“….From my mother’s womb you have been my God…All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations will bow down before him, for dominion belongs to the Lord and he rules over the nations…. future generations will be told about the Lord. They will proclaim his righteousness to a people yet unborn for HE has done it”. Psalm 22: 10b,27,28,30,31
We ponder the promises of YOUR WORD.
YOU know our beginnings.
YOU know our doubts and fears.
YOU know the outcome of every day.
Generations who have lived before us found their way to true faith by Grace.
The journey to the CROSS is the way through life’s mountains and valleys.
A pilgrim’s faith is born there.
It is the place where we first meet grace, the Divine equipping to live for YOU.
Freely given, freely received– it is our gift.
Our lives have book ends.
It is life in between… ah, that’s the rub.
Sin seeks to swallow us.
Salvation saves us from destruction.
Seekers need resuscitating.
Being made clean is the work YOU bring to us through confession.
Being filled up with hope is the the work of the Holy Spirit.
Being made ready to serve with abandoned love is the work of a surrendered heart.
Eating at YOUR TABLE replenishes the soul for YOUR WORD never returns void.
How then shall we live?
We must find our way to YOU every day by Grace.
We take our place in the long line of sojourners of Christ Jesus who found HIM everywhere in All things and in All places.
How do we know this?
They have left behind a record of His sufficiency and Grace.
John Bunyan found it in a prison.
Amy Carmichael found it in ministry on the shores of India.
Derick Bingham found in the pages of English literature.
Have you found it?
Where will God send you?
What will you leave behind?
When will you grasp the calling He has ordained for you?
All the ends of the earth will remember… and turn..
The families of nations will bow down.
We rest under His dominion….
Under His Sovereign rule there is intimacy and strength for the next step.
Our faith journey matters.
Our world watches what we value.
We must live His life out with action born of devotion.
We must serve Him with courage, justice, faith and honor.
We must proclaim His righteousness to a people yet unborn.
Therefore… we must care about the unborn, the weakest for they are the future of the long line of grace.
Purpose to take your place in this line.
Ask God to order your way.
HE ‘s faitfhul.
HE loves you.
HE knows you.
Do you know HIM?
Fellow pilgrim, join me.
