Australia Ministry Trip (Sept 26-November 10, 2017)
From September 26 to November 10, 2017, my husband, daughter and I will be on a ministry trip in Australia and New Zealand. The places we will be visiting are shown on the map above - along with the dates in which we'll be in these places (and what we'll be doing while there). Please keep this ministry trip and all of us in your prayers! Blogs will appear daily throughout this time, as I have written them and scheduled them in advance. I welcome your comments - and enjoy them! Just know I will not have Internet access for much of this time. So, I will look forward to reading your responses upon my return. Thank you for your understanding! And please keep reading to complete the "Reading the Bible in a Year" challenge and blessing! I am very grateful to Claire for her faithful blog comments (please everyone - join her in sharing each day as a discussion blesses everyone so much more!) And I am thankful that Claire has graciously agreed to add a bit more into her daily comments during my time of absence. Please direct special comments or questions which require immediate responses to her (on this blog). Blessings as you continue your journey through God's Word this year!

Daily Bible Reading - May 7, 2017

Today's Reading:

Acts 17:16-34

Judges 7-8

Job 37

Listen to the Bible







Thoughts and Commentary on Today's Reading:

I love the descriptions of God's power, found in the Book of Job! Don't you? Consider a few of the explanations of God's creative might, demonstrated in some of the wonders He has made:
Job 37:5-6, 14-18 "God thundereth marvellously with His Voice; great things doeth He, which we cannot comprehend. For He saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of His strength. Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God. Dost thou know when God disposed them, and caused the light of His cloud to shine? Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge? How thy garments are warm, when he quieteth the earth by the south wind? Hast thou with Him spread out the sky, which is strong, and as a molten looking glass?"
For today, I will let Dwight Moody expound upon some of creative treasures which reveal the power of God. I chose this particular video because it shows God's power in the sky and in the snow, both of which are mentioned in Job. See the "treasures" of God in the snow! Watch it on Youtube.
