ISAIAH 50:4… Good words sustain those who are weary. Don’t be moved by what you see or by what you feel; be moved by what you believe, the Word of God. Job 36:11 teaches that the people who obey God and serve Him spend their days in prosperity and their years in pleasure. Psalm 71:20 teaches that the God who sees people experiencing great troubles will also quicken them again and bring them up and not down. Listen to me… the setback that you are in now might be the very thing that makes you carry on, and you will be a better person for it. Remember that as a Christian you are standing in the grace of God, and His grace never stops working. Not too long ago I gave a word to a man who was going through some hurts. I said, “Be a spiritual rock, not a crumbling stone.” Words can work wonders to those who are weary…
GOD IS JUST A NAME… So said a man when interviewed by a talk show host recently. He was anti-God, anti-Bible, anti-church, and anti-Christian. To this man God was just a name, but he did not know the NAME. Psalm 9:10 reads, “And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee” (KJV). One of the greatest studies in the Bible is the study of God’s names. Throughout the Bible God places great emphasis on His name because all his names are revelations of who He is and what he is. Psalm 75:1 tells us that His name is near. The word “near” refers to being near in location, near in place, near in time, even near as kindred, or near for every purpose you may have need of. Each of God’s names are connected to the needs of mankind and points to the greatest name ever revealed, the Lord Jesus Christ… and through that name God’s grace is manifested. There are many people in this world who speak against “the Name of Jesus” without knowing Him personally. Scripture Nuggets lifts up the name of Jesus. It is in Jesus that we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28). Jesus cares for all who call upon Him, and He cares for those who do not call upon Him because He doesn’t want them to perish.
GROWING IN OLD AGE… The tombstone read, “He died climbing.” Philippians 3:16… God wants people fruitful and happy in old age. If you want a beautiful old age you must decide that it will be so. We grow from within and not by the circumstances outside of us. Meet old age with joy, because as a Christian your life with God is young. At your conversion, God gave you a running start, but the course is forever. Don’t retire; be creative. Learn something every day. If your physical activities have slowed you down, let your spiritual activities increase.
