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.

We can be glad that we’re alive without really understanding what our life on earth is all about.

How much greater is our joy when we’re learning to look beyond our life on earth and catch a glimpse of the God, who is larger than our life on earth – the God of our eternal salvation.

The true and lasting joy of life comes to us when we know that we’re not alone in this world. The Lord is with us…

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 …
