FRL NOW 11-17-17 : Angel Tree 2017

Angel Tree

You may be going through an awful lot right now. Maybe your company is shedding jobs and salaries, trying to keep from going under. Maybe one of the jobs they calved off was yours.

Maybe your marriage is really tanking at the moment. You can’t say you haven’t contributed to the problems, but you’re trying as hard as you can now to make this work, to make this right. Still, you’re not sure where things are headed.

Work. Family. Health. Finances. Between these major categories, life can get very complicated, both from things you’ve done as well as things that just happened. And if God feels very far away today, unconcerned and out of the picture, hear a word of encouragement from hundreds of years ago.

Throughout the Old Testament, God’s people faced one crisis after another. Sometimes it was their own dumb fault; sometimes it came by way of surprise attack. But no matter how they got into their troubles, “in all their distress, he too was distressed” (Isaiah 63:9). When they hurt, He hurt. When they suffered, He suffered.

God has not lost the directions to your house. He’s not waiting to work you in between 3:00 and 4:00 next Wednesday. God feels. He grieves. He knows what you’re going through. You’re not the only one hurting here. And His is the kind of hurt that knows how to help you. (Joe Gibbs)

FRL NOW 11-3-17 : Fear-of-God

“Fear-of-God is a school in skilled living — first you learn humility, then you experience glory” (Proverbs 15:33 The Message).

Wise people remain humble. Humility and teachability go together. Be humble or you’ll stumble.

Humility begins by simply realizing you’re not God. Whenever you get stressed, repeat this to yourself: “God is God, and I’m not. God is God, and I’m not. God is God, and I’m not.”

That’s humility. If you don’t realize that you’re not God, you’re not a humble person.

The Bible says, “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble” (James 4:6b HCSB).

Do you have a goal of becoming a wiser person?

Get to know God. You’ll be wiser in building relationships, managing money, handling conflict, diffusing problems, and dealing with all kinds of other challenges in life.

The Bible tells us, “Fear-of-God is a school in skilled living — first you learn humility, then you experience glory” (Proverbs 15:33 The Message).

Humility says you can learn from anyone. You don’t know it all. No one does. That’s why we need to remain teachable, humble, lifelong learners. Rick Warren
