I give up!
Our Sunday morning routine involves waking up at 5:45, Lyn or I get up to make a make a cup of tea and back in bed by 6:00 to listen to Rev Shona on  Hot 91.9 FM (highly recommended!). Part of her message this past Sunday  that I would like to share with you was about giving up the old to become a new creation in God. She spoke about Psalm 46 v 10:  "Be still and know that I am God".  The original Hebrew route (which I have not been able to confirm) means let go.  The revised version would then read; let go and know that I am God which is very similar to the old adage of "let go and let God".

Do not conform yourselves to the standards of this world, but let God transform you inwardly by a complete change of your mind. Romans 12 : 2

“The Lord was with Joseph”. Joseph was excommunicated by his brothers, to put it mildly, and ended up in Egypt sold as a slave. He had nothing but the clothes on his back and the call of God on his heart. Within a short while he was running the house of one the most powerful people in Egypt. How did he do it, how did this turnaround come about? In Genesis it tells us “The Lord was with Joseph, and he was a successful man” (v.2) “His master saw that the Lord was with him” (v.30) . God then blessed all that the “master” had “The blessing of the Lord was on all he had.” (v.5)
 
On with it then, and finish the job! Be as eager to finish it as you were to plan it, and do it with what you now have.       2 Corinthians 8: 11

“I love you…. No I love you more; I love you more than you will ever know…. I love you more”. These are whatsapp messages between my granddaughter and me. No matter what superlative I use to express my love for her, her response is “I love you more”.

Colin's Wise Wednesday - 18th September 2019

It was a wee bit late for getting out of bed, especially being in the bush, so this morning for our quiet time we decided to sit outside on the patio with our coffee, rusks (of course) and devotions and spend time in God’s presence.  Before reading I sat staring at the huge sycamore fig tree which stands in the river bed in front of the bungalow. The previous four days of our holiday while being on the patio busying ourselves with various things I hadn’t noticed any activity in the fig tree which is normally a haven for the green pigeon, one of my favorite birds, who just love the fruit that the tree produces most year round, but sadly not this time.

Coincidence or God ‘incidence’? On the way to take a good friend of ours to have a cataract operation last week the car in front of us had the registration Godsway… (talk about a burning bush moment).The lead up  to his operation was indeed Godsway but that’s not the story I want to tell you now, will leave that for another day. This incident reminded me of a devotion that I read last week that I want to share with you.

Jesus Christ is not one who is a “Yes” and a “No”. On the contrary He is God’s ”Yes”; for it is He who is the “Yes” to all God’s Promises. 2 Corinthians 1: 19 - 20

Spring is in the air. That line reminds me of that “old” song “Love is in the air”. Well spring and love are in the air as we celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary today the 4th September. I thank God that Lyn has put up with me for all these years.

The Word became a human being and, full of grace and truth, lived among us. We saw His glory, the glory which He received as the Father’s Only Son.

Colin’s saying it in a song this week …
Lyn and I are always on the “lookout” for something relevant to say in our weekly devotion. This message came unexpectedly while listening to LM radio. For our younger readers LM radio was “THE” radio station in the sixties and seventies. For Lyn and I it still is.  They played “Can we get to that”  which I hadn’t heard for ages and the message hit home anew striking a cord deep within. I think the lines that made me cringe the most were “Well we can get to church on Sunday and sing about brotherly love, but can we roll up our sleeves and start the work that must be done?”
