FRIDAY JANUARY 17th, “ALWAYS THANK GOD!”; PASTOR CECIL A THOMPSON, DAILY E - VOTIONAL

“ALWAYS THANK GOD!”
Psalm 30:4
Sing praise to the Lord, you saints of His, and give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.” 

Years ago I heard an illustration about a little boy who had climbed on the roof of his house to retrieve his ball.  It was one of the cedar shingle roofs that had been weathered for many years.  As he reached for his ball, he suddenly began to slowly slide down the steep pitched roof.  He knew that there was nothing to stop him, and without Divine intervention, he was in for a very bad fall.

He began to pray as loud as he could for the Lord to save him. Just before reaching the edge of the roof, a rusty old shingle nail was sticking up and snagged the seat of his pants.  He looked toward heaven and shouted out, "Forget it Lord, this nail has saved me!"

Are you are able to visualize those times when God touched us in a special way, but we failed to give Him the thanks and praise He so rightly deserved? We need to start paying on what we owe in the way of exaltation and rejoicing.

In our hectic world we all too often are caught up with our own concerns that we fail to thank God for all He does for us. Without Him all we do and all we hope to do amounts to nothing. It is only what is done for Christ that matters!

JANUARY 16th, 2020
2 Corinthians 5:6
So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord.

We never know how close we are to eternity! In 1953 I had completed basic training in California.  Approximately fifty of us new Airmen were being flown to Amarillo, Texas in an outdated military transport plane left over from World War II.

One of the flight crew notified us that we would be making a stop in New Mexico. Just as we landed, one of the two propellers stopped. We were stranded there for several hours while the necessary repairs were made. One of the mechanics happened to mention that it was fortunate we were near the airbase when the trouble hit. Yikes!

Thinking about it now, I realize that we could very easily have crashed and I would have been ushered into eternity! I have had other close calls that reveal to me that we are just a heartbeat from eternity!

I want to live in such a way that others will see Christ in me. Not only did Paul express his commitment to live only for Christ, he demonstrated it by the way he lived. If ever there was an example of a sold-out Christian life, it was the apostle Paul. Let me close for today with Paul’s statement in Philippians 1:21: “For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” 

Blessings dear hearts.  May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!

Luke 12:6-7
"Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.”

Whenever I read today’s Scripture, I have to ask if the hairs of our head are numbered before or after we lose most of them? That is meant to be humorous, but I know that the words are intended to show just how intimately the Lord knows us.

I love birds and enjoy a varied collection of birds that visit the feeders I have for them outside my window. Some of these precious creatures have become accustomed to me and stay close when I fill their feeding stations.   

It always bothers me when I hear Christians speak as if the Lord was not aware of the details of their lives. Perhaps our problem is that we lack a proper understanding of God’s Word. From Genesis to Revelation we read of God’s intimate knowledge of us and our surroundings. In Psalm 139 we read: “You are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue You know it completely, O LORD.”
The next time you are tempted to feel alone and abandoned by the Lord, start looking around for the nearest sparrow (or any other bird). The Lord knows that bird by name and cares for it. If He does that, be assured that He will also take care of you.
Blessings dear hearts.  May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!  - - - Pastor Cecil

TUESDAY JAN 14th, “YOUR GREATEST TREASURE!”; PASTOR CECIL A THOMPSON, DAILY E-VOTIONAL

“YOUR GREATEST TREASURE!”
Matthew 6:19
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.

At times it seems the entire world is on the verge of financial collapse.  Retirement accounts that once seemed to be adequate for the golden years melt like a snowman in 80 degree weather! Those of us who possess the least seem to be the least concerned. Why is that? According to today’s Scripture, it has to do with where our heart is.

Over the years I have heard excuses from people who fail to honor God with their giving. They say that they want to wait until ... the house sells ... they get a raise ... they receive their inheritance ... they receive their income tax refund ... and on it goes. They claim that when their circumstances change they will have more to give to the work of the Lord.

Do you recall the incident when Jesus was in the temple courts?  You can read about it in Luke 21:1-4.  Jesus saw rich people putting their gifts into the temple treasury. He also saw a widow put in a very small amount. Jesus observed that the woman had put in more than all of the others. They gave out of their surplus, but she gave out of what little she had to live on.

It is a tragedy that many individuals (even some churches) place more confidence in the treasures of this world that will pass away than in heavenly treasures that will last forever and forever. What is your greatest treasure?  

Blessings dear hearts! May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!

 “WONDERFUL PEACE!”  
Wonderful Peace from GloryScapes on Vimeo.
John 14:27
“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

January 13th will always have a poignant meaning in my life. It was two years ago on this date that my precious wife left the trials and pain of this world to enter the place of eternal peace. It brought her wonderful peace, but I have been left to work my way through the remainder of my days without the one who had been part of my life since I was fourteen.

I have a wonderful peace in knowing that Joyce is experiencing a paradise that is beyond my wildest imagination. In bringing that picture to mind, I am given a peace that the world can never give and a peace that it cannot take away!

If you are facing a trial and tribulation of life, I urge you to seek the peace of God that is offered to all who call upon His name. Rather than focusing your attention on the storms of life, seek the precious haven that God gives that will assure you of His wonderful peace.

Wonderful Peace

Far away in the depths of my spirit tonight
Rolls a melody sweeter than psalm;
In celestial strains it unceasingly falls
O’er my soul like an infinite calm.
Refrain: Peace, peace, wonderful peace,
Coming down from the Father above!
Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray
 In fathomless billows of love!

I am resting tonight in this wonderful peace,
Resting sweetly in Jesus’ control;
For I’m kept from all danger by night and by day,
And His glory is flooding my soul!
Refrain: Peace, peace, wonderful peace,
           Coming down from the Father above!
           Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray
           In fathomless billows of love!
 
           
Ah, soul! are you here without comfort and rest,
Marching down the rough pathway of time?
Make Jesus your Friend ere the shadows grow dark;
O accept of this peace so sublime!
Refrain: Peace, peace, wonderful peace,
           Coming down from the Father above!
           Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray
           In fathomless billows of love!
