Reigning the Rain

“For he [God] makes his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.” [Matt. 5:45] Often we see rain as negative. In reality, without rain, entire nations starve for lack of harvest. Rainy days aren’t a curse, rather a blessing of God to sustain life. A life devoid of rain means an arid desert yielding no crops for harvest. The ONE, who reigns, reins the rain!

A Feat for Beautiful Feet

Our feet and ankles are strong complex mechanical structures. Home to more than 26 bones, 33 joints, and over 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments, they endure daily abuse and are considered by many a “feat” to keep clean and smelling good. Next time you’re clipping your toenails, remember God’s Word tells us, “Beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!”

The Math of Forgiveness

When asked the number of times we should daily forgive our brother, Jesus answered 70 times 7. Even then, people wanted to keep score. But, the true measure of forgiveness? “Forgive, and you shall be forgiven.” How many offenses has God mercifully forgiven you for? It’s easy to calculate…How many offenses have YOU forgiven others for? If you do not forgive, neither will your heavenly Father forgive you. [Mark 11:26]

Weatherproof Your Walk

The gale force winds of violence and uncertainty, the tumultuous storms of life, and the crashing thunder of moral collapse; all require protection from the elements. Thankfully, God has given us “a garment of salvation, and covered us with the robe of righteousness!” [Isa. 61:10] Mom had it right all these years. Never go outside without a coat on…this world can be a bitter and cold place.

Winter Isn’t Forever

After the Flood, God promised, “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.” The Winter of 2010 was brutal; for many, it seemed an eternity, as do some of our trials. But seasons, by definition, are transient. God hasn’t forgotten His promise. Your trying season too shall pass, giving way to Spring’s budding blossoms of new life and hope.

The Journey’s as Important as the Destination

You may want to know how and when your dilemma will end, but before you skip ahead to the end, what lessons are you learning while on your journey? God is writing your story; He knows your end from the beginning. Trust not only your outcome, but every chapter in between to the “Author and Finisher of our Faith!”
