At this time of year, many suffer with tensions of Stress, Depression, and Loneliness, in addition to feeling like everything depends upon you. And yet, this time of the year, we should be rejoicing and giving thanks for the ultimate, unsurpassed gift that has ever been given to man. And of all the ample possessions we have to be thankful for how sad that we are so weighed down and too busy for what is most important! Let us not miss out on giving our Creator God the blessing He deserves, Since . . .
All of Creation is Shouting there is a God!
- Through Natural Revelation, God reveals Himself to the entire world: Day to Day, Night after Night! God is made known to the world “without words.” The sun runs its course, rising and setting – all of creation witnesses to the fact that there is a Creator God.
- Through Special Revelation, God’s Word: we are told of the power that is sufficient to restore a soul; a soul can be revived from desolation and doom. We can trust God’s Word with our whole lives. God’s written Word – His special revelation to us – gives insight into living, fittingly. We can rejoice in the instructions given and find joy in living a restored life, because God’s Word lacks nothing! It is perfect!
God’s Word has great Value –
- It is the greatest treasure
- It is the greatest protection
- It is the greatest profit or reward
- It is the greatest purifier
For the greatest return on your day: Make time for His Word EVERYDAY. Do NOT allow schedules or duties to thwart what will bring the greatest benefit to your soul!
The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands. Day to day pours forth speech, And night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words; Their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, And their utterances to the end of the world. In them He has placed a tent for the sun, which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber; It rejoices as a strong man to run his course. Its rising is from one end of the heavens, and its circuit to the other end of them; And there is nothing hidden from its heat. The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the LORD are true; they are righteous altogether. They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover, by them Your servant is warned; In keeping them there is great reward. Who can discern his errors? Acquit me of hidden faults. Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous sins; Let them not rule over me; Then I will be blameless, And I shall be acquitted of great transgression.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.Psalm 19, NASB
