Prayer, Thought for Today

My prayer this day compares the righteous and the ungodly of David's Psalm 1. The blessed is founded in verse's 1-3, and the ungodly in verse's 4-5. For those that are righteous, there are three verse's compared to two verse's for the ungodly. This illustrates that the promises of Godly living is more than ungodly living in David's Psalm 1. This Psalm is paramount in the beginning of one-hundred and fifty Psalms. In the conclusion of Psalm 1:6, is a comparison of the Lord's vision; He knows the ways of the righteous and unrighteous: One lives --the righteous people--with Him, and the other perishes--the ungodly people--to Hades with Satan and his angels. Biblical wisdom, knowledge and understanding from the OT is foreknowledge--pointing the way--of Jesus in the NT and salvation through Him, and damnation through Satan. I pray that all will come in to the wisdom, knowledge and understanding for their souls salvation through Jesus. - Rev. Lynwood F. Mundy …

At one time, Paul pursued the goal of being the best rule keeper around, he made a pretty good pharisee, but God had another plan for him. Paul had to adapt his personal goals to follow God’s will for His life. You can’t go for the goal if you are living in the past. Perhaps God has more for us than the way we’ve always done things. You can’t press on if you are living in yesterday. You can’t go for the goal if you never show up for the game. God deserves your best ef…

Amazing Grace : 366 Inspiring Hymn Stories for Daily Devotions

March 7 BRIGHTEN THE CORNER Ina Duley Ogdon, 1877–? Christ gave Himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for Himself a people that are His very own, eager to do what is good. (Titus 2:14) “Do not wait until some deed of greatness you may do … but brighten the corner where you are!” These words were born out of frustration when the talented speaker, Mrs. Ina Ogdon, was selected to be on the Chautauqua Circuit. This would give her the opportunity to reach thousands around the country with her brilliant oratory. Just before she was to leave on the tour, her father was injured seriously in an automobile accident. Ina felt it necessary to cancel her plans so she could take care of her father. At first Mrs. Ogdon felt much anger and resentment against God for allowing this tragedy to happen. Gradually, however, she determined that she would be happy and remain “true to the many duties near” her. She would do her best to “brighten the corner” where God had placed her…
