“I lay down and slept; I woke again, for the Lord sustained me.” Psalm 3:5 (ESV)
Because of the grace and mercy of The Lord we have awaken to see another day. No matter what happens today or if what we planned does not turns out like we wanted, this is a day to give The Lord thanks and praise.
Stir It Up
"Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands." 2 Timothy 1:6
In receiving gifts, there are some gifts we liked, and we could use, then there were others that were not as useful. The gifts that we like we use all the time and want to get all we can out of them, but the gifts we do not like we put them on a shelf and if by chance we need them we will use them, or just simply give them away.
"Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?" Isaiah 43:19 (ESV)
Many of us like getting new things, it does have to be brand new, but if it is new to us, it is still new. When we get a new car, we want everyone to see our new car, when we get a new house, we invite people over for house-warming gatherings so they can see our new house.
“And Jesus said, “Who was it that touched me?” When all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the crowds surround you and are pressing in on you!” Luke 8:45 (ESV)
Being in a crowd we are going to inadvertently bump into people. No matter how much we may try to avoid contact with anyone, when we are in a crowd t is almost impossible not to have contact with someone.
