The Jobian Dilemma.


I heard a Bible teacher one time say this phrase: “Unique interpretations are usually wrong”.  His point was that, if someone is offering you a view on Scripture that no one else has had, it’s a sign of danger.  I wrote in my notes next to this phrase, “I disagree”.  And I do.  I believe that, as the Bible teaches, we need to search out everything we hear concerning Scripture and Jesus to make sure that the teaching lines up with Scripture and what we know about the character of God from the person of Jesus (1 John 4:1).

All that being said, in the way of an introduction, I would like to share a thought with you.  I seek to communicate up front that this is a personal thought I had during study this morning.  It is not explicit in Scripture, I did not read it from some great theologian.  I do believe God laid it on my heart and it is thought-provoking.  So I want to share.

You know what time it is!!!!!!!!!! It’s time to grab some coffee…and at least have coffee. I mean…it is Monday after all.

I just used ten exclamation points…it is way too early for ten exclamation points. I hope you all had a great weekend and I pray you are seeking to follow God through the week ahead of you. Let’s break the Monday morning blues with a little bit of hope and joy from the inspired word of God!

“Entrust your ways to the Lord. Trust Him, and He will act on your behalf.”
Psalm 37:5, GW

The Old Man’s House


The only thing worse than being lost, is being lost in the woods.  Think about it, when you’re lost in the city, at least every step and turn brings new sights, new sounds, new possibilities.  But when you’re lost in the woods…all you have is trees.  Trees, trees, trees.

But if you’re lucky, maybe you hear a sound.  It’s quiet at first, but seems to be beckoning you to the left and as you follow the sound grows.  Music, a melody drifting through the atmosphere to soothe your nerves.  You follow it through the trees, trees, trees.  Until finally, you break through the trees into a clearing.

It’s that time again my little angel faces!  Monday has rolled back around and I pray that your weekend was blessed and highly favored.  Just wanted to put a little truth in your Monday…so take a look at this:

“I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
yes, I will remember your wonders of old.
I will ponder all your work,
and meditate on your mighty deeds.

Your Way, O God, is holy.
What god is great like our God?
You are the God who works wonders;
you have made known your might among the peoples.”
-Psalm 77:11-14, ESV

See His wonders all around you as you begin this day.  In the hard times: the whining co-workers, the angry customers, and the daily injustices of a fallen world, remember that there is no god that is great like our God.  The one, true God.

Be His.
