Fresh Hope – Day 64

I wonder what picture you have of God in your mind as you wake to a brand new day today?

Could it be that the picture has been blurred over the years by the opinions of others?

Could it be that you started out with completely the wrong picture, based on what you were taught?

It is possible of course, that your own experiences have somehow created a very different canvas. Maybe you have become bitter towards God over the death of a loved one, or that life has dealt you some other terrible blow, which in turn has distorted your portrait of God.

Every single person on the planet has an understanding of God, even atheists, but often our understanding is nothing more than a ‘misunderstanding’ of who God really is.

In 1936, the speaking clock was created for people that didn’t have a watch. They would dial the speaking clock number, (now 123) and receive a posh ladies voice that told them the precise time.

Today, over 30 million people still use the service. Why is it still so popular you ask?

For one reason… to bring our own clocks and watches into alignment with the ‘true’ time.

The Bible is the true picture of the nature and character of God. It is God’s true standard by which we can measure, check and adjust our beliefs by everyday.

If you’ve lost sight of the magnificence of God, then let the words of Psalm 145 help you to see more clearly again today.

Here are just a few of the amazing brush strokes found in the 21 verses of the Psalm.

…the Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love.

…the Lord is good to all.

…the Lord is faithful to all His promises and loving to all He has made.

…the Lord upholds all those that fall and lifts those that are bowed down.

…the Lord is righteous in all His ways.

…the Lord is near to all who call on Him.

…the Lord watches over all who love Him.

If you’ve ever travelled across a different time zone, then you will know that one of the first things you need to do is set your watch to the correct time of where you are going, otherwise, you’ll either be too late or too early for everything…

Want to walk in God’s time zone today? Then set your belief to His Word. You can count on it. It’s always correct.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 ‘All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.’
