What a Week...to be Thankful



This has been an intense week. While committed to share a blessing about the Lord each day, if there was a week to be distracted, this would have been it!  Much time was spent praying for our nation, followed by begin glued to the television for news about the election.  When the though of 'finally the election is over', upheaval and emotion about the outcome seemed to fly from everywhere.  If our focus or trust leans away from God, hope wanes, trials of life are magnified and confusion reigns. But, Christians have a hope that endures, promises from God's Word to cling to and the ability to trust in the One True God who reigns supremely.

So this week, before the craziness of the day would begin, some time in God's Word became not only a blessing, but peace, comfort and strength for the day.

November 7:  Jesus is the Light of the World..in Him, there is no darkness.

November 8:  Jesus is the King of Kings. A commentary quoted..."in Revelation 19:16 Jesus is given the full title “KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS” The title indicates someone who has the power to exercise absolute dominion over all His realm. In the case of the Lord Jesus, the realm is all of creation. 

November 9:  “Jehovah-Jireh” This name means “the God who provides.” Just as He provided yesterday, He will also provide today and tomorrow. 

November 10:  Most High.  "For You, LORD, are the Most High over all the earth; You are exalted above all the gods."  Psalms 97:9

November 11:  God has No Greater Love.  To give your life so another person can live is the ultimate proof of love. During the night that Jesus was betrayed, He told His disciples of His intention to give His life in exchange for mankind. He told them: “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends” (John 15:13). And then He set the ultimate example of self-sacrifice by going to the cross. Today is Veteran's Day I thank God for all our service men and women who have served and are currently serving in our military; I pray God will bless them richly for answering a call that requires extraordinary courage and bravery.
