Weekly Bible Verse: Isaiah 60:22

Our weekly Bible verse comes from Isaiah 60:22 (NIV).

“The least of you will become a thousand,
    the smallest a mighty nation.
I am the Lord;
    in its time I will do this swiftly.”

One of the most difficult things in the Christian life is to wait patiently on God’s timing.  We may not always understand why it is  necessary to wait, but in His infinite wisdom and perfect timing, God will answer our prayers and sustain us while we wait.

Our weekly Bible verse comes from 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 (NKJV)

And He said to me,  ‘My grace is sufficient for you, My strength is made perfect in weakness. ‘ Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong. ”

Distractions: A Psalm By Quinn Graham

We have a modern-day psalmist on our hands:  Quinn Graham, Will Graham’s son and Billy Graham’s great-grandson, has written a special  psalm to share. This one, entitled “Distractions” is a great reminder for us to keep our focus on God. 

Distractions

I

Distractions are a big thing in our world

They well… distract us

They distract us from God

You should never get distracted from God

When getting distracted you tend to put God aside

When you put Him aside for later you tend to forget                     

And when you forget about Him

You could take a wrong turn in the  path and start heading away from God

Heading away from God is a bad thing

 

II

At first you may not notice it

Then it grows

You start to feel like something is missing but you don’t know what

Even though you know God exist you still have a hole in you

That’s when you know you have wandered to far from Him

Instead of putting Him first you start putting the things that distract you first

You care more about your idol than your God

Once noticing it you would want to turn back to Him

But the problem is the Devil           

He wants you to stay distracted

He wants you to love your idol more than God

That’s when you know that enough is enough

And you need to put your idol down and go back to God

 

III

God’s hands are always open, and He will forgive you no matter what

He loves you no matter what you did

You may have other things in life that distract you but…

You just need to put God first.

Weekly Bible Verse: Psalm 55:22

Our weekly Bible verse comes from Psalm 55:22 (NIV)

“Cast your cares on the Lord
    and he will sustain you;
he will never let
    the righteous be shaken”

Throughout the Bible, God tells us that we can lean on Him in times of struggle and He will take care of us.  There is nothing He does not understand and nothing beyond His control.
