Daily Bible Reading & Devotion -- Psalm 34

Good Morning Snowy World!
When I went cleaning this morning I was greeted with a wonderful layer of soft powdery snow! As it is still coming down I'd say we are in for a few inches or more. I really like this kind of snow. It's easy to shovel for one thing, and it quickly covers up the dirty fall ground. This gives one a sense of purity, and that is exactly what Jesus and His righteousness does for us! It covers us so others can't see what a great big job of cleaning Jesus is doing on the inside! Thank you Jesus for your Holy Spirit working in us and through us!

Psalm 34

Another wonderful Psalm that reminds us about the blessing of "Fearing the Lord." I don't mean that we are scared of Him. Rather, we are completely yielded, trusting, reverent, and in love with Him. "The Fear of the Lord" is a big part of being a true follower of Jesus Christ. It is what keeps us on the straight and narrow. It is what teaches right from wrong. It is what gives us the courage to help the weary strangers. It is what protects us during our travels. "The Fear of the Lord" is something we ought to always be trying to teach our children, for it will give them great wisdom as the mature into adults. The Scripture does say, "The Fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom!" So, if you are not feeling very wise these days and are facing some life changing decisions remember to put your trust in the Lord and fear Him. He will direct you down the right path!

Yours in the Fear of the Lord,
Pastor Fred

A Prayer for Canada:

This week Lord Jesus we bring the country of Canada. Let the revival of your Word and Name sweep across this vast dominion. Let all ethnic groups that now call this great land home become hungry for something more, and find YOU! Let the Church arise to become the bastion of Truth that it is meant to be. Let you people become the light and power that spreads your Gospel throughout all this land!
We ask this all in the Name of Jesus Christ -- Amen!
