Daily Reminder

“He is your praise and your God, who has done for you these great and awesome things which your eyes have seen.” Deut. 10:21

Moses spoke these words to Israel prior to their journey into the land of promise. He had placed the tables of stone into the ark as God had commanded, and now it was time for Israel to prove their mettle.  “Go in and possess the land which I have sworn unto your fathers.”

Moses exhorted Israel to:

Fear the Lord

Walk in all His ways

Love Him

Serve Him with all your heart and soul

Keep His laws

Circumcise the foreskin of your heart

Be no longer stubborn

Love the stranger

Hold fast to the Lord.


The exhortations above sound quite familiar, don’t they? As Christians, we hold to each of them in our daily walk with Christ. Moses was admonishing Israel to remember all that God had done for them and to cling to this great God who brought them out of bondage. We too need this reminder today. It’s all too easy to interact with God as if He were a sugar daddy or an easy mark. He’s not either. He is the great awesome God of Israel, the great I AM!

Don’t mess with the MAN! Fear Him, respect Him, stand before Him in awe, and esteem Him. He’s number ONE.  Walk in ways that reflect His love and mercy to others. Love Him with that bone-deep, heart-booming passion born from a worshipful spirit. Serve Him heartily, wholly, with all the gusto you can muster. Keep His commandments and you’ll reap your rewards.

Discipline yourself, lean into the yoke and pull hard. Right next to you on the other side is Jesus. Just remember that.

Love the stranger among you, for you were once strangers also. Cling fast to the Lord and He will always be with you. Make it a practice to praise the Lord–with thanksgiving and a humble spirit.  Think back to the wondrous moments He lightened your life. Think today of what He is doing for you right this moment.

Praise Him, praise Him, and praise Him, our wonderful Redeemer! Amen.

One day at a time

Sweet Jesus

You taught us to pray


Not for yesterday

Not for tomorrow

Only for today


So I’m praying today


For my family

My friends

My enemies

My self

The lost

Those who stumble

Those who fall


Help us all this day

Father, we pray

Somehow shine

Through this maze

Called life


For you are

Our God

Our Creator

Our Father

Our only glory


Among this clay

Smooth out the cracks

Redraw the lines

Recolor the tint


That this world

Will see only you

In this body

This spirit

This sinner

This lover of self

This pilgrim

This “good” person

This crying soul

This marked entity


Branded with your cross

Forever and ever

This weeping one

Humbly prays

This day


Abba Father

My God

My Redeemer

My Lord

My King

My Savior

The great I AM

In John’s Gospel, Jesus identifies Himself seven times with Yahweh, the convenant name of God in the Old Testament.  Hallelujah.  May we praise His holy name forever and ever.
