His Word that Makes Real

Ac 17:28
For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

Heb 1:3
Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

Every time I wake up in the morning, I am reminded that, beforehand, God spoke. The continuance of my earthly consciousness and bodily functions are owing to God being pleased to have me live a day more. This is true of the whole universe. What science terms as the laws of physics are actually God deciding to do things the same way, day-in day-out, for all these thousands of years. These laws have no power of their own to function automatically. They derive their ability to be from God. That's why "miracles" should not be outside the realm of reality to a true thinking Christian's mind. They are simply instances wherein God chooses to act a little differently than before--or perhaps not so little, as with the Egyptian plagues.

All this is cause for PRAISE and THANKSGIVING. You are alive today. God took delight in giving you one more day of earthly existence. Honor Him by the recognition of this fact and more other facts about Him in a book called, the Bible.


  1. Good word, brother. I often remind my children of these facts when they start complaining. It seems to be changing them little by little, as it changes us to dwell on the simplest reason for giving God thanks: by His will, and through His power, and in His mercy, we're alive.

    I really like your blog. It's quickly become a favorite stop. Thanks for all the focused and edifying posts!

    Grace & peace,
    Derek Ashton

  2. Brother,

    I am humbled that, in my own small way, I have served the needs of your soul.

    May more of Christ be formed in you.
