of the difference. Paul told Timothy to "commit thou to faithful men". It will keep us excited to serve the LORD with those around us!!
2) SO FAR AWAY, YOU CANNOT MEASURE IT! This is how far God has put our sins away from us. In Ps. 103:12, he says it this way: "As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us." This is just what God's Word tells us and isn't it great that our sins are so far away? Praise God!!
3) INSIGHT! God's Word is the best commentary on God's Word! God gives us insight into one passage of Scripture, from another passage of Scripture! Just like in Psalms 105:18. It says of Joseph: "Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron:" Now in Genesis, we hear that Joseph was in prison, but we do not know that he had his feet bound in chains and that they hurt his feet until God tells us that in the book of Psalms. You see, God explains things in the Bible, even well after the event occurred, God gives us additional insight into the matter.
Well, got to go for today! May God bless. Pastor Mike Mutchler
