Daily Message – 19 Dec 2021

Today’s Daily Message is a little different today. It’s the whole chapter of Psalm 91.

Psalm 91:1-16 NKJV
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. [2] I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” [3] Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. [4] He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. [5] You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, [6] Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. [7] A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you. [8] Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked. [9] Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, [10] No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; [11] For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. [12] In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone. [13] You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot. [14] “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. [15] He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. [16] With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.”

Folks, this is what it means to trust God with everything!

“You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ [28] But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
Matthew 5:27-29 NKJV

The Old Testament teaches us about sin, but here Jesus takes it up a notch. We know from the Old Testament that murder is a sin, but Jesus tells us that just thinking about committing murder is sin. And this goes for all the other sins as well. It is a sin to think about cheating on a test. It is a sin to think hateful things about your brothers and sisters, even if you don’t say them out loud. Mental sin is sin.

Daily Message – 15 Dec 2021

“Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.”
Galatians 6:10 NKJV

Paul writes that believers are supposed to “do good to all people.” This means that we are to show God’s love to everyone we encounter. Then Paul goes on to tell us “especially to those who belong to the family of believers.”

Hi Folks, this goes along with today’s Daily Message. Last year we did our “Read the Bible in One Year Challenge”. This year we read individual books.

I’ll put the reading plan in our file section for you can download the printable pdf that will fit in your Bible. As we read together you share your thoughts, insights, or questions and we all can grow and be blessed by each other as we spend time in God’s Word.

“For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.”
Romans 15:4 NKJV

The Bible contains a lot of really good advice, but it’s not a self-help book. It is much more important than that. A self-help book may be a useful tool, but it is not absolutely necessary. The Bible is an integral part of our relationship with God.
