Today’s thought “outstretched arm of Jehovah” (February 01)

Outstretched arm Written By Paul Zilmer One of those terms we encounter over and over in scripture is “the arm of the Lord”.

Today’s thought “He knows the way that I take” (December 19)

God is omniscient, or allknowing. Therefore, Job’s assertion, “He knows the way that I take” (Job 23:10 ESV), is true for Job and us. Job did not know the path that God was taking (v. 8) or even the path God had marked out for him (v. 9), but Job still acknowledged “God knows my… Read More Today’s thought “He knows the way that I take” (December 19)

Today’s thought “How have I burdened you?” (December 08)

In today’s second Bible reading we get the impression that God’s people looked on His laws as burdensome and felt that serving Him was difficult.
