Different members of our church family write these reflections each week to go along with the two year reading plan the church is participating in. It is our hope that these reflections help you to get in to your Bible throughout the week and be challenged by the word of God.
Read Psalm 118 (Monday 11/27)
A recurring theme in this psalm is “His love endures forever”. We must give thanks and praise to God because He is always there, he remains when everything else turns to dust. We need to open the door to let Him in, and He saves us and takes care of us. Our trust should be put in Him, for our fellow humans are sinners like ourselves and deceive. Whatever trials our fellow humans put us through does not matter because God is taking care of us all the time. We do well to praise God and declare what he has done for us boldly and openly. When we do so, God opens the gates and lets us in, He grants us success. Anyone that does not follow God will be unsuccessful. God is my God, and I thank Him; I give everything to Him.
1 Do I thank God for my life every day? Do I show this in my actions?
2. Do I go to God in every matter no matter how big or small?
Read Psalm 124 (Saturday 12/2)
What would happen if we did not have God? What would the world be like? There would be no hope, and death and destruction would surround all the earth. Our enemies would consume us. God has saved us from all of this. He is our superhero who has come in the nick of time to free us from our enemies. We owe Him our lives, our thanks and praise forever and to give Him all the glory and honor because it belongs to Him.
!. When we are experiencing a trial, do we go to God, or curse our circumstances?
2. Do we give thanks and praise that God is with us all the time whether we are experiencing a trial or not?
