When We Wait For God #3 of 3

December 11, 2007
Whether rich or poor, all of us are equal in one key area. No one has more than twenty-four hours in any given day. Making our time count means spending some of that time in the presence of God. Through prayer we can receive guidance and develop our faith. Then we can navigate the unknowns of life with the One Who knows the end from the beginning.

When You’ve Been Wronged
Conflict in relationships is inevitable, but healing and reconciliation often is not. Time and again we've tried every option and failed, and all we are left with is a load of guilt and pain. Pastor Erwin Lutzer shows how the blessing the Lord gives to those who suffer unjustly is worth the pain involved. He also illustrates the need to leave our broken relationships in the hands of God and move forward in our lives toward freedom.

Waiting for God...it goes against our instincts. When something needs to be done, most of us want to jump in and do it. But waiting for His timing guarantees that things happen at the right time. Waiting for God means investing time every day in prayer: seeking His face, and seeking His direction. Today: how David survived the decade between becoming King and actually being King.

These are days of "instant:" instant coffee, instant internet, instant news. But lots of things in life are not instant. Patience is only developed when that patience is tried. Whether it is long lines at the grocery or long waits for answered prayer, God uses the unplanned "waits" in our lives to mold our character. Today: let us listen to David as he deals with how to handle those times of waiting.

When we conceal sin, we pay a heavy price. The weight of guilt can be crushing, and finding forgiveness is crucial. David expressed his journey toward finding forgiveness in Psalm 32. The process involves total honesty with God and with those we have offended. Today: experiencing the freedom that comes in making things right with both God and man.

It is the height of folly to think we can hide our sins from God. His gaze can penetrate any attempt to conceal the truth. That is what David found out, and wrote about in Psalm 32. Caught red-handed in great sin, David came clean before God and man. Today: what it takes to be fully forgiven and restored with the God who can see everything we do.

Deep down, everyone knows that they fall short of moral perfection. And those who have done great wrong really know it. God has put a conscience within each of us, and violating that conscience exacts a high price. Sin has both immediate and long-term consequences, and only being fully forgiven of sin removes the oppression of self-condemnation that wrongdoers feel.

Anyone can rejoice when good things happen, but answer this: can you praise God while lying near death in a hospital? There are many lessons for us in the writings of King David in Psalm 23. One lesson is this: the Good Shepherd is just as with us in bad times as He is in good times. Today: a final look at God as our Shepherd, not just David's shepherd.

Though named as King, David was pursued by a jealous King Saul for ten long years, forced to hide in caves. While under pursuit, David developed a faith in God's purposes that enabled him to write, "You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." How many of us face our trials with that kind of confidence? Today: more lessons from the most beloved Psalm of them all.

How many of us as kids awaiting punishment can remember our Dad saying "This will hurt me more than it will hurt you?" Few kids believe that, but loving fathers know that correction now avoids tragedy in later life. Just so, our heavenly Father will inflict short term pain for long term gain. Today: how a shepherd handles a sometimes rebellious sheep.
November 29, 2007
When God wanted us to understand how He cares for us, He gave us the picture of a shepherd tending his flock. Shepherds...they do much more than guide their sheep to sources of food and water. They take a personal interest in every sheep, providing correction to insure that animal's well-being. Today: we are going to look into the writings of David, the shepherd turned king.

Like mice in a maze, today's power brokers run around, certain that they hold in their hands the destiny of the world. They have no clue that far beyond their machinations lies a God who is the real power broker. In a future day, there will be one king and one king only on this earth, and His name is Jesus. No more politics as usual...the kingdom will have arrived.
