I Love Quiet Time in the Word
You know, Lord, I have done enough complaining about the aches and pains of aging. But there are some terrific advantages to getting older.
I am far more patient than I used to be. I enjoy people more and accept them as they are. And I have grown to appreciate regular quiet time with your Word. I used to be too busy—or thought I was too busy—to read my chapter a day. Now it’s the best time of my day. “Oh, how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long. Your statutes are my heritage forever; they are the joy of my heart” (Psalm 119:97,111). My joys are now twice as big because I know that you sent them. My troubles are only half as big because I know you are carrying them with me.
Your Word explains the riddle of human existence. Your Word tells me the truth, comforts my heart, and gives me hope. Your Word reveals that you are actively managing affairs behind the scenes to work all things together for the good of those who love you. Your Word assures me that you will never stop loving me, that I have great worth in your sight, and that you still have a use for me.
Tell me in today’s reading how I may serve you best.
Everyone fears death on some level. Even if we’re firmly rooted in Christ, there’s so much that’s unknown about what we’ll experience. And then comes judgment, which is another thing that can cause anxiety.
But unless Jesus returns first, death is something we’ll all experience. So we want to help you face death without fear by sending you our new book, Don’t Fear the End: Your Hope of Heaven Is Secure.
This book shows you how to live fearlessly, knowing your assurance comes from Jesus who has secured your salvation from beginning to end.
Don’t Fear the End is our thank-you for your donation to help take the timeless truths of God’s Word to more people all over the world through Time of Grace. Request your copy today!
