Seeing life's events in the light of God's Word.

Message in the Stars

Psalm 19:1- “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.”

As my husband drives, one of my favorite things to do is watch the moon and stars, thanking God for these beautiful points of light created so long ago for our pleasure.

But the Bible tells us that they have also been put in the skies to declare God’s presence and glory.

If you are “into” astrological signs, keep reading.

I am betting you aren’t aware that the entire story of creation through the events in the book of Revelation have been written in the stars so that we would know of God’s great love.

Here are some fascinating books that go into this amazing truth in great detail. Warning: you will not be able to put them down:

The Real Meaning of the Zodiac by Dr. James Kennedy (out of print, but you may find in church libraries or used bookstores. Originally printed in a special TBN edition).

The Heavens Declare by William D. Banks.

Witness of the Stars by E.W. Bullinger.

The Gospel in the Stars by Joseph A. Seiss.

Are You Strong Enough?

2 Chronicles 16:9- “The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.”

 

I thought the small concrete bench in the middle of our backyard would look better in the far corner, next to my favorite bush.

It really is a small bench. It even can be moved in three separate pieces.

However, as much as I struggled to lift the top off, I just couldn’t do it. I had to ask my husband for help.

Do you often find that doing things in your own strength is futile? Is it hard to take care of an elderly parent…deal with a wayward child…make your money stretch to the end of the month?

Is your own strength just not enough to bring you to victory in the daily battle?

Had you ever thought about what is really going on there? Who is trying to steal your joy…your peace?

Look closely: While Satan is roaming the earth, “seeking whom he may devour,” our wonderful God is looking for those of us who are fully committed to him so He can strengthen us.

He is ready, willing, and more than able to give us strength—to see us through—to lead us on—to help us live

the victorious Christian life.
