The vanity of vanities, all is vanity…

The vanity of vanities, all is vanity…

Father, thank you for teaching us that life is not about three score and 10 years but instead showing us that it is a “proving ground” where we are able to be tested by You and where You will help us overcome evil spirits, spirits which are as real as you are Father and which we can not overcome by ourselves.

Is working hard part of what God expects of us?

Father, Solomon observed and made logical deductions. Give us the wisdom to do the same. We know that endeavor, in Your name, is rewarded, but as clear as we are on that fact, we sometimes think that what we have personally accomplished will endure.

My conscience…a flashlight on my soul.

My conscience…a flashlight on my soul.

Rejoice? You have to be kidding. My life is a mess…

Father, Your word says rejoice always. Sometimes Father we feel that true rejoicing in the midst of the trials of this earth is nearly impossible. Thank You for reminding us that we rejoice in the victory of Your presence in all situations. We never suffer or go through trials alone.

Are you as a heavenly conduit, passing God’s love to others?

You suffered as we would have had to suffer if it was not for Your sacrifice. Your assumption of our sins accomplished for us [...]

Sealed by the Holy Spirit… How do you know?

Sealed by the Holy Spirit… How do you know?

Paul teaches us that those who love You and obey You are "sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise". Father, for this degree of certainty, we are grateful.

Does the “law” redeem you or convict you?

Does the “law” redeem you or convict you?

We do not trust in our obedience to the law for our salvation. Only by the redeeming blood of Jesus, shed for us, can we ever hope to stand in Your Holy presence. That Father is what separates Christianity from every other belief system. We can not enter into Your presence stained by sin and Jesus takes away our sin, forever.

Fear not, I will help you…do you believe that?

Fear not, I will help you…do you believe that?

Dear God, what powerful promises these are. Even in the midst of fear, You lift us up, You extend Your hand to us, in a very personal way. You are our God!
