THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
An elderly lady was visiting with her grandson in Dallas, Texas.
She became ill, and was admitted to the hospital.
A young pastor, visiting in the hospital, stopped by to see her.
He said, "I understand you are from Memphis, Tennessee."
She answered, "Yes, I am."
He said, "Well, I just wanted to come by and pray for you."
She said, "That won't be necessary, young man. Folk are praying
for me in Memphis!"
5 Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
6 Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own
God, shall bless us.
Light from the Word.
Christian, how often are you like the lady in the hospital,
limiting God's blessings to a certain area?
Yes, "God, even our OWN God" is a PERSONAL God.
He becomes involved PERSONALLY in our lives.
However, God is God to "all the people."
He is not limited to action in our lives only; nor, in specific areas
of our life.
How often do we shoulder the responsibilities of life without asking
Him for help?
How often do we struggle with our business without seeking God's
How often are we disgruntled about our government and, yet,
do not pray for God's guidance IN our government?
Better than God SUPPLYING all our need is the fact that:
God can BECOME all our need!
God's offer is to be involved in EVERY phase and area of our lives.
Praise Him in everything you do!
See His involvement in your life!
