Read the “0806 Evening and Morning” devotion for today, by the late Charles Haddon Spurgeon.
“Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you. Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.” (Isaiah 35:3-6)
“But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.” (1Corinthians 14:3)
Good morning. Do you enjoy fellowship with other Christians? I hope so, because one day we will all be together in Heaven. Of course we will all be changed: if there is something in me that you dislike, it will either be gone, or your attitude adjusted to like it. But what about here on earth? We are all not anywhere close to being perfect, and yet Jesus came and died for all those imperfections. Why can’t we bring a little Heaven here to earth, and forgive those imperfections as Jesus did. We should strive to edify, exhort, and comfort each other. Would you consider helping the handicapped? Think of all these imperfections as disabilities. We should strengthen weak hands and feeble knees. Know and share what the Bible says about God taking care of us. “Vengeance is Mine.” saith the LORD. He will save you, He will repay: there is no need to fear. One day the blind will see, the deaf hear, the lame jump up and walk. Waters will break out and there will be streams in the desert. In the meanwhile, be forgiving. Cut everybody some slack (as the saying goes.): after all, there are others who are cutting you some slack too. And what if they are not?
“Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do? Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me.” (John 21:21-22)
