The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

He Will Never Fail You

When life seems empty
and there’s no place to go,
When your heart is troubled
and your spirits are low
When friends seem few and nobody cares
There is always God to hear your prayers.
So go to our Father when
troubles assail you,
For His grace is sufficient
and He’ll never fail you.
Helen Steiner Rice

God’s Mirror

“We are good at confessing other people’s sins, but if it is true repentance, we shall have as much as we can do to look after our own. When a man or woman gets a good look into God’s mirror, the Bible, he is not finding fault with other people; he is fully occupied at home.” – D. L. Moody

“My Lord And My God”

“Thomas answered and said to Him, ‘My Lord and my God!'” John 20:28 (NASB)
Jesus turned to Thomas and encouraged him to touch the scars in His hands and side. There is no indication that Thomas did so. To see Jesus was enough. And Thomas spoke the greatest confession found in the New Testament: “My Lord and my God!”
Thomas had come to believe that Jesus was alive; even more, that Jesus was divine. He was God. There is no deeper understanding than to realize that this One who had become flesh and lived among other human beings was not only human but shared the same nature as the Father Himself. Meeting the risen Lord enabled Thomas to make this confession. And this is the confession that all people need to make.
Jesus commended Thomas for his confession, but He knew that people in future generations would not have the same privilege of seeing the risen Lord with physical eyes. Others would have to believe without seeing. And God makes it possible for people to meet the risen Lord in other ways than seeing Him with their physical eyes. And in meeting Him, their troubled souls are quieted, they are commissioned to work, and they confess with Thomas, “My Lord and my God.”

Grace — A love That keeps On Giving



What Time Is It By God’s Clock?

“And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.” Romans 13:11 (KJV)
What time is it? It is high time to awake out of sleep. It is time for us to be about the Father’s business–to lift up our eyes and look on the fields that are white to harvest, to see the laborers are few–and then to pray that the Lord of the harvest will send forth laborers. We need to be alert, we need to be on our toes, we need to be seeking the lost for Christ.
Present your body a living sacrifice, your members as instruments of righteousness unto God, and from this day forward go forth sowing seed that will bring forth a harvest of souls. God help us as believers to wake up and get on the job for Jesus. His coming is imminent: “Yes, I am coming quickly” (Rev.22:20).

God Loves Every One Of Us

“Though we are incomplete, God loves us completely. Though we may feel lost and without compass, God’s love encompasses us completely…
He loves everyone of us, even those who are flawed, rejected, awkward, sorrowful or broken.”
Dieter F. Uchtdorf

“This Too Shall Pass” – Helen Steiner Rice

If I can endure for this minute
Whatever is happening to me,
No matter how heavy my heart is
Or how dark the moment may be–
If I can remain calm and quiet
With all the world crashing about me,
Secure in the knowledge God loves me
When everyone else seems to doubt me–
If I can but keep on believing
What I know in my heart to be true,
That darkness will fade with the morning
And that this will pass away, too–

Then nothing in life can defeat me
For as long as this knowledge remains
I can suffer whatever is happening
For I know God will break all of the chains
That are binding me tight in the darkness
And trying to fill me with fear–
For there is no night without the dawning
And I know that my morning is near.
