The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

Archive for April 12, 2014


“Blessed be the Lord, who has not given us to be torn by their teeth. Our soul has escaped as a bird out of the snare of the trapper; The snare is broken and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” Psalm 124:6-8 (NASB)
We cannot underestimate the power of God. We can sing the doxology because we do not face the present or the future alone.
Listen to the psalm: He will help us escape. He will help is through whatever we face. He will bring the release that we need.
It does not matter that we are weak. God has always done His best work with the vulnerable. In our weakness we discover this other grace–the power of God.
In the middle of the traumas of our lives we can sing a doxology. We sing because God will sustain us as He sustained the people of God long ago.

The Gospel According To Jesus – Part 80

“Why do you reason about these things in your hearts? Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Arise, take up your bed and walk’? But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins”–He said to the paralytic, “I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.”
Mark 2:8-11 (NKJV)
