In the Cave of Adullam

MUSINGS and ROSES

I cry out to the Lord; I plead for the Lord’s mercy. I pour out my complaints before him and tell him all my troubles.

When I am overwhelmed, you alone know the way I should turn. Wherever I go, my enemies have set traps for me.

Then I pray to you, O Lord. I say, “You are my place of refuge. You are all I really want in life.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭142:1-3, 5‬ ‭NLT‬‬

The opening verse is a prayer David wrote while hiding out in a cave. DAVID had been through a lot. From defeating Goliath, the jealousy it attracted from the king, repeated attempts on his life and danger from the Philistines.

His struggles seem to have no end. He had nowhere to go and with a heavy heart, retreated to a cave called Adullam. Adullam means refuge. DAVID sought refuge. The challenges of life had forced him…

From Genesis to Revelation in a year

Through His precious promises and strong warnings, God leads us in the way of obedience and blessing.

Deuteronomy 11:1-32 -  God is at work among His people, teaching them many lessons.  Through His precious promises and strong warnings, He leads us in the way of obedience and blessing (31-32).  If we are to enjoy the Lord’s blessing, we need the whole Word of God – the warnings as well as the promises.  …

Loving You, Lord, is more important than anything else.

Loving You, Lord, is more important than anything else – but it’s not always the most important thing in our lives. Sometimes, other things get in the way of our love for You. Help us to love You more truly and more fully – and help us to show our love for You by sharing …

Lord, we have wandered far from You.

Genesis 3:6-9 Lord, we have wandered far from You. There seems to be no way back. We feel like we’re ready to give up in despair. Is this all that there is – wandering around in the wilderness of life, always travelling but never arriving at our destination? We’re groping around in the darkness – then …

In today’s world, there’s plenty of bad news – but there’s, also, Good News …

Learning From God's Word

In today’s world, there’s plenty of bad news – but there’s, also, Good News (Mark 13:10).

In Mark 13:7, we read about the end – “the end is not yet.” In Mark 13:8, we read about a beginning – “These are the beginning of sorrows.”

Beyond “the beginning of sorrows”, there is “the end.”

The end and the beginning – Let’s look at the bigger picture.

We read about “the end” comes, will there be anything beyond this?

Here, we must speak of the end of sin and the beginning of salvation.

We look forward to the full revelation of God’s great salvation, but, first, we must pass through “the great tribulation” (Mark 13:19).

Beyond the great tribulation, there will be the coming of our great Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ (Mark 13:24-27).

Jesus speaks about our enduring to the end, and he, also, speaks about our being God’s “elect”…

Our salvation comes from the Lord …

Genesis 13:1-18 Life is full of choices. Lot made a selfish choice (10-12). He allied himself with ‘the men of Sodom (who) were wicked and were sinning greatly against the Lord’ (13). Abraham made a godly choice, and he was blessed by the Lord (14-17). The lesson of Abraham’s choice is the lesson of Matthew …

Which is more important to us – pleasing ourselves or serving the Lord?

We read about Solomon – he built “his own house”, and he built “the House of the Lord” (1 Kings 6:37-7:1). Which was the most important to him? Which is most important to us – pleasing ourselves or serving You? Help us, Lord, not to be “lovers of self, lovers of money, lovers of pleasure”. …

Lord, we feel like we’re making a right mess of things.

Lord, we feel like we’re making a right mess of things. Everything’s going wrong. This is the story of today’s world. It’s not just everybody else’s story. It’s our story. None of us can escape the truth – we’re sinners. Thank You, Lord – That’s only part of the truth concerning us. We are loved …

God’s Word for Nebuchadnezzar – and for us — Learning From God’s Word

QuietMomentsWithGod

“Stop sinning and do what is right” (Daniel 4:27). This was the Word that God spoke to Nebuchadnezzar. This is the Word that God speaks to us. “Now, I, Nebuchadnezzar will praise, honour, and give glory to the King of heaven. Everything He does is true, His ways are right and He can humiliate those […]
