Musings on God’s Word
This week has been one of much busyness, and in some ways, one looks forward to it being over. That, in itself, is wishing one’s life away. Not something one should do. The week will end on Saturday and we will begin anew and afresh on Sunday. As I considered my situation I was reminded of a verse of scripture that brought me to a point of peace and quiet.
- Be Still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.
This verse not only was applicable to the way I was feeling but paints a bigger picture. If you, like me, look out in the world and see its condition with the wars, homelessness, drug abuse and many things evil being considered good while good is now considered evil. Our governments are even putting in place laws that endorse or at least condone evil and sin. While faithful Christians are being considered racist, biased and many other hurtful things. Then I’m sure there are times when peace and contentment are difficult to find.
The psalmist points out that no matter what is happening around us “God is our refuge and strength, A Very present help in trouble.
- We should be comforted in the assurance that He is God. and we can wait on Him even amid chaos. God is still on His throne.
- The Lord of hosts is with us;
Psalm 37:7 & 8
- Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him, Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way. Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
- Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret—it only causes harm.
Our world has been turned upside down and more so since the covid situation hit us.
On the other hand God has not changed, God is still in charge and His will takes precedence over all. So as I review my week it began with our attendance at the breaking of bread service, followed by a social time and then our Worship Service. Times to Thank God for his sacrifice, His goodness and the fellowship of like minded Christians. Monday I took care of the finances. Tuesday was Breakfast for the men followed by a wonderful bible study. Oh yeah and that afternoon a condo strata council meeting. Wednesday was a blessed day as we took time to remember our friend Brian Salmon and again fellowship with friends and new acquaintances. It’s Thursday now and time to work on the email and run some needed errands. Friday will be spent with part of the family. Saturday is rest time to prepare for Sunday.
I have no doubt many, if not all of you, can do the same, look back at your week. See the busyness, but thank God for his presence and care & keeping over us all. Life will be busy sometimes and may even seem overwhelming but always remember ” Be still and know that I am God”, “Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him.”
Let us thank God for His Love and sacrifice for each of us and look forward to spending time with fellow believers and our Lord and Savior.
God’s richest blessing on you all
