God’s Day Tuesday, Apr 11 2017 

Some believe that everyday is God’s day. When defined as a set 24 hours, this is certainly true, but I’ve been pondering the fact that we know that God lives outside of time and yet he does everything within its’ proper time. This blog post just might blow your mind as I take you to a place you may have never been.

You may have never thought about this in exactly the way I intend to spell it out to you here. Oh, I know, “there is nothing new under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 1:9 What has been will be again,
    what has been done will be done again;
    there is nothing new under the sun.

But I also know that, ” with the LORD a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years is like a day”,  2 Peter 3:8  But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.

So imagine for a moment that you could understand the concept of one day stretching out into a thousand years. This is one of those impossibilities that is possible with God. Just like the camel through the eye of the needle.

I can’t help but think that God takes great musings about this pondering of His awesomeness.

Back to “a day”. The best way to understand this is back at the beginning. Genesis 1:4-5

God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.

Here we see exactly what God is doing. It is the essence of who He is that comes out so clearly. God “sees” what is good and separates it from darkness. Only God is good. Mark 10:18 18 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone. ”

Why do I attempt to explain God to you? Every attempt I make fails miserably. I digress at every turn unable to put forth the meaning my mind so eagerly clings to in this expansion called “today”.

The point I’m trying to make is that every day is important, valuable, priceless, irreplaceable, unwavering in its’ capacity to glorify the God of the universe within the actions of His called and beyond the circumference of His chosen. We cannot contain all that God’s “Day” encompasses.

Only God can truly know his day and what it will be. Will it be full of gentleness, meekness and peace; absent of any need or want or worry? Or, will it be a “Day of Reckoning”? You decide.

Each New Day Monday, Jan 6 2014 

Each New Day

Each new day we have opportunity to do good things. We can help a neighbor or watch the grandkids for our children. Smile at a stranger who might be having a down day. We can seek God’s face in all we do. We are able to read His holy bible and from it to draw inspiration for good. We should always seek to copy what God is doing. If we see His hand at work we should join in and assist in any way we can.

It is important not to let guilt or shame prevent you from doing good things. The enemy will try to make you feel bad about past mistakes. You can stand against the enemy with the full armor of God.

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Which means to be guided by the truth and to want to do what is right and to be at peace wherever you go and trust in the Faith God has given you to protect you against the enemy and know that you are saved and know God’s Word in your heart so that you are always ready and pray in the Spirit always keeping guard for your fellow Christians.

Many times when you first wake up in the morning a thought will come to you which should guide your whole day. Perhaps it is an admonition from the Spirit who gently nudges you toward the right thing to do with your time and resources. If a person comes to mind be sure to pray for them and call them if you get the opportunity.
