Welcome not only to a new week but also to a new month. You know, just like any Father, the Lord is always pleased when His children pay attention to what He has to say. We’re blessed to have you join us.
In looking ahead to this month’s reading we cover a lot of Bible history, but it’s not boring. On the contrary, this is a vivid, action-packed drama. We just saw God open up the Red Sea and Israel divinely saved from Pharoah’s wrath. Now God outlines His blessings for obedience and curses for disobedience; Joshua stands at the edge of the Promised Land ready to advance and conquer. God displays His miraculous power over and over. Then there’s Gideon with his select few, victorious over thousands. And if you don’t believe God has a sense of humor, read the Book of Judges.
The next thirty days promise to be a breathtaking, blood-tingling experience. So let’s praise the Lord together for what He plans to teach us these next few weeks.
