100 Words - YR1 November 21 - Harvest
Key Verse: Numbers 29:39
These you shall present to the Lord at your appointed feasts (besides your vowed offerings and your freewill offerings) as your burnt offerings and your grain offerings, as your drink offerings and your peace offerings.
Moses knew that he would not lead the people into the Promised Land. Therefore, he reviews for the new generation the details of the three sacrifices that were to be made. These would ensure that Israel would not overlook their divinely assigned obligations.
As Christians, we are not bound by the ceremonial laws of Moses. Nevertheless, we too have obligations. We can think of several, I’m sure. For the purpose of this blog, I’ll highlight one: READING GOD’S WORD DAILY…2 Timothy 3:14-17 (click here or look it up in your Bible). Verse 15 informs us that the Scriptures will “make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.” The result will be that we will be “complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” (verse 17).
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Lord Jesus, I thank You for keeping me faithful to follow this daily blog. You promised wisdom if I would ask. I ask You now for wisdom, and I plan to continue to do so every morning. I’m not doubting Your promise. In James 1:5 You said You would give wisdom liberally. Amen!
100 PERSONAL WORDS:
James also wrote, “Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up…” (James 5:14-15). This past Sunday morning, Norma-Jean and I attended Cedarview Church in Paris, Ontario. I went forward for prayer for healing. The pastor’s wife, Elaine Tonn, anointed me with oil and prayed a prayer of faith. I believe that all the faith necessary to remain in the centre of God’s will is to be obedient to His Word.
Below are two photos from a visit to the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem. We had communion together with our tour group and anointed with oil any sick among us who needed healing. We also prayed with each individual who needed an intervention of God in their lives, in their families, or in their circumstances. I’m praying the same thing for all who read this blog!
Yours for a thorough knowledge of God’s Word,
