COME THOU FOUNT! – Psalm 36:9 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional

COME THOU FOUNT!

Psalm 36:9 – Devotional

Psalm 36:9

“For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light.”

Robert Robinson who lived from 1735 to 1790, was saved while attending a service conducted by the famous evangelist George Whitefield. Following his conversion he entered the Christian ministry, but like so many, he would lose his fervor for God.

The words of the hymn “Come Thou Fount” were written to express his own need for a closer walk with the Lord. His prayer is that his heart may be re-tuned to be in perfect harmony with the will of God.

In stanza two he speaks of his conversion. The word “Ebenezer” refers to a time and place when he actually received the Lord into his life as personal Savior and Lord. He goes on to remind himself and others that it is necessary to daily remind ourselves what a debt we owe to the Lord for our salvation at His expense.

Come Thou Fount

Come, Thou Fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing, call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet, sung by flaming tongues above;
Praise the mount-I’m fixed upon it-mount of Thy redeeming love.

Here I raise mine Ebenezer; hither by Thy help I’m come;
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure, safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger, wand’ring from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger, interposed His precious blood.

O to grace how great a debtor daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter, bind my wand’ring heart to Thee;
Prone to wander, Lord I feel it, Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it; seal it for Thy courts above.

ASK WITH THANKS! – Philippians 4:6-7 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional

ASK WITH THANKS!

Philippians 4:6-7 – Devotional

Philippians 4:6-7

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

I was taught to always say please and thank you. Have I always done that? No! To my shame I have at times fallen short of that aim. Even so, my desire is to strive toward the goal of living a life of thanks and praise.

LISTEN! Rejoicing is not an option, but rather an imperative. We are to be a people who rejoice! That means to get a smile on our face. You might have the joy of Jesus down in your heart, but you had better let your face know about it. That is what others will see.

You know what comes to my mind right now? I see the saints of God across the ages who had the joy and rejoicing in their hearts, even during times of deep distress. They rejoiced even as the flames consumed them, or the lions devoured them, or the soldiers of the enemy slew them with the sword.

Were their prayers heard? I believe they were. I believe they are with all of the departed saints of God right now, experiencing utter joy. “It is joy unspeakable and full of glory, and the half has never yet been told!”

Blessings dear hearts! Walk with God today and be a blessing!

REJOICE AND PRAISE! – Psalm 97:12 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional

REJOICE AND PRAISE!

Psalm 97:12 – Devotional

Psalm 97:12

“Let everyone who is godly rejoice in the Lord and praise His holy name!”

I must confess that I have a difficult time being around negative people. You know the type – – those who see only doom and gloom while ignoring the mighty works of God that He so freely displays for us.

This is not to say that we live in ideal conditions. Let’s face it, we live in a sin-sick and fallen world. Across the ages the people of God have been persecuted and tortured for their faith. It is in these most perilous times that His glory is the most evident and precious.

I certainly do not desire to suffer for the Lord, but I have “signed up” to be a member of His blood washed band. If I am called upon to pay the ultimate sacrifice with my life, I know He will be there beside me!

Whatever you are facing this day, take heart dear one. The Lord has not left you alone! The glorious Holy Spirit is right there beside us and will give us the strength to endure to the end with joy and praise!

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!

HEARERS AND DOERS! – James 1:22 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional

HEARERS AND DOERS!

James 1:22 – Devotional

James 1:22

“Be doers of the word, and not hearers only, thus deceiving yourselves.”

Are you more than just a hearer of the Word of God? As I write this I am prone to wonder about those who are so far removed from a commitment to the Lord that they seldom even read even a small portion each day?

There is no way we can do God’s will if we fail to read what His will is for our life. We are easily deceived when we rely upon what someone else says the Bible says without seeking to discover it for ourselves.

As teens we used to intentionally misquote the Bible to make a point. We would say: “The following is directly from the Bible: ‘Judas went out and hung himself! Go thou and do likewise! Whatsoever you do, do quickly!’”

Of course that was an absurd misuse and abuse of Scripture, but it is sad that some will also flagrantly tailor the Word of God to suit their own purposes. I would rather allow the Word of God change me rather than my changing the inspired WORD OF GOD!

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!
