Thoughts For The Day

Personal Story Of The Day



     Sing unto the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things.
     Psalm 98:1

References from  Revelation 15



People often identify a certain song with a meaningful experience or relationship in their lives. It may be the song that was playing when a couple met for the first time, or a piece of music that captures the feeling and emotion of a special moment. If you have such a song, it reminds you of that special memory every time you hear it.

The story of the Exodus is one of the most powerful accounts of Gods deliverance of His people. Pharaoh refused to let the Israelites leave Egypt until God brought ten plagues upon the land at the hand of Moses. Pharaoh then urged them to leave, but had a change of heart and pursued them with his army. But at the Red Sea God miraculously parted the waters for the Israelites to escape and then drowned the Egyptian forces in the raging sea. Moses sang a great hymn of thanks and praise to God, recorded in Exodus 1415.

As great as that deliverance was, the salvation of the Lamb is even greater. In Revelation 15, elements from the Exodus are present... plagues, the sea, and the song. But this is the ultimate judgment and ultimate victory. The song of the Lamb celebrates the triumph of God over the enemies of His people, a victory won by the Cross and resurrection of Christ.

While this is also called the song of Moses, the actual contents of the song of the Lamb are not from Exodus 15, but are a collection of other Old Testament passages (notably Psalms) that extol Gods character (cf. Rev. 15:34). The reference to the song of Moses signals that this is a song about deliverance. Even the forces that war against God must finally admit that He is sovereign. He is the only holy and just God.

In the Exodus, the Red Sea meant deliverance for the Israelites, but destruction for the Egyptians. Here we see the faithful saints rejoicing at the seven plagues, a reaction that certainly seems curious until we realize that these plagues signal the fulfillment of the justice of God (v1). And with His judgment comes the salvation of His people. The Lamb is able to take disaster and ruin and transform them into fullness of life. That is worth singing about!

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

Three little boys were looking for a summer job. Their pastor needed some
people to go around and sell bibles so the preacher hired two boys without
even thinking twice. He was hesitant about hiring the third boy because he
suffered from a speech impediment but decided to give him a go.
After the first day's work they all met back at the church. The pastor
looked at the first boy and asked him, "How many bibles did you sell?"
The boy stood up and said, "35."
"Is that all you sold?" the pastor asked.
"He looked at the second boy and asked him the same thing. The boy said,
"75." "That's good," the pastor replied.
He didn't want to ask the third boy, but did. The boy with the speech
impediment said ''I-I-I s-s-sold 175.''

The pastor was amazed and asked the boy how he sold all of the bibles.

He said ''I-I-I t-t-told them to b-b-buy t-t-them or I w-w-w-ould r-r-read
it to t-t-them'''

Devotional Thoughts Of The Day


When Joseph became Prime Minister of Egypt, he had his whole family, including Father Jacob, moved there from Canaan. But the Hebrews were only allowed to settle in the Land of Goshen outside Egypt, "for every shepherd is an abomination unto the Egyptians. (Gen 46:34). And 430 years passed, while Israel became a great nation within itself.

Now it was time for God to deliver His chosen people from under the dominion of idolatrous Egypt. He sent Moses to declare, "Let my people go!" But Pharaoh knew he would be losing his 'free' labor, so he denied Moses. Therefore, God sent 10 plagues to force Pharaoh's hand. These were devastating: All the water turned to blood; a blanket of frogs over the nation; a vast cloud of gnats; a dense swarm of flies; death to their livestock; festering boils on men and animals; a crippling hailstorm; devouring locusts; three days of darkness; and the death of their firstborn.

Those 10 plagues affected all of Egypt and the surrounding area, EXCEPT the Land of Goshen. The very land that was despised, became the safest and most prosperous place in the country!

Your life in the church or your Christian ministry might be detested by some. You may feel you're out of the loop, away from the action, living in that stinking Land of Goshen. You may be quoting negative statistics, looking at the failing economy, tracking the downward trends. But God is not influenced by the "statistics." He has you right where He wants you. It is THERE that He will protect, provide and prosper you! The plagues of the world will not touch you. The Angel of death will pass over you. And, who knows, if you accept and rejoice in the calling of God, you might even begin to develop a real love for "sheep".

Have a great day in the Lord, realizing that your "Land of Goshen" may be some priceless real estate to those who are plagued with the storms of life.

Mary, mother and human being.

And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her. Luke 1:38

Time and time again Mary marveled at events around her. Throughout Jesus' childhood, He, her son, was so different yet so right. She had carried Him under her heart, given birth to Him and seen Him grow up. She was there that day in Nazareth when they chased Him away. She marveled as the sick, the possessed and the withered came to Him and departed healed. She saw the entire Galilee region experience the power of the Holy Spirit. She listened to Jesus speak, time and time again. There were many things she did not understand, yet she knew He was right.

She saw the scornful faces of the scribes. She could never convince them herself, yet she knew they were mistaken. Their attitude, their spirit, their expressions and their stiff necks all revealed that they did not understand. Neither did she understand. Many things turned out very differently from what she had imagined. Still she knew, and she remembered the angel's visit. She would never forget that visit. God came into her life. He came suddenly and overwhelmingly yet so naturally.

Had not the prophets and the patriarchs had visitations from angels? They all had dreams and visions. Was not everyone waiting for the Messiah? But the angel came to her in Nazareth. Why? Something came over her to calm her restless, questioning mind. It was the Holy Spirit! This child was conceived through the Holy Spirit. And now He stood in the synagogue reciting Isaiah 61 and claiming that the Spirit of the Lord was upon Him. She knew He was the Messiah referred to in the Scriptures. The angel had said so. Mary had answered yes. A miracle had taken place. But all the gray days of Mary's day-to-day existence tried to wash away what the angel had said. And there were so many things that happened differently from what she had expected. But she knew He was the One! He was her son, still He was the Lord, and she was the maidservant of the Lord.
