Today’s Minutia:

Psalms 57:1 KJV Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of the wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.

You need a place where you feel protection and comfort.  You can find it when you make every effort to get close to God.  There is just something about feeling God’s presence that brings a sense of protection and comfort.  David asked for God’s mercy in the midst of his calamities.  He wanted the protection provided by the “shadow of thy wings”.  Can’t you just feel the mother hen protecting her little chicks when they feel threatened?  That’s the picture that David used to show that there is a place of refuge.  Especially, when all else around you seems to fail.  When you feel protection and comfort, you will find peace.  Jesus wanted to convey to his followers that peace is something that can be obtained when it is pursued.  John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

Protection and comfort is closer than you think.  When you find God’s presence and have acquire it for your life, you will be at peace with whatever comes your way.

Today’s Minutia:

Romans 12:12 KJV Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer.

The Apostle Paul was sharing with his brothers and sisters in Christ that the community of believers should demonstrate how love is a shared character trust.  Let other see how Jesus has made a difference in your life.  Three things a Christian should do at all times is “Rejoice in hope”, “Be Patient through your struggles”, and “Pray all the Time”.

When you have hope it’s living with the realization that there is a life after death.  Rejoice in God’s promise to have a future with Him.

Patience is a virtue that recognizes that there is a solution to every one of your problems.  God’s timing is always best and we have so much to learn about how to trust completely in God’s provision and His timing.

Prayer is the communication with God that keeps you focused on the mission God placed you here on earth for.

Today’s Minutia:

Psalm 73:26 KJV “My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever.

Time has a way of passing by so quickly. Each day we age gracefully. The body is body has a way of making adjustments for daily living but it also is a very temporary vessel. The Psalmist knew he couldn’t trust in physical permanence. However, his relationship with God gave him the strength to face all his tomorrows. Physical we will fail but God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.  Looking forward to future living in the presence of the Lord.

Enjoy today but live for a promised Heavenly presence with the Lord.

Today’s Minutia:

Proverbs 12:28 KJV In the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway thereof there is no death.

Where are you going to be tomorrow? How fixed is your schedule? Are you prepared for whatever is going to happen to change your schedule? Usually, we have a pretty good idea about what we are going to do as well as where we are going to be. But, have you prepared yourself for that final call in your life? By now, I imagine you realize that I am referring to death or possibly the return of Christ to call the redeemed home.

None of us want to leave our loved ones behind but the reality is that we all will one day. I’ve been with my friends and family as they took their last breath. During these final moments, a person’s personal relationship with the Lord is fully revealed. It’s a sad day when we lose a loved one. But, there is reason for rejoicing when we know the dying person is a born again believer. I’ve got two answers for the first question. If I’m still here, I’m going to be working for Jesus. If I have breathed my last breath, I’m going to be living with Jesus.

Today’s Minutia:

Romans 3:23 KJV For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

How satisfied are you with how your life has gone? I guess to answer that question you need to know if you are satisfied with how your life has went to this point. You also need to be satisfied with your family, friends, and professional relationships. I’d like to ask one last question. How satisfied are you with your spiritual relationship with the Lord. This reminds me of a hymn we sing. The words are as follows: “I am satisfied with Jesus, He has done so much for me. But, the question comes to me as I think of Calvary. Is my Master satisfied with me?”

Who need to make the first adjustment in their life, you or God? Many people fall short in their personal relationship with the Lord. Once one acknowledges their short-comings and gets things right with the Lord, they will make great strides in their satisfaction level.
