DAILY DEVOTIONS
 

  In more than three decades of my Christian life, I have been blest by 2 types of Daily devos' (matter not exceeding 500 words) in universal Christian literature. Not only those Devos' which have a different theme everyday but also the ones which revolve around a certain theme over a period of time, say a fortnight, have richly edified me. In fact, both styles have their own inherent advantages. If the former style caters to the varying spiritual needs of a christian from day-to-day, the latter aims 'to ground' a child of God in a certain subject in order he derives the full benefits of the deep insightful study of a certain topic, spread over a fixed span of time.

In my Daily devo page, I have consciously tried to go in for 'a blend of both the styles' whereby within a constant theme, I would be aiming to focus on different facets of it which admittedly is a closer imitation of the 'Constant theme' style than the 'Varying topics' one.

Having dwelt on the topic of Christian journey in the previous month, now in the month of Febraury , I intend to focus on a monumental piece of Jewish history….the Conquest of Canaan, with its particular relevance to modern day breed of Christian spiritual warriors.

Once again, let me wish you a happy and an edifying read…

The Promise Keeper



Not a single one of all the good promises the LORD had given to the family of Israel was left unfulfilled; everything he had spoken came true. Joshua 21:45
 
  As we come to the conclusion of our meditations on the topic “Conquest of Canaan”, once again, I feel –given our short memories- its worthwhile to reflect on the fact, our God is a promise keeping God. Bible abounds in cases of God faithfully keeping up His word. Abraham and Sarah were blessed with a child in their ripe old age (Genesis 21:1) in line with His promise in Genesis 18:10. Joshua and his generation, as the above captioned scripture portion bears out, saw yet another fulfillment of God’s promise to Abraham and his grandson Jacob (Israel) that their descendents shall occupy and thrive in the Promised Land (Genesis 13:14-15/ 46:3,4).

His promise to Noah that He would never destroy the whole of Mankind (Genesis 7:8-17) with the flood again (token of that promise is a rainbow) stands even today right? Oh dear Child of God, if He has promised to give you, Eternal life (John 3:16), never doubt it. As a token of His promise in this dispensation of grace, He has given us His own edifying, enjoyable Holy Spirit. While on the subject of Holy Spirit, let me conclude with words of apostle Paul as recorded in Ephesians 1:14 “His presence within us is God’s guarantee that He will really give us all that He promised; and the Spirit’s seal upon us means that God has already purchased us and that He guarantees to bring us to Himself. This is just one more reason for us to praise God”.

HALLELUJAH!

Prayer:

Father, we simply place ourselves in Thy hands much like a little child places itself into the hands of its father, in complete trust. We know one day in eternity, we would be singing Thy praises in your Holy presence. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
