The Forward Day by Day Meditation for May 14th, 2020
Isaiah 45:5-6 I am the Lord, and there is no other; besides me there is no god. I am you, though you do not know me, so that they may know, from the rising of the sun and from the west, that there is no one besides me; I am the Lord, and there is no other.
From the Archives: December 3, 1942
None of us believes that God wills war: it is contrary to the whole spirt of Christ, and we seek to banish it from the earth. But we do believe that God sometimes works in war, through bravery, sacrifice, and obedience, and through war, to teach us what sin does to the world, and to turn us from it.
The late Lord Lothian, British ambassador to Washington, said, “Hitler may well be the Scourge of God which will force the free world to abandon the selfishness and materialism which have been its undoing.” We cannot believe in the God who is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ and not believe that God is concerned with the gigantic struggle taking place on this earth. Let us ask God to show us what it means.
MOVING FORWARD: What are you worried about today? Hand it completely over to God. What space does that open in your life to something new?
