Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.
Psalms 5:8

Read The Bible In a Year

Thoughts For The Day

The strength of a man consists in finding out the way in which God is going, and going in that way too.

To be trusted is a greater compliment than to be loved.

The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.


Motivation For The Day

For the skeptic there remains only one consolation: if there should be such a thing as superhuman law it is administered with subhuman inefficiency.

Personal Story Of The Day

O LORD, how long shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear! even cry out unto thee of violence, and thou wilt not save! Habakkuk 1:2 References from Job 6:1-13; 7:11-21 Medical experts warn that repressed anger can cause headaches, nausea, or other health problems. Perhaps because of this, there are many who encourage people to stop bottling up their anger and to let it all out. The problem with this approach, however, is that anger can be very destructive... both to the angry person and to those around. So what are we to do with our anger, especially as Christians? Job can help us out here. Job begins his second speech by explaining why he has cried out so bitterly. When the full extent of his suffering is understood, its no wonder he has spoken rashly (6:3). He has moved from silence (Job 2), to lament (Job 3), to anger. Part of Jobs anger is no doubt in response to Eliphazs presumptuous accusations (see Job 6:1430). But more importantly, Jobs anger reflects his pain at being misunderstood and his deep confusion as to what is happening to him. Whereas he had once enjoyed Gods favor and fellowship, it now seems that Gods arrows and terrors are aimed at him (6:4). Under the crushing weight of his anguish, Job once again pleads that God might take his life. The key to understanding Jobs outburst is found in Job 6:10. Despite all that has happened and all that Job has said, he knows that he has not denied the Lord. There are several instructive observations to be made from this. First, Job communicates his anger to God. He does not turn from God or deny Him. He doesnt take out his frustrations on others. Instead, he prays that the very One whose arrows are directed at him would graciously show him mercy. Second, Job admits that he is angry with God. He does not understand what God is doing, and hes not afraid to let God know it. He doesnt pretend or try to cover his emotions. Finally, Job realizes that he cant bottle up his frustration and fear (7:11). Here we find very honest, almost accusatory, words. But, and this is essential, these words reflect Jobs heart; even in his anger, Job continues to talk to God.

Jokes Of The Day

Q: Why did the priest giggle?

A: Mass hysteria

************************************

A little boy opened the big and old family Bible with fascination, and looked at the old pages as he turned them. Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible, and he picked it up and looked at it closely. It was an old leaf from a tree that had been pressed between the pages. 'Momma, look what I found,' the boy called out. 'What have you got there, dear?' his mother asked. With astonishment in the young boy's voice, he answered: 'I think it's Adam's suit!'

************************************

A rabbi, a priest and a pastor were all in a boat together fishing. The pastor said to the others, "I think I am going to go over to that shore and sit down." So, he gets out of the boat, walks across the water and sits down on the shore. Then, the priest says to the rabbi, "I think I going to go over there to join him." So, he does the same as the pastor and sits next to him on the shore. The rabbi thinks to himself, "Well, if they can do it, so can I!" So, he climbs out of the boat, but he falls in the water. The pastor says to the priest, "Do you think we should of told him where the rocks were?"

Devotional Thoughts Of The Day

It was a dramatic story of forgiveness. In December of 2000, on the Battleship Missouri Memorial, a dozen American survivors of the attack on Pearl Harbor embraced three of the Japanese pilots who had flown attacking planes. Many thousands of their countrymen had needlessly died that day, but the time had come to move on. That moving scene is only a dim reflection of what God's grace does for us. Although we are sinful, we can be brought into a relationship with God through simple faith in Jesus. Because He died on the cross in our place, God blots out the record of our sins and makes us right with Him through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit. The Lord in His amazing love has not only forgiven us but has also given to us "the ministry of reconciliation" (2 Corinthians 5:18). We have the honor of sharing the good news with others so that they too can be at peace with God. And when we are right with God, we are also to do what we can to live at peace with everyone (Romans 12:18)... to win souls for Christ. We are also survivors of a much greater and far more serious battle... we have come to convert the enemies of God and eternal life... to get them to change sides and fight the battle with us. *********** In the Whirlwind And it came to pass, when the LORD would take up Elijah into heaven by a whirlwind, that Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal.... And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. 2 Kings 2:1, 11 As we have seen in the past, eagles have an interesting flight pattern. Instead of fleeing the winds of stormy weather, they turn to face them. The same winds that blow others away are used by these magnificent birds to lift them higher. A storm lifted Elijah into the presence of God. Traveling from Gilgal with his disciple Elisha, he was forewarned by the sons of the prophets in Bethel, and again in Jericho, that this was the day God would take him away. But instead of fleeing from this potentially frightening possibility, the prophet continued on, content to let God have His will. When they crossed over the Jordan River, a chariot of fire separated Elisha from his master, and a whirlwind lifted Elijah up and away. The roaring winds of a desert storm, which normally brought destruction, became for Elijah the vehicle by which God elevated him into heaven. When life's whirlwinds blow through our lives, we have a choice. We can focus on our trials and troubles, or we can use the whirlwind to be lifted up before the Lord in prayer and thanksgiving. What others see as a deadly devastation can become that which draws us more completely into God's presence. Don't run away from the storms of life. They may be God's method of bringing you closer to Him. Instead, spread your wings of prayer and faith. Consider the winds of strife as opportunities to be lifted closer to the Lord.
