The Lord is great. He’s our great Saviour.

Learning From God's Word

“May all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who long for your saving help always say, ‘The Lord is great!’” (Psalm 70:4).

In times of trouble, we need to lift up our eye and look to the Lord. When we’re feeling low, this is exactly the thing that we cannot do. We need to be lifted up by the Lord. What we cannot do for ourselves, the Lord does for us. When the Lord lifts us up, we do not say, “I have pulled myself together.” We say, “The Lord is great.” What a great Saviour we have! Let us rejoice and be glad in him.

Learning From God's Word

“Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom” (Psalm 90:12).

May God teach us to live our life in the light of eternity.

“What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”— the things God has prepared for those who love him — 10 these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit” (1 Corinthians 2:9-10).

“We will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words” (1 Thessalonians 4:17-18).

Here, on earth, our life is full of highs and lows, happy times and sad times. May the Lord help us to look above all these things – and catch a glimpse of the eternal glory he is preparing for us. In an attitude of gratitude, let us live our life to please him and give glory to him.

Jesus Christ is the Sure Foundation upon which our faith is built.

Psalms 120:1-121:8  -  ‘Deliver me, O Lord, from lying lips’ (120:2). God calls us to ‘believe the truth’, ‘love the truth’ and ‘follow the truth’. We are to be people who ‘do what is true’ (2 Thessalonians 2:10-11; 3 John 3-4; John 3:21). How can we be such people? We must keep our eyes fixed …
