Constant and True

Isn’t it wonderful in such times as these, of great turbulence and change, to know there is One who never changes. He is totally reliable and trustworthy, true to His Word. Some of His promises are conditional, we have a part to play following His unchanging pattern, as with the children of Israel when He set out His teaching to Moses: Exodus 19 :5-6 Now therefore, IF you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant,  THEN YOU WILL be a peculiar treasure to Me above all people, for all the earth is Mine. AND YOU WILL be a kingdom of priests to Me and a holy nation. But … Continue reading

The All Sufficient One

  When God provided manna in the wilderness for the children of Israel, His provision was sufficient. The instructions were clear. It was a daily provision, apart from the Sabbath day which allowed for a day of rest. In this lesson is the seed of trust. Only a life dependant on God can savour the sanctity of the moment.

Giant Slayer

When God rescues His people, He shows His power as He did when He brought His children out of Egypt, with judgement against all that opposed His plan and purpose. (Exodus 7:4) His plan is that all should be saved. He shows infinite patience and mercy, waiting, sparing judgement, giving every opportunity for repentance, many resisting til their last moment.  Such is the mercy of God.

There is a valiant One ready to judge the oppressor. … Continue reading
