Good morning, Isn't today wonderful ?

Only 25 days to the year 2024

Scripture Of The Day

Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.
Psalms 143:8

Read The Bible In a Year

Daniel 5-7 ; 2 John

Thoughts For The Day

One day in heaven the unseen, infinite God will graciously make Himself visible to us. We will see Jesus and live in His light (Revelation 21:23). But seeing Him will be seeing God, for He is God. What a blessed prospect!

I believe we must first recognize that God in His essential being is pure Spirit (John 4:24), and therefore is invisibly present everywhere in His vast creation (Psalm 139:7-12). But we read in the Bible that on various occasions God appeared to people in a visible way (Genesis 18:1-3). He created a burning bush from which to challenge Moses (Exodus 3:2). And further, the glory of His presence was revealed, and "there was under His feet as it were a paved work of sapphire stone" (Exodus 24:9-10). God can appear in any form He desires, even while He Himself remains invisibly present throughout the universe.

Ignorant people are very broadminded: they are always willing to give careful consideration to both sides of the same side.

Motivation For The Day

The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and richness to life that nothing else can bring.

Personal Story Of The Day

Here I Am Lord

I heard a man say that  he never prayed more than once for anything. He didn't want to weary God with his repeated requests. The Lord's teaching on prayer in Luke 11 contradicts this notion. He told a parable about a man who went to his friend's house at midnight and asked for some bread to feed his unexpected visitors. At first the friend refused, for he and his family were in bed. Finally he got up and gave him the bread... not out of friendship but because the caller was so persistent (v5-10). Jesus used this parable to contrast this reluctant friend with our generous heavenly Father. If an irritated neighbour will give in to his friend's persistence and grant his request, how much more readily will our heavenly Father give us all we need! It's true that God, in His great wisdom, may sometimes delay His answers to prayer. It's also true that we must pray in harmony with the Scriptures and God's will. But Jesus moved beyond those facts to urge us to persist in prayer. He told us to ask, seek, and knock until the answer comes (v9). So don't worry about wearying God. He will never tire of your persistent prayer. Let's keep in mind that persistent prayer includes much more than one topic or request. Firstly, we give thanks, building the structure for the petitions to stand on. Secondly we now can pray in the Spirit, a much larger foundation for prayer to have its way on our behalf. Thirdly, prayer builds our faith in God and strengthens our resolve to walk in the spirit and that is where the answer is found.

Jokes Of The Day

An older couple had a son, who was still living with his parents. The parents were a little worried, as the son was still unable to decide about his career path... so they decided to do a small test.

They took a ten-dollar bill, a Bible, and a bottle of whiskey, and put them on the front hall table. Then they hid, hoping he would think they weren't at home.

The father told the mother, "If he takes the money he will be a businessman, if he takes the Bible he will be a priest - but if he takes the bottle of whiskey, I'm afraid our son will be a drunkard."

So the parents took their place in the nearby closet and waited nervously. Peeping through the keyhole they saw their son arrive home. He saw the note they had left, saying they'd be home later. Then, he took the 10-dollar bill, looked at it against the light, and slid it in his pocket.

After that, he took the Bible, flicked through it, and took it also.

Finally, he grabbed the bottle, opened it, and took an appreciative whiff to be assured of the quality. Then he left for his room, carrying all the three items.

The father slapped his forehead, and said: "Darn, it's even worse than I ever imagined..."

"What do you mean?" his wife inquired.

"Our son is going to be a politician!" replied the concerned father.


A blonde, wanting to earn some money, decided to hire herself out as a handyman-type and started canvassing a wealthy neighborhood. She went to the front door of the first house and asked the owner if he had any jobs for her to do. "Well, you can paint my porch. How much will you charge?" The blonde said "How about 50 dollars?"

The man agreed and told her that the paint and ladders that she might need were in the garage. The man's wife, inside the house, heard the conversation and said to her husband, "Does she realize that the porch goes all the way around the house?" The man replied, "She should. She was standing on the porch."

A short time later, the blonde came to the door to collect her money. "You're finished already?" he asked. "Yes," the blonde answered, "and I had paint left over, so I gave it two coats." Impressed, the man reached in his pocket for the $50. "And by the way," the blonde added, "that's not a Porch, it's a Ferrari."


Fellow 1: "Now my grandfather, he knew the exact day of the year that he was going to die. It was the right year too. Not only that, but he knew what time he would die that day, and he was right about that, too."

Fellow 2: "Wow, that's incredible! How did he know all of that?"

Fellow 1: "A judge told him

Devotional Thoughts Of The Day

...the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD. Job 1:21. References from Job 2:1-13

According to some, the world hangs in a precarious balance between forces of good and evil. One can only hope that things will turn out all right in the end. Given current events, this view is understandable. The problem is that this view is contrary to biblical reality, where there's no doubt that Gods victory is certain because Satan is a defeated enemy.The picture given in Job 1 and 2 is not a balanced scale that might tip either toward good or evil! Instead, Satan must receive permission to carry out his destructive plans. This point is crucial to a correct view of human suffering. God sets the boundaries . . . period. These first two chapters of Job reveal a larger framework for understanding human suffering. Job only sees whats happening on earth, but the book of Job lets us see whats happening in heaven. Thus, the human experience of suffering is not the full story. Rather, God is actively accomplishing His own purposes even, or perhaps especially, when those who suffer are unaware of it. Job 2 shows us more of Satan's cynical view of faith. Satan's motto would be, When the going gets tough, the 'tough desert God. It's impossible for him to understand how someone could remain faithful to God, even to the point of death (v4). But the sovereign Lord has confidence in Job's character and the example he will be to others who remain faithful despite very testing circumstances. 

I'm On My Own. 

So he said, "I have been very zealous for the Lord God of hosts; for the children of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, torn down Your altars, and killed Your prophets with the sword. I alone aml eft; and they seek to take my life." 1 Kings 19:10 

Upon returning from one of his globe encircling voyages, Sir FrancisDrake, the great explorer, anchored his ship in the little Thames River. A dangerous storm arose and it seemed that his ship would flounder. Someone standing near the old, weather beaten seaman heard him say through gritted teeth, "Must I who have escaped the rage of the ocean be drowned in a ditch?" Often a Christian who has withstood the assaults of the world in severe trials and temptations falters because of a minor difficulty. Elijah found himself in such a position. He had confronted Ahab, king of Israel. He had stood up to 450 prophets of Baal. He had challenged the people of Israel to renew their commitment to the Lord. Then he was faced with the wrath of a vengeful woman, Jezebel. Not only did he flee, but he also began to feel sorry for himself. He concluded, "I alone am left; and they seek to take my life." When we focus on the negative aspects of our situation, it's easy to slip into self pity. Life is filled with many hardships and injustices. But as Elijah was about to learn, God's people are never left alone. God has promised not to keep us from the valleys, but to walk through them with us (Ps 23:4). He has promised us not the absence of problems, but the guarantee of His presence (Heb 13:5). If you fall victim to self pity, don't allow yourself to stay bogged down there. Whatever your circumstances, God is with you. The two of you together are sufficient for any situation. You are never left alone when you are alone with God.
