SAA Notes

The troubles of life can come thick and fast for the believer, just as for David. Look again at Psalm 71:17-20 and notice the resurrection hope. Let us finish our pilgrimage as we began it – with persevering hope, joy and faith.

SJA Notes

* Faithful God, thank You for opening our eyes, that we might see, and our ears, that we might hear.

“So even to old age and gray hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim your might to another generation, your power to all those who come.”

David’s words, his intent, to proclaim God’s wondrous deeds and might to another generation – They are all part of God’s word.

We can sometimes be at a loss to describe God with intent, His character, His acts. It can be hard at times to ascribe greatness to Him.

But it is here in God’s word that we discover who God is and what He has done.

So it is HIS WORD that teaches us how to praise Him, how to give Him the glory due His Name, how to teach and proclaim to the next generation.

What a wonderful thing this is! What an active-intentional-loving God we have that He would be so kind and generous to give us His word that tells us who He is.

And blessing upon blessing, God the Son (Je3sus) sent God the Spirit to us, to be our helper – And He writes His word upon our hearts!

God’s word is far better than any textbook, it is more than a roadmap, it runs deeper than a best-selling highly-acclaimed story – God’s word is written on the hearts of God’s people and planted deep within us in a way that no other _word_ can be.

Praise God for these wonderful truths. His deeds are marvellous, His faithfulness without end!

* Father God,

Thank You for Your word that You have given to us. Please write it upon our hearts today, little by little, line upon line.

Please plant Your word deep down in us, and grow it, that we might be good soil and bear much fruit.
