…a Bible student's notes…

It’s that time again…..

So – we have awakened this morning with new mercies and compassions that will never cease and never fail. And, a lot of us have awakened to fresh hopes of fulfilling new goals and old goals that never have been fulfilled. Let me say right up front that, “the joy of the LORD is our strength” for every needful goal of our lives. The joy set before Him was His Father’s Promise of “His Day” when He would claim the title deed to the earth and reign over all governments.

Seeking first and foremost His Kingdom and His Righteousness with zeal and determination to please Him in all thoughts, words, and deeds is to be our goal. Livingstone has a quote that I keep handy for my eyes to light upon: “I will place no value on anything I have or possess, except in relation to the kingdom of Christ.”

I read my daughter’s declaration of dedication to her home, on Facebook this morning. She has chosen her utmost for His highest calling. He will honor this quest! Even in this age, she will reap benefits of peace and contentment, but, in the age to come, life for that age and the enjoyment of her Lord and Savior’s inheritance.

May the Lord, daily, load us with His Benefits and Encouragement as we strive to make no provision for the flesh to fulfill its desires.
