Verse of the Day

November 11, 2021

Today’s Verse

LORD, why do you stay so far away? Why do you hide from people in times of trouble? – Psalm 10:1 ERV

Devotion

The psalmist begins Psalm 10 with these honest and raw questions. They are rough, direct, real. Are they disrespectful? Perhaps even condemning? Think about it for a second. What do these questions bring up in your heart?

Do you ever have thoughts like this? The questions almost seem blasphemous. You may feel ashamed of these types of questions. You may feel the same type of anxiety or frustration. The writer is troubled by the things he sees around him. Evil. Wickedness. Greed. Cursing. Lying. People benefiting from the weak and the poor. Injustice.

What an encouragement to see the following question in God’s Word. “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? We see these words in Matthew 27 as Jesus is on the cross. Through His darkest valley, Jesus kept talking to God. He asked Him a rough and honest question, one with a deep spiritual desire and love for His Father.

Eli Wiesel is a survivor of the holocaust and writer of Night, a memory of one of humanity’s darkest and most evil events. He said in one of his speeches about his Jewish faith: “One can be a Jew for God, one can be a Jew against God, but one cannot be a Jew without God.”

Even in your darkest moments, do not go without God. God hears when the world refuses to listen. And Jesus understands and went through the darkest valley for you. Please, keep asking your questions to Him and explore His words to you.

By Jos Snoep, President and CEO of Bible League International, Illinois, U.S.

Book Spotlight

Numbers: The Census of the People: The Story of the Wanderings in the Wilderness Journey

(Journey Through the Bible Book 5)

by Russell Sherrard

 

Numbers: The Census of the People

Numbers: The Census of the People

Numbers is the fourth book of the Pentateuch. It is named for the numbering of the people of Israel. However, it was known to the Jewish people as “In the Wilderness”, because it primarily tells of the forty years of wandering in the wilderness before entering the promised land. After the exodus from Egypt, the Israelites rebelled against God. Because of this rebellion, only two men of all the adults who left Egypt were to enter into the promised land of Canaan.

Weekly Devotional: Gems from Pastor Jim 11/8/2021

Send to Kindle

by Jim Hughes

CrossMatt. 10:37-39 “If you love your father or mother more than you love me, you are not worthy of being mine, or if you love your son or daughter more than me, you are not worthy of being mine. If you refuse to take up your cross and follow me, you are not worthy of being mine. If you cling to your life, you will lose it, but if you give it up for me, you will find it.”

These verses may cause you to do a double take. Jesus is laying it on the line and putting things in their proper perspective. He is declaring that our allegiance to Him is far more important than our allegiance to anyone else. He makes it very clear that if He is not more important to us than anyone or anything else, we are not worthy of being called His children.

When we consider how important our families are to us, this really challenges us to consider our love for the Lord. Do we love the Lord more than our spouses, children, parents, and siblings? Is it obvious to them and others that we do? Do we assume they know it or have we actually told them?

If we really love Christ more than anyone else, we will daily do whatever we have to do to remain faithful to Him. We will be willing to do anything for Him. We will be willing to make whatever sacrifices we need to do in order to obey Him. What we desire out of life becomes secondary to our devotion to Him. We will be willing to set aside whatever we deem important in life in order to follow Him.

If we really love Christ, we will surrender all of our life to Him. We will consider all of it His. We will abandon ourselves to His will. It is only when we do these things that we will really find ourselves. In Him alone we will discover what our lives are really all about. We will find purpose for our living. We will find what is worth living and dying for. In Christ alone we will find eternal life.

Let go of all that your life is to you and give it to the Lord. He will then make something beautiful out of it and you.

About the Author:

Jim Hughes

Spending his formative years in Ft. Wayne, IN, Jim followed the love of his life to southeast Iowa where they married and have spent the majority of their lives. Jim has pastored several churches throughout his life and has worked many years in local factories to help support his family. The father of two married adult children and one son still at home, Jim is a first-time author.

C Through Marriage came into being through many years of pastoral and life experiences. The book first took on a life of its own over 20 years ago when I sought to address the much publicized moral failures of prominent leaders in the church. In the chapter on Chasity, I include the guideliness that I developed then to protect one’s self from such failures.

I am a firm believer in order to make sense out of life you have to use much common sense. We need to get back to the basics of what has worked for many, many generations. If is isn’t broke, why try to fix it? I strive to return to the basics of what really works in all my writings.

Verse of the Day and Devotional 11/4/2021

Verse of the Day

November 4, 2021

Scripture

And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength. – Mark 12:30 NLT
 

Devotion

Jesus taught that loving God is the greatest commandment, and that the second greatest command is to love our neighbor as ourselves. Then one of the greatest questions must be “What is love?” In 1 Corinthians 13, we find a beautiful answer. Paul’s words guide our understanding of love based on God’s love for us. And we can apply that to our love for God as well as for our neighbor.

Only God will satisfy a heart, even the heart of David who was labeled a man after God’s own heart. This is the essence of what it means to love God: to be satisfied in Him. We are created to be satisfied in God, not just His gifts, but God Himself as the glorious God that He is!

Loving God includes obeying all His commands; it includes believing all His Word; and it includes thanking Him for all His gifts. But all that is overflow. The essence of loving God is admiring and enjoying all He is. This true enjoyment of God will make all our other responses glorifying to him. We all know this intuitively and we see it in Scripture. Do we feel most honored by the love of those who serve us because it is their duty, or because of a genuine satisfaction and delight from our fellowship? Our God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.

None of us has arrived at perfect satisfaction in God. I grieve often over the murmuring of my heart when I lose some earthly comfort or convenience. But I have tasted that the Lord is good. By God’s grace I now know the fountain of everlasting joy. Let’s cling to Him and experience His everlasting love that is always there for us.

Leviticus: Keep My Decrees and Follow Them

Leviticus: Keep My Decrees and Follow Them

The third book of the Pentateuch takes its name from one of the 12 sons of Jacob, Levi, whose family was chosen by God to act as priests and assistants in the Tabernacle. The book covers the national and personal laws given by God to the Jewish people regarding worship and religious activities. It contains laws regarding cleanliness, morality, ethics and hygiene which guided the Jews on a day–to–day basis and still does today. Animal sacrifice was introduced as a covering for the individual and national sins of the people.

Weekly Devotional: Gems from Pastor Jim 11/1/2021

Send to Kindle

by Jim Hughes

CrossMatt. 10:32-33 “If anyone acknowledges me publicly here on earth, I will openly acknowledge that person before my Father in heaven. But if anyone denies me here on earth,, I will deny that person before my Father in heaven.”

There is not much to say about this truth. The only issue I would raise is whether or not we are doing it. Are we proclaiming Christ or denying Him? You cannot live in a neutral zone. Your life is either reflecting Christ or it’s not. You are transparent. People see who owns you. It shows up in the way you live. Your actions and works are determined by who rules your heart. You can easily determine how healthy your soul is by taking an honest look at your life.

You will deny the Lord if you are embarrassed or ashamed of Him. Whenever you let people hinder your witness, you are more concerned about their opinions than those of Christ. You deny the Lord when it makes you uncomfortable. You deny Him because you lack a passionate love for Him. You deny Him when you fear man more than you do God. You deny the Lord when you get too busy to properly take care of your soul.

The Lord is not a badge you can put on and take off when it is convenient for you. You are either all into Him or you are not. Our witness for Christ is being noted and recorded in heaven. Do you acknowledge Him as your Savior and Lord every chance you get, or do you do it only when it’s convenient for you to do so?
