PSALM 8

Context: Mathew Henry says of this Psalm: God is to be glorified, for making known himself to us. (1,2) And for making even the heavenly bodies useful to man, thereby placing him (man) but little lower than the angels. (3-9)

I am old enough to remember the days before space exploration when we as kids would look to the stars and dream of reaching out and touching them. When the USSR launched Sputnik on October 4, 1957, the idea of reaching them no longer seemed so far-fetched. Then with the famous words of Neil Armstrong on 20 July 1969 of “One giant leap for mankind” even the moon seemed like just a stone’s throw away.

I was definitely not a “Christian” then, nothing more than a nominal Catholic at best, but I still gazed at the moon and stars in awe of the expanse and magnitude of their glory. I look back at those times now and see the hand of God preparing this hard head for later years of submission. The scope of the heavens reminding me of my place in the universe and the kingdom.

I still look at the heavens at night in awe, how could such a masterpiece be created? I know the answer of course but for someone who flunked stick people in art class, it is simply beyond comprehension and most comforting that in their vastness God knows my name.

What Every Christian Needs to Know

What we often miss, as Christians today can be thought of in three broad categories: the past, the present, and the future. Or, to put it another way, what waswhat is, and what is to come.

BreakPoint Daily

Scripture says woe to those who say that good is evil and that evil is good. That’s a culture-wide feature of our world. Each day, it seems, brings new and audacious ideas aimed at unraveling and misordering God’s very good creation…

God’s Providential Blessing

Romans 8:28

Y’all are probably wondering what in the world a little trailer has to do with a daily devotional. Well, welcome to the latest addition to the FSM/FBM arsenal. For some time now I have been looking for a lightweight trailer or camper to pull behind the bike for whenever we (the wife and I or on cross country trip my grandson and I) are riding together. I need one to put the additional clothing, camping gear and secure my LARGE medic bag.

With the Heartland Heroes Tour coming up in just a few short weeks I must admit I was getting a little concerned I would not be able to find one that was suitable and we could afford. Then of course GOD stepped in. He had this planned way in advance, my daughter saw this on Facebook (irony) messaged the folks, I go and look at it, of course, we get to gabbin (it’s a southern thing) I explain all about #Mission M25 Ministries, #RFTW, #Tribute to Fallen Soldiers, and the other ministries we are involved in, being a Chaplain/Medic and a church building counsultant and all. So get around to price, they were asking $500.00 which was not unreasonable, when I go to pay them, they hand me the title and say put it to good use in the ministry for the glory of God, no charge. What? I am sure I had the dumbest look on my face.

I promised after I cleaned it up and get all the stickers off and add the ones we want, I would run it by and show them. We exchanged cards (felt like I was in Japan 😉) and agreed to stay in touch. Can you say HUGE BLESSING!

As always God is in total control, His great concern over our daily lives causes causes all things to work together…according to His plan and purpose. That is Divine Providence, it makes our wisest plans look dumb by comparison and our best endeavors weak.


Grace Gems

Our wisest plans and best endeavors!

(Letters of John Newton)

We are disciples – Jesus is our Master. The world we live in is His school, and every person and event is under His management, designed to forward us in the great lessons which He would have us to learn – such as . . . self-denial,  a distrust of creatures, and   an absolute dependence upon Himself.

In this view,
 afflictions – are mercies,  losses – are gains,  hindrances – are helps, and all things, even those which seem most contrary – are working together for our good.

Creatures smile upon us – or frown upon us; caress us – or disappoint us; friends grow cool – and enemies become kind – just as His wisdom sees most expedient to promote our spiritual progress.

Where we look for most blessing – it often comes to little; where we look for nothing – we often obtain most benefit.

Our wisest plans and best endeavors at one time produce great troubles! At another time, what we do at random, and what we account the most trifling incidents – are productive of happy, lasting, and extensive consequences.

It is well for us if, by a long train of such changing, checkered experiences – we at length attain to some proficiency, and can say with David, “My soul, wait only upon God; for my expectation is from Him.”

The heart possession of two maxims of Matthew Henry, is well worth all that the acquisition can cost us:
  1. Every creature is to us – only what God makes it.
  2. We cannot expect too little from man – nor too much from God.


In this school I am placed – and these lessons I am aiming to learn. But I am a poor scholar and indeed any master but He who condescends to be my teacher – would turn me out as an incorrigible dunce!

Yet I sincerely wish to be willing to be what, and where, and how the Lord would have me be – to cast all my cares simply upon Him, and to be always satisfied in my mind that He assuredly cares for me!

Devotional Thought for Today – 03/09/2021

9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, 2 Timothy 1:9

2 Timothy 1

¹Paul expresses great affection for Timothy. (v.1-5) Exhorts him to improve his spiritual gifts. (v.6-14) Tells of many who basely deserted him, but speaks with affection of Onesiphorus. (v.15-18) 

In the second section, Paul encourages Timothy to be bold in his testimony and sharing of the Gospel for God alone has given him gifts to accomplish this task. 

Our main text for today should not be read without v.8, Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;

Note how it ends with God; which leads us directly to v.9 Who hath…  Some key points/biblical truths about found in verse 9:

      • It was God alone who saved us,
      • It was God alone who called us with a holy calling,
      • None of our works contributed in any way to our salvation
      • It was all according to His (God’s) own purpose
      • It was all according to His (God’s) own Grace,
      • This free gift was planned  in Christ Jesus before the world began
This verse makes it abundantly clear, as I have said many times, it is never about me and always about God.

What has God called you to do today? 

TODAY’S PRAYER

Thank You Father that You called me for a holy calling, according to Your purpose and great grace, which You granted me in Christ Jesus from all eternity. Let me never forget Faher, that You saved me and called me – not according to my own merit but by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. I pray I can live a life fulfilling the purpose you have set forth for me daily and I pray all this in Jesus’s name, AMEN.
