I’d like to share a bit of good news here on the first day of 2017. We were notified by FeedSpot last week that WordPoints.com has been chosen for their list of the “Top 30 Devotional Blogs and Websites For Christians.”
Among those who question the legitimacy of religious faith, it is often said that such faith is simply “wishful thinking.” By way of rebuttal, I want to suggest another definition of faith: “reasoned confidence.”
The Scriptures constitute the only authority that will never fail us, and we need to meditate on the importance of letting the Bible make our decisions for us, always giving its principles priority in our thought processes.
Between where we are right now and where we will be in eternity, the path may take many unexpected turns, but it is enough to know that He is waiting for us at the end of the journey, and in the meantime He will provide.
It’s not our ignorance that holds us back; it’s the false confidence that we’re farther down the road than we really are. If we see the need for growth at all, we don’t see it as urgent — and so we don’t work on it.
