Perfect! - January 22, 2009

Good Thursday morning! Holding pattern? I do believe mine ended this past October. How is your life going today? Are you focusing on the problems or on our Lord Jesus? Focus has become a buzzword in business, but we need to buzz about it a bit more in our Christian life. With a time of problems upon us, we must focus on Jesus and not dwell on our problems. Returning our focus to Jesus brings the opportunities He has given each of us to mind. Your situation may not seem to be an opportunity, but we know that every time of trial is a time of teaching and growth in Jesus. Where will the journey take each of us today?

Last night we enjoyed another great Bible study. I like Malachi 3:6 which starts off with the great statement: "I am the Lord, and I do not change" For something to change, there must first be a need or opportunity to change. We know that God is perfect and therefore has neither the need nor the opportunity to change. Any change in God would make Him less than perfect and all of creation would then unravel. Do I have proof of this? No, I trust in a perfect God, but I am not perfect and do not know everything with proof. Part of the problem with absolute, satisfy-everyone, proof is that it is based on human intellect and logic, neither of which is God's wisdom. We are called instead to believe, and like Jesus said it would, that drives the world's intellectuals, to use a technical term, absolutely bonkers. :-) Proof? Look to the heavens at night, see that the universe works though we don't understand it. However, a person must first believe in order to see God's creation for what it is.

Praise God for the glory of a new day in Christ!
