Destiny -- Daily Bible Reading -- Psalm 49

Good Morning World! God is so Good!  We must never forget that we serve a great big wonderful God.  Too often we set our minds upon our day, schedule, work, play, agenda and we forget that it is because of Him that we live and move and have our being.  It is Jesus who is the real reason for living!

Psalm 49

What is it about life that divides us?  There are the rich, and there are the poor.  Some of the rich were poor, and many of the poor have tasted riches.  Then there are those of us somewhere in the middle.  We are neither rich, nor poor.  Even though we are all human; men women and children our monetary status seems to cause us to be divided.  David dives into this situation somewhat in this chapter.

David wants to have everyone's attention.  He has something very important to discuss.  The topic is so strong in his mind that he even puts it to music and asks the sons of Korah (the praise band) to sing it aloud.  The topic is destiny.  The discussion is wealth, poverty and death.  What good will your riches do you in the end?  You cannot redeem yourself with money.  You cannot buy your way into heaven.  You cannot purchase a heavenly mansion.  You cannot even save a fellow man with you riches.  You can do a lot of good with wealth and money, but it will not save your soul.  Someone else will spend what you have what you have so desperately tried to build and save.

In the end we are all poor and impoverished.  In the end we will all be left with nothing.  In the end we will all be left to answer for our actions.  In the end we all have the same value as the beggar on the street corner.  When the bell tolls we may be morned and missed, or others may rejoice, but the fact remains you will see Jesus, and He will want to know what you've done.  Did you surrender you life into the hands of the creator, or did you squander your life to the whims of the world?

Today is a good day to decide to change direction.  Call on Jesus today.  He will give you a peace that you will not be able to explain.  Money can't buy it, and poverty can't steal it.  It is the joy of knowing that your Saviour lives, and has redeemed your soul!

Yours for a new Destiny,
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!
