Seeking Things Above


If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. (Col 3:1)

Scripture Thursday - A New Day


Psalms 3:5 (ESV)
5 I lay down and slept; I woke again, for the Lord sustained me.
I have often struggled reading the Psalms in the past.  Mostly because many are laments of David's struggles and I often feel like I can't relate to people wanting to kill me.

However, I'm getting better at appreciating God's voice in these Psalms.  This verse hits home for me.  Everyday that I wake up is a new day God has given me.  Why has God blessed me with a new day?  So that He can work through me today for His good pleasure (Phil 2:13) which in turn blesses me with pleasure as well.  One day it may be to face a horrific challenge.  One day it may be to just enjoy the day that He has given me.

The point is, I went to bed and I awoke again, only by the grace of God for his good pleasure.  How do I please God today so that I may join Him in His pleasure?

There are certain things many people (including myself), always take for granted. Someone in bed might wonder "but why shouldn't I get up in the morning? What deadly thing can really happen to me? Will I die just this night?

We take it as a right to see the next day. It is not long ago that I truely realised it is a favor. An undeserved favor
