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 - February 14, 2017

Today's Reading:

Hebrews 10:19-39

Exodus 11:1-12:51

Proverbs 4

Listen to the Bible








Thoughts and Commentary on Today's Reading:

One of the most difficult things to do is to stay consistent and be faithful in our walk with God. We tend to get tired easily, in the "good fight of faith" (1 Timothy 6:12). We use the Heavenly Weapons (2 Corinthians 10:3-5) and gain the victory over temptation sometimes, but other times we get tired of fighting. We grow weary in "well-doing". But Scripture encourages us not to grow weary, for if we keep sowing in obedience, by His Grace, we will surely reap the worthwhile harvest. God has Promised:
Galatians 6:9  "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."
In today's reading, Hebrews gives us some powerful encouragements to keep on sowing in righteousness. As we do, we can rest assured that we will reap God's promised blessings:
Hebrews 10:23-25  "Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for He is faithful that promised;) And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the Day approaching."
 Hang in there, dear one! Keep on sowing, by His Grace. His Heavenly Harvest is sure to come.
